MXR/CAE Boost/Overdrive Guitar Pedal By Custom Audio Electronics

MXR/CAE Boost/Overdrive

Pedal Manufacturer

Custom Audio Electronics


The MXR/CAE Boost/Overdrive pedal offers a combination of a dynamic overdrive and an independent clean boost circuit in a compact design. The overdrive section provides a classic sound with warmth, sustain, and punch, ranging from a bluesy, slightly overdriven sound to full-metal crunch with adjustment of the gain knob. It is designed to be touch-sensitive and responsive to picking dynamics, without thinning out when the guitar volume is rolled back. The boost circuit, which can provide up to +20dB of ultra-clean boost, is the same circuit used by CAE for signal conditioning in major guitar systems. The pedal can be powered by a 9-volt battery, a Dunlop ECB003 9-volt adapter, or the DC Brick™, Iso-Brick™, and Mini Iso-Brick™ power supplies (not included).

- Input Impedance: 1k ohms
- Output Impedance: Boost ON <150 ohms, Overdrive ON/Boost OFF <15k ohms
- Boost Gain: 20 dB
- Signal to Noise Ratio: >87 dB
