You love your amp, but when you jump on a lead, you just need a little more of it. There's more to tasty boosting than just brute force though. The TC Electronics Spark Mini Boost gives you a vicious 20 dB of boost and then some.

Tone To The Bone
With a full 20 dB of boost, Spark Mini Booster is a great clean booster. But that's not all it does - keep turning that knob and it'll start working its magic driving gear into peak performance! No matter what your style or set-up is, this musical miracle will maximize your potential but let your core tone shine through unaltered.

Are You Ready For PrimeTime
PrimeTime is a radical new feature that will excite guitarists around the globe. Basically, Spark Mini Booster instantly understands whether you want the pedal to be permanently on when you hit the footswitch, or just for as long as you hold the footswitch down. Which totally rocks for both 'always-on' and 'emphasizing passages' situations.

Discrete Is The New Pronounced
By adding a discrete, fully analog circuit, Spark Mini Booster adds a purely magical sense of life and excitement to your gear and tone. Each part of the circuit is carefully selected, from transistor to capacitor and from resistor to diode. What does that mean? Sweet, pure tone in all of its glory in an unparalleled clarity with zero coloration. Whether you want to make things sing or roar, this circuit ensures to maximize your tone.

Features
  • 20 dB of boost
  • Level knob - boost levels or drive amps to peak performance

  • Place after existing distortion/overdrive to enhance drive sounds
  • Add grit, life and compression to your tone

    Comments about TC Electronic Spark Mini Booster Guitar Effects Pedal:

    This mini-pedal fit the bill for me perfectly. I needed a compact boost pedal that sounds great and is affordable. Build quality seems to be great, the dual-mode footswitch is a nice plus, the size fits easily onto my pedalboard, and the sound was just what I was looking for.

    Comments about TC Electronic Spark Mini Booster Guitar Effects Pedal:

    Very transparent, doesn't affect tone at all. Does what it does, clean boost. Period. Only thing I could have wanted was a power supply, since it has no battery. Had a hard time locating one. But got one, & really like the unit.

      Comments about TC Electronic Spark Mini Booster Guitar Effects Pedal:

      This pedal lives up to its claim. It is compact with the perfect amount of boost. I put this at the end on my effects loop just before the amp return. I set this at about 20% & get an even boost no matter what channel or effects I have in use.

          Comments about TC Electronic Spark Mini Booster Guitar Effects Pedal:

          Great little booster pedal. I use it before my drive pedals to get a slight gain/volume boost for solos and lead parts. It seemed a little too bright when used after overdrive while using a bridge pickup, but it sounds great how I'm using it now. Some boosters roll off a little high end to help smooth out treble frequencies at higher volume, but that doesn't seem to be the case with this one (which can be good or bad depending on what you're looking for).

          I also really like the PrimeTime switching option. It's great for short parts that only need to stick out of a mix for a couple seconds. And there's a ton of boost available from this little guy. Plenty of room for small volume/gan boosts here and there, but able to push a tube amp pretty hard as well. And you can't beat the size!

          Comments about TC Electronic Spark Mini Booster Guitar Effects Pedal:

          This boost has so many uses. Add this before your gain section for a clean boost that tightens up your gain for a phenomenal sound. Add after your gain section to raise the volume for leads that cut right through the mix. Ive used this thing to push pedals and tubes alike with awesome results.

            I have 2 of these. One on each of my boards. It is the best clean boost I have ever used. Mine are always on and add that extra punch to the bottom end. It is the one pedal I can not be without.

            Spark Mini - Love at first listen

            By JOHN

            from Yorba Linda, CA

            Comments about TC Electronic Spark Mini Booster Guitar Effects Pedal:

            Got to say I love this little pedal. Still experimenting with best placement on my pedalboard, but right now it is after my drive and compressor and before my echo and reverb. Chain is as follows - Mojomojo-Philosopher King-SPARK MINI-Alter Ego-Trinity 2-splitter- Ditto Looper-to two amps, a Fender Ramparte and a Fender Blues Jr. The looper is only on the Jr. This pedal boosts but has a very transparent sparkle, that I cannot describe as brighter or anything like that, but a certain subtle crunchy things seem to rise out of the sound. It may just be that my tube amps like the signal level better, but I tried getting the same volume level with different combinations of pushing volume from other areas and it wasn't quite the same. Its like the difference between a really good model of an amp and a real tube amp. The tube just has a depth and sparkle, this little pedal adds more of that into the sound.

            Serious boost & enhanced tone

            By Ryan

            from Amity, OR

            Comments about TC Electronic Spark Mini Booster Guitar Effects Pedal:

            This little pedal is amazing! Put it in front of a nice tube amp with or without gain. It gives you that boost to cut through and actually provides a tonal improvement--especially for leads with some decent gain. Without gain, it takes a nice clean channel and turns it into a little wing sounding clean/crunch. Very impressed!

            EXCELENTE BOOSTER PEEEEEROOOOO

            By FELIPE

            from Houston Texas

            Comments about TC Electronic Spark Mini Booster Guitar Effects Pedal:

            Antes que nada quiero decir que este es mi tercer booster, primero tuve el boosta Grande de la BBE; excelente pedal lo recomiendo mucho, no colorea el tono y el footswitch no hace ruido al presionarlo, luego tuve el EP Booster (supuestamente para mejorar mi equipo) gran decepci?n, colorea horrible el tono, dif?cil de controlar el nivel de ganancia una verdadera l?stima. Finalmente lo vend? y me compre el Spark Mini Booster, debo confesar que no me esperaba tanto, transparente sin ser chillante, el pedal le das toda la ganancia y la guitarra solo se vuelve m?s fuerte m?s no chillante...... luego la opci?n de encendido temporal es una genialidad.... definitivamente se van duelo f?cil con el Boosta Grande, Lo ?nico que no me gusta es que cuando se enciende o apaga hay un pop que al estar tocando no se nota si hay drive o distorci?n, pero si se est? trabajando en clean si se nota. Creo que al final si vale la pena esa peque?a molestia por la calidad del booster y las prestaciones que da.-
