Simple but effective

I own the full size spark as well. I found I was only using the clean boost setting on the full spark so I bought this to save some space on my pedal board. I also have owned MXR Micro amp and Micro amp custom, as far as transparency I think the spark mini wins. It does exactly what it's designed to do which is give you more of whatever you have. I tried it in front of the amp and as a lead boost in the fx loop. You really have to go conservative in the loop with the gain... It gets LOUD real fast. In front of the amp is where I use and it give me a bit more drive and sustain but not in your face where I set it at the 9:00 position of the gain knob. On a clean amp setting it adds pretty much makes you louder and does not effect your tone unless there are effects involved......Then it matters which order the spark is in regard to the effects. I think the price for this unit is exactly where it should be and this is a nice addition to any rig.

Great Boost!

This is a great little pedal. Clean and powerful. I've used it on both sides of my preamp signal chain. I'll probably wind up getting another one to have both ends covered for drive and lead level boost.

So simple, so useful

Despite the Spark Mini's simplicity, which remains true to TC Electronics' core values, it is useful in so many ways! The momentary switch that you can hold down for more than a second to play accentuated licks is a brilliant feature, for one. Also, I am a strat guy, so I love running mine on all the time to give the mids a little extra punch and to get my amp right at the magic break up point. I actually plan to purchase a second one to put on my board just for a volume boost in solos. So in summary, buy two of these, haha: one to boost your single coils' tone a bit and make your dirt pedals even grittier and another to kick on for solos for that volume bump you need to get over your heavy handed drummer. You won't regret it, promise!

Super Pedal...One Knob?

This pedal is great in so many ways. The first is that it looks great! Next is that within a one knob, one switch pedal, there are tricks. A momentary switch lies within so you can hop in and out of a solo/lead quickly and the +20db boost is nothing to play around with! Follow TC on Facebook and join their group. Many TC staff are in there and always able to give tips, tricks, and advice. For instance, this pedal is like it's older brother but with the gain around 9 o'clock giving you a nice clean boost with just enough grit. Check it out!

Nice clean boost

This is great for a crystal clean sound. Eg... Use it on the clean intro to tune like " Pull me under" by Dream Theater and it really shines through. Would not rec on distorted or gain sound. For a one dial pedal it sounds great. Anything I have ever bought from TC is of highest quality and tone. The switch is very soft. Actually in a small recording room I like this because in those soft clear sections of recording the room mic won't pick up the little click to turn it on and off. The graphics are neat too.
