....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.

Couldn't be simpler!

By napper29

from Atlanta, GA

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

This pedal is great! One knob and very responsive. I put it before my distortion pedal and stomp it on for leads. It doesn't alter my tone and I only have to set it at about 9 o'clock to get a significant volume boost. I tried placing it after distortion and there's no volume difference, just more distortion. But it's simple, cheap, and does exactly what it says.

First pedal i ever bought

By Parks

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.

LPB-1

By Ed

from Rochester, NY

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

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..

Does What It Is Designed To Do

By Frank

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.

Great Bang for the Buck!!!

By Matt L

from Lincoln, NE

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!

if your amp doesn't provide enough crunch...

By nick

from IL

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

so yea i use a 50 watt all-tube combo amp, which is a great amp, but the distorted channel is sometimes too light on gain for whenever i want to play heavy metal. this pedal gives me the boost i need for a heavier sound and with the press of a button, i can switch back to a lighter distortion. it's real simple, and the tone is amazing.

TONE TWEAKERS

By GHOST

from los angeles, ca

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

You have spent hours turning knobs on the amp, and your guitar, and your pedals. All you need now is something to boost up the tone you created and not mess with it. This pedal is it! It will not mess with the tone you have, it will just boost it up, don't matter what style of music you play. I have the LPB-1 sandwiched between my distortion and reverb pedal, reverb first. I really like that it has one knob, BOOST. cause that's what it does.

Amazing

By Chato

from Vista, CA

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

I just bought this pedal yesterday and came home late so i couldn't try it out very well at my lower volumes, but even at volumes so low it still gave me a volume boost and it fattened up my tone. This thing can take a tube amp from strattling the line between clean and driven and just push it into overdrive. Very cheap pedal to buy but it seems like it can dish it out better than the more expensive ones.

LPB-1 Wow!

By UncleD

from M.V., Ca.

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

It does just what you would expect; boosts power and as an added bonus gives you more dynamic response out of your amp. I tried it with my Fender Pro Jr., Custom Vibrolux and a Marshall JCM2000-DSL50. It gave all of them a tone richer amp coloration. It's now a permanent front-end on my pedal board.

just boost

By GHOST

from los angeles, ca

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

this pedal saved me. i spent much time getting the tone for my set up just right and this pedal, when used before my distortion pedal, simply boost's up what i already have dialed in with out adding or taking anything away. perfect for leads and solos. buy it!

A Great Building Block

By Hendrix

from Tampa, Florida

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

I play, among other things, a Les Paul through a Marshall (big surprise!) 10-watt solid-state, and the tone is what you would expect: great, except for the fact that the amp is a solid-state. I plugged this pedal in, and it BOOSTED the hell out of my volume. I noticed, though, that as I turned up the knob, the pedal colored my tone ever so slightly, giving it extra low-end resonance and gain without murdering the highs or mids. When I started cascading it with other pedals, like the MXR distortion+, a beautiful, singing, sweet sound came out of my Les Paul's neck pickup, like if Stevie Ray Vaughan played a Gibson. I switched to the bridge pickup, and this raunchy, fat tone came ripping right out of the speakers. I had the dist+ first, followed by the LPB-1. To sum up, the LPB-1 alone is good, and after an overdrive or distortion it is great!

Great Pedal

By Hendrix

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.

A great pedal

By jesse mckeever

from indy

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

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

I should have spent more; you get what you pay for. Worked for about 2 months then started humming. The 1/4 in plug on the left side was loose to start with and now will not stay in all the way. Pretty much useless now.

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

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.
