Bogner Ecstasy Blue
This is an Overdrive, decorated d 'a Boost with 3 bands and several équalo switch setting sensible reproduce the typical sound of the famous amp of the same brand.
Everything is available analog "by hand", that is very convenient to repeat, beef or live ... you can quickly adjust the sound to the ear.
Although fairly imposing it integrates perfectly into a pedalboard with input jacks and 9V power supply, manufacturing is neat and very strong.

UTILIZATION

The pedal is very easy to use, the pots are aptly named for the man who knows adjust an amp,
the large number of toggle switch allows you to set the type of saturation with desired precision.
For my part, after a year of use I am Variac: OFF the side tube amp missing fishing don 't embale, those seeking the "root" Blues or maybe ... well I don' have not yet deepened thing.
the mode is Blue, I have bought a pedal Bogner it's not for sound Marschall Zounds!
Pre eq structure and then ... I put mystery mostly B1 and 101 which must match the preamp of a well known ... at BOGNER! Amp!
Volume and 60% gain which varies between 40 and 60% depending on my mood. For Equalisaton I'm rather a fan of 6-3-3 expensive to Didier Deschamps ... with 6 acute.
For BOOST I put the gain and volume to 90%, that is supposed to be my sound for solos, to exit the MIX.

SOUND QUALITY

Ouch, ca spoils a bit. I thought I had a big sound in a rhythmic and are well defined and powerful solo. no!
pedal walking backwards I have a very nice overdrive rhythm (Tube Screamer style) and a big sound (Big Muff style) in Boost.
I'm pretty happy with the result on my Fender Stratocaster, however on my Gibson Les Paul that is rough on my Gibson ES-335 ca crunch well on my White Falcon Gretsh no question of engaging the unfortunate boost! and finally my Rickenbaker 360/12v64 is how to say? decadent?. Very mixed results following the guitars, so ...

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for a year, I tried / bought a lot of other pedals ... a little preview? will:
Maxon OD-9, Electro Harmonix Big Muff, Pro Co RAT are my "unassailables"
and then those who have gone to oblivion Boss, Ibanez, Marshall not to mention, although the Boss super stack left me good memories.
I like the Blue Ecstasy, I find it pretty convenient [especially can jump clear sound (bypass) to Boost], tru bypass and no buzz make a queen pedalboard. I'm pretty disappointed with the sound rendering, okay I have a Mesa Boogie Road King with saturation and the boost will not equaled pedal.
So I bought this pedal to compensate for the absence of my amp, so it does not matter.
However the TubeScreamer side + Big Muff 300 € in fact a good quality / price ratio (the breath of the Big Muff less).
Another negative wha-wha (mine is a Custom Audio) and Boost, it works not strong, ca hand spin in the treble. Be put behind wha saturates say to me, but I is Wha Tuner + + + + Delay Sature Vibe worse and that is all!

If c 'it again, I do not will buy it, but paradoxically I keep it for convenience, reliable and solid. (We are complicated guitarists, eh!)
In conclusion it's a great pedal, but we must see it in the meeting of OD and a FUZZ sound reproduction rather than the tube amps of the brand.

UTILIZATION

Fender Deluxe 65 Les paul Tradition, American Strat and Tele

SOUND QUALITY

Pedal lets go of the light to drive the most punchy drive and all without flinching or become draft provided that they remain reasonable with Boost because it feels fast fuzzy side besides I never use, otherwise pushing the limit to gain back what is surprising is that it still spits out a good sound remains audible and super crunch unlike other or beyond 13h was more a Big Muff, if the pedal is super dynamic condition of having a very high volume in the amp and out of the pedal, there is enjoyable limit
By against the Plexi mode, bah there is more in the soft Plexi not expect to Plexi villain who turns to the JCM, limit I ask questions if this is not just a sales pitch ... Just write plexi on a pedal for it to sell right away more as the mode is on the head ... if the user does not have a vintage record, also across the sound seems very modern, this is right so fans of pure vintage sound ...
Overall it's still okay for a drive by fans against the plane type Hard Rock I remain puzzled by that is at the limit of its big rock for Guns'n'Roses plan it lacks it's like potato in Welcome To The Jungle with Jean Claude Van Damme lol for Aerosmith planes so the fact that Hard Rock / blues but no more, for more hard Bogner Records released the Rouge for it, but I find it rough and fuzzy .. . really no what to

