Xotic Effects BB Preamp v1.5 Pedal
The Xotic Effects BB Preamp is an incredibly versatile pedal that is usable at the feet of any style of guitarist. Its 30dB+ clean boost and adjustable -¦15dB two band active EQ means you can change the voice, harmonics and tone of your guitar without sounding processed. The BB Preamp's pre-gain stage lets you dial in a warm overdrive that is great for clicking on for solos and more energetic sections of your music. As with all Xotic Effects, the BB is true bypass, so you won't get any signal interference when you switch it off. If you're looking for a preamp that can let you sculpt your tone and find your voice, look no further than the Xotic Effects BB Preamp.

This is an excellent and versatile drive pedal capable of offering pleasing dirty/clean and gentle drive sounds through to a little beyond the gain of a standard tube-screamer. Having bass and treble controls offers a wide range of tone adjustment making it easier to dial in the required sounds. This pedal is also great for gently pushing other drives for extra sustain. I have found nothing at all to dislike about this pedal.
This unit, at the price point, is really useful bit of kit. Boosts the signal then dial in the gain for really musical distortion. I'm going into a Mesa Boogie Studio + set clean so with tha amp crunch tones and pedal tones it opens up the possibilities.
