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.

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.

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!

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.

      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!

        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.

          This pedal is a must for lead guitar players. It's perfect for boosting your volume for solos or punching in for a lick to stand out during the song. It works best ran through the effects loop of the amp. Very small and does not take up much room on pedal board.

              Works well to boost other pedals, but I have another pedal that does a little better job. What I do with it is use it after all my drive pedals as a "make louder" button. Perfect for solos when you just need a volume lift.

                Comments about TC Electronic Spark Mini Booster Guitar Effects Pedal:

                The TC Electronics Spark Mini is a great pedal that not only has a small footprint, but does it's job extremely well. I would definitely recommend this pedal or at the very least recommend you to try it out. My overall tone was lacking something and would sometimes get lost in the mix. After giving this a try, it is safe to say that this will be a permanent addition to my pedal board. In my signal chain, this sits right before my overdrive pedals, and you can feel and tell the difference that this makes. With a clean signal and the Spark Mini turned on to a low setting, my tone has a warmth and body to it that makes it sound full. When turning on my overdrive, the boost the Spark mini helps drive my sound better than just turning up my volume alone. The pedal feels very sturdy and well made. If you are going to buy this as a stand alone pedal, please note that it doesn't run on batteries, so you will need to use a power source. Other than the boost knob and stomp button, the only other notable feature is the ability to step on and hold the stomp button to activate it. While holding it down, the Spark Mini will be active. Once you let go of the stomp button, the pedal will turn back off. This is handy if you only want to use this as a boost at certain times. For me, i'm going to leave it on the entire time so that I can send an stronger signal down my pedal chain and to my sound guy.

                Very pleased with this little pedal. Has much more boost capability than I even need, and sounds awesome.
