Bigfoot Trouble Booster Mini
Our mini guitar boost pedal.
The Bigfoot Trouble Booster Mini is a small germanium treble booster pedal with some unique modern features.
How does it sound?
This pedal has 2 settings: the Bright mode is inspired by the vintage Greg Fryer and Dallas Rangemaster treble boosters, capturing the classic Vox AC30 Top Boost and Brian May (Queen) sounds. The Normal mode provides a wealth of fatter overdriven tones inspired by Billy Gibbons (ZZ Top), packed full of rich harmonics.
Although we still use hand picked NOS germanium transistors, we use negative ground wiring so you can integrate the pedal into modern pedalboards. It also features an invaluable Bright/Normal switch for toggling between the classic treble booster sound and a fuller, fatter tone. The mini footprint is ideal for small pedalboards.
This is the perfect tool for getting a plethora of vintage dirty tones from one compact pedal.
