    I have a BBB and tried the Black Magic. They are nothing alike. Hope this helps.

    Black Majic is a distortion
    1 knob Balance Is like a COT on steriods.Clean boost about 2/3 up then fuzz.
    Very loud.

    Yes, the Balance goes from a virtually clean boost to distortion.
    The Black Magic doesn't have any clean sounds in it even at the lowest settings. Both great pedals.

    does the BM clean up with the guitar volume, are there any internal tone adjustments. Is it a van halen sound distortion. Thanks

    The guitars volume does act like a gain control with my BM.It cleans up nicely but is'nt clean,sort of fuzzlike when the volumes down,and very Van Halenish when volumes rolled up. I have a 1 knob BM proto,so I don't know how different it is from the 2 knob version.
