Introduction
Your sound will be firing on all cylinders when you place the Rocktron Mega
Booster between your guitar and your amp to turn it into a sonic ballistic
missle!
The Rocktron Mega Booster not only provides up to 20dBu of gain, it can
also enhance the tonal response of your guitar with your amplifier.
The Mega Booster utilizes a singular Field Effect Transistor input that reacts
with your guitar pickups and individual playing nuances similar to the way a
tube does, thus enhancing your pickup articulation and harmonic content.
As an added bonus the gain stage is buffered, assuring that your tone is
maintained throughout your signal chain.
Part of the Rocktron Boutique Series of stomp boxes this pedal design comes
in a rugged metal chassis with eye popping retro custom design laser etched
artwork. This is a TRUE BYPASS pedal: when you turn it off…it is out of
your signal path!
To give your tone a blast of dynamic thrust, simply turn the MEGA BOOST
knob to find the setting that suits your signature sound. Experimenting with
different guitars and amps will lead you to tone heaven. For an additional
edge in chordal work or for enhanced articulation, we suggest using lower
settings of the MEGA BOOST control. For your solos or special effects that
you really want to “jump out” of the mix, try higher settings of the MEGA
BOOST control.
The MEGA BOOSTER pedal usually sounds better when placed before all
other stomp boxes in your signal chain. While it provides up to 20dB of
boost, different amplifiers with different settings may sound better while
implementing the MEGA BOOSTER.
The footswitch on the Mega Booster controls On/Off status (indicated by the
LED). This stomp box runs on a 9V Alkaline battery. You may also use the
Rocktron DC OnTap Universal Power Adaptor.

How to change the battery:
To change the battery, turn the pedal over and remove the 4 screws on the
bottom. Remove the back cover. Carefully remove the old battery and
replace it with a new 9V Alkaline battery. Replace battery in the same
area as the old battery was located. Place the back cover on the pedal and
re-insert the screws.
Save yourself tons of money in batteries by using the Rocktron DC OnTap
Universal Power Supply to power this pedal (sold seperately). The Rocktron
DC OnTap provides a constant flow of power to the pedal, unlike a battery
that will degrade over time. The Rocktron DC OnTap Univeral Power
Supply can also power up to 20 pedals and can be used with both 110V and
220V power sources.
