The Black Cat OD-Boost is a dual channel overdrive/boost pedal that combines
the Black Cat OD-1 with a clean boost circuit. The two channels can be used
individually or they can be used together simultaneously. There is also a
switch to change the order in which the channels are stacked, allowing the
option of selecting OD into Boost, or Boost into OD.
Similar in concept to the Black Cat OD-Fuzz, the OD-Boost combines two
distinctly different circuits of pure gain and allows them to interact without
being compromised with tone circuitry. The OD-Boost is a powerful, dynamic and
incredibly loud pedal that allows you to discover and explore the finest
grades of raw, unprocessed dirt.
Here's how it works - two footswitches allow independent control of the OD and
Boost channels. Each switch is an on/off for its own channel, so you can have
just OD, just Boost, or both at the same time. There are Drive and Volume
controls for the OD channel, and a single Boost knob to control the level of
the Boost channel. The toggle switch allows the option of either running the
Boost signal into the OD, or taking the OD signal first and then boosting it.
The OD and Boost channels compliment each other extremely well, with many
useful combinations to be had by blending the two circuits and switching the
order of the channels. You can get an endless array of gritty dirt tones, or
just put some more muscle into what you've got already. No filter, no EQ...
pure organic gain.
