This boost is great as a first pedal. It makes all other pedals and amps sound 10 x better. Very clear and loud boosting. Treble, Bass controls, as well as Gain and Volume. This is the big brother of the Magic Boost. In a heavy metal enclosure, true bypass switching, and a bright violet LED (Any color available). If you only get one pedal from DreamTone this is the one to get. It's a EQ and a JFET boost, and makes everything after it outstanding!
