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.
