Clean Boost Uses for Guitar
Q: I don’t understand what a clean boost pedal is used for with a guitar. Why not just turn the amp up?
A: A clean boost can be used for a variety of things that turning an amp up won’t accomplish:
- Make a clean guitar louder for solos.
- Push a clean amp into slight distortion.
- Push a slightly distorted amp into heavier distortion.
- Before an overdrive pedal, push the overdrive into heavier distortion.
- After an overdrive pedal, make the overdrive sound louder.
