Thinking of putting something like an MXR Micro Amp or Zvex Super Hard on to boost the end of my pedal chain for lead parts. Here's my question: Some guitarists say that boost pedals only piss sound guys off and that they'll turn you down. Thus, when your boost is turned off, your sound drops even lower than your previous level. However, I've noticed that I've played enough gigs with inattentive sound men who could often give 2 ***** how you sound that I would like to be in control of subtle volume changes so that parts I need to stand out can do so. So, is a boost pedal appropriate in the gigging world? Or do sound men intuitively know when to boost your parts for a more lead-ish sound? PS - not bagging on the hard working sound engineers in many clubs. I should note that I have played many gigs where sound guys are super attentive to adding vocal effects on my lead vocal parts and bringing myself and our other guitarist up when it needs to happen. Many thanks!
