I bought this to check out because it was cheap some time ago. After trying it I was practically willing to give it away it was too harsh sounding. It sat in it's box then one day I was messing around and found a mod on the internet to change two caps inside, very simple. Wow what a difference now I have a very usable treble booster! Try it you'll like it. It went from a $40 unusable pedal to an indispensable pedal! Don't waste you money on an expensive treble booster, get this do the mod and you'll be happy you did! I use it alot for rhythmic palm muting to boost the signal to cut through the mix,also good to boost a lead.
I got this pedal yesterday and it sure does what its supposed to which is boost your treble. It is good and i like it so it is a great deal saver i looked in another guitar store for the same thing and it was 61.99. So this is definitely a great deal so if you have the $$ buy it.
Recently I purchased a VOX AC30 and was looking for a treble boost pedal to provide a little more aggressive tone during leads and heavier rhythms sections. After watching a few demos of this pedal, I was impressed with the boost that it provided unfortunately I could not find a demo of this unit used on an VOX AC30. Most of the demos I saw on line were on higher gain amps and the pedal really seemed to respond well. Being that the price was very reasonable, I figured this would be a good 1st step towards the tone I was looking for. The pedal did exactly what the name says it would do but unfortunately on an AC30 it removed any evidence of mid and low end that is produced by the amplifier. This particular pedal did not accomplish what I was looking for and I ended up getting much closer to my goal by using an MXR Micro Amp and a Tube Screamer set to a clean boost setting. Again, the Screaming Bird worked very well with the higher gain amp demos I saw on line. I have seen some modifications done to this pedal that adds in midrange but I was very satisfied with the MXR and Tube Screamer combination. I would not hesitate to try this pedal out on a higher gain amp but unfortunately it did not provide the tone I was looking for with my equipment.
Many people hate this pedal for its cutting of the bass on most amps, I personally am looking for a more higher sounding less bass filled tone so this works perfectly for me. Definitely adds treble to your tone, works with SS and Tube amps...an acquired taste however....just need to find that sweet spot on the amp and pedal to get that tone your after. If you want something thats boosts treble and high mids then this pedal is for you. Experimentation is one of the funnest parts of playing guitar, try it out and see what kind of sounds you get!
I bought this on a whim, just something to toy around with, but now I'll never leave home without it. Adds awesome treble to all tones coming out of your rig, and lets you hide in rhythm and scream into lead with one switch. The adjustment knob offers a good range of boost, allowing a subtle kick to a regular afterburn of highs. GREAT to use to get rid of "muddiness" associated with some effects and distortions. Can't beat it for the price, plus EHX quality.
