The Landau Boost is the ultimate transparent clean boost and volume controller in one built to Michael Landau's specifications. It is expertly crafted to provide total volume control over your signal with ZERO degradation (from 0 to +16dB over unity gain) via an EXP. Simply connect the Boost with any EXP pedal and control your volume as you would using a volume pedal (but without any tone-suck). Since your guitar signal is isolated from the EXP pedal, your tone remains open and full-range, and most importantly, it feels like you're plugged straight into your amp. When the boost is off, the pedal is in True Bypass mode and the Volume/EXP control is out of the circuit.
