i didn't think the micro amp was transperant. Oh well, i still recommend the catalinbread and mi audio pedals over any other boost that i've seen

Honestly, the best way to get a clean boost is by getting an EQ and boost the signal with it. All other boost pedals are crap. Seriously, it never is like you want it. And with an EQ, you can make it exactly the way you want it.

I've had that pedal for a while too (LPB1), but it doesnt give you extra volume at all. Just a tad more gain.

it gives me extra volume.

did you just try it with distortion? Because I thought it was just adding more gain, until I switched to the clean channel. From there you really see how much of a volume boost it gives.

Yeah, just tried it on the overdrive channel. I bought it as a boost for solo's, which mostly are overdriven.

where are you people putting the boost?

afaik putting a boost in front of the amp will add more preamp gain (and thus more distortion)

if you put it in the effects loop it should only add a volume boost

I use mine in front of the amp.

But I did try both the effects loops and in front. For me and what I want it to do, in front of the amp works best for me
