    Product Description

    The TC Electronic Spark Booster is super flexible booster pedal with all the control needed to dial in your pefect boost sound. Whether you want an 'always-on' subtle compression or a huge boost for rawkus solos you can be sure you'll find what you're looking for here! The active EQ controls give you a huge scope to sculpt your exact sound so you could even use it to beef up single coils to sound like humbuckers or even vice versa!

    Here's what TC Electronic say about the Spark Booster

    Spark Booster is a special type of pedal. It's a pedal that will ignite your playing and kickstart your inspiration. And no matter how you decide to use it, it's a guaranteed ear-to-ear grin as soon as the first notes hit you. What starts as a "just-wanna-try-this-pedal-out"-session turns out to be a 3 hour marathon of new riffs, licks and ideas, without you even noticing any time has passed - because you were too busy having fun and sounding great. That type of pedal.

    Spark Booster works wonders as an always on-type of effect - adding life, grit and compression to your sound in a way that just oozes tone and musicality. Add body, punch and warmth to pickups, drive amps to peak performance and enhance the sonic possibilities of existing sounds. Spark Booster also shines when used as a pure level boost. It's the perfect tool to prime solos, highlight parts and add another musical dimension to your amp or Overdrive/Distortion pedal - to really drive that killer solo, lick or riff home.

    Spark Booster's feature set is all about you - maximizing what you already have and realizing your potential. The level knob allows you to add 26 dB of boost - it raises your volume without altering the character of your tone in any way. Spark Booster's Gain knob is perfect for adding a hint of breakup or slight compression to a clean amp.

    The active EQ controls consist of Bass and Treble knobs - which allow you to cut and boost these frequencies. They form the perfect tone shaping tool and because they are active EQs, Spark Booster can amplify frequency areas as well, and be used to create deep, extended lows or to add beautiful top-end sparkle. Also, Spark Booster is True-bypass, guaranteeing optimal tonal integrity.

    Rounding out the feature set of Spark Booster is a little toggle switch that allows for three settings. The ‘Clean' setting means the pedal boosts your signal equally across the frequency spectrum. The ‘Fat' setting fattens up sounds and adds life and punch to your sound, and allows for precise tonal shaping with the EQ and Gain knobs. The Mid-boost section provides a bump in the mids that is both musical and pronounced. It cuts through any mix with heaps of unprecedented clarity and allows you to be heard like never before.

    Spark Booster is the fourth entry for Overdrive/Distortion pedals in our compact pedal series, and rounds up our lineup on these type of pedal platform. Based on the runaway success of the classic-sounding Dark Matter Distortion, the more modern voiced Röttweiler Distortion and the MojoMojo Overdrive, Spark Booster had to be the grand finale to our take on drive, distortion and boost. Simply put, we wanted to make this one truly special and in order to do so, we took inspiration from our own history.

    Whether you are a starting guitarist or a seasoned pro, chances are you've heard of us at some point. For many this will be about our reputation in Reverbs, Delay and Modulation effects, but for guitarists who know and love their boost- and distortion greats, it will be about one of our first pedals: the TC Electronic Booster + Line Driver & Distortion. A true classic in its own right and the perfect starting point for Spark Booster. To this day, the Booster + Line Driver & Distortion is used by high-profile pros as diverse as Scott Ian (Anthrax) and Allan Holdsworth, and it is a highly sought after pedal on the used market. We took all that made the Booster + Line Driver & Distortion so immensely popular and brought it into the 21st century. And so, Spark Booster is not a 1:1 port, nor is it a reissue or a tribute. Rather than that, Spark Booster represents a modern take on all that made the TC Electronic Booster + Line Driver & Distortion such a fantastic pedal - and the ultimate declaration of our love for amazing boost and distortion sounds, aimed squarely at guitarists that want to spark their creativity.

    Another drive/boost pedal. The ability to switch between fat/clean/mid modes is a nice feature. Separate bass and treble is handy too to sculpt the tone. Only 4 stars though because the foot switch is terrible. Why can’t TC put the same switch as they do in the polytune?

    Very good. Use it as always on booster.

    Mr Gary White22nd Jul 2021

    Really versatile, but I'm mainly using for simple 'clean' boost with some added top end for pushing valve amp front end with some sparkle, plus pushing drive and distortion pedals. First pedal in my chain (after wah). Works really well for that, but the added 'fat' and 'mid' settings may also be useful so may need to buy another one someday for more live options and shenanigans.

    This is another highly versatile pedal from TC Electronic. Could be used for a clean boost, solo boost or pre-amp and if you want it, there’s probably enough gain to use it as an OD. Ridiculous value at that price too.
