Catalinbread has been building the Super Chili Picoso for the past 10 years solid.
For good reason, based on the famous Jack Orman MOSFET boost, it is highly regarded by musicians worldwide.
Needless to say, it has a running start in terms of sonic quality. It doesn't suffer from the hashy unmusical qualities of an opamp boost or brittleness of a poorly tuned bipolar boost.
Catalinbread refined Orman's circuit employing top notch components, but not just because the parts were expensive, but because they were the right parts to their ears. Thus the Super Chili Picoso is a satisfying to play musical device that enhances your playing without getting in the way of creativity.
