  • Analogue
  • Boost
  • A “boost” pedal, also known as a “clean boost,” is a type of guitar effects pedal designed to increase the volume of the guitar signal without adding significant distortion or coloration to the tone. Boost pedals are used to amplify the signal level, allowing guitarists to achieve higher volume levels or to push their amplifier into overdrive for increased saturation and sustain.

    Boost pedals typically feature a simple interface with controls for adjusting the level of boost, often represented by a single knob or a toggle switch. When engaged, the boost pedal increases the gain of the signal passing through it, effectively amplifying the sound. Unlike overdrive or distortion pedals, which introduce clipping and saturation to the signal, boost pedals aim to provide a clean and transparent volume increase.

    Boost pedals are versatile tools that can serve various purposes in a guitarist’s rig:

    1. **Volume Boost**: Boost pedals can be used to increase the volume of the guitar signal, allowing players to stand out during solos or to compensate for differences in volume between guitars or pickup settings.

    2. **Overdrive Stacking**: Boost pedals are commonly used to push the front end of an overdrive or distortion pedal, resulting in increased saturation and sustain. By placing the boost pedal before a drive pedal in the signal chain, guitarists can achieve higher levels of gain and distortion without sacrificing clarity or dynamics.

    3. **Amp Pushing**: Boost pedals can also be used to drive the input stage of a tube amplifier harder, causing the amp to naturally overdrive and produce a more saturated and harmonically rich tone. This is particularly useful for guitarists seeking to achieve classic tube amp breakup at lower volume levels.

    4. **Tone Shaping**: Some boost pedals feature EQ controls or tone shaping options, allowing guitarists to tailor the frequency response of their signal. These pedals can be used to boost specific frequencies or to shape the overall tonal characteristics of the guitar sound.

    Overall, boost pedals are essential tools for guitarists looking to enhance their tone, increase volume levels, or drive their amplifier into overdrive for added saturation and sustain. Whether used as a standalone effect or in combination with other pedals, boost pedals offer versatility and flexibility in shaping the guitar sound.

  • Chorus
  • A “chorus” pedal is a type of modulation effect used in guitar and bass playing to create a rich, swirling sound that simulates the effect of multiple instruments playing the same part simultaneously. Chorus pedals are popular for adding depth, warmth, and movement to the guitar tone, and they are widely used across various music genres, from rock and pop to jazz and ambient.

    Chorus pedals work by splitting the guitar signal into two identical paths. One path remains unaffected, while the other path is slightly delayed and modulated in pitch. The modulated signal is then mixed back with the original signal, creating the characteristic “shimmering” effect associated with chorus.

    Key features of chorus pedals include:

    1. **Rate**: This controls the speed at which the modulated signal’s pitch fluctuates, determining how quickly the chorus effect cycles.

    2. **Depth**: Also known as intensity or mix, this adjusts the amount of modulation applied to the delayed signal. Higher depth settings produce a more pronounced and noticeable chorus effect.

    3. **Delay Time**: Some chorus pedals allow you to adjust the delay time, which affects the perceived width and depth of the chorus effect. Longer delay times create a more spacious and immersive sound.

    4. **Tone or EQ**: Many chorus pedals include tone or EQ controls to shape the frequency response of the chorus effect. These controls allow you to tailor the tone of the chorus to suit your preferences or match the characteristics of your guitar and amplifier.

    Chorus pedals can be used in various ways to enhance your playing:

    – **Thickening**: Adding a subtle chorus effect to your guitar tone can thicken it, making it sound fuller and more expansive. This is particularly useful for filling out the sound in a band mix or creating a lush, layered texture in ambient music.

    – **Clean Tones**: Chorus pedals are often used with clean or lightly overdriven guitar tones to add sparkle and dimension. They can impart a sense of movement and depth to simple chord progressions or arpeggios, making them sound more dynamic and expressive.

    – **Lead Tones**: When applied to lead guitar lines or solos, chorus pedals can add a touch of modulation that helps the notes stand out and sound more vibrant. This can be especially effective for achieving a “shimmering” quality in melodic passages.

    Overall, chorus pedals are versatile tools that can add depth, warmth, and character to your guitar tone. Whether you’re aiming for subtle enhancement or bold modulation effects, a chorus pedal can be a valuable addition to your pedalboard.
