The Pickup Booster is for those times you need to be just a little louder, cut through the mix with more clarity, or have to play a song with a distinctive humbucker tone on a single-coil guitar.
A true-bypass pedal with class A, low-noise circuit design, Pickup Booster can be used to dial in the tone you need for every situation. It is exceptional at emphasizing a guitar’s natural tone while adding some muscle and fatness. The Gain control can be turned down to unity (0dB) with a discrete push-pull output stage for increased drive capability. So even with the Gain knob down at 0dB, your signal chain will sound cleaner -even with long cable runs- essentially acting as a buffer on your pedalboard.
Need a humbucker sound out of that vintage Strat? The Resonance Switch makes the pedal interact directly with your pickups, allowing your single-coils to emulate either a chunky humbucker sound perfect for classic rock or blues or a high-output tone for rip roaring solos. You can also use the Pickup Booster for a clean, buffered boost with more headroom and fatten up a humbucker for maximum saturation and sustain – all with the flick of a switch.
