Cut through any mix with heaps of clarity and be heard like never before.

The TC Electronic Spark Booster guitar effects pedal works great as an always on type of effect, adding life, grit and compression to your sound in a way that oozes tone. Add body, punch and warmth to pickups and drive amps to peak performance. The Spark Booster also shines when used as a pure level boost. It's the perfect tool to prime solos, highlight parts and add dimension to your amp or distortion pedal.

The level knob allows you to add 26 dB of boost, raising the volume without altering the character of your tone. The Gain knob is perfect for adding a hint of breakup or slight compression to a clean amp.

The active EQ controls consist of Bass and Treble knobs. They form the perfect tone-shaping tool and amplify frequency areas, as well as be used to create deep, extended lows or to add beautiful top-end sparkle.

A toggle switch allows for three settings. The Clean setting boosts your signal equally across the frequency spectrum. The Fat setting fattens up sounds and adds life and punch to your sound, and allows for precise tonal shaping with the EQ and Gain knobs. The Mid-boost section provides a bump in the mids.

It’s the fourth entry for Overdrive/Distortion pedals in the TC Electronic compact pedal series. Based on the runaway success of the classic-sounding Dark Matter Distortion, the more modern voiced Röttweiler Distortion and the MojoMojo Overdrive.

      Comments about TC Electronic Spark Booster Guitar Effects Pedal:

      This pedal is one of the best deals out there. The pedal has 3 flavors of boost and all sound killer. Clean boost is that, clean sparkly, without fuzz. The mid boost just sends an over driven amp to sweet singing saturation, giving you more of your amp's tones, pedal stays transparent. Fat boost is as described, thick, but somehow still sounds like EQ on the amp rather than colored by a pedal.

      The Spark has earned a permanent spot on my pedal board, along side a MP Sweet Honey, Timmy, OCD, Empress Multidrive, and Lovepedal Purple Plexi.

          Great versatile boost pedal. Effective 2 band EQ. Great 'on the edge of breaking up' drive. I got a free Spark Boost from Christmas offer and now run 2 back to back. The results sound utterly dynamic. Almost metal when gain and bass maxed out in Fat mode. Best of all, responds to pick attack and cleans up perfectly. Makes my distortion pedal sound useless. I'm not one for doing online demos but I may do it for this....

            Didn't expect to receive it so fast after ordering, but I'm glad I did - gave me more time to dial in those sweet tones! Which by the way..are not hard to get with this thing. If my amp was a car..it did not have spark plugs before, now it does!

              Comments about TC Electronic Spark Booster Guitar Effects Pedal:

              Great pedal. It's very clear sounding and is very versatile with the toggle-selectable voicing and tone controls. It's my first TC product so I don't have much experience with them but it seems very well built. I use it for a slight gain boost to push my plexi but you can get plenty of volume out of it for use as a lead boost if you desire. Not that it really matters, but it looks pretty cool too.

                Comments about TC Electronic Spark Booster Guitar Effects Pedal:

                If you play guitar you need this pedal.It should be called eversomuchmoreso,because it makes everything sound better.in front of or after your effect chain,pushing an OD,by itself,it does it all.You can use it as a slight od to dirty up a clean channel for blues or garage rock,push a dirty channel of an amp harder,use it as a clean boost for solos,or on all the time to brighten your overall sound.I have tried several applications and orders in my chain with this and love them all.This is 100 % a winner of a pedal,that you will be happy you own.I don't gig,just play and record at home for fun,but it would be even better for a guitarist playing out.

                  Comments about TC Electronic Spark Booster Guitar Effects Pedal:

                  Like most players, I've found myself constantly searching for that perfect tone, never as satisfied as I'd like to be. And though I'm not proclaiming this to be some sort of Holy Grail, this pedal has opened up my tones in a huge way. Let me be more specific.

                  Simply stomp the box and you get a solid lead tone out of this bad boy. I keep the mid-boost on all the time, but the fat and clean settings are great as well. Tone shaping is incredibly simple; it's just a great sounding pedal and you'll have a sound you like in minutes. I use it on top of either a DS-1 or BD-2 depending on what kind of distortion the song calls for and it gives me a searing lead tone every time.

                  To put it simply, this is just a versatile, easy-to-use pedal, and best of all it sounds absolutely killer. It will give your distortion pedals depth, boost the hell out of your cleans, and give you the lead tone you need to cut through the mix. Bravo.

                        I have tried a few boosters looking for that edge when you need it, this one is great and has so much power that the level only stays at 11 oclock . It makes your clean channel sound great as well as searing leads when you kick it in on your lead channel. Great box highley recommend !

                          I originally purchased a similar product: the Voodoo Labs Giggity boost pedal after some seeing some great demos online but when I received it just didn't do anythings for me. I decided to try the TC Spark Booster instead, and found that I loved the the EQ and mild drive available from this pedal much, much more. It may be a case of this pedal stacking better with my existing gear, but for me it's a much more versatile tool. The only thing I don't like is the white LED which is blinding.
