About Us Jim | Boost Guitar Pedals

Hi, I'm Jim! I founded Boost Guitar Pedals in 2019 with the aim of providing musicians with access to high quality guitar pedals that we term "artisan" and "boutique".

You can buy the most popular brands of guitar pedals everywhere, but from our HQ in Windsor, UK, we focus on boutique pedals from small, independent builders. They don't have big PR budgets, just a desire to bring us guitarists awesome tone and innovative effects pedals.

Why Boutique Pedals?

I must admit, I have a problem: I suffer from budget creep.

Budget creep means you want to buy something for £50 but after a bit of research you end up buying something for 3 times the price because you become so invested in all the tiny details.

That's why I love the fact that all of the guitar pedals we stock are built with the highest quality components, handwired in small batches rather than churned out in a large factory. 

Another reason artisan guitar pedals rock is that you can see the character of the man (or woman!) behind the brand. These pedals aren't the result of boardroom meetings, branding exercises or a "stack them high, sell them low" approach, they are borne out of a desire by the maker to create something that they feel guitarists need - because the vast majority of them are guitarists themselves.

I am also a guitarist, although mediocre at best. In my experience as a guitar player of 25+ years, it's the sum of the parts that counts when it comes to feel and tone. These pedals won't make you or I better players, but they will enable us to play to the very best of our abilities. The right pedals can also help develop songwriting ideas and aid diversity during recording sessions, which is an element that shouldn't be underestimated.

So yes, boutique pedals are all about the sum of the parts. When every piece of the puzzle is absolutely on-point, the results can be outstanding. I hope you find something at Boost Guitar Pedals that will help you in your guitar journey and amaze you as much as they've amazed me! 

What Do Our Customers Think?

"My new favourite pedal. All of my other fuzz pedals are going up for sale. Oh, and excellent service from Boost Guitar Pedals also."

David Oates

"I’m so excited to have found Boost Pedals. I watched the demo for the Logos this morning and quickly sent a message to Greenhouse asking about sending to the UK, shipping costs and that annoying import duty (that’s messed up purchases one too many times!). They straight away messaged back to say you guys have it in stock, and POW! It’s done. I’m grateful for your existence and I hope you have success upon success!!"

Mark Nash

"Just received a Midgie booster-overdrive, I didn't know what I was doing with it so I asked heaps of questions. The response was swift and knowledgeable (rare these days). Great company would definitely recommend!"
