We are delighted to announce the introduction of our new PASSIVE ‘Volumax’ volume booster and ‘Blacklab’ overdrive simulator. They are separate devices and available as such, but much more astonishing when fitted in tandem.

The ‘Volumax’ is a wholly passive volume boost of around 10% over the stock pickup output. It takes the anyway very powerful humbucker into ‘wall of sound’ territory and, if the ‘Blacklab’ is put onto that, a gigawatt amp, totally overdriven is the sonic result!

Newcomers to the electric guitar could well say “oh, but I can simply turn my amp up”, old timers would advise, nothing else duplicates that sound of a really powerful pickup.

A really good addition to any guitar becomes a genuine game changer to an instrument equipped with the enormously popular smaller single coil units. At the flick of a switch, the player enters humbucker country and if the ‘Blacklab’ tone modification has also been specified the guitars versatility increases exponentially. If you play such a guitar, you owe it to your music to have these options.

Any of our guitars, (and whisper it at present), basses, can be fitted with the ‘Volumax’ and/or ‘Blacklab’ options, either ordered with, or retro-fitted by ourselves. Switching arrangements depend on pickup configuration.

We must re-iterate, as players sampling the devices, find it hard to believe, they are totally passive.

  • No battery
  • No maintenance
  • Just sheer pleasure!

We will gladly retro-fit to any guitar, if compatible. Best in any case to telephone, so as to clarify switching arrangements.

Do please watch the video on our homepage, we are really pleased to carry it. Whilst a long time GSG owner, the video is totally unsolicited and neither cash or kind changed hands! That is, it is the genuine opinion of a very experienced Guitarist and others may have every confidence in his observations.
Once again, we express our sincere thanks to Steve for the trouble he has taken. We are sure it will be a great help to anyone considering the booster.
