The BBE Boosta Grande MBG-20 is an award-winning boost pedal, with its ergonomic mini enclosure and ability to offer a potent dose of volume - up to 20dB in fact! But while most boost pedals simply pile on gain and push an amp's tubes harder, a common side-effect is excessive brightness - causing a tonal imbalance. That's why BBE has engineered its Boosta Grande pedal to sound "transparent"; ultimately pushing your amp harder without drastically changing the shape of its sound.
To achieve a transparent boost experience, the BBE Boosta Grande mildly rolls off some top end starting at about 1kHz, so that when the amp’s front-end is driven harder with gain, the additional upper harmonics generated by the tubes aren’t too extreme.
