WiR's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Worth it!"

Caline CP-18 Orange Burst
A 9v overdrive, all analog.

True Bypass.


Knob: Volume, Gain, Treble (acute) and bass.

Super simple, normal size.

Like all pedals of this type, the switch is probably a bit fragile.


Level is great!

The gain can go very far (can be used independent overdrive solo rock), and the sound palette is super wide through two bass and treble knobs.

I tend to decrease acute and go a little low. I get a very warm sound with good headroom (as shown in this video:

It has more gain than the Xotic BB Preamp (it would be his clone), however, for the Xotic BB Preamp tested (which did not satisfy me considering the price), this has not Caline grain BB Preamp. It has its tonal color, she approaches the concept of the BB Preamp, but did not his grain.

The grain of the Xotic is really beautiful, and she has not the same. Its grain is "low cost". But hey, given the price difference, I bought the Caline so good ;-) .


This is a very good product, unbeatable quality / price ratio.

It should go easy on the switch and I think again, I'm only speculating, maybe they are sturdy.

Nevertheless it's a great pedal. If I need a good versatile overdrive, transparent enough (because it is) and enough guts, I shall without hesitation.

A good overdrive to have on hand for all types of use (in this jam session is niquel!)

Caline CP-18 Orange Burst
light overdrive, clean boost or overdrive muscular ....


Config very simple, anyway it sounds no matter what.


It should do exactly what it is supposed to do ... an overdrive or boost.
I play with a musicman petrucci and 77 custom locket love on a preamp AMT SS20, it works with everything.
To get a great crunch or to boost a distortion is perfect.


It's great. I had a BB preamp and I was sold, I found exactly the same sound with this one. SO THIS IS PERFECT! I note on price and its use. As much as I find the BB preamp too expensive, so at this price it is essential in a guitar rig.

als2178's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" a perfect BB preamp"

Caline CP-18 Orange Burst
4 knob overdrive gain, volume, bass, treble


no need for manual


see if like the BB preamp, go for it without thinking.

For those who do not know, it's like a tube screamer but transparent.

It can be used as a drive to boost amp overdrive or as a clear channel. In which case everyone will think you use the channel saturating your amp.
Personally I used the one with great field and a strat. I do not support the Tubescreamer (j have already had two), which to my taste its colors and lack of potato whatever configuration knob.

I used to play the pink Floyd of Santana Hendrix. But I also use the fine to play jazz or funk.


I used the last 6 or 7 months. I really wanted the BB preamp, and I am absolutely not déçu.C is a true copy of the BB so it is transparant, true bypass. And it is really cheap compared to the "big brand".
See if like BB preamp go ahead

Caline CP-18 Orange Burst

What are the effects or types of effects available?
What technology is used? (Analog, digital, lamp ...)
Are they editable? Via an editor Mac / PC?
What is the connection? (Audio / MIDI)
Is it a rack or rack-mount model?

Pedal true bypass, transistor and opamp taken 9v
very well made, it's serious and tough steel knobs like the Boss.


2. USE

The general configuration is it simple?
Editing sounds and effects is it easy?
The manual is clear and sufficient? ...

very simple (that's why I use more racks and other multi-effects), 4 knobs treble, bass, volume and drive, all very interractifs, mama if it sounds too without looking in the settings, no mediums, but it does not fail.
This is supposed to be a clone of the famous BB preamp.



The effects are they effective, responsive and realistic enough?
Which instruments do you use?
Which ones you prefer, you hate?

While there, considering the price, it far exceeds my expectations, all overderives I (had), this is probably the cheapest and the best because of its transparency and its grain. Used to boost its saturated as direct clear sound, it sounds! am, however, a difficult, having sold a lot of overdrive.



How long have you been using?
What is so special that you like most and least?
Did you try many other models before buying it?
How do you rate the quality / price?
With experience, you do again this choice? ...

Excellent pedal! bought a few months ago, I said yeah, blah, at this price BB preamp clone, we'll see ....

Looking for a BB preamp, influenced by Timmons among others, but do not want to pierce my wallet, a great deal, 100EUR cheaper but equally well made. Note that I have ever had but the BB hands, but I had among other things (I still have some) ....:

Nobels ODRS: pretty transparent, but knobs and jacks fragile (old model Korean)
Aria OD1: my first pedal, all plastic, but nice
Homebrew electronics powerscreamer: great pedal, but exchanged, preferring the Nobels
Bk Butler Blue tube: not bad, but it was a lot of lights in my pedals
Bk Butler Real Tube: ditto Blue tube and need dough
Ibanez TS: reference seems

This Caline (sold under several brand names) is an excellent deal, according to my research on the net (images and comments on the internal circuit), it is of course not quite a BB preamp, but largely inspired it is versatile (some ex overdrive channel sounded good on saturation, but means clear or vice versa, but it goes well on both), I'm often looking for some alternative brands and certainly not (too) expensive What bargain and there, hat, and damn good at the cost of self-assembly in bulk. I do not know if it is a BB, but I care. Not afraid of being bitten me, well built, nothing to envy to pedal 100 or 200EUR + expensive (I had), then you're sure not afford the brand or the guy who is sponsored.

Choice I would do without fail.

To summarize: the overdrive with fuzz and delay being almost my only effects used, I tested a lot (purchases, exchanges and resales), see that I have tested a lot, was booked convinced of the superiority of lamps in this type of product, as a fan of old pedals itouitou ...
I am sometimes disgusted by some brands that offer products for high sounding worse.
