Quoted from [this interview](https://www.musicradar.com/news/dave-keuning-learn-more-voicings-if-you-want-to-express-different-emotions-through-your-guitar) that also shows Dave's solo career pedalboard: > This boost is just something my tech recommended. We only use it on certain nights where we need it, on the fly, if the room sounds a certain way. It's good to adjust whenever we need, almost like an overall EQ.more
This image of Danielle's pedalboard shows a Seymour Duncan Pickup Booster on the left hand side. When compared to [this other image](http://41.media.tumblr.com/f82319f6d8beefa62aec160d7a897bfc/tumblr_mzih8jgZhQ1sx94wlo1_1280.jpg), as well as this overhead shot at :07s in [this video](https://youtu.be/AtADweFd5AE), it's safe to assume that this image is of her board because of the repeated pedals and the same basic layout.more
"I’m the proud user and abuser of both the Seymour Duncan Pickup Booster & Shape Shifter pedals. The Pickup Booster gives any amp that extra gain (without thinning out the low end of your tone like some classic overdrive pedals do) meaning you don’t have to push the amp to trouser-flapping volumes, and is an essential weapon when flying in to hired-backline shows. You never know what you’re gonna get from some rental amps, this little box gives it that well needed surge, it’s like steroids for a tube amp. It’s saved my sound for two summers when flying into random festivals and such. The Shape Shifter is probably the most versatile Tremolo out there; the controls allow you to dial in some insane throbs and pulses, the rate and depth both feature a range that is far wider than any other I’ve used, and the shape knob is an ingenious first for me. The tap/ratio control is a benchmark that other brands should wake up and compete with. All that and they’re built like tanks that take an endless beating. Can’t say enough good things about ’em.”more
" Out of the regular output of the volume pedal I go into a Seymour-Duncan Pickup Booster. A simple clean boost pedal that just makes my guitar push my amps harder," Mike says, in Paste magazine's [article](http://www.pastemagazine.com/blogs/lists/2012/05/14-guitarists-talk-about-their-pedal-boards.html?a=1).more
I love this pedal, gives a great boost and sometimes adds a bit of saturation. I like that in boosts, I use it more to really saturate my AC30. The only thing I have never understood is how the pickup selection works. I don't really care for that, but I give it 4 stars only because of that. Love the big chicken head knob.
