Man oh man.  To say I've got something for you that may change your perspectives and make you think twice about how you plan and execute your pedal-board would not do this article justice. I've got a lot to say here, and I'll do my best to keep it as concise and direct as possible; with that said: I am CERTAIN some people are not gonna like what they read here.

At long last!  Our simple, highly-effective, and very powerful full range clean boost, the Boost Tiger (discontinued late 2014), factory schematic is now available for your use, mis-use and enjoyment.
