Just great!
erossini, 04.04.2018
If it's turned on, your sound will be better.
Boost the volume a lot, and increase the gain if you want to.

Very happy

Jede Menge Gain
Kröti, 21.02.2018
Ein Booster soll den Klang ja nicht verändern, sondern einfach das Signal anheben. Das macht der MXR Booster Mini hervorragend! Und er hat jede Menge Gain in petto - für meine Bedürfnisse sogar ein bisschen too much.

An sich ist dieses kompakte, solide Pedal sehr vielseitig - eine Kombination aus Micro Amp und Echoplex Preamp, mit Potis für Volume und Tone, mehr braucht ein booster nicht zu haben! Tatsächlich gibt's unter der Haube noch mehr, denn anscheinend reagiert der Volume-Poti nur auf den Micro Amp, während der Gain des Echoplex im Inneren des Gehäuses eingestellt werden kann .

Im Direktvergleich mit dem klassischen Micro Amp zeigt sich, dass der Booster mehr Gain hat - klar, der Echoplex ist ja auch noch am Werk. Am Ende habe ich mich mit dem einfachen Micro Amp wohler gefühlt, obwohl die beiden vom Sound her sehr ähnlich sind - spricht: neutral, wie es sein soll bei einem Booster! Wer mehr Dampf braucht, wird sicher mit dem Booster mini glücklich - und bekommt sogar noch ein 9 V Netzteil dazu...!

Valeur sûre
Jeff Fan, 22.12.2017
J'ai hésité entre plusieurs modèles (des moins chers) pour avoir un clean boost possédant assez de réglages (ici, un volume, un réglage tone et le trim à l'intérieur) pour corriger les éventuelles interactions entre le boost, l'ampli et mes overdrives et rester assez transparent.
MXR m'a paru une valeur sûre, ça l'a été.

Le trim pot à l'intérieur de la pédale (réglage correspondant au circuit echoplex, je crois) m'a semblé ajouter des basses, du corps au son. J'ai pas aimé mais c'est une question de goût.

Le bouton de tone est assez subtil: pas de changement radical du son au programme.

Avantages: le son, la réserve de boost qui est énorme et donc polyvalente (en façade, dans la boucle et pour canal clair comme saturé, où on profite un peu d'une compression du signal).
La péale est petite et la prise d'alimentation est au dessus (contrairement aux MXR standard qui gênent l'utilisation des câbles patchs, les MXR en particulier!).
Les réglages assurent une certaine polyvalence d'usages.
Une alim est fournie avec: pratique si on branche la pédale dans la boucle d'effet.
Je trouves la pédale jolie (c'est bête mais ça compte!).

Inconvénients: Pourquoi un réglage à l'intérieur? Pour régler la pédale, il faut ouvrir le capot avec un gros tournevis et régler avec un petit tournevis. Un non-sens à mon avis. Sur le mien le Trim pot crachotait un peu.
Un peu de souffle quand elle est actionnée mais comme toute pédale sans doute.

C'est globalement un boost de qualité. Pour le prix, on est sûr d'avoir on bon boost, en particulier lorsqu'on ne peut pas en essayer 36 faute de magasins bien fournis.

Simpel und Toll
Thomas_Schwabing, 17.05.2020
Also, es gibt ja sol viele Pedal und Booster. Irgendwann habe ich mir mal angewöhnt zuerst bei MXR zu schauen. Das bekommt man immer etwas welches einfach ist, fair im Preis und gut funktioniert. Der MXR Booster ist keine Ausnahme. Die Mini Version des Echoplex PRE Pedals. Ich benutze den Booster in der FX Schleife also Solo-Volume-Boost, er addiert etwas Mitten und mein Solo Sound liegt gut im MIx meiner Band. Vor dem Amp klingt er auch gut, da habe ich allerdings den MXR Sugar Drive. Plug & Play. I like!
