Tyler Morris has been known to create personalised pedals for his high-profile clientele, which includes the likes of Aerosmith’s Brad Whitford, Joe Bonamassa and Bon Jovi’s Phil X. His company has now launched two handmade pedals which will be available for public sale: the Turbo Booster and Jimmy Vivino Turbo Booster.
Both pedals are designed to boost and distort your guitar signal to produce classic tones in the vein of Santana’s Black Magic Woman, The Beatles’ While My Guitar Gently Weeps and Queen’s Killer Queen.
The Turbo Booster, intended as an always-on effect, is touted to help you wring out more tube amp tone even at lower volumes. The Jimmy Vivino Turbo Booster, on the other hand, is tuned to the Conan guitarist’s favourite Turbo Booster setting. Both stompers sport a three-way mode switch and a single footswitch. They do not come with external knobs, a design element inspired by vintage treble boosters.
Hear these boosters in action below:
The Turbo Booster pre-orders at $149.99, and the Jimmy Vivino variant at $199.99. The latter’s first run will be limited to just 20 pieces, each sporting the signatures of Tyler Morris and Jimmy Vivino.
