The Bigshot PB1 Vari-Boost Power Booster from Radial Engineering is a highly evolved example of a pedalboard staple, the power boost. A Class-A true-bypass circuit is coupled with a buffer for silent switching, and a custom Drag control lets you adjust the amount of boost until you find the "sweet spot" for your particular instrument and amp.
Built for the road from 14-gauge steel and heavy-duty hardware, the Vari-Boost gives you the clean, musical gain boost of true-bypass circuitry with the silent switching of a buffer. It lets you use longer cable runs without signal drop-off, while preserving the intended tone of the guitar and amplifier.
- Class-A Electronics
- Discreet components preserve tone as gain is boosted, avoiding the "honking" sound of gain boosts that are built from integrated circuits.
- Drag Control
- Any deviation from the proper pickup load can be tweaked back into place using the recessed Drag knob, so you get a clean boost and nothing you didn't bargain for.
- Built to Last
- The Vari-Boost is built like a rock. Heavy-duty footswitches and 14-gauge steel stand up to whatever your tour schedule--or your garage--can dish out.
