tone freak PINEAPPLE BOOST pedal
The inspiration for the Pineapple Boost guitar effects pedal comes from a well-know “mythical” circuit. The Pineapple can act as an always-on pedal, adding a fuller tone to your signal. As a boost, there are several options. Before an amp, the Pineapple Boost gives you more of the core characteristic of your amp, while provide some additional overdrive type grit and volume. Setup you favorite overdrive or distortion pedal for moderate overdrive, then kick-in the Pineapple Boost guitar pedal to not only boost your guitar signal for a solo, but enhance the overall tone. You can call this the “more” pedal.
A couple things separates the Pineapple Boost pedal from other boosts of this type. First, the “Clean” and “Gain” knobs gives you the ability to blend in the clean and gain signals separately to get those in-between sounds. With the Pineapple Boost, you also choose between germanium and silicon signal clippers. Again, this enables you, the guitarists, to choose the right tone for session or gig.
The Pineapple Boost has a lot of versatility, making this more than just a boost pedal. It can help shape your overall guitar tone hitting the front end of your amp or following another dirt pedal.
Volume: Increase the volume by turning the knob clockwise. Turning the knob counter clockwise will decrease the gain.
Tone: Turing the knob clockwise will increase the high end tone. Counter clockwise will decrease the high end and increase the low end tone.
Clean: To increase the clean signal in the mix, turn the know counter clockwise. To decrease, turn clockwise.
Gain: To increase the gain signal in the mix, turn the know clockwise. To decrease, turn counter clockwise.
Power: 9V battery or a 2.1 mm center negative pin, AC-DC, 9V, 120VAC, 200 mA power adapter.
The Pinapple Boost has 2 different clipping sections.
• Right position uses Silicon signal clipping and has a more compressed sound, compared to the germanium clipping. •Left position engages the germanium clipping. You will find this position to have be less compressed and more open sound, compared to the silicon clipping.
