I like the boost, gives a fuller tone.
R
Some good uses for the LPB-1: Boosting your signal at the end of the effects chain, overdriving an amp or distortion pedal, boosting a clean signal for solos, etc.

The switch is Nice and tough, the jacks are great, and the pot is nice and snug.

About a year ago I got rid of all(actually just took them off my board)my distortion pedals that had IC's in them. I decided to remove anybody else's idea of what was their idea of "good" distortion and come up with my own. Now all I have is a LPB-1 and a Keeley Java Boost. My first time on stage with the LPB-1 at high stage volume was great. My stock stratocaster just got huge, fat and greasey. The big, loud strat going into a JCM 800 Marshall was sounding unreal. It wasn't slick and processed, like an Ibanez Tubescreamer or Boss pedal would do. Just made my guitar BIG. Like the Big Muff Pi, this was one of the first pedals EH put on the market. Actually this was the first. It came out in 1968 and like the telecaster, was just perfect right out of the gate. It doesn't re-shape your tone. It just punches your amp with a boosted signal. Gibson found a nich with the Fuzztone in 1963, much to the horror of clean guitar fans. Well, EH did the same thing in making a stomp box that overloaded the preamp of your guitar amplifiers. Instant rowdy kids, mad parents, and the police at your door. In other words....Rock and Roll. Why spend $100.00+ on a fancy, boutique boost pedal when you can get this for $40.00 with a battery already in it. It makes your Fender guitar into a giant killer and your humbucker Gibson into gooey sludge if you want.

This pedal is fantastically reliable, and the best boost I've tried in terms of tone quality and low noise. Because it's a boost and not a distortion, it doesn't change your sound when you kick it in, but it does up the signal to the front end of your amp so it can get more of your Amp's own natural distortion to sing through. As a way to jump on top of the band for a solo, this pedal is the perfect thing. It does add a little bit of mid-range bump which I really like--not much but if you really listen you can hear it happening. Another great use for this is at the end of a chain of effects your using to make up for any signal loss suffered in your chain. I frequently use it as an always on effect in that case, juicing the front end of my amp just enough to make up for the loss in power from running through four different boxes. This can also be really useful if you use a couple different guitars, and one of them has a noticeably lower output than the other. You can figure that difference out in advance and have the boost level on this set to compensate, so when you switch instruments, you hit the boost and maintain your overall output level. This is so inexpensive, I can keep an extra on hand just in case. I have also bought a few of these to give friends who I thought could really use a boost. Seriously, at less than $40 this is a great deal.

I cannot shower enough praise on the LPB-1. It currently sells for about $40 and improves your sound when combined with any other pedal (especially overdrive/distortion pedals) or on its own. I keep it on all the time, since it always improves sound-quality.

At first you may think that you don't need to boost your signal but I've found a few good uses for this pedal.
First of all, It adds some sort of fullness to my sound. Too much can muddy up your tone for chords. If you're playing metal and want a razor sharp riff then leave this off but if you want some nice full chords then turn this on at about 3/10. My amp is somewhat thin sounding so this pedal helps thicken up the sound. I'm not quite sure if I can say it adds some bass or mids, cause it does sound bass-ier and fuller, which I'd say the mids contribute to the fullness.

Turn the knob all the way up and you can make a clean amp go into overdrive when you strum hard. It's cool cause you can be playing individual notes off a chord and then strum it, and it'll be overdriven. Leave it at about half way on a clean channel and you'll get a smooth clean sound.

I see this pedal as a mid-booster. That's somewhat the effect that it has. Thickens up the notes but may somewhat muddy up the tone if you're wanting some chainsaw/ edgy metal riffs. It isn't so bad cause the fullness that it has can make you overlook the newly acquired bassy tone that may be unwanted. The overall effect to the tone is only like a 5-10 percent feel and the fullness/ thickness added is like 20-30 percent. You may find it worth it.

It's not such a great pedal and you can probably save your $40 dollars if you're happy with your tone, but now that I paid the $40 dollars for it all I can do is use the pedal or leave it out. And considering that I'm always using it, I'll give it a 5 star rating. You can live without it but once you have it, the extra slight hint of effect this pedal has may be wanted. 5 stars cause this pedal doesn't lack anything. It's just a booster.. it doesn't claim to make you sound like your favorite guitarist, but it sure does help get a better tone if your amp is lacking or thin.

I bought this to boost the overdrive on my Peavey Valveking Amp. I was previously trying different overdrive pedals, such as a TS9 Tubescreamer, 2 different Rocktron OD pedals, BBE green Screamer OD. All of them seemed to color my sound just the slightest, even if you turned their gain parameter all the way down. So I ditched my overdrive pedals and tried this puppy. It blew me away. It does exactly what I want it to. It boosts the signal, so that if you are playing clean, the signal comes through clearer and more chimey. And if you are using a bit of gain, the pedal warms up the distortion and gives it more definition. And it does not color the amps natural tone any. Also, there is no hum or buzz of any kind, and the petal is totally quiet, whether on or off (I think it might be true bypass). This is probably the best pedal I've ever owned.
