They make it easy to turn the knob with your foot. If you want more than one, you can add them to your shopping cart from the Accessories - Pedal Parts menu.

Bass version $0- We can tailor the pedal for lower frequencies of bass guitar.

Description Technical Specs
Analog Man produces the Beano Boost. This pedal is based on the Dallas Rangemaster, a type of BOOSTER, not really a distortion pedal nor a clean boost. It excites certain frequencies and pushes your amp to allow it to create rich, crunchy tube distortion. A must have!!!
Steve Hackett of Genesis. Beano Boost is on in all clips, even the clean one.
Beano Boost requires optional power jack in order to use any power supply. Power jack is optional because it works and sounds best with a battery. If you get the power jack option, then we can also sell you a nice quiet power supply for it. No reverse polarity issues on the power jack, normal isolated 9V boss type will work. We don't just add a power jack, as that would be pretty noisy, we also add power filtering circuitry to the power jack connection to reduce power supply noise. Please use only an ISOLATED power supply with these pedals, sharing power can cause noise and other issues.
The optional on/off volume pot allows disconnecting the battery by turning the volume all the way down. Then you can leave the pedal in your pedalboard without having to worry about unplugging the input cable to keep the battery from draining. This is not available on the Mini Beano Boost as it does not use a battery.

New for 2013! MINI BEANO BOOST

I am not a fan of tiny pedals as I have human size feet, but some people really like them. They are also great when using loop-based switchers. So Analog Alex built up some Mini Beano Boosts for a customer request. No room for a battery but they work fine on a good power supply. Also the ON/OFF volume pot is not available for the mini as there is no battery to save by turning it off.

We are charging a little more than the normal Beano Boost with power jack, as it takes quite a bit of delicate labor, and only certain transistors will fit.

5 of 5 Just buy a Beano Boost already. November 8, 2021
Reviewer: Michael from Kansas City  
I'd tried overdrive after overdrive to push my more lightly-gained amps, especially my Vox AC15, and every pedal either did too much (totally changed the amp) or too little (hardly added anything).  The Beano Boost was exactly what I needed the whole time.  The way it pushes an amp into maximum rock'n'roll while retaining the amp's character is incredible.  Put a Beano Boost in front of any light- to medium-gain amp and listen to it transform into a fire-breathing, infinite-sustaining, solo-singing, midrange-ripping crunch monster.  And if you've already got your amp cooking, hit it with the Beano, and all that extraneous fizz and flub will tighten up into a vocalized laser of tone for your solos.  Mick Ronson with Bowie, Marc Bolan with T. Rex, Tony Iommi with Sabbath, and, best of all, Brian May with Queen are all waiting in this pedal.

5 of 5 Beano Boost Vs Other Treble Boosters February 11, 2021
Reviewer: Rakesh Rai from Singapore, Asia Singapore  
I have tried this Beano with other True Bypass Treble Boosters. The rest are pricier and don't truly justify. Some to name are: - BSM Treble Boost, Soulsonic Custom 4Banger, Rory Gallagher's The Hawk by Flynn Amps, UK, and a few more.

All I can say is that the Beano Boost has its own character. Every nuance of your playing style is noticeable, meaning it reacts to your style of guitar playing. 10/10 for the Beano with Strats/Teles. Has an Awesome low volume growl with my Bareknuckle pickups. Good job Mike!

5 of 5 Twist & Toggle-The Beano is Primo!!! February 9, 2021
Reviewer: I Love Fuzz from Los Angeles  
The Beano boost has an amazing range. By twisting the volume and toggling between tones, the Beano has a wide variety of uses on it's own. My Beanos are stock and they sound proper with all guitars and amps, put in their path!!! The Beano also plays well with other pedals!! With the Beano supplying a little bit of color on the front of the chain, everything sounds sweet and complete! Thanks again Analogman for another colorful tone box of molten sonic Fuzz!!!

5 of 5 Absolute gold. November 13, 2020
Reviewer: Dave Andrews from Buckinghamshire, England.  
This pedal will take you the tonal place you wanted to be, even if you didn't know it.
Playing it feels like coming home.
The Beano does beautifully what other pedals pretend to do, and it sounds like the real thing, because it is the real thing - without the gimmicks, the advertising or the commercial dishonesty.
It has a warmth that is difficult to describe, and offers a palette of tones from your volume knob alone.
Absolutely blown away.
Thanks Analogman!

5 of 5 The Rock 'n' Roll Machine April 27, 2020
Reviewer: Benjamin from St. Louis, MO  
This pedal is the real deal... a true sonic force. I think it's worth taking note that when we talk about artists like Iommi and May, we are also talking about very distinctive sounds and sonic palettes. This pedal is a tool that can take you there in a way it seems others cannot. With the three position toggle it has no discrimination regarding pickups; both P.A.F.s and single coils are juiced up and ready to go. Follow it up with a little drive and it just smokes. Put it through a small amp and watch it light up. Highly recommended. Was the original this good??
