Molecular Boost
Boost – Preamp – Buffer – Volume Pedal

  The Molecular boost is a small but powerful and versatile stomp box. It can be used as a buffer, a booster, a pre-amp or a volume pedal and it can be placed anywhere in your rig. An internal voltage doubler ensures that the Molecular boost can handle any signal level, leaving the quality of your tone intact. A dual high speed FET opamp is responsible for matching the impedance of most pickups and piezos and for accurately preserving the character of any instrument plugged into it, while driving even the longest cables without any signal loss.
  Enjoy a generous amount of boost (from 0db. to +18db.) by adjusting the easily accessible external knob.


4 external DIP switches

  Use the four external dip switches on the left side of the Molecular to dive into some serious tone shaping and to access extra features:

    • DIP1 & DIP2 are responsible for the boosted frequency range
      • DIP1 & DIP2 down: Boost high frequencies (treble booster)
        DIP1 up & DIP2 down: Boost high mid frequencies
        DIP1 down & DIP2 up: Boost mid frequencies
        DIP1 & DIP2 up: Boost all frequencies (clean booster)
    • DIP 3 up: engages a high cut filter 
    • DIP4 up: engages the xp input when the pedal is in buffered bypass mode 


True bypass – Buffered bypass

  Also, an internal switch allows selecting between True bypass and Buffered bypass modes, so that you experience zero signal loss even when the pedal is bypassed (buffered bypass mode).


Expression input

  There is more! Control the overall volume of the boosted signal when the pedal is engaged, or the unity level when the pedal is disengaged and in buffered bypass mode (external DIP 4 must be up) by connecting to the xp jack:

  1. Any expression pedal with a stereo jack (minimum impedance of 10Kohms).

  2. Any guitar volume pedal using an insert Y cable stereo to 2 mono (tip output of the volume pedal – ring input of the volume pedal).
