The 427 is the modern muscle car of distortion pedals, with a big, meaty tone that's ready to kick ass. Another Paul Gagon creation, 427 builds on his experience crafting pedals for the gods of rock, but this one's got a distinctly American voice.
427 fires up with a potent variation of Gagon's proven LED-based distortion circuit as used in the BBE Blacksmith, with the power flowing to a sweepable EQ (CSEQ) section inspired by an early '70s Big Muff Pi and optimized for maximum flexibility.
On a mission to raise hell on rock-and-roll streets from New York to L.A., 427 delivers more raw power than yesteryear's muscle with better handling. With a beefy mil-spec circuit board sporting big, fat signal traces, 1% metal-film resistors and high-voltage poly caps, 427 is engineered to be deliver rock-solid performance and never leave you stranded. And when you aren't in the mood to lay down serious rubber, 427's true hardwire bypass lets your tone slip by without so much as angry glance from the tone police.
The music of Gus G and his band Firewind can be described as melodic, soaring and punishing - in short, metal masterpieces. But just as Gus is shaping the bleeding edge of metal, he is deeply passionate about its roots, as evidenced by his scoring the coveted gig as guitarist for Ozzy Osbourne.
Gus' gear reflects his passion, inspired by the classics and updated for a new level of sophistication and musical expression. BBE stompboxes share his ethos, born out of respect and appreciation for the classics while pushing forward, evolving the breed. Gus' new G Screamer signature overdrive is a thundering example. For years, the BBE Green Screamer was Gus' overdrive pedal of choice. But working closely with BBE's legendary mastermind Paul Gagon, Gus has now dialed in his tone still more, for solos that power his vision for the modern metal realm:
"BBE's Green Screamer is the one pedal I always had to have with me. When I'm soloing, the Green Screamer gives me that extra kick I need, a great combination of meaty gain and harmonics that drive my amp's tubes harder for a really thick, punishing tone. But it's not just an old school wall of distortion. It's complex and sophisticated, never ragged.
"The Green Screamer was working great for me, but I had ideas about how to make it even better for my tone. Paul Gagon and I collaborated and we modified the input driver to the distortion circuit so that more lower-mid harmonics are focused where I want them. Now my new G Screamer pedal lets me drive even more harmonics, and they're focused right where I need them to be for a cleaner, tighter distortion. The G Screamer delivers explosive power with precision. It's my new weapon."
