The Shine Boost SB-1 is a custom handmade effect pedal developed to provide an output signal with much more presence and gain than the input signal, free of distortion and low noise, with a purpose to go beyond the concept of volume pedal. The SB-1 pedal from TopTone intensifies the definition and the clarity of the tones, emphasizing the natural frequencies of the instrument , without compromising the nice features of the original input signal.
With just one volume knob and a small tonal brightness key (mid & treble booster), the “Shine boost” can be used in any kind of sound and style, whether for clean sounds or sounds with drive.
The SB-1 can be used in different ways in your guitar setup, the most common are:
• between the instrument and the amp;
• before or after the effects chain;
• In the send / return of an amp.
When placed before the tube amp, the SB-1 has the function of " pushing the amp" , helping to saturate the valves , giving the feeling of increased power and making the amp looks like much more aggressive.
If placed before the chain of pedals, the SB-1 accentuates the effects of all the pedals that comes after him, such as the drive, chorus, flanger, phaser, delay, etc.
The volume knob backlit in blue neon is an exclusive innovation of TopTone, providing an unique inspiration and a great viewing even in environments and situations with low lighting.
