The Clover is a reimagining of the short-lived FA-1 FET Boost/Preamp/EQ that Boss released as part of its pocket series in the '80s. The Clover promises to deliver the rich tone the original is known for, featuring controls for cutting or boosting bass and treble as well as a mid-range control for matching the pedal more easily with your guitar. It also features a global low-cut switch and a balanced XLR output for bassists and acoustic guitarists.
