Seymour Duncan Pickup Booster 25dB Boost Pedal
In Stock!

Give Your Pups a Hi-Def Boost!

Add some muscle to your guitar's tone with the newly reissued Seymour Duncan Pickup Booster pedal! More than a simple boost pedal, the Pickup Booster not only allows you to boost your guitar's signal without changing its tone, you can also flip a switch to gain access to a plethora of pickup tones. Do you want your single-coil pickups to sound like vintage humbuckers? Or high-output humbuckers? The newly reissued Pickup Booster can do both. This pedal is extremely transparent - in fact, Seymour Duncan claims that you can set its gain at 0dB, run a long cable, and your signal will stay clean. At Sweetwater, we were all fans of the original Seymour Duncan SFX-01 Pickup Booster pedal and are stoked to have it back!

Seymour Duncan Pickup Booster Pedal at a Glance:
  • Optimizes gain and resonance for a fat, muscular sound
  • Resonance switch delivers a plethora of pickup tones
  • Why choose Seymour Duncan?
Optimizes gain and resonance for a fat, muscular sound

By rotating the Seymour Duncan Pickup Booster pedal's Gain control knob you can add pure, flat-EQ gain to your guitar's signal, ranging from 0dB to 25dB. The Pickup Booster's Resonance switch drops the resonant peak of a single-coil pickup up to 5KHz, making a single-coil sound like a full and fat humbucker. Just like the original SFX-01, the Pickup Booster features fully discrete Class A circuitry along with true bypass.

Resonance switch delivers a plethora of pickup tones

The Seymour Duncan Pickup Booster pedal is much more than a one-trick pony. You can set the Gain at 0dB and the Resonance at "0" for a transparent boost. You can set the Gain at 12 o'clock and the Resonance at "1" to shift the resonant peak of a single-coil down, thickening up your tone. You can set the Gain at maximum and the Resonance at "2" to give a single-coil the fatness of a high-output humbucker. You can crank the Gain and set the Resonance switch at "0" to give a humbucker maximum saturation and sustain. By the way, for the Resonance switch to work properly, the Pickup Booster must be first in your guitar's signal chain using passive pickups and a standard guitar cable - not a wireless unit.

Why choose Seymour Duncan?

Quite simply, it boils down to tone. Seymour Duncan has spent the majority of his life refining the art of creating pickups. Seymour Duncan is dedicated to getting the best tone possible from his pickups, from modern metal monsters to faithful reproductions of gems from the '50s and '60s. We know tone is important to you which is why we choose to carry Seymour Duncan pickups. With the massive amount of pickups available from Seymour Duncan, you're certain to find the sound you've been looking for.

Seymour Duncan Pickup Booster Pedal Features:
  • Optimizes gain and resonance for a fat, muscular sound
  • Resonance switch makes single-coils sound like vintage or high-output humbuckers
  • Class A circuitry along with true bypass design for transparent, noise-free operation
Add some muscle to your guitar tone with the Seymour Duncan Pickup Booster pedal!

Buy this Pedal RIGHT NOW!

I am amazed with this pedal. I was excited after opening the box on Christmas, knowing it'd be excellent being a Seymour Duncan product, but was somehow surprised all the same. Works great as a solo boost, or even a boost to stay on all the time, but its secret weapon is the resonance switch. It allows certain frequencies to sustain, allowing for amazing sustain and harmonic feedback, while simultaneously fattening up your tone. To put it in a nutshell: BUY IT NOW! :)

Pickup Booster Pedal

A really good pedal to add to your rig! Instructions suggest placing this pedal (designed for noiseless coil pickups and all humbuckers) in the beginning of the chain of your rig. I don't keep it in the beginning of my chain and still manage to be able to get a strong pickup gain. I use an 18v adapter rather than a 9v adapter for more head room. You can step on the pedal switch to boost your pickup for such things as solos to stand out or leave it on all the time to add constant "pow" to your sound.

Seymour Duncan Booster Pedal

Perfect. This does exactly what they said it would. Switching from my 335 to my Strat during a gig is a breeze. No volume difference, fat tone. Buy one. Simple as that.
