Last updated on June 10, 2024 10:00 am Details


In this review post, we’re going to be discussing the TC Electronic Spark Mini Booster, including an overview of its unique features.

Product Description

Kick your playing into high gear with SPARK MINI BOOSTER, a stompbox-wonder for the initiated that features a completely clean boost with some serious tone enhancement under the hood once you really start cranking things.

•    A whopping 20 dB of boost
•    Revolutionary PrimeTime switching
•    Discrete Analog Circuit

With a full 20 dB of boost, SPARK MINI BOOSTER is a great clean booster. But that’s not all it does – keep turning that knob and it’ll start working its magic driving gear into peak performance! No matter what your style or setup, this musical miracle will maximize your potential – but let your core tone shine through completely unaltered.

PrimeTime is a radical new feature that is exciting for guitarists around the globe. Put simply, SPARK MINI BOOSTER instantly understands whether you want the pedal to be on permanently when you hit the footswitch, or just when you hold the footswitch down. This totally rocks for both ‘always-on’ and ‘emphasizing passages’ situations.

By adding a discrete, fully analog circuit, SPARK MINI BOOSTER adds a purely magical sense of life and excitement to your gear and tone. Each part of the circuit is carefully selected, from transistor to capacitor and from the resistor to the diode. What does that mean? The sweet, pure tone in all of its glory in an unparalleled clarity with zero coloration. Whether you want to make things sing or roar, this circuit ensures to maximize your tone.

Our Verdict

A tiny booster with an unique switching method that won’t mess with your tone. The Spark Mini also works well for pushing already overdriven amps and pedals – it’s excellent for that additional bit of drive for solos or heavier riffs. The PrimeTime changeover is also flawless. We couldn’t fool it no matter how hard we tried, and it always functioned the way we wanted it to.

A simple, clear booster like this is ideal for many players, regardless of how they are used. Some may miss the more tone possibilities found on the full-fat Spark, but with PrimeTime switching, TC has enabled easy versatility to give this Mini an advantage over its competitors.
