The Suhr Koko Boost is an amazing pedal offering up up two cool modes. On one side, a transparent clean boost that gives your overdrive sounds that extra bite and attack. On the other, a midrange boost that will drive you into screaming solos. This pedal is super simple to use and provides everything you need to expand your drive sounds and breathe some life into your gear.
The Transparent Boost
Clean transparent boosts like the Koko can work for nearly any style of music. They will not only take your drive sound up to a new level but it can also help push up your volume using clean tones. Although it works great on a clean channel, it's in front of a driven amp where it shines.
This transparent boost has a lot of range. At the lower end of the boost control you get a more subtle effect, while at the higher end you get some incredible sustain that will take you through any solo. Because this is so transparent you still get the sound of your amp - just hotter.
The Mid Side
The mid circuit is naturally less transparent and more aggressive. Sometimes volume is not just enough and you need an extra bit of midrange to help you cut through for a solo or a particularly tasty lick. When you turn on the mid side the boost controls how much of a the effect you want still while the mid side controls exactly how much extra mid you need.
Even if you are picky about what midrange frequency you want to boost, the Koko has something for you. You can dial in the mid range frequency accurately to best suit your amplifier and guitar.
