Ok for starters if you have SD's go for the SD pickup booster. But stop, i have recently bought the nano muff by EHX and boy it kicks ass. Anyways if you roll down your guitar volume ever so slightly, you can turn this into one of the best boost pedals ever. Clean rich boost that fattens up and broadens your tone and realy gives it some oomph! Great OD/Fuzz tone aswell. This will only set you back about $40 in the US aswell!

WRONG.

The only reason it exists is because drugs get people fucked up, and people love getting fucked up.

There's always the Keeley Katana...

I've never played the SD pu booster, but I have played the Micro Amp. It was pretty good, I don't know how it would work on a ss amp though.

Plus: David Gilmour, Eric Clapton, Santana... who doesn't use a micro amp?

MXR Micro amp and SD pickup booster are simply "volume boost" pedals. Good thing about these pedals are they can boost as much, or more than an EQ pedal but maintain noise at a minimum. So its ideal if you have a long chain of effects and would want to boost the signal at the end, or in your case, want a transparent volume boost

I haven't used the SD booster much, but from what I have played it seemed ok. I've heard good things too.

The MXR Micro Amp is a good pedal for sure, classic, tested and true. Can't really go wrong IMO.

The Electro Harmonix LPB-1 is also a nice booster. Probably my favorite of the bunch.

Hard to explain...you should go try them yourself. It adds a bit of compression to the top of the waveform which fattens it up a wee bit. It's "warmer" sounding than the Microamp IMO.

yeah, i've built an LPB-1, and if it was the same as the production one, they're great. and the nano one is only like $40. a bargain.

Cheap amps are "that bad". They suck up your tone like cocaine at Kate Moss' party.

I thought the Keeley katana boost is the ....... BOUTIQUE micro amp ??
Tone is all ...... well probably 75%, in your fingers.
The rest depends on your wallet's thickness !!

Keep the faith, baby!!
