SPOTLIGHT REVIEW
VERIFIED BUYER
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us.
Sound: Sounds wonderful...does what it says...boost your signal with very little difference if any change in tone. Feature: Very simple controls...one knob....one on off switch. Pretty idiot proof in my opinion. I wish all peals were more simple like this one. While I love my other pedals that have a million plus knobs, they can be quite cumbersome to dial in the tone you want. This is very straight forward...much to my liking. Ease of Use: Couldn't really be any easier...one knob and a on off switch. Quality: Seems very well built...nice finish and graphics. Value: I bought this pedal on a price match guarantee. So I was able to get it for around $75 which I felt was a good price considering how small and limited its features are. However, if I had to pay full retail I'd probably just spend the extra $15-$20 and get the full size Spark Booster. Manufacturer Support: Haven't needed to contact them for anything yet. The Wow Factor: This is a great little pedal! It does exactly what it claims to do. It's not some fancy boutique pedal but it doesn't have the high price tag either. Overall: Great little pedal...highly recommend!

Overall: Great little boost pedal! I didn't want or need anything that would alter my tone; just needed a volume boost for my lead channel, and the Spark Mini Booster is perfect. As I said, it does exactly what it's supposed to do. Need an extra 20db of volume with no strings attached? Done! Features gets a 3 star b/c, well, there aren't really any "features". It gives you an extra volume boost. Boom - there's your feature. Quality gets 4.5 stars b/c this thing is tiny, compact and solid as a little brick. Manufacturer support gets an average 2.5 star rating, mostly b/c I have to provide a rating. I haven't had any need to deal with the manufacturer. Sound gets 4 stars b/c, again, it makes you louder. There's no alteration in your tone or extra additives to color your sound. Just pure, unadulterated loud. Nigel Tufnel would be proud. Ease of use gets 5 stars. Why? Because you plug your guitar in, plug the pedal into your amp, step on the footswitch to turn on the bright white LED, and turn the volume knob to achieve your desired loudness. Seriously, your technophobic grandma could work this thing! Value and "Wow" factor both get 3 stars. At $100, it's not the most expensive pedal out there by a long shot. But it's a bit expensive for what it is, in my humble opinion. And there really isn't much "wow" to be found here. It's a simple boost pedal. What else did you expect it to do? Overall I gave it 4 stars. It does exactly what it says it'll do, and it does it very well!
