Product Description

The Friedman BE sound has become the go to tone for those who want an extremely high gain version of the iconic British black and gold amps. Before that tone away was locked away in amps that easily cost over £1000, now you can get that tone in any kind of valve amp using just a single pedal. The Friedman BE-OD is an extremely powerful pedal that produces the exact tone you would expect with that BE branding.

The original BE tone is over the top high gain madness with a refined British midrange and note to note clarity that is just unmatched. Somehow Dave Friedman managed to fit a tone that requires a huge valve amp in to a single pedal unit. That includes all of the gain that makes the amp so popular with everything from blues to classic rock and metal lovers.

6 Controls

On the front of the pedal you have 6 controls that make it so easy to dial in your exact sound. On the EQ side you have Bass, Treble and Presence controls which all work very similar to how you would expect an amp to respond. Moving on to the other controls you have the usual level and gain controls as well as something called the tight control. This single control helps tighten up the low end for heavier sounds and give that tube amp like response.

Made In The USA

Like everything that caries the Friedman badge the BE-OD overdrive pedal is proudly designed and  made in the USA by some of the best engineers that have ever touched an amplifier. This is the perfect replication of the BE-100 amp in a compact pedal format. 

Pro Grade

Since the pedal was first released it has found its way onto the pedalboards of many major artists including people like Tosin Abasi who now uses the BE-OD for his main live drive sound through a clean valve amp. He has two of these on his pedalboard, that's how much he loves them!

Perfect hot rod marshall tone

Mr Nick Harris10th Jun 2022

High gain pedals really need a mid control, was going to return this as it was lacking but after another day of tweaking I managed to get the sound the way I wanted. I have not messed with the internal gain trim pot but I may open it up. There are actually some good heavy crunch/classic rock sounds in there if you turn the gain down to 9 o'clock or lower, but who buys this pedal for that?

Absolutely the sound I’ve been after for a while, straight from the box. It’s on the heavy side of OD, a lovely fat saturated contrast to my crunchy EHX Soul Food.
