TC Electronic Spark Mini Booster Review - A Spark In The Dark
In spite of the unbearable Harlem Shake, the awful slim jeans or the my-favorite-black-metal-artist-is-David-Guetta studded ankle boots, trends can sometimes be good.
Jérémy Guézennec's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Useful, flexible and efficient!"
Usage is minimalist, which I think is a great quality: we want a boost, there is a boost. No need four knobs for it eventually. Here one gain knob / level that compliments the sound a bit beyond the first quarter: before it simply increases the volume. For between two, place a knob third provides a renewed sound and also a warm sound, and that's pretty cool.
At the foot is much nicer than the pedals that I used in the past, it is super soft and detects if you type or if you stay supported time the effect is not mine quite useful. You will understand: TC Electronic has not given its manual with Spark!
I now redo my pedalboard, and I think may have in raising all my other effects.
The sound quality is at the rendezvous, but it depends mostly on the hardware you are using and also your game! I play on Mexican Jazzmaster VOX amp, combining it with a Pulsar EHX sometimes lacks punch: even without being a virtuoso it gives a certain extent at all! Nothing is distorted, as was surely been said Spark doing its job. Simple to possible. Finally, the sound is still quite subtle for a boost, it is not just made to send, you can play with finely.
I use this effect for a few days ... and it has already convinced me 100%. Alone, it has less interest, but coupled with other pedals it is a real killer! I must admit that my choice was made quickly (I like TC Electronic, still look pretty simple ...) and I do it again without hesitation. We can say that 79 € is quite a strong price, but the object seems very well made and designed intelligently and I think it's worth that price. Robust, direct, original, flexible and loyal. I do not see any big flaw objectively.
If you are unsure, ask yourself if you have already found your amp / guitar lacked strength, or one of your effects seemed soft ... if so, the Spark can be a good solution.
