    Pls tell me about it, I just heard about it today. It's a boost, I get that, but what is unique about it?

    I believe it's a Jack Orman Mu-amp Jfet booster (like the analog.man bad bob)

    It sounds like a herd of elephants.

    It is a jack orman mu amp but this version also brings out lower mids, Sean had said on the lovepedal thread that he made it to be run after a tubescreamer to beef up a strat to get that srv sound (either he made it for that or people were using it for that) I run mine with a strat at unity to beef up the sound, unity is around 9 or 10 o clock so there is still a ton of boost available and it breaks up nicely, not bad for $50

    There's some good info from the builder himself in this post.
    Other similar pedals are the Fulltone Fat Boosts, the Jack Orman Mosfet boost, and the Analogman Bad Bob.

    I actually think the Greer Special Request sounds similar as well but I don't know whether it belongs to the Mu-Amp family as far as its circuitry.
