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
  • Prime-Time - seamlessly toggle between latching and momentary modes
  • Place after existing distortion/overdrive to enhance drive sounds
  • Add grit, life and compression to your tone
  • Add body, punch and warmth to pickups
  • True bypass
  • DC adapter sold separately

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.

        Comments about TC Electronic Spark Mini Booster Guitar Effects Pedal:

        I'm in love with this pedal. I've put it after my wah so it's pushing everything that comes later in the chain. It boosts up to 20dB and I've set it to about 1 o'clock so I still have plenty of room left. I love how it sounds when boosting my Fender Blues Jr by itself. It's warm and crunchy. The East River Drive (EHX) also sounds amazing with it. If you press and hold the footswitch it will only boost for as long as you hold it down.

          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.

          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.

            Clean, clear, plenty of boost. I love the feature to just step and hold for a fill, or push on for a solo. Excellent boost pedal.

            Okay. I have two of these things and I use them in all sorts of configuartions... Want to push the front end of a compressing amp or pedal for killer sustain and tightness? Done! Want to boost the volume after the preamp section? Done! I own dozens of pedals and this little guy gets used more than most. Absolutely love the thing.
