    OVERALL OPINION

    Ok

    therefore, the Bluesbreaker early 90s .....

    simply put, it is the only overdrive pedal that I love and who, to my ears, does not sound "vulgar" or cheap.
    Apart from an old TS808, I never heard anything so class, soft, well-balanced.
    However, I tested the pedals, even mounted, store bought stuff at prices bordering Cameroon's GDP, the MJM, the wampler, etc etc ... well I keep coming back to my old Bluesbreaker MK1

    of course if you want the sound of steve vai when he imitates the cry of consistent takeoff, obviously it does not suit you ... therefore it should be clearly stated, it is a pedal "for large."

    good news for those who want to have the sound but can not find BB1 OCCAZ a nice price, MOOER blues crab is really close to the original. this is the only one I tested that this je ne sais quoi that makes my BB1 great (a bit more on the bright MOOER but not 20 years of off-road use in the legs .. .)

    The overdrive or boost but the hot!

    This is an overdrive pedal that simulates the sound of the famous Bluesbreaker amp from Marshall. The case is in steel and large size, strong as a panzer .... Circuits are analog, manufacturing is pure British real Marshall factory, not relocated in Asian countries ... Three knobs: Gain, Tone, Volume. A true-bypass switch, a 9V battery or external input, output. Manufacturing quality is obvious, flagrant robustness, reliability flawless.

    UTILIZATION

    With three knobs, usage is very simple. The manual gives some examples of relevant settings, but the interest is good to find his own sound that vibrates, then with three buttons, it is quickly found. The battery is very accessible, a…

A true-bypass switch, a 9V battery or external input, output. Manufacturing quality is obvious, flagrant robustness, reliability flawless.

    UTILIZATION

    With three knobs, usage is very simple. The manual gives some examples of relevant settings, but the interest is good to find his own sound that vibrates, then with three buttons, it is quickly found. The battery is very accessible, and life is good.

    SOUND QUALITY

    This is a pedal that brings a lot of warmth to the sound. It can be used as a boost if you set the gain below 3/4. It will be a relatively neutral boost with the gain set low and high volume. In the amount of gain and setting the tone at noon maximum, you get to boost hot and creamy ways lamps, more intéréssant. There is much that the gain beyond the 3/4 volume and enough strong that it becomes a true overdrive with this side always muy caliente! It is true that the lack of progressivity knob, but just to know. She does not have a very high level of saturation, but it remains in its definition of overdrive, it's typically with Marshall, and very warm. Combined with my Marshall amp transistor 5210, it gives the hot side, as many tube amps can envy. When combined with a second overdrive in the loop, then it becomes even more wicked sound AC / DC pure juice.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I have over twenty years, she has not changed a bit. I'm careful with my gear, but it would survive a nuclear holocaust anyway! It will never be for sale, it is too good and helpful to me. Anyway my amp is married, inseparable. I bought a Chinese copy of TS9 overdrive for a more aggressive, which associated with softness and warmth of it made a tandem Dante. I love the warm it exudes quality and workmanship. I paid more than 500 francs at the time, largely justified price. Now its rating should be high enough and this is normal. I made a good choice at the time, no regrets.

    Good soft pedal

    Marshall BluesbreakerPublished on 05/26/12 at 15:22
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    Nothing to add

    UTILIZATION

    Very simple, given the number of knobs.

    SOUND QUALITY

    Good overdrive, very light. Boost your amp. I have the BB2, her little sister, I much prefer. The more saturated BB2, goes further.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I have only a few months, I use the BB2 for quite some years and I love him more.

    cool blues pedal

    Marshall BluesbreakerPublished on 11/29/11 at 21:43
    Given that this company's most well-known product is a portable guitar amplifier, I was surprised to find that they also make pedals. This is one of the distortions they make, it could actually be the only one. It is a tube-based pedal that emulates the sound of the 7-100, but gives you the volume that is possible with a large combo or stack. This cannot be edited with a computer, not controlled by midi, and as a pedal, it is not rackable. There is simply a 1/4" input and output, as well as an adapter for a power supply that can come with it.

There is simply a 1/4" input and output, as well as an adapter for a power supply that can come with it.


    UTILIZATION

    The editing of effects is generally pretty simple. There is a knob for intensity (gain) and one for volume. There is a bypass switch and a switch called "Extra Snort". This humorously titled switch bypasses the intensity knob entirely, and opts for massive amount of gain. Getting a good sound is pretty easy if you are looking for what this pedal can deliver.


