This pedal gives you serious punch from vintage overdrive to aggressive high-gain tones.

All Class A design gives amazing response and sound

The Bogner Ecstasy Red Pedal features discrete Class A gain stages, no op-amps or diode clipping, just like the actual circuitry of the Ecstasy amp.

Feature-packed pedal gives you tonal flexibility

Far from being a one-trick pony, the Bogner Ecstasy Red 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 between three EQ curves, 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 Red Pedal.

Love the Bogner Red!

I'm currently using the Bogner Red through a Fender '68 Custom Deluxe Reverb with an American Standard Tele, a pretty clean rig as far as tone goes. The pedal is super versatile and can give all kinds of variation of distortion. I can keep it bluesy or country or beef it up to a really nice, rich, heavier sound that's good for any kind of hard rock that I need and there's still headroom beyond that if you want to get REALLY heavy. The boost functionality is awesome. Being able to dial in my own boost volume and gain beyond is a very nice feature. It's nice to have a nice rich lead even if the rhythm I'm playing is a little cleaner. I really like the big chicken head knobs as well. It makes it so much easier to tweak in a live setting. I like it so much, I'm thinking about getting the Blue as well.

This one did the same as the blue one

This is an amazing pedal for those Marshall sounds. The elusive brown sound hide in here. It can get OD and crunch but also the clean semi-clean sounds. Potentiometers are very active and it takes some time to dial a sound that you like or need. It the most robust pedal I have ever played and tones for everyone. Now, if I could just settled and a tone and stop reaching down.

Everything You Need In a Box

This has to be one of the best pedals out there!. Tried it accidentally at a guitar shop and fell in love with it directly. It could go from an ac dc tone to a beffy sound with ease. Love this pedal! It is like the Ecstasy 101 Head Cab but in a box! A bit pricy, but worth every penny! Bogner FTW!

Finally, a distortion pedal that sounds exactly like it's supposed to.

I've been searching (and searching) for a great distortion pedal for my %13 rsa 23, something for some AC/DC to Van Halen crunch, but nothing was getting me close. This pedal nails it, the bloom and urgency of the brown sound to the raw crunch of Angus, and it has real tone controls and many (actually useful) options. I never write reviews and usually wait a couple of weeks to let the product sink in, however, I've been playing this for three hours and only stopped to write this review. If your thinking you might want this pedal, stop thinking and buy it, you will not regret it.

Bogner Ecstasy Red Pedal

I mostly just record in my home now, so I'm always looking for great sound at bedroom levels. The Bogner Ecstasy amp is my dream amp sound, but let's face it, it's meant for a big stage, not in your bedroom. This is the first pedal I've purchased that actually sounds like the U-tube clips! It's killer! I'm driving it through one of my older tube heads into my 4-12 cabs, and it's hard to even put my guitar down, I love it! It prefers the tubes cranked on your clean channel with the master up, but you can keep it quieter with your channel volume. Once you dial the amp in, this pedal sounds incredible at any volume with the pedals volume control. Man, amp simulation technology is getting unbelievable!. The musical dynamics of this pedal are amazing. Man, with a couple of beers I sound just like Van Halen! HA! Great job Bogner!
Music background: Been playing for for 40 years.

The first time I recorded with an Ecstasy, I fell in love with the Red Channel. Thick and crunchy, but detailed with great note definition. I have searched all over for a pedal that can do that kind of tone, but now that search is over. The Bogner Ecstasy Red Overdrive Pedal gets so close to the real tone that it's unreal!
