Sitek Nursie: Tricks With A Clean Level Booster

Welcome to Perky's Analog Gear Demos! Please subscribe for more nerdy videos of guitar gear.

Today folks, we're going to be using the Sitek Nursie to see how versatile a full-frequency 1-knob clean boost pedal can be. This one has a charge pump to run at 18v from a simple 9v power supply for extra-high headroom, meaning it stays clean whatever you decide to throw at it. Plus, it has a very clever footswitch that's both latching and momentary...meaning you can turn the pedal on 'traditionally'; but can also push and hold the footswitch to highlight certain passages, and when you release it, the pedal returns to being bypassed.

We'll be looking at how we can use it as a clean buffer, before an overdrive for a gain boost, after a gain stage for a volume boost, and (as they're more commonly used for) to push the tubes in an amp for extra volume and breakup.

What do you think? Deceivingly simple? Or would you want more functionality? Comment below!
