Mine is a Boss GE-7, I've used it for this purpose on several different amps over the years, and I've always had a great result. Right now with my little 20W Marshall, it is a killer boost for the clean channel. Actually, both channels. As good as if not better than many OD pedals I've tried.<br /> I did some sort of mod to it years ago, but I think it was just changing the red light to a brighter blue one, which I prefer. Otherwise, pretty sure the pedal is stock. <br /> Being able to shape your tone with it is the added plus. Use it in front of your amp that's set for slight break up, and it's a great solo boost!<br /> <br /> What's everyone else using for a boost?<br />

TC Electronic Spark Boost mini.<br /> <br /> A recent acquisition. Works great.

Barber Tonepress. <br /> <br /> The blend knob allows the amount of compression and sustain that I can dial-in to the dry signal, but I use it mostly to add volume and sustain.

Also a GE7 but with the Monte Allums mods to make it quieter. I found the stock model a bit hissy.

I practice through three setups with post compressor pedals set for clean/transparent boost. System 1 boost is a Keeley Oxblood Paisley, System 2 boost is Keeley-modded VL Sparkle Drive. System 3 boost is an Earthquaker Westwood.

Got a TC Spark Boost mini in December. Great little unit!<br /> <br /> Don't know why I never looked into using a clean boost but, I can thank the FDP players for the heads Up!<br /> Thanks<br /> <br /> Right after I bought the TC a friend who worked at that music store told me that in my Helix update they had included a boost.<br /> It was modeled after the xotic EP booster from what I was told and it does sound close.<br /> <br />

My clean boost is a home made BS170 MOSFET design that I found on the internet, with a few tweaks that I added.<br />

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 (Xotic RC Boost clone). Or a MOSFET Boost.

"Donner Boost Killer"<br /> <br /> Ah yes, forgot about that one!<br /> 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!)<br />

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.

<br /> 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. <br /> <br /> ‘Skronk’ = highly technical term
