I think this pedal works really well as clean boost. It has a big gain knob and 3 small knobs (bass, treble and volume) if you want to set your EQ. I personally think simple function pedal shouldn't take too much space on board. This will do and for the price it is worth trying.
Can't comment of the build quality yet as I only have it for a month but so far still good. The power jack is made of plastic and might be the weak link of this pedal.
