You may be thinking "Oh no, not another clean booster". If that is your thought right now, I don't blame you. If you are a stompbox junkie you probably know that there is no shortage of signal boosters out there. So what makes the Phat Phuk Hybrid Booster different? Well, a few things:

  • This booster was not made to be "transparent". It's not a JFET or MOSFET based booster. There are many fine boosters out there that are designed to be "transparent." If that's what you're after, the Phat Phuk may not be for you. A JFET is used in the Phat Phuk however, more on that below.
  • The Phat Phuk is not a clone of any other pedal.
  • The Phat Phuk is a JFET/germanium single circuit hybrid booster. There is a double booster I know of with two independent boosts, one being a germanium, one JFET based. It's actually a very fine pedal. Perhaps there is another single circuit JFET-germ booster out there, but I'm not aware of it.

Here's what the Phat Phuk Hybrid is: A germanium/JFET booster. A unique sounding pedal which adds a beautiful sheen to your guitar's top end and a bit of grit to the overall tone. You'll hear a light to medium emphasis on the hi-mids and a nice round boost to the lows. It's a fantastic pedal for situations where you want a lift in your overall level, during a chorus or bridge for example, with a bit of bawdy bump via the germanium transistor.

One nice feature is also the more modern JFET transistor at the input which keeps the pedal impedance-friendly when it comes to other pedals and/or active pickups. This helps the Phat Phuk to remain consistent whether you put a Strat in front of it, or an ESP.

Give the Phat Phuk a try! It's beauty is in it's simplicity, but you'll be surprised how often it's on!
