Bogner Ecstasy Red Mini Overdrive
Manufacturer's ID: ECSTASY RED MINI
What we say:
Bogner’s success with their Ecstasy Blue and Red pedals has brought about two new versions, this time in Mini housing. This one is the ‘Red’ model, based of course on the aggressive and higher gain Red channel of the Bogner Ecstasy head.
As we noted with the full size Red pedal, Bogner have smashed it out of the park, tone-wise: the colour, character and response of that most wondrous of amp channels is here completely. It’s simply one of the all-time great high gain sounds and if you’ve never had the chance to experience it, this pedal will put you there (providing you use an amplifier of a certain humble quality, like a valve combo with a 12” speaker) for comparatively little cost.
So what gets lost in the downsizing? Sonically, not a thing: this is an exceptional distortion pedal and has some very powerful EQ controls and extra switches (boost, ‘variac’, Pre-EQ) to carefully sculpt your ultimate gain. No, what does get lost is the footswitchable boost and the ability to work with batteries. We feel that these are both more than acceptable losses: after all, the larger Red channel pedal exists for those who need these features anyway!
Impressed is not the word. Unless all-out terror is your game (and why not?), you’ll be hard pressed to find a distortion pedal with a sound as rich, expressive and satisfying as this.
