Secret weapon of ‘A list’ Irish and Brit rockers. Reissue of rare 1980’s ‘hidden gem’. Stellar boost of all frequencies plus clean pre amp with gobs of gain. Crisp clean tone with volume set at 50% or less. Hits amp for crunchy bite with volume past 50%. Don’t listen unless you want to own it. You will never part with this one.
With their die-cast steel construction and featuring high gloss ‘classic car’ finishes, the new superb range of Billionaire Pedals from Danelectro USA not only look the business, but also deliver tons of vintage tone in spades.
Go with a clean boost or turn it up through crunchy to singing sustain. Adjust high and low frequencies with the treble and bass knobs, cut what you want and boost the rest. The small toggle switch enables a low cut filter; try this with your setup and adjust for custom interaction that is right on the money. In a die cast case in vintage car finish the Billion Dollar Boost is not only sleek but also super durable.
The Billion Dollar Boost is a reissue of a rare 80’s ‘hidden gem’. Boosts all frequencies, plus provides pure pre-amp clean with lots of gain. Clean and crisp at 50% or less, but pushes the amp into crunchy bite at 50% or more, this pedal will become your secret weapon.
Power this puppy with a center negative DC 9V supply or use the Battery Billionaire Supply for that vintage 9V tone.
There is a two-band EQ and a high-pass filter switch which gently rolls off the deepest and chunkiest of the bass frequencies. The glossy paint job and rounded edges give it Dano’s usual wonky retro feel and don’t seem cheap at all, but the shape and color give the impression of the toe of a bowling shoe or a painted wooden clog. The power and in/out jacks are lined up on the top/back of the pedal. The ‘B’ on the face of the pedal lights up a light purple color when active. The pedal has a very small footprint and will easily fit in cases and gig bags.
