Friedman Amplification Unveils the BE-OD

A new stompbox based on the legendary Friedman BE-100 amp.

Los Angeles, CA (August 26, 2016) -- Bringing a lethally cool new tool to the company’s growing product line, Friedman Amplification introduces the BE-OD overdrive pedal.

Designed by tone-guru-to-the-stars David Friedman, the BE-OD overdrive pedal faithfully captures the sonic impact of Friedman’s legendary BE-100 amplifier–known in some circles as the Brown Eye, and favored by serious musicians the world over.

The BE-OD overdrive delivers authentic tube amplifier sound from a compact pedal with the controls needed to shape your tone, including volume, gain, tight, bass, treble and presence. These responsive knobs will take you from light, slightly broken-up overdrives to straight-up gain nirvana. Built in the USA and designed to withstand decades of abuse, the BE-OD provides a super-potent addition to the sonic arsenal of any gigging or recording guitarist.

BE-OD features include:

  • Authentic British overdrive tones
  • Volume, Gain, Tight, Bass, Treble and Presence controls
  • True-bypass switching
  • Can be powered between 9-18VDC (no battery)
  • Built in USA using premium components

The Friedman BE-OD carries a street price of $199.99.
