Awesome sweet-spot creator
I originally bought this pedal for its low-volume feedback capability, but found it especially awesome at creating a super sweet tone in the mid-range. I use EMG-8X pickups on a Jackson Soloist, which already sound really good. By parking the "boost level" at around 10:00, "feedback" at around 11:00, "tone" at "12:00" and "character" cranked all the way to the right, I get not only feedback when I want (which is less often than I thought it would be), and especially a really "sweet" tone that comes to the front without stepping on other frequencies in the house mix. In fact, I used it as the overdrive mechanism, where the patch I chose on the Axe-Fx2 was not overdriven, and I let the Feedbacker/Booster pedal drive it to produce overdrive the frequencies it was boosting only. The result was a really nice, sweet overdrive that also allowed beautiful clarity to come through on the low strings/notes and just a nice slight shimmer on the high strings/notes because the overdrive was happening all in the frequencies the "Character" knob was boosting. This pedal is like the secret sauce from that perspective. With the Ax-Fx2 I don't use outboard gear normally, but this will stay in front of it from now on for live work.
