Combination power booster and buffer for your pedalboard.

The Radial BigShot PB1 provides 15dB of boost, accessed using a guitar pick via a rear-mounted recessed control that is protected from foot stomp damage.

Unlike class-B preamps found in most pedals that color the tone and give buffers a bad name, the BigShot PB1 features 100% discreet class-A circuit topology for the utmost in sound quality. Class-A circuits are preferred due to reduced zero cross distortion, improved phase response and the resulting smooth Bessel curve of evenly cascading harmonics. This is augmented with Drag control, a variable load correction circuit that lets you dial in the perfect impedance to match the original tone and feel of your guitar and amp combination.

With the PB1, noise is reduced while performance is augmented. Long cable runs are finally possible. And when you hit the boost, you get smooth clean control like you never though possible. The BigShot PB1 is likely the finest guitar power booster ever made.

Radial Engineering BigShot PB1 Class-A Power Booster Features:

  • Fully variable class-A power booster for solos
    Buffer drives multiple pedals and long cables
    Drag control load correction for natural tone
    Ultra linear performance for natural boost
    Compact and easy to use — great for pedalboards

  • Radial PB1 - the buffer you need, the boost you'll love

    As reviewed by Paul on 6/24/2011

    Radial is top shelf engineering, tone and quality. If you run a decent pedalboard or chain you need this pedal 1st in line. The buffer conditions and restores the organic, natural tone to your guitar removing the loading and cap loss that even the best of true bypass pedals can build. The boost is natural, transparent and useful for pushing the amp into a nice tonal Od or as I use mine to add a little above unity line drive to enhance my OD and gains or just give the guitar a little extra when you need it. Great box, superior engineering. Well worth the price.
