« Dual Channel Clean Boost with 'Muscle' »Published on 05/01/23 at 02:57
If the above isn’t enough, Boostequila drives an amp in such a way that the mids burst through, and this produces a very similar response to a low-to-mid gain pedal. But what makes it even more impressive is the nature of Boostequila. This must be one of the cleanest boosts available. Cleans remain clean and dirty simply becomes more aggressive; in either instance, the added detail and robustness is superb and noticeable.
The demo included touches on some basic examples, but there could be quite a bit of tweaking, if so desired. Each EQ knob makes a difference, anywhere from a simple treble boost (fantastic without any upper-end harshness) to producing a massive, heavy crunch with a typical dirty amp. The ‘Muscle’ knob then permits you to hone in on the bottom end, to clean up any mud or to add deep punch to thin-sounding pickups. Boostequila is one of those ‘always-on’ pedals. It retails as a stand-alone pedal (complete with dual-switching mode), but also is a module for a LiberaToe pedal switching platform.
