Mythical Overdrive with the gain all the way down on the main board. BYOC OD2 (clean boost and ts808)on the mini board.

Any fans of the Fulltone FB-3 Fat-Boost? Local guy's selling one for $65, I've considered checking it out...

My favorite is the Xotic RC Booster. But I also get great results with my OCD as well as either of my compressors with blend knobs (Barber TonePress or Xotic SP).

"Donner Boost Killer"

Ah yes, forgot about that one!
Got it back in October. I have it on my new mini pedal pedalboard. It's a great little boost. (especially for like 22 US bucks!)

If I want a boost, I just flip the switch on the Space Echo to a higher output setting. ;)

Trying out a new project and I demo'd the GE-7 as a boost on the clean channel last weekend. The bass player, who is also a guitar player, was amazed! He had never heard of using the GE-7 in that manner, and was also very surprised at how well it works.

Recently a Seymour Duncan Pickup Booster. Also a Soul Food with gain low.

archiestone : Just put my Fat-Boost 3 back on the board and loving it again. $65 go for it. I also have a EP Boost at the very end to give a little extra going into the amp, only set to 9 oclock and the nice ttone the EP Boost adds.

+1 on the Duncan Pickup Booster. Construction is a bit light, but it adds a really great resonance and skronk to strats & teles.

‘Skronk’ = highly technical term

It seems my Fulltone FD2 and X SP compressors each already give me that choice satisfactorily.

RC Booster for me. I've had a few clean boost pedals and those that don't add noise are good enough for me. But last few years I've been enjoying the Xotic RC Booster.

I run a custom built "Fireplace" TB in front of my AC/15. It pushes into a nice warm break up. Recently I've been running it after my Tube Screamer. Combined, the pair sound outstanding.
