So my opinion is a bit special, because this pedal is very very well made (no doubt about it) but compared to my Mojo JTM with which I wished the couple, it was just very, very blah.
Let me explain this pedal tested alone (and especially before Mojo JTM) has all the qualities of a boutique pedal: quality cabling, switch knobs and top, true bypass, and excellent sound with setting options very interesting with the famous Cream and Cut. The tonal palette is wide enough, it will sound an almost clean to overdrive that allows you to tease an AC / DC or Aerosmith without any worry, but it is not a distortion, it's still an overdrive. It was something in the clear saturation in the sense that every note arpeggio even doing very well, no sound to mush. The "Cream" as the name suggests will add a creamy side to her, there will be bass and lower midrange a little firmer in pushing the knob to right.The "Cut" for his acts on the highs and wired backwards, I mean, the more you shoot, the more high frequencies are cut. Coupled with the Cream you get to things nice and very diverse. The volume of the pedal against disappointed me because we still have to push almost two thirds to three quarters or to have the same volume when the pedal is bypassed.
It remains, however, in an area that goes from blues to rock, AC / DC style Foo Fighters, Jack White ... But the big task that will require elsewhere. So overall very good pedal with the shop that everyone has in mind mind.
Now to comparo with Mojo JTM because the goal was to make them play together on certain sounds:
Well slap, the Mojo literally burying the Benrod. Already, the reserve volume is really consistent eten addition, JTM sounds "big", not genre heavy distortion, but really big sound even at low gain, it seems a really thrown forward with its bottom and the lower midrange as it is not permissible to give a monster magnitude signal, a fabulous grain compresses only the fifth in the last race of the drive. So it sounds airy, open, close, it takes its place in a mix. What really awesome. At the same time, the only thing you can really blame the pedals Tom (NOS in Paris), it may be the peeling paint too quickly ^^.
So my Cream Can in all this, bah when I passed it after the comparison test with the JTM, well ..... the sound seemed anemic, small, feeble, I really want more of the plug; and even by coupling it eats dynamics Mojo whether before or after the chaining, it adds a gain that will compress its there or Mojo let the sound breathe and the knob Cream Cut and make gadget blow. Because the tone of the Mojo, barely turned really is and does not pretend. I'm a bit radical but it's really the feeling that I had. And it was strange for a pedal 150 new bullets. I think she is nevertheless because the build quality is to go, and the sound itself is very good, it's just that I had better before I think; I really like the texture of my JTM, and in the end I took a 2nd Mojo that this one will, fits really well with the first.
Note that I tested these two pedals on my Laney L5T-112, so the basis of the clean sound is still downright good.

So Benrod I certainly retesterai still occasionally out of curiosity, hoping that other commodities will further convince me. In the end, I sold it.

NB: sorry for this review pretty special, but I was forced to give my opinion also on a 2nd pedal to illuster weaknesses of Benrod. So we have a little 2 reviews in one.

Benrod Electro Cream Can
Overdrive distortion, true bypass, made in France.


Very simple.
4 buttons, 1 switch.
FYI: I play the Apache or shadows Ray Vaughan eg in clean sound like fender or vox, and cat, steve vai, or black sabbath on the type mesa overdrive. Try it, it is rather funny, especially when you see the face of the people who look at the pedal and scratches his head when you play cowboy from hell hahaha!


Here's my take, watch it stings.
A D, do not compare to a tube screamer as sure it has nothing to see, it is a distortion, with one grain at a vox in my opinion. Vintage with a vintage guitar but not that much with a modern guitar.
Or three quarters of the test, and another video on the net are doing with simple strat bobinage.Alors do not trust.
The sound of Judge Fredd, I have never found the no longer with the unit ....
The sav BENROD does not exist, in case of failure, you Sort this out. C's lived. Thank you very much.
Pedal a real true bypass! Ptin c is not hard to see, you unplug it, if it sounds, c is true bypass!
I m used primarily in overdrive, c is, for example, that it transforms me the sound of a transistor amp into that of a tube amp and that, c is the top. As against such in a fender lamp, it m bored. Character without character, it is always hard to explain. It is very inspiring to me and it is the largest c.
I re-emphasizes the bypass, she eats nothing !!! Even the batteries last a long time, not against trapping by and it also is designed c.


