Last Friday night during a song Bob Burt walked up and put a small, black metalflake effects box on the stage next ot my board. It had one footswitch and one knob. Not having seen Bob in many months, at break time I was anxious to talk gear and catch up. He told me it was his new boost pedal and described his goals in the design, and wanted me to try it I did not have another patch chord, so the tryout would have to happen at home. I've now spent a few nights with the pedal. I have tried it with two different amps and a Les Paul and Strat-type. In my experience, this ia a pretty unique boost pedal. It can add a LOT of volume if wanted, but it is completely clean. Bob told me so, but I did not believe him. It is like the pedal adds clean headroom to your amp. When playing my Suhr Strat through a Victoria Double Deluxe, I fully expected the Bob Burt Boost to drive the amp into serious crunch. It did not. The amp was much louder, but it was the original sound, without added dirt. I compared the Klon with it. The BBB was louder and cleaner. I compared it to the Sexdrive. Also cleaner and louder. It gives you more with nothing extra. The Burt Boost pedal really can punch up the volume, without adding typical gainy tones. It feels great, and does not add hardness or harshness to the treble frequencies, like some others do. In fact, the natural upper end of your guitar signal is intact and sweet---nothing artificial here. The bottom end is big and very firm. This thing is EQ'd great. For fun, I wanted to see how it behaved with a gainy signal. Wow. Combined with a Klon (placed after it) in the OD setting, it actually made it sound louder, bigger and more open, without additional noise. Then I tried it with my Demeter TGA-3 channel switcher. On the distorted channels, adding the BBB just gave solos sounds more of everything-----it enhanced the bottom end and made the top end and pick attack cleaner, clearer and just plain juicy. Obviously, the volume jump wasn't as dramatic with the channel switcher, but it was certainly there. I could not top playing it because it really enhanced the feel and quickness of the amp. I still have my very old Klon, an old RX Overdriver, the Sexdrive, and the prototype of the Germ. I got rid of my TMB, Micro Amp and others. This one is certainly unique, and a keeper. Great work, Bob! Good to see you again.
