Details

The Radial BigShot PB1 is a combination power booster and buffer designed to provide exceptional sonic performance for pedalboard users in a compact and simple package. It provides 15dB of boost, accessed using a guitar pick via a rear-mounted recessed control that is protected from foot stomp damage.


Unlike class-B preamps found in most pedals that color the tone and give buffers a bad name, the BigShot PB1 features 100% discreet class-A circuit topology for the utmost in sound quality. Class-A circuits are preferred due to reduced zero cross distortion, improved phase response and the resulting smooth Bessel curve of evenly cascading harmonics. This is augmented with Drag control, a variable load correction circuit that lets you dial in the perfect impedance to match the original tone and feel of your guitar and amp combination.

 

With the PB1, noise is reduced while performance is augmented. Long cable runs are finally possible. And when you hit the boost, you get smooth clean control like you never thought possible. The BigShot PB1 is likely the finest guitar power booster ever made.



Here are some different ways of incorporating the BigShot PB1 to your rig today!

 

BigShot PB1 - class-A power booster:

Straight ahead power booster for soloing or preamp overdrive. A Vintage Guitar magazine reviewer called the Radial VariBoost circuit 'the best sounding booster I have ever heard'.

 

In this setup:

Guitar goes into the PB1's INPUT jack
PB1 'OUTPUT' jack connects to amp input
Adjust the 'DRAG' and 'GAIN' controls to suit



BigShot PB1 - buffer with Drag control:

Drive all your effects without having them suck the life out of your guitar tone. Drag control lets you regain the correct amount of pickup loading.

 

In this setup:

Guitar goes into the PB1's INPUT jack
PB1 'OUTPUT' jack connects to effects chain input
Adjust the 'DRAG' and 'GAIN' controls to suit

 

BigShot PB1 - buffer combo with BigShot EFX:

Here, a BigShot EFX is added to switch in the effects as needed or mute the guitar signal for tuning. The PB1 drives the effects chain and the Drag control gives you back the tone you loose wih incorrect pickup loading.

 

In this setup:

Guitar goes into the PB1's INPUT jack
PB1 output to BigShot EFX input
EFX send/receive to effects loop and tuner



BigShot PB1 class-A power booster features:

Fully variable class-A power booster for solos

The buffer drives multiple pedals and long cables

Drag control load correction for natural tone

Ultra linear performance for natural boost

Compact and easy to use great for pedalboards

best booster pedal I've used Review by Rick_22

Was looking for a booster pedal to put at the end of my pedalboard train to make up for signal loss and I tried quite a few, but found that they altered my tone too much for my liking.
Radial really made an amazing pedal that fixes that tone-sucking impedance mismatch with the drag control--I am so happy to have the clean boost that I need and the drag control makes it really versatile for many different setups.
Really heavy duty metal- excellent build quality and feels like it will really last on the road.
If you have lots of effects on your pedalboard or do long cable runs this is the ticket! (Posted on 3/22/2012)
