Give Your Rig a Boost!

More than just a one-trick pony boost pedal, the TC Electronic Spark Booster is a flexible, feature-laden boost pedal that is ready to rock. Many boost pedals feature a volume knob only, not the Spark Booster. You get powerful tone-sculpting controls that let you create your perfect sound. A boost characteristic switch changes the pedal from a clean, transparent boost to a mid-boosted punch to cut through any mix. With 26db of gain you'll be able to drive any amp into sonic bliss. Call Sweetwater and add serious punch and boost to your rig with the TC Electronic Spark Booster.

TC Electronic Spark Booster Boost Pedal at a Glance:
  • Flexible boost options
  • 2-band EQ lets you contour your tone to perfection
  • True bypass circuitry protects your tone
Flexible boost options

TC Electronic's Spark Booster isn't another one-knob boost pedal, it features gain, level, and a 3-way boost characteristics switch. The gain knob will let you add a little grit to your sound, while the level knob drives your amp and can add up to 26db of boost. Spark Booster's switch has three settings: clean, fat, and mid. Clean gives your signal a clean boost, fat adds girth to your single-coil sounds, and the mid setting punches through the mix with a snarl.

2-band EQ lets you contour your tone to perfection

Unlike most boost pedals on the market, TC Electronic's Spark Booster features a 2-band EQ. These active controls work independently of each other like a graphic EQ. This gives you precise control of each band so you can dial in that perfect tone. When the EQ knobs are set to noon they are completely transparent and will not affect your signal.

True bypass circuitry protects your tone

It may not seem like a big deal, but the Spark Booster's true bypass circuitry plays a major role in preserving your tone when it's not in use, especially if you have an elaborate pedalboard setup. You see, when not in use, the Spark Booster's true bypass design takes it completely out of your signal chain. That means your signal doesn't run through the entire pedal's circuitry, which can effectively add yards of passive "cable length" to your system - a recipe for adding noise to your sound. Thanks to the TC Electronic Spark Booster's true bypass switching, your signal stays pure and your tone remains free from unnecessary noise.

TC Electronic Spark Booster Boost Pedal Features:
  • Give your guitar up to a 26db boost
  • 2-band EQ to dial in your perfect tone
  • Gain and level controls for everything from clean to dirty boosts
  • 3-way toggle for different boost characteristics
  • True-bypass switching
Spark your tonal creativity with the TC Electronic Spark Booster pedal!

Smooth as Butter

I used this as just a clean boost after my OD on the mid setting to give my rig a little solo boost. But after I tried putting the Spark into Fat mode and diming the gain, it knocked my other OD off my board without a second thought. Even through my Crush SS amp, this thing sings! There is just enough gain for me, not over the top, but a nice thick rock crunch sound. The active EQ knobs are great for adding some bottom end to a chimey single coil guitars or dialing in a slight treble hump to meaty humbuckers. This is by far my favorite pedal on my board right now for it's versatility, never mind the sound quality that makes my SS roar like a good tube amp and the build quality that would make a bomb shelter jealous. I have a few different TC pedals on my board and I'm always very impressed with their products, but they really knocked it out of the park with this one. I love it and I wouldn't hesitate to get another in a heartbeat if something happened to mine.

Love it

Love the Spark Booster. Works equally well as a mild volume bumper or as a kick up for solos (making use of the gain knob for that extra grig). Might grab another.

Boost it baby!

This pedal does everything that it says it does! it boost my solos, and boosts my melodies. and anything else that i want to stand out from the mix. i play metal music in a cramp basement and my drummer crashes so loud and between the monitors and other guitars i need a hot knife to cut through some hot METAL butter. i love this pedal: great build, cool looks, durable, and solid. I've seen a lot of complaints about the WHITE indicator light BUT i really like it! its different and very bright, not a problem with it! I'm very excited that the spark booster is around its exactly what i needed on my board. its a must. buy it, love it, GO!

This is a great tool

I got this as a promotion by buying 2 other pedals - the Mojomojo and the Corona Chorus. (I also have the Flashback x4). I was quite pleased with the other pedals, and use them in series with my Boss ME-70, and then this arrived. I was not expecting much, based on what I had read. So I was really impressed when I plugged this in my pedalboard (I put it in after the other TC pedals and just before the ME-70.) This adds a wonderful crisp, crunchy, but not muddy overdrive to my Strat and Tele that is just delicious. It works so well, that on those 2 guitars I tend to leave it on most of the time. I also use it on my Gibson ES 137, but those humbuckers get muddy with too much OD and so I turn it way down. I power this with a One Spot and also used a battery. I found the battery worked well but made no difference in noise level and so have left it out. This pedal is typical of all gain devices in that it does create noise. (Just like the compression and overdrive on other pedals - no more and no less.) It is worth it however. I really like it.

Love this pedal and how Tore says "Spark Booster"

With a good distortion tone this thing will boost it better and make it versatile. The Fat/Clean/Mid switch is magic. Besides not deminshing my tone... I can tweak the bass and treble, add some grit, and boost or compress the tone by rasing or lowering the volume on the pedal. For these reasons I have two of these white beauties. One pedal for compressed mids and one pedal for a over-the-top fat heavy sound.
