Bogner distills the Ecstasy into Red and Blue Mini pedals

null

Bogner’s Ecstasy Red and Blue pedals seriously impressed us upon their launch back in 2012 - so much so, the Red landed a spot on our guide to the best distortion pedals - and now the company has announced downsized Mini versions.

Both pedals feature a staggering number of features - here’s the scoop from Bogner:

  • True bypass
  • Boost function with independently lit volume and gain controls
  • Master Controls: Gain, Treble, Middle, Bass and Volume
  • Variac On/Off switch: adds a "dropped voltage" dynamic compression to the feel and sound
  • Mode Switch: Plexi and Blue modes offer vintage lower-gain or modified higher-gain levels
  • Pre-EQ Switch: B1, N and B2 settings control "openness" and presence of higher range harmonics
  • Structure Switch: 100, 101 and 20th Anniversary settings offer EQ shifts and gain structures from various eras and models of Ecstasy amplifiers
  • 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

As per the originals, the Red handles the higher-gain sounds from the Ecstasy, while the Blue shoots for crunchier territory.

Sure, they’re not mini in the Mooer sense, but these guys are considerably smaller than the chunky twin-footswitch originals, and that’s good news for pedalboard real estate.

The Ecstasy Red and Blue are available from 19 November for $199 each. Pay a visit to Bogner Amplification for more info.
