The Fryette® BoostassioTM

High Voltage EF86 Pentode Tube Power Boost Pedal

 

"The huge range in output level of the Boostassio can drive a tube amp from blissful overdrive to total annihilation!"

 

 

High Voltage "Pentode" design

The BoostassioTM is unique among pedals in general and tube pedals in particular. It utilizes an EF86 “Pentode” type preamp tube rather than the typical 12AX7 “Triode” type. The EF86 produces power amp distortion qualities not available from a triode tube type and therefore delivers real amp distortion sounds similar to that which you would experience with a cranked, low powered vintage tube amp.


How It Works

 

Most boost pedals, in fact most pedals in general, operate at very low voltages which typically limit dynamic range. Dynamic range is the ability of a device to react to and reproduce large changes in volume or string attack. If you hit your strings hard and the tone seems thin and squeezed rather than fat and snappy, you may be experiencing compression due to lack of dynamic range.

Boostassio is a high-voltage pentode tube design which produces greater dynamic range than a typical pedal. This coupled with a variable bias control produces not only a huge sounding clean boost, but can also emulate the sound of a cranked single-ended low power amp. As a result, you will be able to hear all of the complex amp harmonics as well as the subtle sonic signatures of your different guitars.
