    Someone asked me to record something with this three different pedals using them has a boost to "enhance" the sound of a clean amp.
    I thought it could help anyone searching for something like that so I'll share.

    The amp was a DRRI.
    The guitar was a 90's strat.
    I used a SM57 to mic the amp and added a little reverb and compression after to make the guitar sound fit better in the mix.

    Here's the clean amp:

    The Soul Food:

    Spark Boost (MID setting):

    KoT clone (yellow channel boost mode):

    Very interesting. I was about to pull the trigger on the soul food but after hearing the mid boost and bottom loss it changed my mind . the spark boost is much more my cup o tea.
    Thanks for that

    Thanks.
    Don't be put off on the Soul Food because of the rhythm part.
    It really sounds at its best with the amp a little more open and for lead lines.
    The mids just give the sound that kick.
    But overall I think the Spark sounds better.
    My second favorite drive, after the KoT.
