SGT-SpurGuitarTech Boost Pedal
The SGT-SpurGuitarTech Boost pedal is a killer volume boost pedal made in England, UK. I was lucky enough to try and demo the first one of these online and I have nothing but great things to say about it. If you love your amp tone and don’t want to mess with it and want either more volume or require a preamp boost pedal before another overdrive, this is a perfect solution. You can also run it after another pedal for a volume and treble boost.
This pedal is really well made and features one “crackle okay” negative feedback volume/boost pot (based on 60’s style pots) on the front as well as an on off switch. Crackle okay refers to the noise the pot makes when you turn it. This is normal and is highly sought after by some players.
This particular pedal is handmade and I had a chance to open it as well and it’s extremely well made internally using great components. The price is also great, so please check them out online if you’re digging it on the SpurGuitarTech Website.
I have this pedal on my pedal board after my Klon KTR which not only increases the sustain on the pedal but it also kicks up the volume as well. Running this before the Klon would give me similar results only it wouldn’t be increasing the treble. Running it after another pedal is where the treble boost kicks in. Really, you can run it however you like and it’s all up to what works best for you, so experiment around and see how it goes.
[usr 4.75] – There’s no surprise to you that I really like this pedal. The guys at SpurGuitarTech were nice enough to put my logo on it and it looks and sounds great. This pedal is like the best parts of the BBE Boosta Grande mixed with the Gamut Boost Pedal. If you want a volume boost you can also use as a treble boost, check into this one, as it delivers the goods.
