"Crazy Loud, in a very good way, Adjustable Boost"

David P. Makowski /Reviewed 9/21/2016

I have always used the SPC for my Strat's SA pickup set for that mid-range boost. I met Kerry King and he showed me the AB on his B.C. Rich Guitar. I never even thought about using one until I talked to Kerry. This is what a "Boost" should do. The fact that you can easily control the level is key. I love it.

Double the amount of tones you get from your guitar

Felipe /Reviewed 1/6/2015

This came installed on my LTD F-200 I got in 2002, I've changed pickups, switches and hardware on that guitar and never had to replace the AB. And I don't even thing about taking it off.
I currently use 2 Humbuckers with coil splitting capabilities via a push/pull knob, so instead of 6 tones (Neck HB, HB+HB, Bridge HB, Neck SC, SC+SC, Bridge SC) out of that configuration I get 12 adding the Afterburner.
Clean, great overdrive, smooth transition from 0 to Full. Highly recommended.

Great boost. Is a bit much when clean, but be careful with how much gain you apply because it's super powerful.

There is no overdrive that I know of that holds a candle to this. It adds a totally new dimension to playing. my only regret is not putting it in all my guitars at once
