Eliminate your Need for a Boost Pedal

I love guitar pedals as much as the next guy, but sometimes simpler is better when it comes to your guitar rig. If you find yourself needing to downsize your rig, one of the easiest pedals to eliminate is your boost pedal.

So how does one do this? It's pretty simple really.

  • Turn your guitar's volume knob all the way up
  • Tweak your amp to get you a nice lead sound
  • Roll your volume knob back for cleaner rhythm guitar sounds

    It amazes me how so many guitarists have the volume on their guitars on 10 at all times, with no thought of trying anything else. If this happens to be you (no shame in that), experiment a little. You may find sounds that you didn't know you could produce with your particular guitar and amp.

    What are your thoughts? Do you set your volume on 10 and let your pedals do the work? Or do you use your volume knob to clean up (or boost) your sound? Leave a comment below to start the conversation.
