    Default Naive signal boost question

    I notice that I get a nice signal boost, which is great while soloing, with my MXR Phase 90. When not using the pedal, the drop off in sustain and boost if you will, is very noticable. Can anyone recommend a nice pedeal to use that will do the same thing without the phase effect? Would a simple overdrive pedal work? Appreciate any help.

    MXR makes a pedal called a "Micro Amp" that will boost your signal.
    You could also use a Boss graphic EQ pedal which also has a volume control for additional boost.

    The Micro Amp is good. MXR also makes a boost pedal that was designed by C.A.E (custom audio electronics, Bob Bradshaw) that also works well.

    I use one to boost the signal for solos. http://www.jimdunlop.com/index.php?p...p_and_e_detail

    And finally, the Micro Amp... http://www.jimdunlop.com/index.php?p...p_and_e_detail

    I use an MXR Micro Amp for my solos....it's awesome, an incredible pedal that does the job perfectly. Doesn't color your sound at all, just raises the volume.
