In May of 2009, we shipped our very first Koko Boost pedal. Koko’s unique design incorporated both a transparent clean boost and a selectable midrange boost which extended the range of your tube amplifier and Overdrive and/or Distortion pedals. Needless to say it wasn’t long before Koko was seen on the pedalboards of touring guitarists for it’s unique capabilities.
Koko Boost Reloaded is the result of countless hours of listening, testing, and modifying our original circuit to create a pedal with a smaller footprint, while simultaneously expanding its functionality and versatility. Thanks to our proprietary Multi-Function Technology, mf(x), switching between Koko’s two boosts has never been easier. Additionally, we have re-voiced the 3-position frequency switch and added +6dB more gain than our original Koko for increased harmonics and sustain.
Koko Reloaded is the ideal solution for players seeking a pedalboard friendly Clean/Mid Boost pedal to expand the range of pushed and overdriven tones from their amplifier and pedal setup.
Switch between Koko Reloaded’s two modes (clean and mid boost) in mid performance by pressing and holding the footswitch.
Koko Reloaded was engineered with independent Clean and Mid Boost controls resulting in the ability to fine-tune each mode.
RE-VOICED FREQUENCY SWITCH (THREE POSITION)
The Mid Boost frequencies have been optimized for a sweeter, more cutting tone, that never sounds harsh or fatiguing.
Left (Mids): Full and Smooth, tuned specifically to bring out your guitars natural midrange characteristics.
Middle (High Mids): Clear and articulate, voiced to cut through a mix for solo playing.
Right (Low Mids): Fat and Creamy, excellent for thickening up rhythm and lead tones.
mf(x) = MULTI-FUNCTION TECHNOLOGY
Created to enhance your overall playing experience, we developed Multi-Function Technology mf(x). mf(x) is a proprietary foot switch technology that enables you to seamlessly select between Koko Reloaded’s two distinct user modes, Clean and Mid, just by holding down it’s foot switch. Would you like to default to one mode in particular the next time you turn on Koko? Not a problem; mf(x) has built in memory that remembers your last mode choice.
Selectable Bypass Mode: Via an internal switch, you can choose to have Koko operate in true bypass, or buffered bypass modes.
FX Link: The FX Link connector allows the pedal’s switching function to be controlled from an external switch, pedal board, loop switcher, or any other custom interface. FX Link also provides the ability to power up in the On/Off state.
Low Battery Monitor: Koko Reloaded incorporates a unique battery monitor that alerts the user to low battery conditions. In addition, the battery monitor will automatically switch the pedal to True Bypass if the battery voltage is too low for the circuitry to correctly operate.
