      Comments about Blackstar Boost Guitar Effects Pedal:

      This pedal boosts your signal without changing it, unless you want to change it and tweek the tone controls. I use a boost pedal in my effects loop as the last pedal in the chain to give me a boost during solos so I can cut through the mix. I needed a pedal that kept my sound unchanged and this one does just that. But if want to beef up the solo tone I can. I run two different amp and pedal board rigs depending on the gig size and plan to buy another one. It's a great pedal and you will be very pleased with it.

        Comments about Blackstar Boost Guitar Effects Pedal:

        Got this pedal last week. I was surprised when I opened the battery compartment and found a new battery waiting to be plugged in. I plugged the pedal in set everything at 12 o'clock and instantly realized this pedal is virtually transparent while fattening the tone a bit. I was expecting just a volume boost, and it will boost volume with the level control. But that fattening of tone was sooo sweet. This pedal is an always on pedal for me now. I absolutely am loving this pedal. I put single coil and humbuckers through it with my Fender Hotrod and it worked great with either. Every setting on this pedal is a great tone. From crystal clear cleans to an crunchy overdriven tone. Loving it. I am so happy with this product.

            Comments about Blackstar Boost Guitar Effects Pedal:

            I bought this box a few months ago on the SDOTD. It's been making me smile since. I have one other clean boost, the EHX LB-1, and although a decent pedal, it adds some mid coloration to my sound. When I first received the Blackstar LT Boost, I plugged it in to my 57 Champ clone build with all knobs set at noon on the pedal. At first, I thought maybe it wasn't working when I kicked it on as there was no difference in the sound. Then I began turning the knobs and it started subtly changing the tone. I then realized this pedal boosts OR cuts the frequencies. First pleasant surprise! I own many dirt pedals, most of which are overdrives as I usually prefer a "just pushed" tube tone. I did however purchase a Way Huge Fat Sandwich for heavier distortion when life calls for it. It is a VERY "in your face" edgy distortion, even with the internal trim pots turned down. I tried putting the LT Boost in front of it and it just made it a louder edgy distortion. THEN, I put this pedal after the Fat Sandwich with the gain and bass knobs at about 1 o'clock and the treble about 2 o'clock, and...WOW! It totally smoothed out all the harshness and turned it into a very usable high gain sound -Robin Trower, Pat Travers, Judas Priest, etc. I've also been using a Boss FBM-1 which works great to get that '59 Bassman tone from my little Champ amp. But then kick this pedal in behind it and...bam! Sounds like a cranked Fender Bassman at apartment volumes. Together with my Epi Swingster hollow body, I'm in Brian Setzer heaven! I would definitely buy this pedal at regular price ( or even more ) now that I know how versatile it is. Very simple layout and so many usable tones. The on/off switch is also ultra smooth and quiet. I highly recommend this pedal.

                Comments about Blackstar Boost Guitar Effects Pedal:

                I had been looking for something to give a clean boost in volume without dealing with the big lever type volume pedals.
                Haven't had this pedal very long but so far it's doing just what I want. Nice clean boost with additional bass/treble if so desired. Great for those lead type fills. Another nice thing is it fits in a Boss type pedal board...though the switch is a little low compared to the Boss pedals. It does have a momentary off/on switch so there is no click when pressing.
                Run it with a typical 9V AC unit (Ispot)and it works fine. Glad I found it...plus the "stupid deal" of the day helped big time.

                Comments about Blackstar Boost Guitar Effects Pedal:

                Just received this pedal and couldn't stop using it. I am very impressed with the tone. Plugged it in to my old JCM800 and "WOW"...very natural sounding. Adds a very tube-like push. I very quickly dialed in a lot of usable tones. I also found that, in addition to boosting, the three controls (bass, treble, and gain) cut unlike other overdrive or boost pedals. This is a very neat feature. Highly recommend this pedal, especially for old Marshall guys like me.
