    so there I was cruising around ebay Germany when I happened on a BBOD and just for grins I put a bid in and went to sleep...when I woke it was mine:eek:

    this is my 3rd one and I'm not sure why I got it but something compelled me to check this out one more time...I sold it because it just didn't blend with my style and rig at that time...I tend to like more articulation...I still have the same amp but different speakers...different guitars and different cables...

    I am currently using an MO'D as my bread and butter goto dirt box...

    from anyone that still has one what can I expect from the BBOD this time around?

    what's your setup and why has it stuck around?

    I saw that auction a few days ago. I think it went for a good price, congrats! Would have loved to bid on it but have that territory covered so I was able to control my gas. Unfortunately I cannot answer any of your questions so this is just kind of bump in your favour.
    :BEER
    Have fun with the BB OD!

    ooh! Buying the same pedal again seems scary. I've always hoped I will one day find peace in knowing... no, I've tried that, don't need it - and finally be cured from pedaldreaming. /C

    Love mine - my Mighty Blue that is - two channel Baby Blue:

    [​IMG]

    I use one channel stand alone for a fat, Fat, FAT and smooth lead tone. I use the other channel stand alone as a warm clean boost with just a bit of break up to it. I also stack it into my Voodoo Labs Sparkle Drive for a fat, yet articulate distortion that can peal the paint off of the walls!

    Yep, a very distinctive pedal. Il allows me to dial a smooth and creamy lead tone on a sparkly clean Fender amp. It's like having 2 different amps at my disposal. I use a Fulldrive OD type for more traditional grint.

    Mine has a problem though, sometimes when I switch on, ther'e no more signal... Not a gig friendly feature. So I keep it for the weekly jam, where I don't care to miss the 2 first measures of the solo :horse

    thanx guys...it was my first BJF pedal and I was expecting transparent and it wasn't and I was dissapointed...I traded it for a DynaRed which worked better with my setup and more to my liking at that time...

    it'll be nice to check it out again and see if my tastes have changed...

    ok it came today and I was expecting to give it a whirl and flip it...fat chance this thing...at least for today is killin and has got my MO'D nervous for the first time...;)

    one question where is unity on the volumn control...I seem to have to crank it to about 1 OC with the gain at about 10OC...not much volumn on tap...is this correct?

    It sounds totally sweet on the top end even with the treble cranked and it has lots of liquid sustain that is just articulate enough...goes into this early feedback even at low volumn with the PGC kicked in...very cool...

    edit...the above was done with my 335 which it seems perfectly suited for...with my single coil guitars it was almost too bright...

    anyone else feel that way? Kills with hums and not as nice with single coils?

    I gotta stay off of ebay and out of the emporium:D!

    I had the same experience with mine. Found it great with buckers but didn't play well with singles...not a huge problem being a buckers snob mostly. The only reason i sold mine was that i found it didn't play well with others. A bit of a problem child that only liked to play on it's own...didn't stack well at all. However, it would be my choice as a Desert Island pedal without a 2nd thought... ;)

    I thought it rocked with singles.

    sadly I agree...it's kinda my conclusion as well...really really cool with hums and with the PGC pushin it but the MO'D just kills with everything and is more versatle to boot...I am just way more expressive with the MO'D...I shot them both out together and by going back n forth I can better understand why everyone really digs this pedal...but its limitations will force me to dump it...

    I think anyone would be hard pressed to top the M'OD as a good all rounder :D Fun to try though...
