BTW, another great one is the RYRA Klone!!
I'm using backline amps set to clean most of the time. I'll have the pedal last in line except for my delay pedal. I'd prefer something with at least one tone control knob to tweak the booted signal. Right now I'm using a Keeley 2-knob Compressor as the boost with the compression turned all the way down. The high end is a little ratty though and the pedal doesn't have as much boost as I'd like. The main distortion I'm putting before the boost is a JHS Angry Charlie. I'll call up my local music shops and see what they have of these.
BTW I'm trying to avoid something with any compression. I'm already having feedback issues with the group (we're really loud). Thanks for the help! -Jack
In that case, I still stand by the Catalinbread Super Chili Picoso. While there is no tone control, it's very clean and loud as hell.
The full size TC Spark has lots of controls.
TC Spark mini works just fine as I have experienced on a board from a friend. You really don't need a lot of controls on a booster. the more controls, the more it wil alter the sound.
I am using MXR CAE linedriver boost for years now, ultimate clean, no colloring at all. use it after your drive pedal or in the send/return of your amp and you will have a perfect cleanboost.
Think as your current sound, only louder. louder, LOUDER
The RC Booster is highly regarded, I don't see it as a bad choice at all for what you want. A different suggestion, if you can find one of these, certainly go for it:
Lizard Legs Effects Flying Dragon.
no one mentions the micro amp anymore? RC isn't a bad choice either tho
+1. I run my board 100% true bypass and keep the SF at the end. Volume at unity, drive at 0 and treble set just above noon and I get a fine boost. Turn the knobbies and I have another superb OD pedal.
Why not build your own? Can't be more than about $8 in parts here. I have it as the last pedal on my board and only use it for leads. I'm thinking of building a secon to put in front of the tube screamer to give that a little more gain. But it works great as a lead boost. More volume and it doesn't change the tone at all.
Exactly how I run mine. If my amps on, my Soul Food is on.
At a couple of the back stage M&Gs I have seen the Keeley Katana. Now they they have come out with mini version with the knob on top, I may have to look into it since the DSL40C does not have a Lead 1/2 switch
Own a BB pre so I could see how an RC or an AC Booster might be of interest.
Bought a Seymour Duncan Pickup Booster (the old wedge shape) and I really like it - enough to curb my enthusiasm for considering others ... and that rarely happens with me
xotic EP-1 !
too good to be true.
I've never bought a boost pedal, I've got too many overdrive pedals to use them all. So I use one of them as a boost, and at the moment I'm using the Boss Blues Driver, with no gain at all and the volumen at about three o'clock. To me it Works really well as a boost, it's really clean that way and quite transparent.
Transparent eh? Timmy 100% or the Xotic RC Booster
It's funny - I'm exactly the same but I'm using the Digitech screamin blues!
