    BBE OptoStomp very underrated compressor. Through it in an effects loop and get great transparent squash.

    I've got a Bench Press and a Green Screamer Jet. Love 'em! At my last gig I used the GS exclusively on a board that also has a Direct Drive and a ZenDrive. I'm still in learning curve mode with the Bench Press, but so far I'm happy with it. Getting it used for $49.95 in the box with power adapter makes me even happier. I got the GS for a special sale price. I'm pretty sure it was under $75.00, so a lot of bang for the buck.

    I had the Windowpane Fuzz, but we didn't bond. Rolling off the guitar's volume made it cut off too abruptly for me. I like a smoother roll off. YMMV.

    There's a couple of other BBE pedals I'd like to try. I've heard good things about the Wah and the Two Timer.

    There should be more people here! I have a Boosta Grande(from when it still had the bull on the front) and I absolutely adore that thing!

    BBE Boosta Grande, old blue box. Love this boost, esp for strat.

    Had a BBE Tremor (new style) but it had faulty switches, switched itself between speeds. :(

    Opticomp and Windowpane use here!

    Love the Opticomp; it smoothes out the sound ever so subtly, and makes the overall volume of the playing seem a little louder overall. Windowpane is cool, but it gets really finnnicky about where in the chain it's placed. I just power it with a battery and stick it in front of the entire pedalboard when I do use it.

    I have a Tremor and a Bench Press (is that called the Opto Comp now?) and love them both. The Tremor is especially fantastic for using live, thanks to its two presettable tremolo speeds and ability to switch between each.

    I'm a big fan of the Tremor. It's a great no-nonsense tremolo... no wait... It's TWO no-nonsense tremolos...

    I'm new to the BBE club. I actually picked a BBE 427 Distortion for $49.99:

    I like it quite a bit. I've heard people say it's like a "DS-1 with better tone control". That's probably a little unfair, but I understand the basic sentiment, and it's worth pointing out that this is a better pedal for the same price as a DS-1! It's LED clipping, and kind of reminds me of the Donner Morpher, which I also like. If you want a nice thick distortion with a treble roll-off for brighter amps, this is a nice budget contender.

    I've looked at several other BBE pedals to see what else I like from the line, but while many of them look like good values, there isn't anything else I particularly need. The OptiComp looked interesting. Windowpane Silicon Fuzz is a good value, but I'm not a huge fan of that style of fuzz pedal (I like the thicker Big Muff variety).

    427 is solid, though!
