For a few years now, I’ve been a pretty big fan of line drivers, clean boosts, micro amp stuff. I really like the idea of cleanly boosting your signal to your tube preamp to get some tone goodness for leads, etc. The MXR MC401 Boost / Line Driver combines MXR and CAE (Custom Audio Electronics) to deliver a booster with high quality components.
The MXR MC-401 is crazy simple to use. Button and knob, that’s all you get.. and that’s all you need. The knob controls the dB level. The MC-401 can give you up to +20dB of clean signal boost. The switch is true bypass. The MXR MC-401 lists at $169.74 and is usually available for $100, but is currently on sale for only $77.99 on Amazon. That’s $22 off the going rate. The pedal also ships with FREE super saver shipping as well.
For those of you not too familiar with the MC-401 Boost, here is the official product video by jimdunlopusa.
Again, the MXR MC401 Boost / Line Driver is on sale for only $77.99 at Amazon. At the time of this post, there were 3 left in stock. When this reaches 1, the price will most likely change, so if you want it.. you best get on it!
