    -even had a guitar with a photoresistor on the pickguard -so if I waved my hand in front of it below the pickups it would trigger some momentary logic to insert the boost -instead of using a pedal. Never worked as well as I wanted -except at the house under controlled ambient lighting.

    Back then all this awesome pedal circuit info wasn't easy to come by, i had a dad, books, and some magazine info -I can't imagine the kind of stuff that I would have been doing with all the education available instantly now.

    look at this beautiful mess... lol

    The Pickup Booster is such a versatile pedal. I've used it first in the chain, to boost into drives, but currently have it on my small board after the drives as a solo boost.


    Do what I do. Hold tight and pretend it's a plan!
