Boost, EQ and Preamp
Sometimes the subtle effects are the ones with the greatest impact on your playing. That’s where Boosters, EQs and pre-amps come in. All of these are designed to shape your core tone in a myriad of ways.
A lot of people think they need a compressor, when what they’re really after is a nice booster or pre-amp to add a bit of punch and color to glue their sound together. Boosters and pre-amps are also great for adding a second gain stage to your rig, or for adding a bit of warmth to cold digital delays. There’s also no need to fight for your place in the mix with volume, when a good EQ will carve out the perfect sonic space for you to sit in without making your ears bleed. So embrace the sonic subtleties and take control of your tone.
