Boost pedal.
Hi there. I want a transparent pedal to boost the second channel on my 5153 for leads. I have an EP booster and a G2D Creamtone. The Creamtone is great, but just doesn't work with this amp.

I'm thinking: Klon clone/AC Booster/BB Preamp/Suhr Koko boost.

Any thoughts or elaborations?

Why isn't the EP booster working for you?

mxr boost/line driver

the EP is great, for sure one of the best pure boosters out there. the keeley katana is the real deal as well

Check out the new Mesa Tone Burst as well, great boost

You could try an EQ pedal. You could use it as a boost and alter your tone a little so it's more punchy in the mix. Very versatile.

The Klon clone isn't good enough. You need the real thing. Klon or go home.

Just kidding. MXR-10band.

The EP is awesome, but it does it's own thing. I want fat singing leads with big midrange, but no loss in clarity and no bass cut (tubescreamers etc). I find the MXR boost a bit plain. I've used one before. Think fat and smooth, but still clear. The amp takes pedals great anyway. My other 2 sound pretty good... I just want a different flavour. Thinking really between the Koko boost and the Klone.

Check out the TC Electronic Spark booster. It's got 26db of boost, and enough controls to tailor the sound you want in a clean boost.

I've had a look at a few videos. I like the fatness that the Klon adds. I have a friend with an original one, and it sounds huge.

lizard leg dragon boost or draconis double boost.

godlyke maxon dual boost

koko boost is good but darn is that thing massive for the board....


yes i have the EP boost and love it. what is it not doing for you? too much tone coloration?

jimbob78 01-04-2013 04:54 PM

Thanks for the suggestions. I like it, but it doesn't quite have the fatness for an all out lead sound when playing a strat. It's almost a bit too hi-fi sometimes, but I do love it dearly. Great pedal for sure.

Klon KTR (these are the new production model)

Keeley's Java Boost is great, but pretty pricey. The MXR Micro Amp is pretty transparent, I would check that out.

ikey_ 01-05-2013 12:08 PM

im going to have to re-mention these two...

lizard leg dragon boost or draconis double boost.

Do yourself a HUGE favour an buy a Lizard Legs Draconis. Dual boost with an effects loop. Don't take my word for it look at some youtube..
