Product# 584223
OVERVIEW

The Rocktron Mega Booster not only provides up to 20dB of gain, it can also enhance the tonal response of your guitar with your amplifier. The Mega Booster utilizes a singular Field Effect Transistor (FET) input that reacts with your pickups and individual playing nuances similar to the way a tube does, thus enhancing articulation and harmonic content.

As an added bonus, the gain stage is buffered, assuring that your tone is maintained throughout your signal chain.

Comes in a rugged metal chassis with retro-style, laser-etched artwork; features true-bypass operation; and includes a black velvet carrying bag.

Get your sound firing on all cylinders!

FEATURES
  • 20dB FET boost

    Comments about Rocktron Mega Booster Guitar Effects Pedal:

    Super Sturdy Construction. Of the boosters that I own, this is the most responsive. It doesn't color your tone at all, but provides a VERY NOTICEABLE boost. It also responds to your picking aggressiveness more than I would have expected and much more than my other boosters. I have it at the end of a 10 pedal chain and don't need to turn it past 12 o'clock to eliminate any loss in signal caused by the long pedal chain. No Hum. Tight input and output jacks. In addition, it has an almost unimaginable battery life of 280 hrs per 9V. One last side-note: It comes in a velvet case that reminds me of unwrapping a bottle of Crown Royal.

    Comments about Rocktron Mega Booster Guitar Effects Pedal:

    The first one would not work. Sent it back and MF sent me another. Mega boost does not exist on the second one I have. Low BTO sound is it. My 2 MF, Mod Tones pedals , mini mod boost pedal , and mod tone boost, either one will smoke it. My T Rex boost pedal blows it out of the room. MF is a great place to buy from, I have been buying from them for Decades, Great people! This is not a good boost pedal.

    Comments about Rocktron Mega Booster Guitar Effects Pedal:

    This pedal is a MUST HAVE on your pedal board! TONS of boost at your disposal and totally uncolored! I have 2 on my pedal board: 1 at the end of the chain and the other right after my JHS Sweat Tea pedal to use for leads. True bypass and totally silent when not in use. It's freakin' AWESOME! I've been playing for over 35 years and am very picky about my gear and this Roctron Mega Boaster will stay on my board for as long as I play (or until it breaks...whichever comes first).

      Comments about Rocktron Mega Booster Guitar Effects Pedal:

      Nice boost pedal. Simple design, easy to use. It slightly colors the tone of the guitar...just slightly, and in a good way. Works well with single coil & humbucker equipped guitars. Doesn't work as well with active pickups.

      Nah.

      About Me Professional Musician

      Comments about Rocktron Mega Booster Guitar Effects Pedal:

      I haven't had a lot of time to mess with it (it didn't inspire). I have a half-dozen boosts (clean to somewhat dirty), and bought this on SOTD for really cheap. I thought it might luck out given the price.

      For the most part it works as a dirty boost (as promised), but it is like boosting a transister radio. Mids get out of control, etc. I've only tried it with a few of my amp / guitar combinations, but I'll probably just keep it around with all of my other OCD / impulse purchases.

      That said, I own several boosts, so I may just have specific preferences. This might work better on a really dark rig, etc.

      As with all boosts like this, be careful with it before digital pedals. It can really screw up the way they respond.
