I was looking around a local guitar shop and trying out a bunch of distortion / boost pedals. I ended up taking something home (this rarely happens) I just liked the sound a lot. It's called "ego boost" by some folks out of Washington called Smart People Factory (www.smartpeoplefactory.com
) It's a lot less over the top than my Boss OD-2R Turbo Overdrive. It's not something I's use for heavy metal but if I put my guitar through it to my Vox AD50VT modelling a tweed 4x10, it sounds awesome. It's really simple, stomp on/off, boost, and a no-load tone pot (all the way left is off. Once it clicks, it's off the circuit). No volume pot, so if I want to keep the same level with distortion I have to use the volume on my guitar or a volume pedal.
Has anyone else heard this? If so, what are your impressions?
I'm not affiliated, just happy with the product and wanted to share my experience.
