Best guitar pedals for Blues - Boost Guitar Pedals

Best guitar pedals for Blues

These are our best guitar pedals for blues music. It's a genre that rarely delves into high gain, so you're best off keeping it light and letting the licks fly off the fretboard!

GREENHOUSE EFFECTS Outlier

£158.00

Cranked Tube Tones...

The Greenhouse Effects Outlier is a wide-ranging, harmonically rich overdrive/distortion pedal designed to emulate a cooking tube amp.

Combining 3 cascading gain stages (2x Op-Amp & 1x FET) in a complex circuit enables all levels of drive to be covered in a single pedal, from boosty overdrive and mild crunch to soaring high gain.

The active EQ allows far more tone-shaping possibilities than a passive design, and the Bass & Treble controls are very interactive with each other.

The input and output stages feature buffers to condition your guitar signal for optimum integrity.  

Features:

  • Volume, Gain, Bass, Treble & DIS/OD controls
  • 3 cascading gain stages
  • Active EQ
  • True bypass
  • Input and output buffers
  • Power: 9V power adaptor, centre-negative (not included)

RAYGUN FX Vintage Booster

£40.00

Awesome Analogue Power!

The Raygun FX Vintage Booster is a single-dial boost pedal that can add just a touch of meatiness to your core tone or push your valves into beautiful overdrive with +24dB of boost on tap.

Great as a clean or slightly dirty solo boost, the Vintage Booster looks and sounds like it belongs alongside some of those vintage amps we all revere. It has a beautifully organic character that's really addictive to play with.

Loosely based on the ZVEX Super Hard-On circuit, this boost is driven by a MOSFET transistor.

Raygun FX are based in Southend-On-Sea in the UK. High profile users of their pedals include Grant Nicholas of Feeder, Jez Williams of Doves, Tim Smith of Noel Gallaghers’ High Flying Birds, and Tim Wheeler of Ash.

Features:

  • Single-dial Boost
  • +24dB gain available
  • True bypass
  • Handwired in the UK
  • Power: 9V DC, centre-negative (not included)

The Ultimate Klon Klone?

The Fredric Effects Golden Eagle is a single-pedal sized recreation of the Klon Centaur, with completely accurate electronics built to the highest specification.

Just like the Klon Centaur, it features the internal buffer and charge pump, making the Golden Eagle the perfect pedal for three tasks on your pedalboard:

  1. Buffer - Use the Golden Eagle's high quality buffer to maximise the signal capacitance and resistance of your signal path, getting the most from your other pedals (there's a great That Pedal Show video on this topic, demonstrated using a Klon Centaur)
  2. Clean Boost - Use the Golden Eagle to condition your tone, running it at low gain and unity volume. Subtle but effective tone improvements.
  3. Overdrive - Turn the gain up to drive your amp into beautifully organic break up.

Just like Fredric Effects' other pedals, the build quality is exceptional, with a folded steel chassis featuring perfectly bevelled corners. It's the small touches that count!

Features:

  • 100% accurate recreation of the Klon Centaur
  • High quality internal buffer
  • Internal charge pump converts 9V to 18V for more headroom
  • Handmade in London, UK
  • Gain, Output & Treble controls
  • Power: 9V centre-negative or 9V battery (neither included)

An Accomplished Multitool...

The Fredric Effects Accomplished Badger is a dual-stage preamp/boost utilising a 4558 op-amp stage which drives A NOS vintage germanium transistor.

Impressive Internals

To maximise its potential as a clean boost, the Accomplished Badger features an internal charge-pump which runs at 18v from a 9v input. An audio-grade Triad output transformer provides musical saturation and breakup character.

What sounds can I get out of the Accomplished Badger?

The result is a glorious sound that goes from ultra-clean to harmonically rich.

You can turn the germanium stage right down for a super-clean op-amp boost, while turning up the germanium gain stage and driving it hard with the Clean Gain mini pot gets you into super-saturated, gritty, velcro fuzz territory.

Turning both controls to middling levels gives way to beautifully expansive tones with that characteristic germanium responsiveness and "bounce".

This is a super-versatile low-gain pedal, giving you the option of dialling in as much or as little germanium colouration as you like, or allowing you to run it as a clean preamp. A must for your pedalboard!

Features:

  • Dual-stage preamp/boost
  • NOS vintage germanium transistors
  • Internal charge pump converts 9V to 18V for more headroom
  • Handmade in London, UK
  • Gain, Volume, Si Bias, Ge Bias & circuit toggle controls
  • Power: 9V centre-negative or 9V battery (neither included)
