Listen to early Clapton solo stuff like "Let It Rain" to give a you a taste of what it may sound like (at least that's what my ears hear). I also think it adds just a bit of compression as well but that could just be the effect of the boost. I like it but it's a pain to change the battery, which sits under the pickguard. If I had to do it over again, I would just do the GGG pedal route.

George wrote:Thanks Wadlo!!! For now I'm not doing the effects loop, so I'll just install the blaster and use it either on or off. I'd like to be able to control the gain on it without the use of a small screwdriver. I'm wondering if I can mod it somehow to have a small dial come thru the pickguard, so I can adjust it much more easily on the fly, if desired. Any thoughts on this?
