Friedman Buxom Boost Pedal
Built in the USA
The Friedman Buxom Boost may be the most powerful tonal solution you ever put on your pedalboard. Like its namesake amp head, this pedal pushes a pure, clean signal to conjure the absolute most from your tone. Turning the boost control is your ticket to volume increase, pushing the front of your amp for thick harmonic overdrive, or balancing between two guitars with varying output. Whether you're after a tone tailored by its active mid, treble, and bass controls or the pedal's ability to achieve total transparency - thanks to its onboard EQ Bypass switch - it's all in there. We've even added a useful tight control for reigning in your tube amp's bottom end when boosted. As expected, every Buxom Boost pedal is crafted with the attention to detail and fine ear for tone that comes with Dave Friedman's name.
Your tone, just more of it. Just like the Friedman Buxom Betty amp head, the Buxom Boost sings with a completely clean tone that makes every nuance of your performance shine though. Simply flip the pedal's onboard EQ Bypass switch and you have a completely transparent signal, adding muscle to your guitar without ever changing its fundamental character.
Tuned for your rig. Though the Buxom Boost can be tonally invisible, its active 3-band EQ and powerful Tight control enables it to be anything but. With a stomp of a switch, you're able to balance the voice and output of two different guitars or push certain frequencies for a solo tone that cuts. With the Buxom Boost's high-quality components, you'll be astounded at how well it works for fine tuning your acoustic-electric guitar's plugged-in voice.

ROOTS IN DETROIT
David Friedman was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan. On a recent trip home, the Friedman crew shot some footage, we’d like to share with you. Detroit is a city with a rich history, not exclusively, but especially, when it comes to music. So it’s no surprise that while growing up there David Friedman was inspired by Detroit’s heady music scene and it’s legacy. Detroit has been the seat for so many iconic musicians that represent a wealth of genres, from the soul and R&B artists that gave it the nickname Motown, to blues, punk, hip hop, pop, rock and it’s even been cited as the birthplace of (believe it or not) electronic dance music. I n fact, it’s impossible to talk about American music history without prominently featuring Detroit. In recent decades Detroit has fallen into decay and disrepair. But the heart and soul of Detroit are it’s people, who are unwavering in the task of rebuilding it, and who are certain that it can return to the greatness for which it was once known. This video includes shots of downtown Detroit, including the community-based art installation the Heidelberg project and , Motor City Guitar in Waterford, MI, which is owned by Dave’s childhood best friend. Beyond the images of deteriorating and forgotten places, you can see the gleam of hope, nowhere does it shine brighter than in Detroit. After all it’s the place whose motto, written in 1805, is: “Speramus meliora; resurget cineribus”.