OVERALL OPINION

What can I say ... I think it is a pedal fashionable and like any patterns that eventually passed, eg t-shirt Waikiki, merguez advantage of short Muscled ...
If the pedal is expensive even then too expensive to streamline things a little, we say that it is handmade it is signed Bogner etc ... except that it is in motion larfeuille € 295 less it is " holiday I forget everything "
I promised myself not to buy pedal beyond 200 € because it is less savings to take another amp and drive like an amp remains inimitable as well go to the source that ... take the muddy ground like shit ... it reminds me a saying ... if you read me baby ... lol
Pedal that I did not keep, for now I keep all my pedals Benrod

Bogner Ecstasy Blue
Beautiful object, not heavy enough to make junk, flawless finish, high-class components for analog pure cold pressed juice. Mono input / output, an entry for a remote control via MIDI, 2 footswitches for true bypass effect on / off & boost on / off. A row of knobs usual mini knobs to adjust the pre gain and assignable volume boost. A series of mini switch to sculpt his grain, gain, EQ and even the voltage ... in short, everything is permitted.

UTILIZATION

Gain, three band EQ, volume: childish. Want more? Gain and volume for Boost if necessary to get out of the mix. The mini switches:
Variac adjusts the voltage, you can put the pedal on and so release a bit more dynamic.
Plexi / Blue: it selects the mode as clean boost or more saturated.
B1/N/B2 3 presets EQ: mediums dug, Neutral, more presence
100/101/20th: grain structure corresponding to different preamps brand.

Mini generic manual is supplied with the pedal, but there is a plethora of demos - video clearly clarify the possibility and purpose of each command.

The adjustment possibilities are almost endless and really distinct from one another.

SOUND QUALITY

First impression: the reserve db is quite impressive given the short, see the lack of wind generated!
Secondo is truly dynamic ... but then something hearty! We immediately want to play the fingers is to bosser his volume knob on the guitar. The definition is really great over the entire range of frequencies. Plugged into a Blues Deluxe, this type of pedal is a real upgrade for an amp of this range then a third channel to be left permanently connected as it is addictive.
Plexi, plugged into an amp on the edge of crunch, a bit of reverb and it's immediate orbit.
Blue is a more granular fashion hair but remains in the large registry overdrive.
The boost to its name. Most of the time, boosting a signal already saturated, it Degomme part of mediums to gain profit. Not on Ecstasy instead.
My favorite: Variac on fashion Plexi, EQ B2, 20th volume structure at 12, 12 treble & bass, small bump in the mids, gain 2/3, a pair of P90 and a mohair sweater to stifle the thrill and the hairs that stand ...

Plugged into one of the great years old Blackface Fender reverb wish, it must be falling.

OVERALL OPINION

Steeped recently on my pedalboard, I think she is not ready to leave. I had the same feeling when after a series of pedals wha I ended up giving me an RMC Picture Wha, we finally said before that we had not actually used wha worthy of the name. Well there is the same. We have the right to think that at this price, we refuse to believe anything negative about the acquisition ... The thing is that so-called "boutique" enough to prohibitive tariffs effects, I being locked some over time, I have rarely been disappointed to be honest, but I often ended up getting bored for the final resale (and leave the tunes on the way!). Bogner on the problem upside down to that I say the day I give myself an old Vibroverb 64, I have at least enough to send a crunch at the height!

€ 300 for a pedal it is expensive for a Bogner .... it is another thing.
