The AMAZONBASICS Boost Pedal is NOT a Clean Boost!

In case you’ve been living under a rock the past week or so, AmazonBasics has released a line of guitar effects pedals, and we’ve been reviewing them one at a time.


Today we’re taking a close look at their $25 Boost pedal, and the first thing you’re gonna want to know is whether or not it’s a clean boost – and I’m just gonna go ahead and spoil it for you – it’s not. Bezos did us dirty again.

If you want to hear just how dirty we’re talking, you’re gonna have to hear it in the video above where I put it through its paces. You know – for science.

If you like the pedal and you’re thinking about buying it, use my affiliate link (at no extra cost to you) so I can divert some of the money from Jeff’s pocket to mine (so I can buy more pedals to review).

Also, if you want a T-shirt that says “boost it” on it, I made one for you here. It even has Bezos’ face on it. Don’t ever say I never gave you anything.
