The 0xEAE Boost is the first entry in a new pedal series developed in conjunction with the design collective Obstructures.

The 0xEAE collaboration began as an indestructible enclosure created in the distinct, utilitarian-yet-elevated visual language of Obstructures, culminating in a neo-brutalist homage to the iconic sloped fuzz enclosures of the 60s and 70s.

The exterior physical design informed the intent of the circuitry within: a versatile signal boost/overdrive with the potential for a razor-sharp treble response and excessively high output levels. The circuit itself is comprised of a discrete op amp gain stage with a treble boost in front, forming a densely textured upper midrange character laden with higher order intermodulation products. A mix of active and passive tone controls allows for dramatic alterations in sonic character. We also took extreme measures to engineer a high-quality power supply that is fully protected from excessive voltage, improper setup, and external interference.

The end result is an object that is maximally robust, designed for a lifetime on the road, on stage, and in the studio.
