The latest in the firm's line of compact overdrive and distortion pedals.
Spark Booster rounds off TC Electronic’s successful line of compact overdrive and distortion pedals.
It features 26dB of boost for enhancing existing sounds and highlighting solo or rhythm parts. It also has tonal options, adjustable through an active EQ consisting of a Bass and Treble knob, as well as extended lows and added top-end sparkle. A Gain knob allows for the addition of saturation and compression, and a mid-boost switch adds clarity.
“Spark Booster is the epitome of what we tried to contribute to the guitar community with drive sounds,” says TC Electronic’s Tore Mogensen, product manager for guitar.
“After Dark Matter Distortion, Röttweiler Distortion and MojoMojo Overdrive were met with runaway success, we really wanted to round out our efforts in compact drive-effects with a bang. We are an innovative company and hate looking back, but there was no denying that the classic TC Electronic Booster + Line Driver & Distortion would have to be a source of inspiration. From seasoned pros like Scott Ian and Allan Holdsworth to dedicated hobbyists, there are just so many guitarists out there who absolutely love that pedal, but crave modern features and sounds. And so we decided to not go for simply a reissue or something like it, but more of a modern take on what made the Booster + Line Driver & Distortion so special. That result is Spark Booster, and I simply could not be more proud of what we’ve achieved.”
