A new pedal from Brad! If you don't know, he was an integral and regular contributor here for a long time. The creator and builder of the awesome SMS preamp among other many cool pieces of gear.

Ordered mine up yesterday. Thank you @sarnomusicsolutions!

Looks cool - grats Brad. Should complement the Earth drive nicely for that extra push!

Mine should be here on Saturday, maybe even tomorrow if I get lucky. Looking forward to it!

Just saw this.

Very cool and practical that the pedal remains buffered when bypassed. Had I been aware of this 6 months ago, I could have ordered one for myself instead of shipping another of my clean boost pedals back to its builder to mod it to do the same thing for me. Though I may yet cop one of these, too (no one ever said on his deathbed, "I wish I'd had one less clean boost." :lol: )

Not a critical question but curious if anyone happens to know the typology for the pedal? I.e., what circuit it is or is related to? E.g., stratoblaster, Jack Orman JFET mu-amp, etc.?

It looks like an Earth Drive and a Freeloader combined into one pedal?

Bill, tgo

This would not occur to me as the Earth Drive is described on Sarno's site as a "boost/overdrive" while the Doozy is described as a "clean boost" but it would be nice to be certain (I've tried the Earth Drive - it's a wonderful pedal but a pure clean boost it's not).

I just ordered one they're currently on sale. Getting annoyed with my mu-fx boostron and it's lack of a footswitch.

I emailed Brad with a question on the Doozy which he hasn't yet responded to but I ordered myself one anyway because, as I've already posted, no one ever said on his deathbed, "I wish I'd had one less clean boost." :drink:

Awesome! I'm still waiting on mine.

Also, when I asked Brad my question in my post above, I used an old email address. Once I figured that out and emailed him at his current address, I got a prompt reply confirming the Doozy Boost and Earth Drive are entirely different circuits.

I'm still not understanding why this thread's in Live Sound and Recording :-) but here's my initial review of this excellent clean boost: https://www.thegearpage.net/board/index ... k.2156404/
