Bogner Ecstasy Red and Uberschall pedal

Bogner introduced pedal line last year 2012.
I'd say thats a tremendous movement as a boutique amp manufacturer to introduce pedal line
which directly pulled out their famous legendary amplifier series channel's circuit -
"Ecstasy" and "Uberschall" to combine with solid state technology.

Reinhold Bogner uses premium components for this pedal line include:
Double sided gold plated circuit boards, German WIMA capacitors,
Japanese Nichicon capacitors and gold plated relays, Carling switches and more.

Ecstasy RED pedal is the heritage from Ecstasy mystical red channel -
Incendiary high gain crunch and lead tones. The tone options from this pedal has more than you ever needed.
1) Variac On/Off switch-  adds a “dropped voltage” dynamic compression to the feel and sound.
2) Pre-EQ Switch: B1, N and B2 settings control “openness” and presence of higher range harmonics.
4) Mode Switch: Tight, Mellow and Full, shapes the general EQ curve and gain levels.
3) Structure Switch: 100, 101 and 20th Anniversary settings offer EQ shifts and gain structures
    from various eras and models of Ecstasy amplifier. (abstracted from Bogner official website)

Ecstasy Red is my favourite Bogner pedal. It exactly captures real amp tone.
20th, B2 and Tight mode are my settings for aggressive metal tone.

Bogner Uberschall pedal delivers thunderous high gain tone from brutal Bogner Uberschall amplifier.
Unfortunatelly I didn't get impressed by this pedal as much as Ecstasy Red pedal.

I have nothing more to say for this Uberschall pedal.

A boutique pedal comes with boutique battery.