    SOUND QUALITY

    This pedal doesn't really do subtle all that well. This is in no way good for getting overdrive tones, this is distortion all the way. It's actually got some great vintage lead tones, and some not bad rock sounds either. I like this pedal with a Marshall, I actually tend to cool it a bit with the gain on the Marshall's dirty channel and kick this in tandem. It gets a really great lead rock sound that kills, and rocks power chords to the top row. . That's a noisy combo, but with a gate it's not too bad. The extra snarl switch is just too much for me usually, in any circumstance. This pedal is not great for people who don't want to lose their natural tone, as it colors the sound pretty drastically. However, this isn't always a bad thing, as the tone that comes out of it is pretty cool. I like this pedal because it sounds like the Pignose Portable 7-100 legendary, which I am fond of. I don't think it's the best distortion out there, though. I still like it, however.


    OVERALL OPINION

    I think this is pretty cool for fans of the 7-100s sound who'd rather have a pedal than use that amp's "pre-amp out" jack to get the sound they are looking for. This is a pretty cool pedal in general.

    This is a particularly effective instrument for the drive back from a tube amp slightly crunchy and do not change your sound drastically.
    For my part I use it to drive up the volume and the slide of my solos, played on a telecaster 92, with 2 sensor violence in acute in series (such as double) and really it sounds.
    Whatever the amp used I use it as a boost.
    I also use a tube screamer (TS 9) and I think that Marshall is lighter even when the drive is cranked it saturates strong enough (relatively speaking with a JCM 800 with a 4 * 12).
    In addition it is very strong because since the time I used it did not move even if I feel that the switch has shown signs of fatigue.
    The tone is quite effective for correcting the sound volume if necessary and can really pass over the other especially when the drummer is a little loose ...

    Nothing special: 3 buttons: gain, tone and volume. The expected nothing but a foot pedal.

    UTILIZATION

    Unless the wrong jack input / output is not simple, as stated above.

    SOUND QUALITY

    Be careful here, I mean the first version (that of the photo), not in any reissue. At first it's weird, because the gain does not appear to increase to more than half. In fact, it gets really interesting until about 3 / 4. But it's crazy what this pedal is stirring, a warm, fat-free either, drooling, harmonics that come out easily, you'd think frankly sometimes play on the lights.

I use it for info with a Fender Blues Junior, I also have a Fender Super 112 and a Budda phatman so light level, I am equipped. Well, I think this pedal has a real character to it, even if the transistor. But as its name suggests, it's really oriented blues, I do not see what you can do with the other.

    OVERALL OPINION

    It's been two three months I have and it's a pedal that I will take some time, for sure. Not like the mt2 of my youth, or the Guv'nor which I was quite disappointed. Especially since it looks very solid.

    The original blues breaker is Designed as for "marshall" the tube screamer. We thus find the same rglages: drive, tone and volume. The Casing is solid, much more reliable than the TS9 chri my building (quite a switch problem with one of them, and the other is taking that power supply suffer ...)

    UTILIZATION

    Trs easy to use, provided you do not consider this as a real overdrive pedals. As the TS in all.

    SOUND QUALITY

    The grain of the BB is really diffrent the ibanez TS, especially insofar as it is really less fat. His intrt, and it got my personal, will be in the boost "brilliant". In his clear, it can color your sound more subtly than the TS9 it will allow you to "fend…

    The grain of the BB is really diffrent the ibanez TS, especially insofar as it is really less fat. His intrt, and it got my personal, will be in the boost "brilliant". In his clear, it can color your sound more subtly than the TS9 it will allow you to "fendriser" your amp, by providing the slamming and shine. Attention to the fat, it will be less the case that the TS. For the boost in saturated idem. She put out the sound of single coils (in the spirit hendrix example). It will boost unless the TS for the humbucker, but it will bring much the same quality gloss and slamming.

    OVERALL OPINION

    IDAL for beautiful bluesy clean sounds (in the same amp transistors, rsultat INTERESTED trs), more vintage sounds or bright. I use it mostly for clean sounds Global Warming too "flat", or to boost and r-Galise play the solos in saturated neck pickup (for the attack and dfintion). In the case of saturated it will also be exploited in a bluesy style. I alternate with the TS9 I use only boost, but in this register should, it has all styles of lead.

    Dfinitvement for crunch sounds and clear is that BB carries my choice. As was a commercial flop, we find little, but not CHRE.
