    Pulled the trigger on one and the wait is brutal. Who all has one and what are your feelings on it?

    Very popular amp around these parts. Many of the members gig them. If that is the tone you are looking for I don't think you will be disappointed.

    DUDE! I am seriously GAS'ing for one of these! I just don't really have the dough for one, so will be looking at used options. I first thought that I have absolutely no need for a 100 watt amp, which I still don't, but the master volume on the thing and amazing the taper is better that I've ever heard.

    In the meantime, I really love the BE-OD pedal into the clean channel of my DSL40c

    I REALLY want one.. but I’d have to sell my Marshall head, Mark IV Head, and one of my cabs to get most of the cash for a used one ... needless to say I needs more moola

    I love my little DSL40 too, great amp. I was watching YouTube videos and been eyeing one for a while, can’t wait to get it and let her rip

    Definitely. Still debating if I should get the matching Friedman 4x12 or stick with my old Marshall cab. Either way will post

    I had one and thought it was too transparent.it sounds best with higher output pickups imo.
    I prefer a stock marshall .again just my opinion,not knocking friedman.
    I do have a be-od pedal that I love.

    5A7BCDD7-496F-49EB-A1CD-E05F154EC1DE.jpeg She finally arrived and I have to say I haven’t been this excited in a while. I’ll post my thoughts once I play it through the matching 4x12 when it arrives shortly.

    image.jpg Well I decided I wanted the vintage cab instead so sold the black one and got this one from Sweetwater. Gotta say this amp continues to BLOW me away, after going through a dozen Marshall heads the last year the BE nails that sound in my head. It has such a warm round yet aggressive sound it’s hard to put into words.

    The BE100 is the best amp I have ever played.

    If I wasn’t so attached to my LPs.. I’d have to sell one and my small friedman to be able to afford a used BE100. not to say it’s not worth it but.. I’m fairly attached to them at the moment ... AND I really want a BE100 lol
