This is a great pedal to overdrive your amp with. I only use tube amps and this pedal works wonders! It will overdrive the preamp to get that great old cranked sound! It will even take it into a complete distortion if you put the level all the up...

....i was looking for a clean boost pedal to add a little clean headroom to my low watt tube head...this unit did not work for me....the tone and boost it added was very "dirty"...i wanted a pedal to stay clean and sparkly only a little louder for solos when activated....i returned this pedal, and have since purchased a Mod-tone Mini-mod Clean Boost, which so far is doing what i was looking for.

        Great value for the price

        By 

        from Richmond, VA

        Comments about Electro-Harmonix Nano LPB-1 Power Booster Guitar Effects Pedal:

        In beginning my search for a boost pedal, I was hoping to find one for under $100. This bad boy showed up. I already use a number of EHX pedals and love them. Once it came in the mail I gave it a go using an American Tele, and it was fantastic. The boost was clean and gave a great punch when needed, without sacraficing tone. It's easy to use and doesn't block up your board. I can't speak intelligently on its quality at really high levels, because I don't use it to its max capability, just don't need to. I've only had it a few weeks, but so far definitely suggest it if you need boost on a budget!

        Comments about Electro-Harmonix Nano LPB-1 Power Booster Guitar Effects Pedal:

        this is a pretty good little pedal, however on its own it may lack certain qualities but when you use it for boosting an overdrive pedal you can improve your tone ten fold , when i first got this pedal i was disapointed until i realizeed that i had to put it after my bad monkey and turn down the monkies level and gain and tweak the E.Q to compensate for both pedals

        Great Bang for the Buck!!!

        Comments about Electro-Harmonix Nano LPB-1 Power Booster Guitar Effects Pedal:

        Have had this pedal on the board for approx 3 months now and love it! I run it right behind a Fulltone Plim Soul and then into an Orange Rocker 30 combo. Not only was it the boost I was looking for, it completely filled out the overdrive tones either on the Plim or only running the Dirty channel on the Orange. The best word I can come up with is SATURATION! I recommend with no hesitation! And the price... GET TWO!

        This is a great product if you already like your existing effects but just need a little boost in volume here and there to give more depth to a song. Highly recommend, just what I needed.

        Does What It Is Designed To Do

        By 

        from Corona, CA

        Comments about Electro-Harmonix Nano LPB-1 Power Booster Guitar Effects Pedal:

        The EH LPB-1 does exactly what it is supposed to do. I used the original in the early '70s, and this latest version performs the same. It has earned a spot on many top guitarist pedal boards, and has been relied on for decades. One knob simple. Very affordable for the quality that is delivered. The EH LPB-1 is more versatile than you would expect. Build quality is top notch - as are all EH boxes.

        One gain knob and a true bypass switch. Perfectly clean boost pedal with virtually no noise and a good amount of gain behind it. Solid construction too makes this pedal a steal..

        First pedal i ever bought

        By 

        from STL MO

        Comments about Electro-Harmonix Nano LPB-1 Power Booster Guitar Effects Pedal:

        I decided upon the LPB-1 because it's cheap and basic. I played it on an obscure delta-tone bass model through a fender bassman 150 amp, and peavy 15 watt practice compo (obviously sounded much better on the bassman). I found that i did need to adjust my tone a bit on the songs i planned on using it on before playing. Usually keeping at about 12-1 O'clock for some originals with more dominant bass parts. Wasn't amazing, but it does a good job. Very durable, and you can be very rough with it.

        Great Pedal

        By 

        from Jacksonville, Florida

        Comments about Electro-Harmonix Nano LPB-1 Power Booster Guitar Effects Pedal:

        This pedal, by itself, is a pure boost with some added low-end gain. When paired with an overdrive or distortion at approximately unity gain, though, this one brings out the best in the other one. It only minutely colors the tone in this set-up, but the sound quality as a whole is better. It is the "secret sauce" in my pedalboard, and gets used mainly when I take a solo and want to stand out a little bit more, and be louder. When dimed, this one goes to "11". My only beef is that occasionally, the jacks do not hold on to the cable properly and the sound cuts out, but that is just a quick fix.
