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.
