Level Boost Pedal with Up to 20dB of Gain Boost, True Bypass Circuitry, and Momentary/Latch Switching Modes
This little pedal ROCKS! I have used EQ pedals, light and transparent overdrives and volume pedals in the past to give me that lift when I am soloing or emphasizing a phrase. Always struggling to get that lift. Rotated off this pedal meets guitar volume.. that is parity... (EQ pedal is half way, with opportunity to decrease volume). This is a boost. At 9 o'clock it is a completely suitable soloing and phrasing volume. At 12 0'clock I was clambering to turn it back down a touch... and it still winds around to 5 o'clock. Don't let size fool you... 20db. No false claims. The best feature is the unlatched footswitch. Stomp it on for the spotlight moments, press and hold to grab a moment then as your foot leaves, so does the boost.
It acts transparently with anything you put in front of it, it adds volume output to make anything sound full (balls!) with no added grit (though it could cause your amp or other gains stages to do that). I use it through my FX loops to push my output volume while keep other less neutral boosters through my amps' inputs to add some more grit/colour.
Is a very useful tool as it excels on the regular application that one expects from (clean) boosters but also stands ahead of the rest with its PrimeTime feature (dual action switch that works as momentary or permanent depending on your foot action if you just quickly tap or if you hold it pressed), this nice bonus just sets it apart from any of its competitors by offering a peculiar approach of inspiring potential.
This is a transparent awesome boost unit, very cheap, around 40 bucks, and great build quality, will give you what you need depending where you wanna place it in your signal chain, i prefer it after everything and before my amp, gives a clear transparent volume bump to make lead work shine
The output on my sixties Ibanez pickups is quite weak, but the sound is very beautiful. I just wanted to give some more power (and some girt, if tweaked) to the signal, and this little booster sounds great, giving plenty of drive. I use it on 9 o'clock, but the overall sound gets wonderful when fully clockwise (I guess I'll put some other overdrive pedal on retirement, coz presence and bite is what I really want first, on a clean channel)
Sounds nice and clean, perfect if you need to adjust your volume during a song, or if you need a soloboost. Very transparent. If you need a midpush in your soloboost to cut through, you should look elsewhere.
I had not much room on my pedal board and I needed a volume booster when I was practicing with my band at the rehearsal factory with different amps so I bought this little guy. Great pedal. You can use it as a volume booster if placed in the effects loop of your amp or if you place it in front of your amp it will give you a little overdrive. Very versatile pedal.
Are you looking for a really clean, transparent boost for your pedalboard? Say no more. This little box is what you need. It won't increase the mid frequencies like the Xotic EP Booster does, (not a bad thing, but it isn't my thing). It will do what is build for: increasing your overall volume. A side note: you won't hear any clipping when activated.
If you're looking for a completely transparent boost pedal this is the one. It can boost up to 20dB without colouring your tone at all. The PrimTime (tm) switching allows you to either switch it on and off as you would normally expect to, but also allows momentary operation if you hold the switch down. The smaller size makes it easy to patch it into your existing chain, wherever you choose to place it.
