A dual channel overdrive/boost pedal that combines the Black Cat OD-1 with a clean boost circuit.

Foxon, CT (April 22, 2013) -- Black Cat Pedals is pleased to announce the OD-Boost, a dual channel overdrive/boost pedal that combines the Black Cat OD-1 with a clean boost circuit. The two channels can be used individually or they can be used together simultaneously. There is also a switch to change the order in which the channels are stacked, allowing the option of selecting OD into Boost, or Boost into OD.

Similar in concept to the Black Cat OD-Fuzz, the OD-Boost combines two distinctly different circuits of pure gain and allows them to interact without being compromised with tone circuitry. The OD-Boost is a powerful, dynamic and incredibly loud pedal that allows you to discover and explore the finest grades of raw, unprocessed dirt.

For those who relish the profound shifts in color and mood that a little volume or tone knob tweak can provide, the Saturn V Harmonic Booster has the potential to be a very special, even indispensable piece of gear.

Boosters, despite seeming simple in function and intent, vary wildly when it comes to tone, purpose, and potential. Clean boosts (though rarely truly clean) can increase pickup output without adding too much distortion, or compensate for signal loss at the end of a pedal chain. Treble boosters, with their narrow focus, can create the perception of a clean boost, though you typically hear an increase in noise, too. It’s all confusing and abstract enough to scare off a lot of would-be users.
