Capture the "Bogner sound" in a pedal

Reinhold Bogner has designed some of the most iconic rock amps in recent history. The list of artists who play Bogner amps reads like a Who's Who of rock 'n' roll.

This pedal gives you serious rock 'n' roll crunch that can be pushed over the edge.

All Class A design gives amazing response and sound

The Bogner Ecstasy Blue Pedal features discrete Class A gain stages, no op-amps or diode clipping, just like the actual circuitry of the Ecstasy amp. This revolutionary approach delivers amp-like touch sensitivity, note separation, and clarity. The Structure switch lets you choose between various EQs and gain structures of various Ecstasy amps. It's like getting three amps in one pedal! The Bogner Ecstasy Blue Pedal is packed with features and amazing tones.

Feature-packed pedal gives you tonal flexibility

Far from being a one-trick pony, the Bogner Ecstasy Blue Pedal boasts a massive amount of tone-sculpting tools. Besides the typical 3-band EQ, you have a Variac switch that brings the "dropped voltage" dynamic compression of an underpowered amp, a mode switch that lets you choose classic Plexi tones or Ecstasy Blue tones, a presence and harmonics shaping Pre-EQ switch, and a footswitchable boost. The boost has independent volume and gain controls so you can dial in your perfect boosted lead sound. With so many functions, you'll be able to find you signature sound in no time with the Bogner Ecstasy Blue pedal.

Well worth the price

The words "surgical precision" come up in Sweetwater's review of this pedal, and they're 100% correct. You get so many options with four switches, a boost channel, and a highly responsive three-band EQ. There are literally seven knobs on this pedal (count em!). The circuit is great, and the hardware components (housing, footswitches, jacks) are high quality, having withstood a few years worth of use. I've never had to tighten or replace anything. It's super responsive, not only to the guitar's volume knob but even to picking intensity. If you have the time and money, the Bogner Blue will give you what you want. It's been my favorite medium-gain drive for years on end. I feel like Bogner went beyond conventional build expectations for guitar pedals in making this product. It's objectively a great product while maintaining artistic nuance. It's just beautiful. (Note: when running at 12v power, there was a really obnoxious hum in my signal. At 9v the pedal is silent, even totally boosted and at the highest gain. So run it at 9!)

Worth it and then some

I already have the red and was curious about the blue,...I'm partial to the blue because it's a little less harsh and sounds more harmonic and smooth in a really class a pushed old school way....very impressive and versatile

Love this pedal. I have the Ecstasy Red as well but I prefer the Blue overall (both great pedals though). The red is nastier and the blue is creamier. I like them both so much I ordered the uberschall as well. I run an EP Booster into the blue pedal and the combination is just excellent. I'm an overdrive pedal junkie but this may be my favorite of them all.

Simply Incredible

I watched some pretty good demos of this pedal that made the pedal sound other worldly and this thing did not disappoint. Very organic and rich sounding. Very full compared to other OD pedals I have. Goes from a very nice clean/breakup sound to pretty heavy OD. Not quite distortion territory, but that is what the Red pedal is for.

Great pedal!

This is the pedal you need! I bought the red ecstasy first, love it but it really is too much gain for most of what my band plays. So I bought the blue one as well....and now the blue is the one I use most and stays in my pedal board for live use. (Ill keep the red for studio use). The blue has a very nice CRUNCH and focused punch. EQ and modes are subtle but thats a good thing as its very hard to find a bad tone in the pedal. The best distortion pedal Ive ever owned. If you are a metal head go for the red. Everyone else get the has plenty of gain, trust me. Thanks to Sweetwater salesperson Mark Magdich for the recommendation!
