Sitek Guitar Electronics Updates the Caffeine Booster

Updates include a drive/boost modes, a tone switch, and a DualMode footswitch.

Gdynia, Poland (September 30, 2020) -- Sitek Guitar Electronics brings a vast update to one of their first creations - Caffeine Booster. This pedal livens up your guitar tone like a good espresso shot. Known for its rich, sparkly boost and bright crunch this pedal gets some brand new features. While the original character was preserved, Andy and Hania added more gain and additional controls for further tone-shaping. The update was also highlighted by the new colour of the enclosure.

With Caffeine Booster V2 you get two more switching options: a D/B Mode Switch - a selection between drive and boost modes and a Tone Switch, which modifies the bottom-end of the signal to compensate for different kind of guitar pickups and suit player’s personal preference. Caffeine was also designed to play well with guitar volume and tone controls. Just like in the previous version, new Caffeine Booster is equipped with DualMode Footswitch allowing momentary or latching operation.

New Caffeine Booster offers following features:

  • 4 simple controls: Level, Gain, Drive/Boost Selector and a 3-way Tone Switch
  • 100% discrete analog signal path designed with a combination of BJT and JFET transistors
  • DualMode Footswitch for momentary or latching operation
  • Powder coated enclosure to withstand tough stage conditions
  • Reverse polarity protection
  • True Bypass
  • Power supply 9V DC or 9V battery
  • Compact footprint

Caffeine Booster is available to purchase on Reverb.com or directly from the Sitek Guitar Electronics website at www.sitek.rocks and carry a price of $165.

On the Tuareg band’s Funeral for Justice, they light a fiery, mournful pyre of razor-sharp desert-blues riffs and political calls to arms.

Mdou Moctar, the performing moniker of Tuareg guitar icon Mahamadou “Mdou” Souleymane, has played some pretty big gigs. Alongside guitarist Ahmoudou Madassane, drummer Souleymane Ibrahim, and bassist Mikey Coltun, Moctar has led his band’s kinetic blend of rock, psych, and Tuareg cultural traditions like assouf and takamba to Newport Folk Festival, Pitchfork Music Festival, and, just this past April, to the luxe fields of Indio, California, for Coachella. Off-kilter indie-rock darlings Parquet Courts brought them across the United States in 2022, after which they hit Europe for a run of headline dates.
