Libido Boost

Another pedal based on a Tube Screamer? Indeed. One of very, very many. This one bucks the trend a little and winds things back to be more of a clean boost with some grit at the top of the gain control, and it does it very well.

Three clipping settings give you some subtle differences in compression, making this a very versatile boost that won't over-colour your tone.

Designed for vertical mount pots (round shafts), but you can wire up 'normal' pots (splined shaft) if you prefer.

Partial kit: PCB, all board-mounted components, pots.

Full kit: As above, plus footswitch and appropriate daughterboard/components for your selected bypass type (see Downloads section for details of those), jack sockets, DC socket, battery snap, hook-up wire, LED.

Enclosure (pre-drilled) is only available with full kits, and will take a battery. Knobs are not included.

Builds are only available with full kits including enclosure and vertical-mount pots. Please choose appropriate knobs.

Difficulty: Easy

PCB size: 50 x 28mm

Knobs required: 3

Enclosure: 1590B

Direct Connect compatible (4-way)

Excellent 5 product stars
"Really tremendous at adding a bit of top-end bite and clarity, while boosting the volume. Works really well as a tone-sweetener. The different 'clipping/compression' settings aren't wildly different to my ears (although I have a preference), but the gain range is just right. NIce easy build, too." Matt - 09/03/2018

"..and i just spent 280 on a gooped Sex Drive..! this one isnt weariNg protection! Lol! Lovely tone shaper, but a bit polite as a booster. Gets you those Dylaneque electric tones, good for no-depression type rock." Ozzie Battla - 17/01/2018
Subtle yet essential! 5 product stars
"This is a lovely sounding thing! You can use it as a very transparent clean boost with the option of increasing the gain to "almost" drive like territory. There's plenty of volume if you want to use it as a boost. Or you can use it as a compressor - two modes - soft and hard - both quite subtle but very nice. I bought this to use as an "always on" pedal that would improve clean tone whilst giving a bit of character. It does this very well. The presence control works nicely too, brightens everything up a treat without losing too much low end. Another great sounding kit - well done Fuzzdog!" Dez - 26/07/2017
