[blue/fish] Boost – Standard Edition
15 in stock
Debuting at Summer NAMM, the [blue/fish] Boost is a unique two-channel boost featuring two distinct circuits in one enclosure. Designed with blues guitar in mind, the [blue/fish] sounds great driving a clean or dirty amp channel, or providing its own grit. It also adds color and warmth to acoustic performances.read more
The [blue/fish] Boost offers two unique boost channels – Loud and Louder – that can be used individually, or can be stacked together. Each features its own passive volume control, and there is an optional clipping section which follows the Louder channel. The Loud channel adds some warmth to your tone, while the Louder channel is a clean boost that is more apt to break up – in a good way.
Like other pedals in the [fish] Series, the [blue/fish] features a solid curly maple faceplate, cut and etched by our friends at Griffen Hollow Studio. Large aluminum knobs control the channel volumes, and top-mounted Lumberg audio and DC jacks are used. The [blue/fish] footprint measures 2.61″ x 4.78″ and is roughly 2″ tall. The [blue/fish] is true bypass, with each channel being controlled by an independent 3PDT footswitch.
The Standard [blue/fish], housed in a candy blue enclosure, features germanium diode and MOSFET clipping. These clipping options are controlled with a three-way mini toggle switch mounted between the volume knobs. Please note: the Louder channel must be activated to use the clipping options.
- Germanium Diode Clipping (Switch Left) – this option compresses your signal, both lowering the volume and flattening the peaks. This setting sounds like your guitar signal is being “squished.”
- Clipping Bypassed (Switch Upright) – this option bypasses the clipping section all together and allows the boost channels to ring out uninhibited.
- MOSFET Clipping (Switch Right) – this option adds dirt to your signal. Depending on your guitar pickups and your signal chain, this can be anything from mild breakup to full blown distortion. Great for Texas Blues or Southern Rock.
The [blue/fish] was developed for electric blues guitar, but we have found it to be equally at home on acoustic – particularly the Loud channel. It pairs well with other effects, particularly overdrive and light modulation.
