A fantastic pedal inside and out! The Blessed Mother is possibly THE most versatile drive pedal I have personally come across, being able to handle classic rock and blues, all the way to heavier metal tones (as I'm more of a metal player), all within a very aesthetically pleasing package.
Her customer service is also 10/10 top notch as well. My pedal I ordered was damaged in shipping and was not working properly, so I reached out to Heather and not only did she respond very quickly, but she sent me a return shipping label for the broken one, and shipped me out a new one that arrived much quicker than I expected, making it one of the smoothest and easiest exchanges I've had to deal with (thanks again Heather!!).
While the cost may seem a little high at first glance, it's is actually a great price for a handmade functional work of art. Being Heather makes these herself, ships them herself, and handles her customer service very well, the experience feels a lot more personal than simply buying just another pedal, and I truly think this pedal could be up there with other legendary overdrives like the Klon (bold claim, I know, but I stand by it).
Thank you for the awesome product, and service Heather!!!
Wow Do I LOVE This Pedal!!! It has quickly made itself a mainstay on my pedalboard and sounds so great, I literally always have it on. Need some distortion, run this baby before your favorite pedal and watch it bring new life to it. Want an incredible clean boost, yeah it does that too. Light breakup and overdrive, YUP. Oh and the immaculator... What a genius idea. Being able to mix in your clean signal makes this a true one of a kind.
Thanks Heather, Keep Rockin!
Not only does this OD look amazing, it sounds amazing too! The immaculator control is a truly unique function that yields tremendous results if you are looking for a drive that is "just a bit different." Stacks great with other drives too! Love it!
This is a really remarkable tool for fine-tuning your tone and learning more about what your rig is actually capable of doing. Tweak the volume and drive to the level of overdrive you're looking for, then blend back in the clean feed and tweak the EQ as you go. I am using a Telecaster with a coil-splitting humbucker on the bridge and the sheer range of tones I can get using this pedal, from the neck pickup clean to the humbucker with saturated gain, is just incredible. The guts of the pedal are super clean and well put together, and the chassis and components are all top shelf. I also love the Blessed Mother vibe - I just think it's cool - bless Her Sacred Heart.
Job very well done, Ms. Heather Brown - thanks..
I've finally had some time to play with this pedal. It is fantastic! I love the range of tones I can get with it. I'm using it in front of a Synergy rig with the
Friedman BB/BE and HBE modules and Synergy/Fryette power amp. It's absolutely wonderful paired with the BB channel covering a lot of tones with that alone. It sends the other channels into tonal bliss and makes them warmer without getting too dark. The immaculator makes it easy to dial in the sweet spot and the rest of the controls are very responsive to subtle tweaks and dynamics when playing, which I like. The Blessed Mother is a tonal blessing. Heather knocked this one out of the park. I like it so much it was a no brainer to order the Fuzz Assumption as well. I can't wait to see what kind of trouble I can get into with that one! Keep doing what you're doing, Heather. I'm looking forward to hearing what you are cooking up next!
