The MB-2 Midboost / Fat Control is an onboard guitar midboost / buffer which includes a wide variable gain mid frequency power booster control and a built-in low impedance buffer. The Fat Control boosts a wide mid frequency range for a more distinct natural musical frequency boost than all other mid controls. The frequencies selected give your guitar the best response and sustain possible.
I have three of these pedals, one on my pedal board, one for recording and this one for sale which was bought as a backup but I've never needed to use it. Only ever been tested and in mint condition. It requires an adapter which is included in the sale. This pedal really will make your single coil pickups sound like a humbucker and give you the fattest sounds, be it clean, overdrive or distortion! Save at least £60 on the price of a new one.
The MB-2B Midboost / Fat Control used with a stratocaster (single coil) type pickup produces a sound very similar to the old Gibson P90 pickup. Used with humbucking type pickups, the sound is transformed into that of super humbucking pickups. The MB-2B Midboost / Fat Control produces the sound equivalent of adding 5,000 feet of wire to your pickup, and at a turn of the knob the MB-2B Midboost / Fat Control will respond by adding any amount of midboost you desire.
There is one control on the unit: Flat / Fat, plus a foot switch to bypass the effect, and an LED to indicate effect operation.
Flat/fat affects the midboost / buffer which includes a wide variable gain mid-frequency power booster control and a built-in low impedance buffer.
Inputs/outputs: there is a 1/4" input jack on the right-hand side of the pedal, and a 1/4" output jack on the left-hand side, with a battery switch on the input jack.
Power supply: 9 volts DC, internal or external. Internal using a 9 volt battery (for battery access, remove the four screws on the sides of the unit and pull apart). WARNING: If battery drops below 7 volts, noise will occur. External using a 9 volt regulated power supply, mini-plug, tip positive.
