a top en that has just a small bite to it. I cant recommend this pedal more . for the price you cant beat it. It is a little cleaner with an adapter hooked up to it instead of under battery power
We play at pretty high stage volume. Intentional or not, it happens. While I play mostly rhythm there are times when I need my guitar to be front-and-center, and I wasn't getting that. The complaint was that I couldn't be heard.
Then I saw the LPB1 and as usual I didn't have time to mess with it before buying it, so I did my usual and figured "Hell, what could it hurt?" At this price I could always sell it if it sucked too bad. I had an important show coming up in a week and was already breaking my cardinal rule of adding equipment for a show that I haven't rehearsed with.
So I got it and I've been in love ever since. The switch is Nice and tough, the jacks are great, and the pot is nice and snug. Don't let people tell you that this pedal doesn't color your sound, because it does. There is a very subtle color and the slightest hint of breakup in the boosted signal, but in my case (modern country/southern rock) it works well and isn't a problem. Make sure you check it out before you buy it.
Oh yeah, it also comes with a battery. Honestly I didn't know it had a battery because I plugged it right into my board and never opened it. I only use batteries in my rig in emergencies. Just recently discovered the battery. Another plus if you're a battery person.

this pedal does its job and reasonably well. but I also think it adds too much character to your tone. Read morePublished 1 month ago by bobby esser
I have been using the LPB-1 since it first came out in the early 70's, it's a decent way to overload a tube amp with a big fat signal. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Mark King
It sends your amp into overdrive which isn't what I wanted BUT some people buy these types of boosters to send tube amps into overdrive. Not what I wanted. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Sophie
Sounds alright. One time, I was playing a gig, I stepped on this... nothing. It cut the signal overall. I haven't put this in my live signal chain since. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Alex Ray
This would be a five star item if I didn't have to keep pulling out the input jack to preserve the battery. That gets old. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Tyler Forge
The pedal gives way more than enough boost. It does make an audible pop noise when stepped on.
Aaaaand, it took a crap and quit working. Not happy.
This little pedal is awesome. It's super simple and brings your sound way up. You won't have to go much past the 9 o'clock point. This is where it starts to get loud. Read morePublished 4 months ago by tjt70
