- Great Overdrive/Distortion Pedal Review by Chuck McCrory
Features Value Quality
The pedal is nice & small (The same size as an MXR pedal) but “Road Worthy” with a nice textured orange paint job.
I am using the pedal in front of Fender Hot Rod Deluxe III amp, using one of 3 PRS guitars and an American Stratocaster.
I found the Xotic BB-preamp to be a nice, smooth & creamy distortion pedal. I use it in the clean channel of my amp and get just enough drive for playing blues or classic rock. You can find a few YouTube videos out there where the artist listed above use this pedal to enhance the overdrive in their touring amps.
Another great feature is the treble & bass EQ knobs, which definitely gives you more tweaking capabilities. I give this pedal an A+!!!
