The Bleak District Miraj is an all-analogue four-stage optical phase shifter - in short, it does a mean impression of the Phase 90 and Univibe sounds thanks to its two distinct modes.
But more than just looking back at classic phaser and vibe circuits, the Miraj offers a wide range of sounds that will suit many different genres, from Heavy Blues to Classic Rock, Shoegaze to Metal.
The Volume control provides up to 8dB of boost, allowing you to easily match volume levels with other elements in your rig as well as having the guts to drive the front end of your amp.
The Depth control is designed with plenty of modulation range in mind - a swimming pool at the deep end, if you will.
Go from languorously plodding to immediate and cutting modulation. Use the "EXP" TRS input to adjust the Rate on-the-fly using an expression pedal for a more intuitive and organic approach.
You can also set the Rate using the Tap footswitch, giving you the ability to quickly and easily match the tempo of a song.
Sets the amount of signal fed back into itself, giving more intense modulation with a wah-like character, developing into self-oscillation at higher settings.
Select from 8 different wave shapes for vastly different sounds
Switch between phaser or vibrato. Vibrato essentially lifts the clean signal completely, leaving you with the effected sound only. It gives a very unique voice at higher settings, but at lower settings it is perfect for just adding a touch of extra dimension and depth.
The Miraj features 2 modes:
"Uni" - Based on the Univibe, this gives a uniquely chewy sound somewhere between chorus and vibrato.
"90" - Based on the Phase 90, this mode gets you into classic "swooshing" territory, but it's also capable of more subtle shimmering.
Analogue Modulation Pedal with "Uni" & "Vibe" Modes
I spent an obsessive amount of time checking out univibe pedals. I'm so glad that I purchased this one from Boost. It is simply fantastic! If you don't believe me, then check out some video demos. Thanks Jim! + JG
This is a fantastic drive pedal. There’s plenty of Plexi style pedals out there and I’ve owned a few, this one stood out for the switchable A/B-B/A switch. The boost side is nice and simple, much like an LPB-1. Not overly clean but a perfect partner to the drive side. The Plexi side is again nothing revolutionary but very good all the same and sounds great, on a par with far more expensive pedals.
The build quality is also top end, very neat and tidy. Squeezed into the single enclosure and with a lifetime warrantee I couldn’t ask for more. I don’t think this’ll be leaving my pedal board any time soon!
Lots of great sounds in this relatively-compact delay / reverb
I’m only just starting to scratch the surface of the KMA MACHINES Cirrus, but absolutely loving it so far. Very responsive to pick attack which means can really control the “ambience” with playing style. Really looking forward to exploring further.
Had a few vibes, absolutely loving this one, check the YT demos, lovely satisfying vibe with all the swirly goodness you could hope for. Beautifully made and reasonably priced. Highly recommended - and Jim at Boost is a top guy
I came across the Formula B Fuzz Rangers via online demos on Youtube, and they all sounded so good that I had to get one. Looking online I found the Boost Guitar Pedals website via the Formula B website as a listed UK stockist. Jim was excellent and the pedal arrived when he said it would and it was perfectly packaged. I would have no hesitation in buying any other product from Boost.
As for the Fuzz Rangers, it is a great pedal. I had to work at it a touch to get the sounds I liked from it, but it seems to react really well to different guitars and different amps with adjustments to volume and tone on the guitar and different amp settings. I found it works best into a slightly cranked amp, and volume roll-off on the guitar offers a great variety of sounds from clean to classic fuzz. Thoroughly enjoying the pedal. Well done Jim, great website and a great selection of interesting brands and pedals..... Which one next????
Having used a number of univibe clones over the years this one truly nails the sound for me, it comes with some clever additions in a pedal board friendly size and is excellent value for money. If you want the true sound of the original this pedal delivers.Special thanks to boost Guitar Pedals for putting this deal together so quickly..
I'm still working my way through all the sounds, but so far I'm loving them all.
Each time I think I've got a fav sound I flip the diode switch and there's another one. Great value for a four-in-one fuzz pedal!!
Both modes really useable. The first can get a wooly or starved/wolly sound or more nasally raw sound depending on how you dial it in.
Mode two can be more mid focused and with both switches down it's just a real nice deep, warm wall of fuzz. Great stuff.
Awesome pedal. Does everything from short slaps, to long endless delays, or echo-verb. The infinite delay feature on the button hold is interesting, though if you need a certain sound out of it like that, you have to be okay with the sound that those settings create when the infinite hold feature is off. I’m sure it will be great for recording some interesting textures, but I don’t think I’d use it live, as the infinite hold sounds glitchy and cuts off very quickly at some of the shorter, more subtle delay settings that I use. The art on the pedal is nice, and the build quality is solid. Comes with a carry bag, for some reason, but I can’t complain. A great unit by any standard, but especially good quality and features for the ticket price.
