Awesome in front of a tube amp

 | Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.
Created: 05/02/11
This sounds awesome in front of my tube amps. I use a Carvin Belair and various Fender tube amps. It just overdrives the input a bit, or a lot depending on how high you turn the knob. Basically, that cool, juicy, saturated tube sound you get from a clean amp when its turned up loud you can get it at any volume.
You can also combine it with other overdrive or distortion pedals or use it as a boost for solos. But I like to just leave it on because it sounds so good.
My only complaint is that the jacks are a little touchy and one may need replacing. They are some kind of funky jack that mounts to the PCB and one side is not making a good connection. It was used, but isnt worn out.

UPDATE 8/20/11

I opened it up and noticed the PCB mounted jacks had broken solder joints. They looked like bad soldering- whitish and rough looking, not smooth and silver like a good one (cold solder joint?).

Anyway, I resoldered them and it works fine now. This is a great pedal, but for some reason mine had some sloppy assembly work as other solder points look sloppy and not properly flowed so I may have to do more fixing, but for now it works.

Just one knob ix all that you need from a clean boost to an overdrive sound. Is great to boost your other drives too.

this is a beast, i only turn my knob at 9 o'clock which is 1/4 of the pedals ability and is just amazing for solo's, strongly recommend this as an overdrive pedal, soooo cheap for soooo much overdrive.

I recommend this to people who want a transparent overdrive.

I was expecting a clean boost, which it does on settings up to 11 o'clock.

I am running this through a Marshall JCM800 50W NMV with a Gibson '61 reissue SG. With the marshall at 12 o'clock and the LPB1 cranked all the way i get a really nice raw overdrive.

By the other reviews I had read I thought this would work as a volume booster. It doesn't cleanly boost though. trebles out and somewhat distorts and I tried hooking it up many ways. I wouldn't say its a bad product though.seems well made, just doesn't do what I had hoped.
