Description & Specs

From Milkman:

The new Pop Top Boost from Milkman Sound takes its inspiration from the classic American recording consoles of the 1970s. We designed a discrete Op Amp which fits the standard 2520 footprint and put it into a modern pedal enclosure for use with guitar or any other instrument that uses 1/4" phone connectors.

The Pop Top takes power from a common 9V center negative pedal power supply and converts it to 36V of internal headroom (that's more than a tube has!). This unusually large amount of headroom has many practical uses ranging from a 30dB clean signal boost, a unity gain buffer with midrange focusing detail, or a line driver.

We designed the Pop Top to run at "unity gain" with the control set at zero. At unity you can hear the discrete op amp color and find a sweet spot without dropping any signal. There is enough headroom inside to use the Pop Top at the very end of a pedal chain even in tandem with other gain and boost pedals.

As a preamp, the Pop Top can enhance the subtle details of the source in the same way that a microphone preamp in a classic American recording console would. In the 1970s discrete op amps were designed to be used at the input and output stage to both preserve detail and slam magnetic tape with as much signal as was necessary to capture the sound. The Pop Top is designed to inspire some of that same magic and creativity from the world of classic record production but in a much more guitar friendly package.

We’re all musicians here at Chicago Music Exchange and we want you to love the gear you get from us. We understand that sometimes you get a piece of gear that doesn’t work out for you. That’s why we offer an easy return policy to take the stress out of purchasing from us.

If you decide you'd like to return an item, please contact your Sales Rep, fill out the Return Request form below, or give us a call.

If you placed your order on Amazon or eBay, we advise issuing the return request from your account on the platform of purchase - our Customer Service team will process a refund upon receipt of the item(s).

Most new items may be returned within 30 days of delivery and most vintage & used items may be returned within 3 days of delivery for a full refund, exchange, or store credit. Please pack the product safely for the journey back to us. If the product was shipped for free, the charge will be deducted from refund, unless the reason for the return is outside normal circumstances.

Please contact us as soon as possible if your order was received incorrectly, damaged, or defective. Most times we will give you an RA number (Return Authorization). Why is that number important? This will allow us to speed up the process of the return.

We reserve the right to charge a restocking fee based on the return condition. Some items we just can’t take back for returns, due to a one time function like strings or drums heads and other times it’s not sanitary to do so with microphones or harmonicas. If you aren’t sure if what you bought falls into a category like this, call us (773) 525-7773!

We strive to get your return processed quickly. Most of the time we have it done within two business days. Funds going back to credit cards usually takes two to four business days. CME strives to make sure all customers are happy with their experience. It is our priority to provide great service along with great gear. We always want to be helpful, and open to your feedback. Please let us know your thoughts! If you have any questions, we’re here for you!
