Cicognani Engineering Releases the SexyBoost2 Dual Channel Tube Booster

An analog, tube-driven boost pedal centered around a 12AU7.

Clifton, NJ (March 3, 2021) -- Godlyke, Inc. is excited to announce the release of the SexyBoost2 from Cicognani Engineering. Designed by the “Guru” Guglielmo Cicognani, the SexyBoost2 is an analog, tube-driven booster pedal that is perfect for pushing the front-end of a tube amp or as a level booster in a loop.

The SexyBoost2 circuit is centered around a 12AU7 preamp tube that provides maximum headroom and transparency. The pedal features two discreet, footswitchable channels. The first channel is a clean boost with max gain of +10 dB. This channel is perfect for a thick, full-frequency rhythm sound. The second channel is a dedicated midrange boost with a max gain of +8 dB. This channel is perfect as a lead boost to pop out of a mix.

A global Treble/Bass Cut control rounds out the SexyBoost2 and allows the user to fine tune the pedal’s tone for use with a variety of amps.

Features:

  • Tube booster pedal based around 12AU7/ECC83 preamp tube
  • Clean Boost channel with -30 dB to +10db gain range.
  • Mid Boost channel with -30 dB to +8 dB gain range.
  • Global Treble/Bass Cut control for precise tone adjustment.

Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
