Description Technical Specs
Analog Man produces the Beano Boost. This pedal is 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 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 will 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 can sell them for the same price as the normal Beano with power jack. It's a little more labor but a little less cost in the box.

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??

5 of 5 Beano Boost Vs Other Treble Boosters March 7, 2020
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 Beano Boost w/Mullard Transistor February 13, 2020
Reviewer: Rick from Western Massachusetts  
I finally own the sound of all my favorite records from the 70s. The Beano Boost is a perfect recreation of everything I love about Cream, Sabbath and Judas Priest. I'll never take it off my board, I'll probably never turn it off, and I may even start sleeping with it under my pillow. Immense thanks to Mike and everyone at Analog.Man.

5 of 5 Beano Boost Review January 29, 2020
Reviewer: Benjamin Berrigan from Toronto, ON Canada  
The Beano Boost pedal arrived last week and I hooked it up using only a Boss SD1 through a vintage Traynor YGL3 all tube amp and . . . my jaw dropped. I was speachless. The sound was exactly what I was searching for but could not find in "off the shelf" pedals. The Beano Boost perfectly controlled the drive tone to exactly where I wanted it. And what a sound! It sizzles and punches perfectly. It boosts with a drive that is clear but with a sound that you have to hear to believe. The Beano Boost really is an amazing pedal and it will be on my board forever. The guys at Analogman have obviously put a lot of personal effort into designing it and, moreover, sourcing the NOS parts. Well done and thanks again.
I sincerely recommend this pedal to anyone searching for a sound that resembles the overdriven punch and roar of the 1970s.
Thanks again!

5 of 5 The sound December 2, 2019
Reviewer: Anonymous Person  
Perhaps best described as the sound I didn’t realize I’d been searching for—until now. Sonically, the Beano Boost pedal accentuates the best of every sound source it sees.
