    Thanks guys, so MXR makes both the Micro Amp and the Booster-Line Driver...what is the difference between the two that makes up the $20 in cost?


    I have owned both, the Booster/Line Driver has a flat EQ and incredible clarity. The Microamp gets a little loose and flubby in the low end to my ears. The Booster/Line Driver also has a pretty blue LED, never underestimate the power of a blue LED.

        Creation Audio Labs MK 4.23 is the best clean boost pedal.

          This is going to sound odd, but the Boss FZ-2 has a clean boost mode that is pretty amazing. I didn't have any trouble finding one used and it was under $100 - plus the fuzzes sound pretty good, too.

            Some of these suggestions seem rather expensive for such a simple task.

              the mxr/cae boost/line driver is excellent for this. you can find one used for like 60-70 bucks. no tone coloring whatsoever, a lot of boost on tap

                The clean side is pure clean boost (one of the best imo). You can mix between total clean or a TS-808 that's on the other side.

                  You want something with a tone knob with the Class 5 IMO, that amp gets brighter as you turn it up (at least mine does). A Fromel UP! has worked well for me.

                    Thanks for all the replies, the MXR/CAE Boost/Line Driver seems just what I'm looking for. I'll have to check out an EQ also (the MXR 10-Band EQ looks cool, has a dedicated volume control...though it is more pricey than the Boost/Line Driver).

                      Yeah, I do notice that with any drastic increase in volume on the Class5, though not too much with small increases. I do want to basically allow myself to have this amp on "2 settings" via footswitch, but to retain (as much as absolutely possible) the actual amp's tone/feel/gain at each of those settings (so that it would really be just like I walked over to the amp mid-song and adjusted the volume dial).

                            How about any overdrive pedal but with the gain at zero? As soon as you turn up the gain knob that's when you begin to add the overdrive's character to your sound, but at zero you aren't adding any.

                              I don't think that's true? If you did that with a TS9/808, wouldn't you still get the mid bump?

                                Hey,

                                So, I'm looking for a clean boost to use with my Marshall Class5, with no coloration or EQ shenanigans going on inside (transparent is key).

                                My goal is to kick on the boost to emulate the volume knob on the amp going up from 4 to 5~6 (via a stomp box, so that I wouldn't need to keep manually tweaking the volume at the amp).

                                Looking to spend under $100 for this.

                                Thanks!
