Description

FET OverBooster is our take on a discontinued Boss™ FA-1 FET Amplifier in a pedal format. The pedal could be used as a preamp/boost to drive your amp or as an overdrive. Overdrive mode enables asymmetrical soft clipping using orange LEDs. It uses NOS MC1458 (Motorola/TI) op-amp and Toshiba 2SK209-GR J-FET transistor and runs the circuit at +-9V to offer extended dynamics.

Controls

  • Range - frequency response control: bass/full frequency/treble booster.
  • Master - effect output level.
  • Impedance - controls the signal impedance when the pickup simulator is enabled, allowing you to adjust the interaction between your guitar and the pedal and fine-tune your tone.
  • Bias - adds gain and some grid, varies transistor bias point.
  • PU Sim toggle - switches pickup simulator. When the PU Sim toggle is off, the buffer and the Impedance pot are also bypassed, giving you a classic effect that is sensitive to the input signal and any other pedals in your chain.
  • LED brightness trimmer - placed on the PCB trimmer allows you to adjust the status LED brightness.
