Hi, is it a good idea to boost volume and some frequencies when solo, i dont wanna use an OD like TS or BM because I want to keep original tone no need to add gain, just boost a little bit high or mid freq. Need some advices.
I mostly use my Boss GE-7 as a boost, i add a bit of low-mids with it as well.

This is my sig!
Well boosting mids will add a bit of gain on top but yea I use two EQs religiously with my Fender amp to give it a high gain Marshall-esque sound.
It's a fine way to boost an amp. The MXR 10 band is particularly good for this application because you can adjust the boost without having to touch the frequency sliders. You can dial in the perfect curve and then just adjust the overall level.

The MXR ten band has input and output levels... I'm not sure how useful these are but it seems to me playing with them could have good results.
