Just replaced my old Tube Screamer.
Jimbobirish, 08.03.2021
I tried this on a friend's board and had to buy one! for a Blackface fender am used with a strat or tele, I think this is the most expressive drive pedal, cleans up well and honestly reacts to the volume and tone controls like a hard pushed amp.

Pros: Clear and expessive eq controls, very usable gain and volume levels, top build quality, and now the power jack has been moved to the top, far better location.

Cons: The design is a little dated, but that's me being overly picky...

For a fender into fender player, looking for some balls to their drive tone with an nice cutting mid end, look no further!

For me, it's either BB or TS or both depending on the amp I am using. The switch needs to be pressed pretty hard on this one but I got used to it or it's easier now.

BB vs TS vs OCD
philpam, 29.11.2019
Je possède les trois OD les plus célèbres, avec une nette préférence pour la Xotic BB, elle supplante à mon humble avis la Tube screamer 808, et enterre la Fulltone OCD, pour les raisons suivantes :

OCD : beaucoup trop sombre et pas assez d'aigues, le problème c'est que l'unique bouton de tone ne règle pas grand chose! alors il faut la prendre comme elle est, c'est a dire pour moi une pédale peu utilisable et plutôt sourde dans sa tonalité, à écarter donc.

Tube Screamer : même chose un unique bouton de tone ce qui est dommageable, on est donc contraint à utiliser une overdrive trés typée médium mais c'est une TS hein, ne conviendra pas a toutes situations.

Xotic BB : Enfin un réglage réaliste en terme d'égalisation, une polyvalence, un clean bost ou une od en actionnant le gain,
La sonorité est naturelle et efficace, dans divers registres.
Le grain est organique et fluté avec des harmoniques chantantes!
Associée avec le EP Xotic c'est très bon aussi.

Je recommande la BB à tous les chercheurs d'une bonne OD,
Ceci dit elle sont toutes les trois de grande qualité mais il faut qu'elles vous convienne , question de gout donc.
Pour moi ce sera la BB.

Par contre laissez tomber les clones à 30 e, il n' y a pas de secrets, je les ai tous essayés ça ne vaut rien en fait, et vous le regrettez.
La Xotic est une peu chère mais c'est la prix à payer pour une bonne pédale qui ne vous décevra pas et que vous garderez toute votre vie.

Un overdrive de lo más completo
Rick10, 24.01.2021
Lo he estado probando durante horas y aún me quedan cosas por descubrir.
Personalmente me gusta mucho cuando lo pongo junto a un booster que es cuando veo que se le puede sacar todo su potencial.

Es un pedal con una cantidad buena de medios y muy versátil. Los controles de treble y bass le dan un gran abanico de posibilidades sonoras. Además puedes utilizar el pedal como overdrive suave, junto con un booster una distorsión cañera, e incluso también puede funcionar como booster limpio. detrás de otro pedal que no tenga medios.

Un pedal de 10 hecho por Xotic. Nunca defraudan.
