ManuNZ's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Billy Gibbons pedal ??"

Bixonic Expandora
Classic pedal on top, but not practical because behind must be removed with a screw cap to access the different combinations of sound. Namely, crunch, saturation or distortion.


Very easy to use, gain, tone, a level ...


Although I do not use this scene on foot as it is not suitable for my setup, I find explosive!
Particularly connected to my head Marshall JTM45. Do not be afraid to push the saturation and play with the knob of the guitar. Great sound, a little dirty to ZZtop (obviously), very friendly and dynamic, it really does! One of the very best pedals it was given me to play. I prefer the Ibanez Tube Screamer or Maxon and to the driver at Boss Blues, much more character!


I use it for a few years. Apart from the little problem adjusting to the rear, this pedal is really to recommend!

le reverend's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Sound, but loud and ergonomics shit"

Bixonic Expandora
Pedal Disto kind TubeScreamer, but nastier. Level, gain, tone, classical


Easy to use as you do not make choices about the type of saturation. Indeed, one has the right to go 3 dampers for a not too bad a saturated overdrive which is much more, but
1) the settings are made by dipswitches (already easy in concert)
2) Internal (ben see practical it)
3) and unscrew the box to get there (and save money!)
In short, it is not the top in terms of ergonomics


Very good sound, you can make the most mild to the downright fat stuff that disintegrates the end of term TS is organic, it's good, it's juicy.
You can mount strong enough in distortion but it's still classic, it is not too modern in tone.
Well then its good, but why not a good score then? Ben because as long as you are on battery is good. But I tried to connect to power supply, then there is a lot of noise when it saturates much. Too much for me, I have no such problem with pedals that are at least as many grahou, suddenly it feared group with good volume. Should a noisegate, but I have not it in stock, I did not have to use this pedal.
Too bad, because the sound is really good


I've had pfiouuuuu, chandeliers. One of my favorite in terms of its distortion.
I bought it cheap, nearly 1,000 USD at the time, there was almost 20 years I think (and at the time it was costing a pedal in the 300-450 USD, no more), so c 'was an expensive pedal. she gave me satisfaction for many years in my apartment, so we not play high Volme.
Too bad I do not use it more but group configuration, the problem of background noise will be eliminated at this level. As for playing on battery, I do not want to piss me off with that.
Too bad for the crappy shot inside the box settings, but should not be twisted to think a pedal like that (besides the next generation had solved this problem).
So a mixed review.

delayedbis's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" a temperament"

Bixonic Expandora
versatile overdrive version japan

a drive, a tone and volume, a form of small round grassouilette.

Japanese JRC

in out 9v power supply or batteries (sounds better with a battery, go figure)


plug and play

One downside: the galley screwdriver to 3 internal trimpots: crunch, od, distortion

The current version with the choices on the top is a notch below, quite frankly, do not make me believe otherwise in blindtest.


a wide range of sounds in a small format, clean edge without hoping to gain metalheads, not for distortion;

Caviar for blues rock, all guitars combined

I love the crunch mode and clean sound distortion, and yes


5 months of use, always present;

For this type of sound, it is very accurate

I like the format, sobriety, I hate the screwdriver

Choice again
