I'm looking to get something that will boost my sound during tapping sections and bass breaks where I really want to punch through. I want something that will do it relatively cleanly, because I'm not necessarily looking to change my tone, but I wouldn't mind having the option to tweak my sound even further for these sections. I'm looking at two pedals right now: the EBS MultiComp and the MXR Micro Amp. I know the MultiComp is a compressor pedal but I've heard it can provide a good clean boost. I've never used a compressor pedal so I don't know if that would help me or just sit there basically unused. The MXR looks like it will do exactly what I'm looking for and that only. What is really appealing to me about the EBS though is the fact that it has a tube simulator mode, which I think would work well with my Darkglass B7K. I'm just wondering if it would be overkill.
