Ever wonder why so many clean boosts lack effective tonal controls? So did we! That is why ThroBak Electronics developed the EQ Boost. In our opinion effective tone controls are essential in a clean boost. Different amplifier and guitar combinations can either become drastically darker or brighter when the signal is boosted with a clean boost.

The EQ Boost makes sure your tone is where you want it when boosted. Not too fat and not too thin. Or you can make it as fat or as thin as you like. In keeping with our signature sound philosophy we give you the choice. The extended frequency tone control let you fine tune your clean boost or lead boost. With as much as 10+db of boost the EQ Boost can be tweaked to act as a treble boost to drive your amp harder. Or use it for just a touch of clean boost for leads. You can even use the EQ Boost as a subtractive volume control. If you like to run your amp at full bore and just want to cut the volume for rhythm parts but don't want the tonal changes that come with rolling your guitar volume pot back. Just set the EQ Boost level a bit lower and adjust the bass and treble to get the tone you want for rhythm work.

The EQ boost is a transistor based circuit assuring a completely natural, amp like boost with none of the processed artifacts that IC based circuits have. Ultra low noise and quiet switching help make the EQ Boost the ultimate in clean boosts.

"Free Shipping" is for the continental USA only.

I do everything possible to get the package under a lb to ship first class, if it's over a lb I typically ship Priority. I try to use Reverb shipping whenever possible, so only options would be USPS/UPS/FedEx, and when shipping pedals, I ALWAYS use USPS unless you contact me prior and have a good reason not to. FedEx can sometimes be used on larger items (rack units, multiple large/heavy pedal purchases/large boxes). When shipping out of the US, I typically ship First class, unless it's over 2lb or over $400 which makes it have to ship Priority, so larger pedals will have a much higher international shipping charge. I reuse boxes and packing supplies whenever possible to not only save costs but also reduce waste.

Will ship ASAP, usually within a 24 hour span unless I am out of town (which I will mention upon purchase and you can cancel the order if you like if I cannot get it shipped/to you fast enough). If there is something that comes up, I will stay in constant communication with you until it's resolved.

Return Policy

Return Window

This product can be returned within 3 days of receipt.

General Terms

Items must be returned in original, as-shipped condition with all original packaging and no signs of use. Buyer assumes responsibility for all return shipping costs unless the item was not received as described.


Buyer receives a full refund in their original payment method less any shipping costs and a 15% restocking fee.

Special Conditions

All items are tested, cleaned, and serviced upon arrival, listing, and will be retested again before being shipped out. Should an issue arise prior to shipping, you will be notified immediately. I do not (and will not) ship pedals with batteries.

I will answer all questions before you buy, give as honest of a description as possible, and make both parties as happy as can be. Always keep in mind Guitars were made to be played, and Pedals were made to live a life on the floor and be stepped on!

Please note and message me immediately if there is an unexpected issue I have not described in the listing. If an issue were to arise, I fully expect you to be willing to go through a troubleshooting process that can go as far as needing video of said issue. MANY MANY issues that have arose in the past turned out to be user setup/power errors/compatibility issues and had nothing to do with the pedal. PLEASE make sure you also try with everything isolated where it's just your guitar hooked up to your pedal, hooked up to your amp (i.e. no other pedals in the chain), and use isolated power. If the pedal takes a battery, please try it also with the battery and not a power supply to see if you are having the same issues. If it's "a little noisy" - try another power supply and/or cable as well. One spot and other daisy chain power supplies can often give power issues by sharing currents, so please be sure you are using isolated-non daisy chained power or the specific adapter given with the pedal (should there be one included).

Other returns are subject to a 15% restocking fee, and must be placed within 3 days on used items (7 if new). To return an item, please message me first to get return instructions, and from that point, there is a 10 day window where I must receive a return tracking number. If the item is not shipped within 10 days, there will be a $25 late fee in addition to the 15% restock fee.

I'm trying to avoid from instituting a no refund policy on vintage gear, so other than guaranteeing that it will not be DOA, ANY return on vintage gear is an automatic 15% restock fee. Any questions, please ask.

INTERNATIONAL BUYERS - NO NO NO I will not declare another amount other than what is the agreed upon price. No exceptions
What about international duties and taxes?
Importing duties and fees are the responsibility of the buyer. Be sure before agreeing to purchase an item that requires international shipping, that you are familiar with your country's customs and importing laws.

SC buyers - 6% sales tax required (sorry)
