Does anyone have a Bogner Blue pedal that they have compared to the Z-Drive? I've got the Z-Drive and I love it, but before I got them I was very seriously researching the Bogner Blue pedal. I've never played a Blue and I'm hoping someone can shed some light on whether they would work well together or if (and how) they're alike.

I haven't gotten my Z Drive yet, but I did play a Bogner Blue before I bought my BB Preamp Comp. My initial impressions on the Blue were that it was a very amp like pedal, more so than most overdrives I have tried. IT did an excellent job of retaining the character of the guitar you are playing. When I had it, I could blindfold a non-musician buddy and he'd be able to tell when I was playing a Les Paul, or when I switched to my White Falcon or a single coil equipped guitar.
That being said, I just couldn't bond with the pedal. It was way too "fizzy" for my tastes. I found that increasing the volume and gain together resulted in a loss of string to string note definition. People have said it is a transparent overdrive pedal and I did not find that to be the case. It definitely colored my sound quite a bit. Also, I think the pedal suffers from knob and switch overkill. I spent more time fiddling with the knobs and switches more than I did actually playing the guitar.
Ultimately, I settled on the BB Comp because I felt it was a much better boost pedal with the gain dimed and treble and bass at high noon out of the circuit. I usually would keep the comp toggle switch right in the middle, which is no added compression.
My Z Drive will be here Friday. I can give you a more accurate assessment then.

GuitarZ: So, I cranked up the privacy protection on my browsers, facebook, etc. I have to say I miss the music ads and such. I really don't need ads for watches and other random stuff. Maybe the internet knowing me isn't such a bad thing.

GuitarZ: Reminds me of buying my Honda. When they tried to sell me the maintenance package, I said "Is your car not reliable?" Long story short my wife teamed up with the sales lady to buy the maint package. Never again!
