    Does anyone else with a pre - poweramp setup need to run a clean boost pedal to boost their signal for the poweramp? please let me know your pre - boost pedal combination.. :confused:

    some clean boost pedals I've been looking at are:

    out of those i've only tried the fat boost. it's cool but colors your tone fer sure. seymour duncan makes a pedal for about $100 us (maybe less) that's pretty transparent. i forget the name. one guy i know uses one with a power amp all the time.
