In early 1984 BOSS released two strange new devices under the name "The Pocket Series". One of those devices was the FA-1 FET Preamp and it quickly found its rightful place among the legends of tone when The Edge of U2 used it on the recording of "Unforgettable Fire" as well as placing it in his following touring rigs. The Clover Preamp/Boost is JHS' faithful interpretation of the FA-1 but with several additional features that they believe make this amazing circuit even better. You won't want to be without your lucky tone-shaper at any gig! The Clover is an end all preamplifier / boost circuit for any electric, acoustic, or bass player. The EQ is simple, powerful and doesn't allow a bad sound. While the Clover excels at being a preamp / boost for dirt pedals, the magic is in pushing your tube amplifier into natural overdrive. The EQ lets you hit the exact spot that your amp is naturally prone to give in at. Push your small wattage amp into natural rich overdrive and distortion or find sounds in your larger more powerful wattage amp that you have never heard before. Strat and Tele players can use the Clover to create extra punch, depth and dynamics that single coil pickups can't normally achieve, while Les Paul and humbucker players can find clarity, bite and definition galore! From country, rock, metal and even acoustic… The Clover covers every base. Find your unforgettable tone with the luck of the Clover!
