Premier Guitar reviews the MB7 Booster

Sept. 11, 2012, midnight
Premier Guitar has reviewed the MB7 Booster pedal in its October issue's pedal feature.

Here are a few of the highlights!

"In addition to being a clean volume boost, the pedal has a 7-band graphic EQ that allows you to shape the tone to suit the situation. And extra EQ is always a good thing, especially when it’s switchable. Because the MB7 Booster will let you tweak the EQ to cut through the mix and simultaneously boost your signal, it’s a great fit if you’re a solo-heavy bassist.
But even if you aren’t an out-front player, you can still benefit from the pedal. Let’s say you have a backup bass that is not tonally identical to your main axe. With the MB7 Booster, you can closely match your two instruments (this is also relatively effective for matching a passive to an active bass), and in case of an emergency, the pedal can make switching between the two more seamless. The additional EQ can also be helpful when saddled with a house rig. It’s not a cure-all, but having this pedal in your bag may make your life a lot easier when you are playing through a less-than-adequate rig."
 
"Backing down the 400 Hz slider gave the midrange-heavy Warwick a more even tone. I was also able to make the Jazz sound like it had an onboard active preamp, and mellow out the StingRay with just a few easy adjustments."

"The MB7 Booster is ruggedly constructed, housed in a black metal body with rails on each side of the illuminated EQ section... this pedal is solid, and the bright yellow lights on the sliders make on-the-fly adjustments easy on the darkest of stages."

"The MB7 Booster is a straightforward pedal in its design and performance. I really appreciated the transparent true bypass of the pedal, and its simple yet effective layout makes a great addition to any rig. Guitarists shouldn’t have all the solos, so if you are in need of a little boost—and who isn’t?—then the MB7 Booster is worth a test drive."
