      The Vertex Effects Boost MKII pedal isn't just another boost—it's a game-changer that empowers you to sculpt your sound like never before. Going beyond its name, this multifunctional stompbox boasts 16dB of transparent gain, delivering a range from gentle level bumps to amp-saturating boosts. It's not just about boosting; it's about finding the sweet spot in your sonic journey.

      Sonic Purity and Creative Control

      Whether you're driving your amp into harmonic saturation or giving your solos a clean level lift, the Boost MKII is your secret weapon. Its versatile design accommodates both line- and instrument-level signals, making it adaptable for any setup. But the true magic lies in its ultra-linear input/output buffers. These buffers act as gateways to tonal purity, elevating your rig from mid-level to pro-level excellence with no tonal coloration. Even if your setup is nearly perfect, the Boost MKII adds that missing spark to propel your sound further.

      Maximize Your Sound Path

      Unlock a world of tonal refinement with the Boost MKII's unparalleled input and output buffers. Transform your signal path with precision, conditioning it for optimal input and stable output. These buffers maintain sonic integrity even with complex pedal chains, offering linear response and zero signal degradation. Whether you're wielding single-coil or humbucker-equipped guitars, the Boost MKII ensures your tone remains untouched.

      External Treadle-Style Volume Control

      Adding to its versatility, the Boost MKII features an insert jack for external volume control. Connect a treadle-style pedal to this jack, and you have dynamic volume manipulation at your feet. With the pedal bypassed, it behaves like a standard volume pedal. Engage the Boost MKII, and the pedal sweeps from zero to the Level knob's position. Your guitar's signal remains isolated from the external pedal, guaranteeing no compromise to your tonal quality.

      Slim Design, Monumental Impact

      The Vertex Boost MKII arrives in a compact enclosure that's 33% slimmer than its predecessor, yet its impact is anything but small. It's an essential addition to any pedalboard for players who value tone refinement and creative expression. Elevate your sound to the next level and embrace the power of the Boost MKII.
