Clean Boost Pedal

I have a new clean boost pedal - it's called 19 Sixty 3 and it is very nice indeed. A booster pedal can be used in a few different ways, but mostly it is for boosting your signal from your guitar, before it goes into your tube amp. The booster pedal can also be used for purpose of bringing up your lead volume when it's time for a guitar solo.

What is really cool with the 19 Sixty 3 is that it mimics a 60s Fender Blackface preamp circuit. I love the sound I get when I through this pedal into my Hellhound set clean. I turn up the level on the boost pedal quite a bit, and my amp just livens up like you wouldn't believe. The notes just jump out of it!

It does sound good with overdrive and distortion too. With a slightly dirty amp setting, you can get a great lead tone with lots of sustain and punch to it, when you kick on the 19 Sixty 3.

It is built by Todd over at Guitar Works, and it is well worth the price.

I have been using a MXR Micro Amp for a while now, but it is being replaced by the 19 Sixty 3, because it has more clarity and better tone.

I have a couple of video clips you can check out.
Here is an SX Strat boost pedal video clip you can check out, and here is a Tele with Bad Monkey clip.
