The TC Electronic Spark Booster guitar effects pedal works great as an always on type of effect, adding life, grit and compression to your sound in a way that oozes tone. Add body, punch and warmth to pickups and drive amps to peak performance. The Spark Booster also shines when used as a pure level boost. It’s the perfect tool to prime solos, highlight parts and add dimension to your amp or distortion pedal.
The level knob allows you to add 26 dB of boost, raising the volume without altering the character of your tone. The Gain knob is perfect for adding a hint of breakup or slight compression to a clean amp.
The active EQ controls consist of Bass and Treble knobs. They form the perfect tone-shaping tool and amplify frequency areas, as well as be used to create deep, extended lows or to add beautiful top-end sparkle.
A toggle switch allows for three settings. The Clean setting boosts your signal equally across the frequency spectrum. The Fat setting fattens up sounds and adds life and punch to your sound, and allows for precise tonal shaping with the EQ and Gain knobs. The Mid-boost section provides a bump in the mids.
It’s the fourth entry for Overdrive/Distortion pedals in the TC Electronic compact pedal series. Based on the runaway success of the classic-sounding Dark Matter Distortion, the more modern voiced Röttweiler Distortion and the MojoMojo Overdrive.
