        Comments about G&L Double Barrel Vari-Boost Guitar Effects Pedal:

        Does what it is supposed to do - boosts volume with little change to tone other than what you dial in through the high and low knobs. Only disappointing feature is the need to unscrew back to replace the batttery. Comes with power adaptor so you can run without need for battery or through a powered pedal board. All in all, I am satisfied.

            Comments about G&L Double Barrel Vari-Boost Guitar Effects Pedal:

            The good: It's a boost pedal, so there are not a lot of whizzbang controls here, but it is solidly built. It's also compact, and works well at various points of the effects chain. It's my first boost pedal, so I really don't have much to compare it to. The Vari-High and Vari-Low switches are subtle but useful. I imagine live performers would get a lot of use from this pedal (30dB of clean boost).

            The bad - like another reviewer, I also get a popping noise upon engaging or disengaging the effect. Not a deal killer (as I'm rockin' the living room, not a club), but an annoyance.

              Comments about G&L Double Barrel Vari-Boost Guitar Effects Pedal:

              It surprises me that they don't even list the power supply as being included. That was a nice little extra. It has quite a few uses, but the bottom line is that the boost is very clean. I have not noticed the high and low settings making that much of an impact on the overall sound, but it may just be the way I am using it: right after the guitar.

                sound quality was excellent. hard to describe but kept a full tone. Unfortunagely I noticed the bypass/engage button made an audible click. Didn't hear when playing but hear when not playing and press on button.

                Great compact pedal, durable, gives a nice clean boost. Boost is adjustable, and it's plenty loud if turned up! No complaints.
