So I just got the BJF BBOD, and I have to say it is the best pedal with three knobs or less I've ever heard or played. Or even more, if I could only have any one pedal, I think it would be the one I wanted. I played it with both my Pritchard, and for a test, my cheap Carvin SX100D. It sounded great with both. I would say that through a cheap SS amp, it is the equal of the V-Stack in terms of getting a tube amp sound. High gain humbuckers will have a noticable amount of overdrive on the minimum gain setting, though. I have to note that I thought the sound samples of the BBOD sounded like a Rangemaster or similar treble boosting fuzz into a tube screamer type pedal. Tonally, I wonder if such was an inspiration for this pedal. (It seems true of the DRD too, though IMO the DRD seems 85% rangemaster and 15 % tubescreamer.) But this pedal has the ability of a fuzz to clean up great with the guitar volume knob, has the openness of a fuzz without the flubby bass, but just enough tubescreamer behind it to provide some overdrive smoothness that fuzz pedals can't get. Also, I had already recently been using a fuzz type into a tubescreamer type. I was getting a tone not far from the BBOD samples at www.custom-sounds.com. I tried to get the sound of those samples before the BBOD came and actually could get the same sounds. So when I got the BBOD, those samples turned out suprisingly accurate. I was able to tweak the settings on my Throbad ODB and my MI Audio Blue Boy Deluxe only slightly and was able to match the BBOD to an insanely close level. Actually, the BBD could get pretty close to the BBOD on its own (when character was at 70%) when the guitar volume was at max. When I rolled it down, it was clear that the BBOD responded better to the guitar volume knob. But my Throbak ODB can actually get quite good Rangemaster sounds, and responds to rolling back on the guitar volume knob better than any pedal I've every played or heard. I see why others felt it can replace a COT50 because it can get the COT's dynamic tone and then even more tones. Well, with the combination of the ODB set to mildly dirty germanium and pre-gain limiter on, followed by the BBD, I really can match the sound of the BBOD so close that I wouldn't recognize the difference in a sound clip or blind live comparison. There was one difference though. When rolling down the volume on the BBOD, it maintains the treble, even on my Steinberger Spirit with Dimarzio ToneZone, but also stays a little gritty, yet in a good way. The ODB/BBD combo OTOH gets clean while keeping a treble sparkle that a Tonezone hardly gets with volume at 10. So I actually prefer my ODB/BBD combo ... cause why get a sound with only one pedal that you could get with two? Or more seriously, the ODB and BBD can get tones on their own that are also great and useful even if my favorite is for them stacked. Though I'm tempted to keep the BBOD for an investment, I'll probably sell it after a little more fun with it. I'll probably torture potential buyers by selling it only in combination with some pedal that is as hard to sell as this one would be easy. I think I see a future for more pedals that sound like one part uncompressed fuzz or treble booster that clean up incredibly well, another part overdrive that smooths out the fuzz just enough to tame it. How many other single pedals like this are there besides the BBOD and DRD? The V-Stack Classic claims too and sounds great, but I didn't really hear much treble booster in it. Are their any dual pedals like this? An ODB/BBD combo would seem the ultimate one box, IMO. Another thought. I don't think people realize that the BBD could be used as a great EQ pedal, even a clean one. It really works well for that. It might overlap with the Sea Blue EQ in this use.
