A dual boost that ups the power to 18 volts for more headroom and uses a Baxandall tone circuit.

Lititz, PA (September 29, 2020) -- Are the colors you’re getting from your sound garden not quite standing out enough? Do you want more tonal options from your boost pedals? Give the Poppy Dual Boost a try. Perfect for tone shaping, driving a tube amp or pedal, or just giving you that extra boost you needed for your solo.

The Poppy operates on 9V, but boosts that to 18V internally to ensure that you have all the clean power you need. It is essentially two boosts housed in a single 125B enclosure. The two sides have slightly different controls and different circuit topologies. The Red Poppy is the same opamp based boost circuit from the original mini Poppy pedal. It has three controls: Boost, Tone, and Bump. Boost controls the over boost level you’re getting, while the Bump and Tone controls give additional tonal abilities. The Bump control boosts a certain range of frequencies more than the rest, and this frequency range is controlled by the Tone control. So if you really want to just get a mids boost, or get more of a trebly sound, turn up the bump and choose your desired frequency. The White Poppy is a new circuit which uses JFET transistors and a Baxandall tone circuit for a more tube amp-like tonal quality. It also has 3 controls: Boost, Bass, and Treble. As usual, the Boost controls the overall boost in the circuit, and the Treble and Bass controls allow you to shape your EQ to your liking.

Both circuits utilize a boost control which is a bias control, which allows for as much clean headroom as possible. But if you’re looking to get dirty, try running them both at the same time! The Poppy also allows you to place the Red and White sides at different places in your signal chain if you desire, due to it’s extra in and out jacks. So if you want to place one before your drives, and one after, it’s quite easy!

Kenny Greenberg with his main axe, a vintage Gretsch 6118 Double Anniversary that he found at Gruhn Guitars in Nashville for a mere $600. “It had the original pickups, but the finish had been taken off and the headstock had been repaired. So, it’s a great example of a ‘player’s vintage instrument,’” he says.

On his solo debut, the Nashville session wizard discovers his own musical personality in a soundtrack for a movie that wasn’t, with stops in Africa and Mississippi hill country.

Kenny Greenberg has been Nashville’s secret weapon for decades. He’s the guitarist many insiders credit with giving the Nashville sound the rock ’n’ roll edge that’s become de rigueur for big country records since the ’90s. It’s the sound that, in many ways, delivered country music from its roots to sporting events.
