This morning I stumbled across a nice deal on the MXR Custom Audio Electronics (CAE) MC-401 Boost pedal. I’m a big fan of boosters. If you have a tube amp, these are great for boosting leads, or getting some great grit from your tubes. Also, this is great for driving pedals. The MXR CAE MC-401 Boost is designed by Bob Bradshaw and uses the best components as you would expect from Custom Audio Electronics.
The MC-401 Boost is as simple as it gets giving you 0 to +20dB in boost. Single footswitch, knob and LED indicator.
The MXR Custom Audio Electronics MC-401 Boost lists for $169.74 but is usually available for $100, but is currently on sale for only $82.19 and ships for free from Amazon. At the time of this posting there were 20 items in stock. When the count goes down, the price often jumps back up, so if you’re looking for a booster, this is a great opportunity to pick one up at a great price.
