The Bleak District Electric RecHead is a cassette tape-style modulator pedal, replicating the tape saturation, flutter and lo-fi organic character of this good-old physical media.
At its heart is a vibrato which is extremely dynamic; sensitive to how soft or hard you play, which can be fine-tuned using the Sensitivity control.
Blending in some of your Dry signal turns wobbly vibrato into lush yet lo-fi chorus.
The Tape control adjusts the blend of wet signal, or "tape saturation".
The Portastudio-style 3-way Dolby NR (Noise Reduction) toggle gives you ultimate flexibility in how grainy your sound is. It also affects how prominent the vibrato or chorus effects is perceived to be.
By adjusting the mix of Tape and Dry you can achieve some unique and very interactive sounds.
Top pedal, love it. 2 problems solved in a tiny footprint for my small blues board, when I was just looking for a treble booster for getting the Beano sound. The fuzz is really articulate and plays nice with a wah. The numbered dials can be a bit difficult to read but after you've set the fuzz it is really just 2 volume knobs, so numbers matter less than ears!
Cheers Jim. Great service and quick delivery
The new BC183 MKII is a fantastic maximalistic take on the Type III Silicon Fuzz Face - here it delivers unprecedented depths of character and texture via its 6 controls - this is for sure SGFX's very own Fuzz Factory!
I spent an obsessive amount of time checking out univibe pedals. I'm so glad that I purchased this one from Boost. It is simply fantastic! If you don't believe me, then check out some video demos. Thanks Jim! + JG
This is a fantastic drive pedal. There’s plenty of Plexi style pedals out there and I’ve owned a few, this one stood out for the switchable A/B-B/A switch. The boost side is nice and simple, much like an LPB-1. Not overly clean but a perfect partner to the drive side. The Plexi side is again nothing revolutionary but very good all the same and sounds great, on a par with far more expensive pedals.
The build quality is also top end, very neat and tidy. Squeezed into the single enclosure and with a lifetime warrantee I couldn’t ask for more. I don’t think this’ll be leaving my pedal board any time soon!
Lots of great sounds in this relatively-compact delay / reverb
I’m only just starting to scratch the surface of the KMA MACHINES Cirrus, but absolutely loving it so far. Very responsive to pick attack which means can really control the “ambience” with playing style. Really looking forward to exploring further.
Had a few vibes, absolutely loving this one, check the YT demos, lovely satisfying vibe with all the swirly goodness you could hope for. Beautifully made and reasonably priced. Highly recommended - and Jim at Boost is a top guy
I came across the Formula B Fuzz Rangers via online demos on Youtube, and they all sounded so good that I had to get one. Looking online I found the Boost Guitar Pedals website via the Formula B website as a listed UK stockist. Jim was excellent and the pedal arrived when he said it would and it was perfectly packaged. I would have no hesitation in buying any other product from Boost.
As for the Fuzz Rangers, it is a great pedal. I had to work at it a touch to get the sounds I liked from it, but it seems to react really well to different guitars and different amps with adjustments to volume and tone on the guitar and different amp settings. I found it works best into a slightly cranked amp, and volume roll-off on the guitar offers a great variety of sounds from clean to classic fuzz. Thoroughly enjoying the pedal. Well done Jim, great website and a great selection of interesting brands and pedals..... Which one next????
Having used a number of univibe clones over the years this one truly nails the sound for me, it comes with some clever additions in a pedal board friendly size and is excellent value for money. If you want the true sound of the original this pedal delivers.Special thanks to boost Guitar Pedals for putting this deal together so quickly..
I'm still working my way through all the sounds, but so far I'm loving them all.
Each time I think I've got a fav sound I flip the diode switch and there's another one. Great value for a four-in-one fuzz pedal!!
