SKU: TI-BOOST

    Product Description

    Tony Iommi is widely revered as one the forefathers of heavy metal. The genre simply wouldn't be what it is today without his (literally) ground-breaking, unforgiving sound he managed to forge all those years ago. Synonyous with Laney Amplifiers and his iconic Gibson SG, there was a third crucial element to his signature sound: a modified boost pedal!

    Enter the TI-Boost from Laney's Black Country Customs banner, a painstakingly-handmade pedal that's been designed to fulfil your desire for that extra scream that tipped Sabbath over the edge and into the depths of hell.

    The TI-Boost was made in the sonic image of Iommi's original Range Master boost pedal. The formula is familiar; it'll give you a significant bass cut and mid boost, adding a crisp edge to your existing overdriven or fuzzed up sound. You're also armed with extra EQ and gain options, so you aren't limited to a single signature sound. In this unit, you'll be able to attain that old-school, luxurious but screaming mid-boost, with all the room you need to make it your own!

    Here's what Laney say about the TI-Boost:

    The guitar sound of the first Black Sabbath Album is actually the result of a number of key components, Tony himself not withstanding, but it is also the sound of the LA100BL plus a Dallas Arbiter Range master pedal that Tony used at the time, allowing him to push the front end of the amp into overdrive giving him his signature distorted tone never before heard.

    There is a story relating to Tony and his “Range Master”.

    In the days immediately before Sabbath, Tony was playing with a band located in Cumbria and a guitar player in a local band said that he could modify Tony’s Range Master and that it would sound better. So Tony agreed and had his pedal modified.

    Tony never knew what the modification was but it sounded really good and gave his LA100BL the gain he was looking for.

    The modified Range master was used for recording and touring up until 1979. When, for some reason unknown to everyone apart from Tony’s amp tech at the time – it
    got thrown away!

    Since that day Tony has had a sound in his head, a sound that first inspired him to play some of the most recognisable riffs in music, a sound which he thought he’s never get back!

    Until now that is!

    When we began to discuss the possibility of building a replica of Tony’s original 1969 LA100BL we realised quite quickly that we’d need something to push the front end of the amp harder. So in conjunction with the design work on the NEW LA100BL we also started working on a boost pedal for Tony to use in the same way he used his Range master.

    The result – the TI-BOOST.

    We are very proud of our association with Tony and to have him commission us with his only authorised signature pedal is a real honour.

    The pedal functions in the same way as his legendary modified Range master – with a significant bass cut and mid boost, but we’ve included a little more gain and EQ options to make it more appealing to more players looking to find their own sounds.

    The TI-BOOST is a simple pedal – it has a Drive and a Volume control, along with the ability to dial in the Low and Hi frequencies as well as a mid switch that gives you a couple of different Mid frequency options.

    Sonically the combination of the LA100BL, the LA412 and the TI- BOOST pedal gives you a guitar tone recognised for decades around the world by millions.

    Good pedal I tend to prefer it with a guitar that has humbucker pick ups. Not really made my mind up regarding a strat prefer to use a bsm treble booster for that . But certainly gets some great sounds on a les paul. Just wonder what other people think

    Sounds great thought a valve amp with the drive on about 1 and use the gain and volume on the pedal to get the early sabbath sound works great with my SG, The mid boost thickens up the sound of my Strat, I also tried the pedal through my line 6 Pod HD using the Marshall Plexi amp model, and that sounded fantastic, so all in all I would say the this Pedal is well worth the money even if you already other own drive /distortion pedal because lets face it you can never have enough pedals.

    Mr Alan Orgill9th Sep 2018

    At last it is my birthday and I am 'allowed' to open this pedal! Ha ha ha However, I was surprised to find that even though sealed, the box did not contain any manual or instructions etc, and online there are only video demonstrations and not a manual to download. Not really a problem because I can easily home in on the sounds that I want, but was a little disappointed at this. This pedal is superb at boosting an already driven or distorted sound, but don't use it into a clean amp at low volume, it can be very 'raspy'. Saying this by spending a little time working through the settings, you can get some amazing sounds. Highly recommended but not if you are just looking to 'distort' a clean amp.

    Mr H Hewson14th Jul 2018

    I had to get this. It sounds amazing and is historic in the metal community.

    Very flexible pedal, does jazz through to very metal tones.
