The solo’s com­ing up, you want a big­ger sound, you step on the ex­tra gainy pedal… your sound dis­ap­pears! We’ve all done it, but if you want to stop do­ing it just re­mem­ber, the more gain you pile onto a sound, the more head­room and clar­ity you lose, the more ev­ery­thing is com­press­ing and the less the au­di­ence can hear you. If this is hap­pen­ing to you, you’re bet­ter off with a clean boost or EQ pedal, prefer­ably with a slight bass cut and an in­crease in up­per midrange, tre­ble and pres­ence.
