    The Mini is just a clean boost. shame they left out the gain knob and toggle switch. The big one is on my list to try out...

    Had and liked them both, to me they sounded like Spark goes from clean boost to light overdrive while Mojomojo goes from colored boost to light overdrive then to Muff kind of distortion as the drive is increased.

    I will have to get one eventually. I'm very happy with my OD choice right now and I don't see changing that any time soon. But for the right price I like to have a nice OD pedal at home to plug into when I don't want to hustle my board out.

    Here I made video using Spark, Gain is at 13 o’clock, Level 13 o’clock, Bass 12 o’clock, Treble 14 o’clock, switch is on clean setting.

    Song is from one popular bend in ex Yugoslavia called Idoli

    Oh no now I really don't know what to do. I've been loving my joyo ultimate drive until I broke it, so decided to spend a bit more on a real OCD or od glove. I never put the gain past 10 o'clock so only use for light OD for a little tubey character. Even though it doesn't lose lows I still like to blend clean to keep my thumbs(warwick not my hand) character and attack. The spark is now in the mix.......

    Thanks for the clarification chaps.
    Am I right in thinking the mooer pure boost is a clone of the big spark?

    Does anyone have a lead for the specific eq effects of the fat and mid switch positions? I'm looking for an od/boost that rolls off the lows while also boosting the low mids and I'm wondering if the Spark could do this with the bass turned counterclockwise while the switch is in the fat setting
