There are two choices for Boosting the sound and the tone of your aamp. Mixing your amp with another amp or using a stompbox (overdive like TS808, TS9, SD-1, etc)
Stompboxes are a cheaper choice, but how natural is the final sound?

A clean boost will give you the most transparent "boost" to the input signal from the guitar.

overdrives are great for boosting, its like an orgasm.
i dont get what you mean by "how natural" the final sound is.
by it self, an overdrive will sound like you turned the pre amp volume ALL the way up on the clean channel, wit the volume at about 12 o clock....kinda like an AC/DC tone
with distortion, the volume and tone boost is amazing.

I'd love a boost too, but I just don't jam at high volumes enough, and on would be pretty useless at bedroom volumes.

well, you can crank the booster and turn down your amp and get the same effect as leaving the amp at the same volume.

and jenny, you can build one for way cheaper than buying one.
