A simple volume boost
Yanbul, 13.03.2014
Electro-Harmonis LPB1 is a perfect pedal for those of you who just need a basic volume boost. It features only one single volume knob which is quite sensitive. There are basically two ways to use it: 1) as a booster in front of the amp (before going into the amps input) - this can be useful if you want to warm the tone up a little bit or increase your gain a little in case you have low-output pickups. 2) as a volume/lead boost in the fx-loop of the amp, so you just increase the overall volume of your amp, in case your amp doesn´t feature a volume boost. But watch out, the volume know is much more sensitive in this approach and reacts to even minimal adjustments with rather big volume increases. The way I use it is a volume boost for my solos/leads. I found dialed the right amount of boost in, so that the leads cut through the mix well (around 9 o´clock) and taped it over with gafo, to prevent the setting from getting messed during gigs and transport. The pedal doesn´t affect the sound considerably, dunno if it´s got a passive bypass though. But there are no sound issues with that. Of course the xotic ep booster sounds much sweeter and you can fine-tune the sound with midcontrol, etc. But the LPB costs only a small fraction of the EP price, so it´s really acceptable.

All in all, it´s a good solid volume-boost pedal, with a good value for money.

EHx LPB-1
Ampmeister, 04.02.2015
This small Box is a Booster who fits on every FX-Board.

The LPB-1 comes in a small yellow package, just with a short user guide and a warranty Card. A 9V battery is included and already inserted into the Pedal. You can use a power supply too, if you want.

The LPB-1 sounds very neutral, when the gain knob is on 9 o'Clock to 10 o'Clock.
It just gets the Volume louder as it's supposed to do.

When you crank the gain knob to 11 o'Clock or more, you get an overdriven Sound, which sounds a bit harsh, that's why i gave just 4 Stars.

But used just as a Booster, it works very well.

Small but powerful
Rjones86, 06.04.2017
The EHX LPB1 is a compact pedal which doesn't take up much room at all on the pedalboard. It's a true bypass clean boost based on a design that's been around for a long time.
This can hit your amp with a load of extra gain if you run it in front of the amp, giving a bit of a volume boost but also working as a great little overdrive to fatten up your sound. It also stacks well with other pedals, goosing ODs and distortions into smoother, thicker solo sounds. The other way to run it is either at the end of your fx chain or even better, in your amp's fx loop - this gives you a massive clean volume boost, not adding much gain at all, just smashing up the volume to help your solos stand out above the band in the live mix. It fattens up the tone a little in the mids and lows which is a really nice extra effect for lead playing.
EHX sometimes have issues with quality control but this LPB1 has never given me any trouble at all. It's happy in a gigging situation and is versatile enough to be used in a number of ways. The true bypass also means it won't affect your standard guitar tone too much either. Recommended!

It doesn't always work, but when it does, it's awesome
Jeddr, 10.02.2019
I have a love-hate relationship with this pedal. It works very well to subtly push some cleaner tones to just break a little. But when used to enhance already overdriven amps, it creates a sonic hole in the mid region that sucks all live out of the amp.
