    A Few Of Our Favorite Guitar Boost Pedals
    While they often get mixed up or even lumped into one hybrid stompbox, a true boost pedal is different from an overdrive.

But that's not to say we don't appreciate when manufacturers add a few extras, as long as they don't get in the way of the pedal's true job! With that in mind, we'd like to share with you four fantastic boost pedals that get the job done and then some!     Continue reading →
