Not all boost pedals are created equal. Of course, they’re great for boosting volume to be heard, but some can do more than just increase your signal. For example, some boosts can start clipping into juiced-up drive if you turn them up enough, while others can be tailored to enhance your overall tone with onboard EQ. 

What if I told you Revv Amplification’s Tilt Boost can do all that and more? Session guitarist extraordinaire and influencer Shawn Tubbs stumbled into something good when he partnered with Revv Amplification to release his signature Shawn Tubbs Tilt Overdrive pedal, which featured dual footswitchable overdrive and boost.