I have it for 3 years I think, a nice gift for my wife, so I would keep that until it burns.
Mine has never bougée against by my friend who has had 2 failed was vagabond from the outset by his dealer Albi I think. We try to reach BENROD in vain .for Made in France it Derche doing wrong, it's not the pedals 20 euros.quand luthier I see, the other side of the world who send me the parts and answered me in Casa Anna-Paula the day
Without this history, the pedal is very good. Not much character but in top component and it is also important to let the transparent guitare.assez sing really.
I'm still glad to have it even if I do not Rasht.
After j not like wampler handmade so I'm also a bit demanding ptetre lil;)

MacB's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Good overdrive pedal standard, made in France"

Benrod Electro Cream Can
No rack, not editable
Analog technology priori
9V battery connector taken
The battery is not supplied with, we will need you to invest more, if you just play with a battery.

The test was done in a store company stratocaster american standard 2014 and an amp FENDER BLUES JUNIOR recent.


4 knobs: volume, gain, cut, cream.
Volume and Gain interact to give a good range of sounds more crunchy with more biting.
The Cut (like a Vox amp) is the inverse of a "Tone" and cuts frequencies. The Cream gives more "creamy" to your overdrive sound.

Editing sounds is easy, but it seemed to me that it has the same defect as his cousins ​​not handmade, it compresses the sound, especially with the cut, which is a tendency to eat the signal.

Being picky about these stories signal, I can tell she eats the signal, we gain crunch, heat is undeniable, but we lose power because of this loss of signal. I would say this is a good pedal but associate with a boost or another pedal, the preamp of your amp, may suffice. Use alone on a fender amp types, without specific channel saturation without integrated preamp is little, he need something else with.

For me a good overdrive should not compress the sound, it must act as a preamp in my opinion, but more like a boost, with the dirty side of the overdrive and more. For example, I compared it with a TC electronic MojoMojo, although the latter is made in Indonesia, the sound is much less compressed than the CREAMCAN of BENROD is felt after my essait two pedals.


Indeed, distinctive overdrive that is effective, however it there's compression, the signal is attenuated by the pedal. After that remains correct with respect to BOSS or MXR, choose BENROD is a good choice compared to those marks. It is clear that this is not the "real true bypass" for me, the big downside of this pedal, since the signal is attenuated from the engagement of the pedal, which does not occur with the true bypass, true normally.

Finally, as the MojoMojo, mentioned previously, this is not a distortion, it is an overdrive, the sound is fat, warm. In addition, the "cream" feature enhances this aspect, until you get an effect somewhat dirty fuzz, but I repeat quite compressed.


I do not have. But then I had a lot of overdrive, it is far better than a tube screamer home or IBANEZ MAXON, a BOSS SD1 home or a home MXR overdrive. She is more than a few "bent" for me, the sound is better than MXR, MAXON and other brands, but we are on the same type of product, but made with better components.

Indeed, the sound is much more open compared with MXR and MAXON. I thought she was a strong resemblance MojoMojo home TC ELECTRONIC where older model (but was more built for rock), because on the one hand, it is "warm", she has " mojo "is undeniable, but it compresses. It is not or only partially "true bypass" for me.

Maybe I should try the one with my own amp and my old shovel, maybe the opinion would have been different. I note that these pedals "custom" BENROD or other manufacturers, are more made to be played with high quality material term or instrument amplifier to take advantage of all its potential.

+ = Qualities components
Robustness of the housing
The sound is transparent, it is not colored
This is an overdrive, not a distortion (this is not a TS8 or TS9)

- = Value / price, the price is in my opinion a little revise downward
It is not "true bypass" is the big downside of this pedal is a pity, because if it is true bypass, no effect of compression, signal attenuation it would be almost perfect see perfect.

Benrod Electro Cream Can
Overdrive par excellence, of CreamCan Benrod will satisfy all guitarists looking for a vintage sound.
The slight overdrive boost your real tube amp, this pedal does not lack versatility.


4 knobs: volume, gain, cut, cream.
Volume and Gain interact perfectly to give you a good range of sounds more crunchy with more biting.
The Cut (like a Vox amp) is the opposite of a "Tone" and cuts frequencies. Personally it is set in the first quarter between 8am and 9am to compensate for the lack of treble on the pedal.
The Cream is defined as the smoothness of the pedal, but personally it is set to 0.


I use it before ABY-Box sends the sauce on a Marshall JCM900 (Channel A, Gain = 10) and a Vox AC30 (Canal + Normal Boost Earnings = 8), so much so that it boosts my sound.
I use it as main overdrive, and I + drop off the knobs on my Les Paul for a little clearer sound.
However, if I need to have some more potatoes, I turn the BOOST circuit my Box of Rock is located just before the Creamcan. Try it!! Creamcan + Box of Rock: the sound does not change the style, but it gives you a slap, and screaming your lights a little harder!


Very good pedal, solid, handmade.
