Clifton, NJ (February 8, 2012) -- Tech 21 has added 4 new effects to their Boost Series line of pedals: Boost Distortion, Boost Overdrive, Boost Fuzz, and Bass Boost Fuzz. Designed and built from the ground up utilizing the best individually-selected, hand-biased discreet components, each unit delivers optimized performance with studio-quiet operation. The powerful boost function delivers up to 21dB of clean boost, which can be used independently from the effect. A true post-boost, it punches up the tone you dial in, rather than smothering it in unwanted distortion.

Tech 21’s all-analog circuitry merges the classic sounds of vintage effects with modern dependability. The Boost Distortion delivers fast punchy tone; its unique SAG control adds an expressive, tubelike response to every pick stroke. The Boost Overdrive pumps up the midrange and adds sustain; the sparkle control adds upper harmonics for an open, snappy sound. The Boost Fuzz celebrates germanium fuzz sounds, this SAG control allows notes to bloom and sing for dynamic, organic performances. The Bass Boost Fuzz ranges from the fat, gritty sounds of the ‘60s fuzz bass to the subterranean growl of industrial metal; for more focus and edge, the +CLEAN control adds just the right amount of direct bass tone to the mix.

Other features include Level, Tone and Drive controls, high-impedance input, and a silent-switching, custom footswitch actuator. Operable with 9V battery or optional DC power supply. Manufactured in the U.S.A. Available for $195.00.

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. 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.
