I was looking for a general purpose boost pedal. I play guitar, bass, and electric violin. So this is immediately useful for all of these. This boost offers a good degree of control over the selection of the amount of boost you give it. The signal is very clean and noise-free. Internally it is a TL061 op amp based circuit, thru hole parts construction. the PCB is well grounded to help keep out stray noise too. The construction is very solid and heavy, durable feeling case. So it is not likely to get broken easily. It does support a 9V battery which is nice option. Though I always use the power adapter on my board.

Probably the simplest boost pedal ever. With just one knob you can get a nice pushed sound to screaming leads with any colour added to your tone. Simply great!
