i recently bumped into this
is it a clean boost pedal ? i think it is... and can it actually let a strat sound like LP ??
how does it compare to other clean boosts like the BBE and MXR ? (if it actually is a clean boost)


#2
No, it just boosts the signal/gain. But it'll thicken up a Strat's sound.

thats crazy...sounds like a good plan.

but i dont think a strat can sound like an LP, but maybe a fat strat.

EDIT: he beat me to it ^

isn't that a clean boost ??

^ so clean boost = OD? because i thought that was what OD's were supposed to do

Clean boosts are more about adding a volume boost, ODs can do that too, but they're more about adding gain from the pedal.

It can create mild overdrive, all it really does is increase the amount of gain in your signal by a set amount
ohai little sig.

well ?? gain = volume....
so it is a clean boost right, a transparent volume boost ??
clean boost = transparent volume/gain boost, right ???
or am i horribly wrong ?

You're right. The pedal boosts volume, and can add a bit of its own gain too (MXR Micro amp for example)
I'm talking about gain being distortion/OD, not volume-wise.

#16
Who me? I never said it wasn't a clean boost, I just said what one is.

What're you aiming to do anyway?

ah crap i misunderstood your post, my apologies !

i was looking for a pedal that gives a volume boost for solos. and then i bumped into this and i was wondering if it actually does what it says.
could someone maybe say how it compares to a BBE or MXR clean boost pedal if you tried
those three (or two) ?

It's a great pedal. Really make a strat scream if you want it... or take the mud out of a neck humbucker.
