OVERVIEW

Boost pedal with important extras.

There's more to a boost pedal than just goosing the gain a bit. The Moog MF Boost features a tone-enhancing VCA boost/buffer pedal with two selectable signal paths, tone-shaping circuit, natural compression, and expression pedal control of Gain.

A great way for a guitarist in a band with only one guitar to switch between lead and vocal accompaniment rhythm is with a boost pedal. The tone doesn't shift radically, but it does give you some extra body and presence for when you abandon chords for individual strings. The MF Boost is perfect for the trio rock guitarist, or any other guitarist who finds him or herself in need of a little extra sock now and then.

The MF Boost is an Expression enhanced, twin topology boost pedal that allows you to select between an articulate VCA signal path and a colored OTA signal path. This completely unique boost design works with your guitar and amplifier to conjure boutique sound and responsiveness from any guitar/amplifier combination. Its natural compression and sound enhancement also bring out the best tone and performance in other effects pedals. When paired with an expression pedal, the MF Boost can be used as a tone enhancing volume pedal or sweepable-gain boost pedal. The expression pedal input also provides access to higher gain values not available on the panel.

CONTROLS

GAIN- Sets the input gain from off to maximum. With the Boost switch in the down position (VCA mode), this knob should be set to maximum. In this setting you will notice tighter bottom, focused midrange, and a more open top end. With Boost in the up position (clipped OTA mode), the sound is creamy and lightly compressed with a slightly more forward midrange.

BOOST - In the down position, signal is sent through the VCA signal path providing clean, articulate tonal enhancement with a subtle 6dB boost (12dB+ w/ expression). This setting feels and sounds like a boutique amp in a pedal. With the switch in the up position, signal is sent through the clipped OTA path providing 12dB of boost (18dB+ w/ expression). This path has a creamy, classic tone that bonds guitar and amplifier for everything from subtle bite and drive to singing leads. Both settings have a naturally occurring musical compression.

TONE- At higher settings this control adds openness, note articulation and picking detail. In this setting the top-end in your amplifier is sweetened while remaining smooth, the mids become focused, and the bottom end appears more robust and tight. At lower settings the Tone control can be used to fatten up an amp or tame harsh top-end.

LEVEL- Level allows you to trim the output of the Boost while maintaining input gain coloration. This control does not go completely off.

Comments about Moog Minifooger Boost Guitar Effects Pedal:

Good, simple transparent boost. Sounds great, will push your tube amp just right, and stacks well with other pedals. The only downside is there is more boost on tap that is not accessible unless you get an expression pedal, which can take you beyond the range of the gain control by itself when turned all the way up. However, the main reason I love the new Minifooger line is because they all can use an expression pedal to make changes on the fly!

Comments about Moog Minifooger Boost Guitar Effects Pedal:

I was looking for a cost effective way to boost signal going into my Analog Rytm's absurdly low level input. I'm not a guitar player, i've been using it with synthesizers and am very happy with the results! Not only does it boost the level past what I needed, but it adds a nice thick roundness to anything that goes through it. The two boost settings offer unique tonal characteristics that naturally compress the signal and make things sound silky smooth. Using the CV outputs on my Analog Four, I can get a really nice pseudo side-chain effect when using a tempo synced LFO. Very happy with this product and it's responsiveness to various signals.

    Comments about Moog Minifooger Boost Guitar Effects Pedal:

    I'm still looking for something to accompany my Tech 21 - British pedal with SansAmp..however not much luck, I've tried 5 pedals and all seem to be sleepers compared to the Tech 21 pedal. I sent this back to MF for an exchange with a Boss OD-1X to see how that pedal sounds. This pedal my sound great if maybe used with an amplifier where you could turn up the gain and let it rip. I don't know, I used this on my Jam Hub which is quite and I can just put on the ear phones and play away.
