Pigtronix Class A Boost Micro
The Pigtronix Class A Micro delivers 20dB of beautifully clean, JFET transistor-driven gain, fattening everything you feed into it. This pedal's impressive signal-to-noise performance allows you to put it anywhere in your pedal chain. Use it to push your overdrive and distortion pedals into a saturated crunch, or goose the front end of your tube amp to sweeten your tone. It's also great for adding extra gain and volume to solos. Whether you need extra punch or enough fuel for your massive pedalboard, you’re going to love the Class A Micro.
Boost pedals raise the level of your signal. If you’ve got a sweet tube amplifier, a boost pedal with a generous amount of gain will push it into lead-tone territory. Set the amp right before its breakup point, and you’ll be able to switch between clean and overdriven tones. At Sweetwater, we've also placed a boost pedal at the end of a long chain of pedals to maintain our guitar's signal level to the amp. And of course, if you have a guitar with a low output, a boost pedal will bump it up before it hits your effects chain. Basically, look for a boost pedal when you need to raise your signal level.
