Dan­elec­tro bil­lion Dol­lar boost, Filthy rich

Guitarist - - Contents -

The fa­mil­iar-look­ing con­trol lay­out com­bined with Dan­elec­tro’s claim that the Bil­lion Dol­lar Boost is a reis­sue of a 1980’s se­cret weapon of A-list Ir­ish and Brit rock­ers, makes us think that it’s most likely based on the Boss FA-1 FET Am­pli­fier as used by The Edge. What you are get­ting is a solidly built pedal that of­fers ei­ther a flat boost across all fre­quen­cies or a boost that rolls off some bot­tom end. Unity gain is at about 10 o’clock on the Vol­ume knob and above that there’s loads of sig­nal driv­ing ca­pa­bil­ity with the op­tion of bring­ing in the Bass and Tre­ble knobs, each of­fer­ing prac­ti­cal cut and boost. At lower lev­els with our clean amp it de­liv­ered a touch of airy en­hance­ment and ex­tra clar­ity, while fur­ther on it was able to in­duce breakup, grit and crunch. Where we re­ally liked it though was in front of a drive pedal where it laid the per­fect jump­ing off plat­form to an­other level. Verdict A ver­sa­tile boost with plenty of oomph and tonal sweet­en­ing that’s great for stack­ing
