Could Darkglass B7K be a clean boost?

    When the blend on minimum, the sound is full clean signal with EQ boost, but the level does'nt work.
    Could I use B7K as a clean boost? How?

    Yes, it sure can be. I use mine as a clean preamp and it boosts/can boost the signal quite a bit.

    You need to blend the affected signal, you can't boost the clean one. You can however make the affected tone clean.

    +1 you can't actually boost without having at least a touch of the effect signal in the mix

    Not quite true, per the Darkglass megathread from about Page 27...

    With the EQ's at noon, they are unity gain. Below straight up, they attenuate, but turned up from there, they boost.

    There is a substantial amount of boost available just from the EQ, and the EQ is effective even with the Blend at 0.

    yes that's a good point, forgot about that! but really with the blend super low you can get an ALMOST clean boost anyway :)
