Friedman BE-OD

Friedman makes some really nice stuff and BE-OD was probably the hottest pedal in 2016. Being a big fan of the hot-rodded Marshall sound, I had to jump on that train one way of the other. I considered buying the pedal, but the good people at FreeStompboxes.org forum managed to reverse engineer it and one of them even produced a pro-quality PCBs, so I went the DIY route once again and decided to build the pedal myself. The PCB came from PedalPCB.com and is really nicely done.
