SKU: N/A Category:


Peppermint & Little Black Booster 

A┬ácompact clean boost pedal with a minty clean boost. Use it to juice amps, other pedals, or to keep your signal going strong over long cable runs. The peppermint boost provides around 25dB of clean boost and at 1.5″ x 3.6″ (1590A size) is compact enough to fit on virtually any pedalboard.

The Little Black Booster has the same clean booster circuitry as our Peppermint Booster, but comes loaded with premium component upgrades, including a black enclosure, a premium soft click latching switch, Switchcraft USA jacks, and an aluminum control knob.

Booster Looper

Booster Looper is a true bypass pedal with a clean boost on the loop’s return. This pedal takes care of unwanted volume drops. This can be particularly useful for vintage pedals that drop your level when you engage them.

Tone Control + Clean Booster

The Saturnworks tone control + clean booster is a tiny pedal that lets you sculpt your tone. It also has a clean boost on tap to juice amps, other pedals, or keep your signal going strong over long cable runs.

The Saturnworks tone control + booster is based on the popular BMP tone circuit. The BMP tone circuit is a popular drop-in tone control for lots of boutique pedal projects. The only problem with the regular BMP is that, being passive, it has a noticeable volume drop. The Saturnworks tone pedal includes a built-in clean boost that you can you use as a makeup gain stage to cure the volume drop. You can also use the volume knob to boost your signal and use the pedal as a clean booster. Our version also includes a second ‘presence’ control knob. The presence control gives you either a flatter EQ or the characteristic BMP mid-scoop.

You can use the tone/volume pedal as a standalone pedal in your regular signal path, or you can use it as a tone/volume controller for another device by putting both in the loop of a true bypass looper.

Black Booster + Tone Control 

The black booster features the same circuitry as the booster + tone control pedal–a tone control knob, a mid cut ‘presence’ knob, and a clean boost knob, but adds a true bypass switch, a powder coated black enclosure, and premium Switchcraft jacks.

Starting in May 2022, the black hermit booster/tone control is now featuring our soft click latching switch.  Our soft click latching switch is the highest quality and quietest mechanical latching switch money can buy. Made in small batches in Japan, the soft click switch is not only surprisingly smooth and quiet, it is rated for an astounding 200k actuations (standard switches are rated to around 10k).

The clean boost and tone control pedals are handcrafted with boutique grade components including:

  • High quality footswitches.
  • Rugged cast-aluminum enclosures.
  • Heavy duty Neutrik jacks or Lumberg jacks on the tone control/booster.
  • Handcrafted and bench-tested in California, USA.
  • Runs on standard 9v DC center-negative pedal power.

This pedal includes a 1-year limited warranty against manufacturing defects. See our FAQ page for warranty terms and conditions.
