OVERVIEW

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
  • Premium components include: Double-sided, gold-plated circuit boards, German WIMA capacitors, Japanese Nichicon capacitors and gold-plated relays, Carling switches and more

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

The Uberschall pedal has an incredible response to your playing and a big transparent sound... it's NOT an over-compressed haigh gain pedal... is very versatile, you could play from blues to metal with it... The boost switch is really helpfull to get highest gain sounds... the middle control is very sensitive...

High quality 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:

    Based on the description, I expected this pedal to unleash a monster wall of insane modern metal tones. It doesn't do anything close to that. What it does is provide a Marshall-y crunch that is not muddy, along with reasonably reactive EQ controls and a pretty decent volume boost. The pedal is designed to work with an amp set on clean, and it gets pretty fizzy if you use preamp gain with it. It does come to life a little more with a Tubescreamer type OD in front of it in the signal chain. I decided to keep the pedal because nothing else in my current set-up gives me that particular tone, but it's not what I really wanted. Not a great value at full price.

    Overall, if you want a pedal that takes a clean amp and gives it a Marshall-y crunch tone, this is a good one.

    If you want a real heavy, modern high gain distortion, you should get a different pedal.

      Comments about Bogner Uberschall Distortion/Boost Guitar Effects Pedal:

      I picked up a Bogner Uberschall on a SDOTD offer, and I'm glad I did. It's proving to be a pretty good distortion pedal. It's NOT capable of death metal type distortion, but it does scooped mids and modern distortion well with the help of the boost side.

      The boost side can be engaged by itself, so that it functions as a solo boost without the gain side being enabled. The reality is that this pedal is essentially two pedals in one: a distortion pedal and a boost pedal.

      The pedal runs on a regular 9V One Spot type power source, or it can run on a 9V battery. I haven't tried running it on battery power yet, so I can't testify as to how long a battery will last.

      It's a fairly large pedal, but not nearly as large as the Behringer Tube Distortion pedal (that thing is a beast!).

      I would recommend this pedal to a friend. It's fun to play around with.

        Comments about Bogner Uberschall Distortion/Boost Guitar Effects Pedal:

        Very dynamic as it responds to pick attack very well. Great note articulation even with the gain maxed out. Doesn't seem to add much noise to the signal either which is cool. Controls are very responsive. I think there is a surprising amount of versatility there by experimenting with different levels of gain and boost. Since it behaves more like an amp channel than a pedal, I prefer to run an overdrive in the front of it for soloing rather than engaging the boost function.

          if you like 5150 or Rectifier tones...check this out. it can replace over-drive or distortion chains of effects with less noise being added to the overall sound...even though 100% analog.

              Comments about Bogner Uberschall Distortion/Boost Guitar Effects Pedal:

              I'm a pedal junkie that's often tempted to buy pedals that promise variety. But I find that all too often they don't live up to their billing. For this reason I can fall out of love with a pedal - even an expensive pedal - within an hour or two.

              The Bogner Uberschall pedal is a one trick pony that does what it does so well that I just had to get the Velcro out and give it precious real estate on my go-to pedal board.

              If you like Marshall tones, i.e. high gain but with great clarity and definition, you won't be disappointed. If you're looking for 7-string grunt and grind, you probably will be.

              I'm very impressed with this pedal and I look forward to using it for years to come - finding every sweet spot it has to offer.

                    First off, there is not nearly as much gain as the product's description would have you think. Initially the sound was extremely thin both on my tube and solid state amps. Additionally, I tested it both on my strat with single coils my, HH PRS, AND an ibanez with EMG 81/89.
                    The instructions tell you that the bass pot may need to be turned all the way down on certain amps. That helped a bit but it still sounds pretty bad. Save your money and buy something else.

                    This is a very high gain, but extreme articulate note definition pedal. The boost function make a single channel amp turn into 3 ch with this pedal. This pedal can do any metal with mid scoop and hugh low end.
