The Carl Martin Boost Kick is a 9V-battery-powered pedal designed to provide up to 12dB of boost to give that extra “kick” required for a great solo.
The level control determines the boost level. The 3 band EQ section is comprised of Punch (bass), Attack (mid) and Edge (treble). *
This allows a virtually unlimited range of solo sounds without compromising sonic quality.
Getting your solos to cut through the cacophony of the band can be a handful. With up to 12dB boost and the 3 band EQ at your feet, hitting the right sound at the right level is a breeze.
The Carl Martin Boost Kick is true bypass and features an AC adapter jack.
This is what they say
There’s hardly anything to complain about with these pedals. The Danish designer these are created by Holm Malmquist – certainly knows a thing or two about tone and how to cram it into a little black boxes, so anyone looking to augment or upgrade their pedalboard would do well to take a look.
