Denne pedal er solid som en kampvogn. Yderst nem og simpel betjening, en enkelt knap, skru op, skru ned, sådan. Pedalen er transparent og farver ikke guitarlyden så det er som det skal være. Sæt den foran en overdrive, så kommer der virkelig fart på. Jeg bruger min som nævnt og også til hæve niveauet på en solo med ren lyd. Den anbefales hermed!
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.
