    It's a no thrills boost but it sounds mighty fine. Try the Bad Bob Boost, I've had mine for about a month. Here is some info on the pedal:

    I think there is one available in the emporium.

    I think you're 'reading' the RC correctly. I'm only using it to kick an OD pedal in high gear.

    Medium range 'boost' pedals are a wierd animal. Is it a boost or an OD pedal? Not sure how you're fixed for ODs, but I've been using the Eternity with my class A amps. Match made in heaven!

    the bad bob is based on jack orman (amz)'s mini-boost which is extremely cheap and easy to build, even if you've never handled a soldering iron before. i highly recommend giving the DIY route a shot!

    how about a Pharoah Amp Class A Boost...it can get a clean or dirty boost depending on how you set it.....it's a great booster for the money....or a little known ProAnalog Scott 60 is great!...lots of Headroom!!...also fairly cheap...
