Billy and more in a box
Kerr M., 15.04.2016
As a long time fan on Sheehan's playing. Ive previously tried to emulate his sound but never really got close.

This does his sound as of the first Winery dogs Album convincingly.

But i all does not stop at that. I play in a few different bands and find this a swiss army knife of a pedal. The clean channel can be used on its own as fantastic compressor without adding the notch drive channel.
The drive channel can be adjusted from a deep growl to rasping fuzz.

The loop conectors add extra features. allowing you to have two separate signal paths to any effect.

The only cavet is when the drive channel is 11 - 1 o'clock Theres does seem to be some phasing issue which drops the bass out a bit. I resolved this by placing a graphic pedal in the clean loop as a low pass filter.

Great pedal - so many features

What a great package you get!
ProgBass, 13.02.2014
This pedal delivers more than anonye would expect!
It is built very great, it has got some foam material on the back side to put it on the floor, done very noble.
Features:
this pedal has got
- distortion
- compression
- boost
in one. And even if those 3 parts are excellent together in one, it is not enough!
It allows you to mix the clean and the distorted signal on the one hand and it allows you to put it other effects into clean or distorted channel on the other hand.
Thus you get a very powerful pedal!
How about the sound? I put the compression to level high und boosted in the clean signal. And wow! You really feel the power your sound gets. The distortion can be done from crunch to very distorted and the level can be done from middle driven tones to high driven tones.
If you seek for something very powerful, try the EBS Billy Sheehan.

Simply amazing
15.11.2016
It's not the most craziest overdrive ever, but since the clean and over-driven signal is separated and you are able to set different volume for both, it just does wonders. No matter what level of overdrive you prefer, you will never lose the clean sound of your bass. That is at least unless you bring the volume down. Really an amazing peace of gear.

- I am not sure if the missing option of powering the pedal with 9V battery would be a minus for someone, but the 9V adapter input is enough for me

If you want drive, you'll get drive
Rocky.16, 16.02.2018
It's awesome, powerful, simple, versatile, easy to use little pedal.
You can even get that powerful and sparkly Steve Harris kind of tone. And on the other side you can get full drive, metal sound playing with fingers or pick.
It's definitely worth buying.
