What are your impressions on the new BB pedal?

. Plus it goes really well with the RC, even better than the AC in my opinion.
I said this in another thread, the BB cleans up better than the AC, and when you turn down the gain all the way you get the RC booster sound.. And the BB is a keeper to me because I can depend on it to sound good with what ever amp I am using..I felt that the BB on its lowest settings sounded very similar to the RC (a very good thing). I didn't keep it mind you, but it was an excellent unit!
I heard this before I got mine but it doesn't sound anything like a Marshall to my ears, Marshall's are crunchy and gritty and the BB is smooth city, without a trace of grit or fizz.Originally posted by Bradders
BB - like a little Marshall in a box - more body and girth and grind than the TS,
I agree, I think this pedal is a clear overdrive with a touch of compression, that is nothing like a Marshall, maybe a little like a Dumble sound, but it has that clarity that the AC does not have.. It can make my Les Paul sound a little like a strat as long as I have the RC in front.. I keep the Gain down low and the volume up above unity..I heard this before I got mine but it doesn't sound anything like a Marshall to my ears, Marshall's are crunchy and gritty and the BB is smooth city, without a trace of grit or fizz.
Scott pretty much nails it.Originally posted by Scott Peterson
Between the Timmy, RC, AC and BB - I have all the overdrives I need.
The RC is my clean booster.
I bought an RC from Shane last year and I love it (Thanks Shane!). Also, I typically have the same "ear" as Shane given his reviews, but I have to disagree on the BB/AC comments.58lespaulman said:No Problem bro, glad you like it.. I am a big fan of all three of these pedals.. But I am falling for the BB, RC, Combo..
