    Not just a volume booster, it's a top-notch loudspeaker emulator with immense bass attack.

    The Super Booster bass effect pedal from Markbass brings out the full potential of your axe, by boosting your bass tone with EQ-neutral clarity, while also featuring some signature Markbass filters. The VLE (Vintage Loudspeaker Emulator) filters out high frequencies to give you a mellower, less modern sound. The VPF (Variable Pre-shape Filter) boosts lows and highs, and cuts mids: especially great for slap and pick playing. The Markbass Super Booster pedal also gives you a clean Boost, very handy for helping you stand out when taking a solo. This highly practical effects pedal features true bypass and buffered bypass circuitry and also acts as an active DI.

    The Markbass Super Booster bass pedal can add pure, EQ-neutral gain ranging from 0dB to 14dB, simply by turning the level boost knob. This feature can be used in any application where you require extra gain—for example, adding a subtle volume boost for a solo. Not only designed for bass, this Markbass pedal can also be used with guitars or any acoustic or electric instruments, in either live or studio applications, thanks to its professional-grade onboard active DI. The Super Booster is not only a simple volume booster; it also features the two trademark Markbass VLE and VPF filters, which allow you to change the character of your sound to suit a wide variety of musical styles.

    For many Markbass amp users, the VLE and VPF filters are the only EQ knobs they turn. This bass effect and volume pedal allows anyone to add these two magic filters to their sound.

        Comments about Markbass Super Booster Bass Effect Pedal:

        I picked this pedal up because I was looking for a good boost as well as a DI. I didn't expect to find them in the same pedal so when I saw the Markbass Super Booster I was thrilled!

        The boost is about as clean a boost as I've ever tried. Most boost pedals also seem to slightly color my tone or distort it but not this pedal. Totally clean.

        The VLE and VPF knobs are just pure magic. I have a Markbass Little Mark Rocker 500 amp so I was already familiar with these knobs. Even though I also have the same knobs on my head, having another set allows me even more versatility.

        This pedal needs a 12v power supply (which is included) so you can't daisy-chain it with your One-Spot. While that may be an issue for some people, its not for me. The benefits of this pedal far outweigh the minor hassle of having to plug it in with a 12v power supply.

        If you don't have a Markbass head but still want something to give you a Markbass tone, this pedal is perfect for you. If you have a Markbass head, this pedal will give you even greater control of your already excellent tone!

        Comments about Markbass Super Booster Bass Effect Pedal:

        I initially bought this as a dedicated Volume Boost to lift my bass in the mix when I slap. It works PERFECTLY for that. Generally, I don't enjoy tweaking knobs and dinking around with pedals, but I am looking forward to experimenting with the settings on this one. Very pleased.

          Comments about Markbass Super Booster Bass Effect Pedal:

          I primarily use the VLE effect for blues. This pedal does a great job emmulating the tone of older vintage bass amps. It makes changing tones a breeze by putting it all in one knob, rather than trying to reset my amp EQ between songs when onstage.

          Super Boosted My Tone

          By Albert Mills IV

          from Florida

          Comments about Markbass Super Booster Bass Effect Pedal:

          Absolutley fantastic pedal that I'd recommend to any fellow bass player. It's lovely.
          This pedal is remarkable, though not quite as detailed as a graphic EQ you'll get tons of great sounds out of this little toy.
          The build seems to be fantastic, made in Italy. The footswitches feel like they could be a little bit better, but I'm new to pedals so for all I know they could all come like that. But It's definitely a solid pedal.
          Well worth the price just for the tone. The boost function makes this pedal even better.

          Best Pedal Period

          By pmfreeman

          Comments about Markbass Super Booster Bass Effect Pedal:

          I've been playing bass for 38 years and this product can't be beat. No matter what brand or size amp you have, this will boost the power and give you EQ possibilities like nothing else on the market. Try it and you will buy it.

          This pedal was just what I needed.

          By G. Patrick Bryant

          from Huntsville, AL

          Comments about Markbass Super Booster Bass Effect Pedal:

          My Rickenbacker 4001 Stereo with its passive electronics was simply not cutting it in my church's driving contemporary praise and worship team. The Markbass Super Booster Bass Effect Pedal has turned out to be precisely what the Ric needed. I have experienced absolutely no added noise when using the boost and/or envelope-shaping controls. The case is solidly well-made and the switches are industrial grade. The only reason I did not give this pedal a 5.0 in the value category is because I find the recessed knobs a little difficult to manipulate. A more realistic features rating would be 4.9, but that grade is not available in this evaluation. Overall, I believe you'll be very pleased with this pedal.

          bass flexibility

          By Sylbass

          from Quebec

          Comments about Markbass Super Booster Bass Effect Pedal:

          This little baby is just great!The added noise when you push up either the gain and the pre-shape filter is remarkably low! Both filters work exactly like those found on the Markbass amps!The emulator gives a vintage sound somewhat similar to a tone on a passive bass! The pre-shape cuts mids while boosting lows and highs for a modern slap sound! That's it ? Nope ! It triples out as the most efficient DI i've ever plugged into ! Every bass player should have one!
