This little pedal does increase your tone and sound quite a bit. It is great for week sounding pickups or not so powerful bass amps. It about as simple as pie to figure out. There are two footswitches and three knobs to control your over all volume and sound.

This pedal is really just a boost pedal and it doesn't distort your tone very much or at all depending on how you run it. If you run it into a bass amp that has some overdrive in the preamp then this pedal will give you a slight kick in overdrive but hardly anything. This pedal works for long cables, weak guitars, and weak sounding amps. There is also a market for this pedal with people who what more drive to their tone.

SOUND QUALITY

The first footswitch control the pedal on and off. This is really for me the only purpose for this pedal. The other footswitch controls some EQing and filters which don't change the sound too much unless it is all the way up or all the way down.

The sound quality is pretty nice for that extra kick. It doesn't really change your tone but just gives you more of what you really need. The second switch which mixes it up a bit does have some variants. The first control knobs color your tone from sort of a vintage to modern loud speaker. The second control knob just control your EQing filters

OVERALL OPINION

At new these pedals come in at around $130 which isn't bad for what this little thing can do. This is a great buy for those needing a solid boost pedal that it make quite well. I would recommend this pedal to anyone getting signal loss from running long cables or someone who needs a touch of drive to your tone. You may never switch if off once you get it
