NW Boost




Portland, Oregon is our home. We love it here. Why? For a lot of reasons. We have some of the most beautiful scenery coupled with one of the most eclectic music scenes in the country. It’s weird here. We want to celebrate that by dedicating an equally interesting piece of equipment to it.

So, here’s a BOOST.

This effect was created before we had the company name. Before the fuzz, or the amp, or even the logo….It existed in our hearts. The BOOST combines JFET, MOSFET and GERMANIUM technology to achieve some of the most useful and interesting tones ever heard from a drive pedal.

The Texture knob is a bias control for the first gain stage. It is designed to add a bit of germanium grittiness that so many enjoy. With help from some JFETS, the signal is then routed to our tone stack. With the sweep of a knob you get a bassy and dark or chimey and bright. Finally, GAIN. This device will easily push the front end of any amp into clipping.

We couldn’t be happier about it. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
