Guitar Pick Up Booster Driver Pedals – Guitar Effects


Guitar Pick Up Booster Driver Pedals, or as they are sometimes know, a  boost pedal or driver pedal, are propably the simplest of all gain-based guitar pedals – boosters do exactly what they say. That said they are a vital part of the guitar players pedal board as boosting the guitar signal, cleanly, can have a dramatic effect on the following pedals like fuzz and distortion. A booster can be used to eliminate some of the problems that are experienced with long cable runs and miss matches in the impedance of different guitar effects. Using a good quality guitar pick up booster driver pedal can take your guitar tone to a totally new level. Personally, I use a Artec dual booster pedal direct into my Hotone KOMP compressor pedal and this makes my guitar sound big and bright. Taking the signal from the guitar pick up and boosting the volume of the signal. A boost pedal acts like an extra gain stage on the amplifier input. If used correctly a booster pedal can be a very versatile addition to your guitar pedal board adding extra flavor to the guitar signal chain and overall sound. Guitar booster pedals were among the earliest effect pedals to be launched, first being marketed as treble boosters.

In the 60s, many famous players used treble boosters to push their valve driven Marshall guitar amps and Vox guitar amps to achieve a smooth, natural-sounding distortion. Afterwards overdrive pedals and distortion pedals were introduced giving extra functionality. Booster pedals have been used by players like Eric Clapton,  Jimmy Page and Brian May. Choose your booster pedal wisely, cheap is not always the way to go as cheap booster pedals can result in a harsh distorted sound. Consider a mid-priced or more expensive boutique booster pedals as made by boutique pedal makers have extra circuitry to shape the complete sound. include the Keeley D&M Drive Pedal, the Fulltone OCD Obsessive Compulsive Drive, the Blackstar HT Dual Booster Pedal, the sleek looking Danelectro Billion Dollar Boost and the Electro Harmonix Screaming Bird Pedal.
