Bogner

Brutal Bogner gain of the highest order, now in a compact pedal.

In 2001 Bogner launched the Uberschall amplifier. More than a decade later, Bogner still hand builds each one in Los Angeles, California. Dubbed "Armageddon in a Box," the ferocious Uberschall pedal derives its thunderous hi-gain tones from the notoriously brutal Bogner Uberschall amplifier. While the Uberschall pedal offers a significant range of classic lower and medium gains, its true nature comes forth when delivering savage, face-melting, high-gain aggression.

Reinhold designed the Uberschall pedal with five discrete Class A gain stages and with diode clipping, mirroring circuitry of the Uberschall amplifier’s high-gain channel. This revolutionary approach provides clarity, touch sensitivity and note separation never before achieved in distortion pedals.

The Uberschall pedal is powered by a standard 9V battery or 9V power supply. Reinhold’s advanced circuitry internally elevates the voltage a substantially higher level. This higher voltage provides a greater dynamic range which closely resembles the feel of the Uberschall amplifier’s legendary tube design.

Features

  • True bypass
  • Boost function with independently lit volume and gain controls
  • Master Controls: Gain, Treble, Middle, Bass and Volume
  • Jacks: input, output and remote
  • Remote jack allows control of the on/off and boost functions via a remote switching unit
  • Low Battery Indicator: LEDs blink when battery voltage drops below critical threshold

Add the Uberschall's legendary high-gain sound to your rig. Order now.

          Comments about Bogner Uberschall Distortion/Boost Guitar Effects Pedal:

          been in working cover bad for years and thought this would be a great "extra" high gain channel for my bogner xtc, was very disappointed...very, although it does function as if its another channel, part of the amp, not just a pedal, it sounded TERRIBLE on the xtc. It was awful, to make it worse I had bragged about this thing and my guitar buddies were there at the first plug in....they were glad I was the one who shelled out all that money first. tried it on my solid state practice amp, not much better. one show we played out in the cold , the temperature seemed to mess the switches up because the thing wouldn't work right all night till I got it home in the warmer temps, it did this EVERY time I had it out in the cold...all the BOSS, Fulltone, Morely, ect pedals never failed but this one every time. I sincerely hope I had a bad one for the price and because I LOVE my Bogner XTC and I couldn't imagine them making something of such poor quality

            Comments about Bogner Uberschall Distortion/Boost Guitar Effects Pedal:

            WOW! This pedal has completely transformed my amp into a high gain monster with a whole lot of attitude. The Bogner Uberschall absolutely delivers. While it not only looks cool and slick on your pedal board, it brings with it a wide range of tones and is responsive to the way you play with high quality definition. I played through a number of different distortion boxes and this one is by far my favorite. I play a Les Paul Custom through a Marshall 100 watt head with a Mesa 4X12 stiletto cab and this thing just brings out all the things in your amp that was missing before. The clarity and note separation is superb. While other boxes sound fizzy and cheap, this one accentuates the tonal characteristics of your guitar while bringing just the right amount high gain mayhem at the same time. If you are looking for a high quality versatile high gain pedal, this is the one. At least for me in my opinion. BOGNER UBERSCHALL ROCKS HARD!

            Comments about Bogner Uberschall Distortion/Boost Guitar Effects Pedal:

            I believe I have finally arrived at the tone/gain/texture that has alluded all these years with this pedal. I played through a Bogner Ubershall a few years ago and wanted one instantly. This is that same over the top gain and texture and tone for a fraction of the cost!! Thank you, Reinhold Bogner for putting that legendary sound into a compact, affordable stomp box!

              Comments about Bogner Uberschall Distortion/Boost Guitar Effects Pedal:

              This is literally like a Bogner Uberschall amplifier in a box. This isn't just a distortion pedal, it completely redefines your tone. I have owned all sorts of metal distortion pedals, including the PisdiYAUw0t, the line6 ubermetal, boss metalzone, boss metalcore, mxrFullbore, etc...None of them even come close to holding a candle to this pedal. All other pedals simply add massive amounts of gain, completely washing away the tone and making it virtually impossible to cut through the mix with other musicians playing. This is the only modern distortion pedal in which I can hear my tone cut through the mix and never lose sight of every note in a chord. Granted, this pedal does not have massive amounts of sludgy gain, per se, but honestly if you think that you need more gain than this then nobody is going to want to listen to your guitar anyway. This pedal is perfectly sufficient to sound like Meshuggah, Tool, or even Pantera and it is versatile enough to be super responsive to your voulme knob, granting you the ability to access a slightly overdriven sound instead of full on distortion. This is the best and most worthy distortion pedal I've ever played with, unmatched versatility and tonal characteristics makes this pedal way more than just a stompbox, it's like having an extra amp on your pedal board. However, to achieve the best results, I highly recommend stacking this pedal with another overdrive pedal in front of it. I have found no other pedal better than the X0tic RCBooster, it is the best for placing right before distortion pedals as it completely enhances your tone as well as provides a perfect subtle boost, not too much but just right. Oh yeah, and when you squeal the strings with the Uberschall pedal, your ears will bleed.

                Comments about Bogner Uberschall Distortion/Boost Guitar Effects Pedal:

                I was really impressed with the first reviews and sound samples I've seen over so I decided to give this one a try, which came to be a good idea.

                It does have all the qualities I was looking for (Fluid and organic low-to-high gain distortion) with solid construction and friendly interface. I was interest in using it as main distortion pedal when not using a full amp setting (5150, ENGL, Hughes & Kettner are my choices in that) and it delivered a very good result. I still think it could go a little bit farther in terms of gain and that's why I've not given a 5 stars. I mean, there's lot of drive and gain to play from blues, to rock, hard, heavy and etc, but there's lack of punch and headroom on that process when you start putting much gain. Some harmonics and sustain didn't work as I was expecting. For instande, with some twist and turns on a Fulltone OCD and a good axe you can deliver a more dense, rich and consistent sound (at least for my liking) with same versability, solid construction etc.

                Overall a great pedal with amazing organic and decent distortion sounds from low-to-high gain.
