Tone Freq's Daily Pedal: Wampler's Talent Booster

When I saw Brian Wampler post this new pedal picture on his Facebook page I thought it was some kind of joke. I still chuckle at the pedal's name. Here's the description from his website.

Sometimes you just need that "11" on your guitar or amp... something to to beat your amp into submission and show it who's boss...

It's finally here... the TALENT booster. It's true! Step on the button and instant talent... well, that's not entirely true but stepping on the button will catapult your signal making your amp much more responsive. I've designed this pedal to be very touch sensitive and warm, yet it has a switch to add in some mids and presence if you need extra 'girth'. It's a very transparent JFET based booster, and has a 'gain' control (which allows you to have a hint of dirt), a volume control, and a presence switch which will add in some mids and highs.

Cranking up the gain and you can add just a bit of natural compression and a bit of grind that makes a clean tone jump out... it doesn't change your tone at all however, it just ADDs to it!

It works well as a simple solo boost as well - place it behind your favorite overdrive or distortion (or use it in your amp's effects loop) and it will allow you to get your solo tones way out in front.
