Lunastone upgrades Pusher pedal to Boost 18

Denmark’s Lunastone has upgraded its The Pusher overdrive pedal and given it a new name – the Boost 18.

Lunastone says The Pusher has been very successful for the company, but one wish from guitarists has been to not only being able ‘…to push their tone to the edge of the cliff, but beyond and off the cliff. With this valuable feedback from the field, Lunastone set out to meet this demand’.

The new Boost 18 that shares the same small footprint and tone of its predecessor but while The Pusher offered 15 dB of clean boost, as the name suggests, Boost 18 adds another three clicks to the table with its 18 dB of clean boost.

‘Boost 18 will deliver even more clean boost than The Pusher did, but of course it has the same sonic flavour,’ says Steen Grøntved, founder and Head Engineer of Lunastone Pedals. ‘Why would we change its ‘personality? Every guitarist we have heard back from loved the sound of the pedal, but some of them could use just a little more juice. Well, we hard you and that is exactly what we have managed to cram into Boost 18: The same non-transparent tone. I have deliberately tweaked it to add flavour, and as a result we have seen many players who actually uses The Pusher as an always-on preamp pedal, simply because they love the natural tube-like sound of it. Now they can continue to do so with Boost 18, but also get an additional kick when using it for boosting.’

No UK price was announced by the EU price will be EU109.
