About Boost Driver Guitar Pedals

A boost pedal or driver pedal the simplest of all gain-based guitar pedals, boosters do exactly what they say. 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. Popular booster pedals include the Boss DN-2 Dyna Drive Pedal, the Caline Purple Smoke Boost, the Empress Effects Multi-Drive, the Hydra Boost by Carl Martin, JHS Prestige Booster Pedal and the JHS Milkman Echo Boost.
