What up guys,
Thought I’d turn the boost circuit I’d been playing with into a proper pedal.
Hence the Power Boost is born 😀
Not my neatest wiring, but hey, prototypes aren’t pretty!
Uses same boost circuit as in the video:
In the video I mention the intention was to get a clean boost that adds that special sparkle of a MOSFET gain stage.
I also mention that it can get “dirty and grimy” – what I meant to say is that it can get slightly overdriven.
The way in which a MOSFET overdrives is very far from “dirty and grimy”!
The pedal version activates each of the 2 gain stages separately, so it can either be 2 clean boosts or turning both on you can dial in some overdrive.
This thing can get loud 😀
Just realised the graphic I drew looks similar to the ZVex logo. This was completely unintentional. I can only assume it was pure chance or it was stuck in my subconscious when I was doing the design.
