OVERVIEW

Juicy boost.

You love your amp, but when you jump on a lead, you just need a little more of it. There's more to tasty boosting than just brute force though. The TC Electronics Spark Mini Boost gives you a vicious 20 dB of boost and then some.

Tone To The Bone
With a full 20 dB of boost, Spark Mini Booster is a great clean booster. But that's not all it does - keep turning that knob and it'll start working its magic driving gear into peak performance! No matter what your style or set-up is, this musical miracle will maximize your potential but let your core tone shine through unaltered.

Are You Ready For PrimeTime
PrimeTime is a radical new feature that will excite guitarists around the globe. Basically, Spark Mini Booster instantly understands whether you want the pedal to be permanently on when you hit the footswitch, or just for as long as you hold the footswitch down. Which totally rocks for both 'always-on' and 'emphasizing passages' situations.

Discrete Is The New Pronounced
By adding a discrete, fully analog circuit, Spark Mini Booster adds a purely magical sense of life and excitement to your gear and tone. Each part of the circuit is carefully selected, from transistor to capacitor and from resistor to diode. What does that mean? Sweet, pure tone in all of its glory in an unparalleled clarity with zero coloration. Whether you want to make things sing or roar, this circuit ensures to maximize your tone.

FEATURES
20 dB of boost
Level knob - boost levels or drive amps to peak performance
Prime-Time - seamlessly toggle between latching and momentary modes
Place after existing distortion/overdrive to enhance drive sounds
Add grit, life and compression to your tone
Add body, punch and warmth to pickups
True bypass
DC adapter sold separately

        Comments about TC Electronic Spark Mini Booster Guitar Effects Pedal:

        Okay. I have two of these things and I use them in all sorts of configuartions... Want to push the front end of a compressing amp or pedal for killer sustain and tightness? Done! Want to boost the volume after the preamp section? Done! I own dozens of pedals and this little guy gets used more than most. Absolutely love the thing.

                  Comments about TC Electronic Spark Mini Booster Guitar Effects Pedal:

                  I use this pedal singularly or with a 10 band equalizer depending on which guitar I am using. Primarily play jazz music and the clean volume boost is perfect when it's time to improvise.The pedals boost control is very responsive to adjustment so I can dial in the correct amount of boost I want / need for the prevailing conditions with no compromises.

                  When playing I don't like having to adjust the volume knob on the guitar and my primary amp I use for jazz is single channel. So this was a great solution for me to get more volume with no tone change.

                          Tremendous amount of clean boost available. Lifts you up out of the mix when needed. Depending on where you place it in your signal chain, you can hit a pedal or the front of the amp harder and make it come alive! The choice of a momentary or latching foot switch is a useful, well thought out feature.

                                    I use a Telecaster with single coils and a Stratocaster with humbuckers during live shows. When I switch between the two there would always be a volume difference which was irritating especially for the sound guy. So I got this pedal to fix that gap. Tossed it in the effects loop and it gives me that little extra boost when using single coils to match the humbuckers volume.

                                    Also if you use it in the front end it will add a little break up, almost like a low overdrive. Sounds so good I might buy another one for just this

                                      There's one switch and one knob, select your speed and rawk! Great clean boost and the momentary switch is a winner for me, makes one wonder why it hasn't been done before. Gives an extra dimension to your sound and will definitely help you cut through the mix. Its a great value buy.

                                          Great clean boost. The nicest feature about this pedal is the two function footswitch that has a momentary feature when you leave your foot on the pedal. Sound quality is great just like i've come to expect from TC.

                                            I was looking for a boost to run in my amp's effects loop for some solo's and leads when the amp is already distorted. This pedal is perfect for that function. The most important feature to me on this pedal is the "soft click" foot switch. When engaging the pedal, there is no "pop" (unlike some other pedals that i tried), just a perfectly clean volume boost. The tone doesn't change, everything just gets a bit louder so that the minor lead parts that I play stand out in the mix.

                                              I love it! Love it! Love it! I use this on my bass to give me a slight boost when I need it. I keep the level set at about 8 o'clock. And that's plenty of boost for me. It does add just a little bit of dirt on the low end, but I think that just adds to the character of my sound. This was the perfect pedal for me.
