Hi folks, my first post here. I' from Brazil and yes, I'm girl that loves electronic studies, stompboxes, etc.
So, we have here in Brazil some cool pedals,. Why not share with you guys??

The actual Fire Power Booster is a nice clean active Bass e Treble booster. Flat response with Bass e Treble at center and Booster at minimun adjust.
There's a switch to a Dirty mode - an overdrive for sure or a clean booster.

Thank you :oops:

Nope, there's not my design.
It's a reverse exercise that I've made for this pedal.

These Fire pedals are not boutique at all. They are assembled with cheap components... It's probably the brand I've fixed the most in my life. Their overdrive is a OCD clone with a slightly changed tone response... It's their only pedal that sounds good IMHO.

I don't have detected any kind of viruses. The file downloaded is only a pdf.

What didn't you like about the Fire Booster? Maybe the circuit could be modified? I wonder if it's worth to draw a vero layout around one TL074 (or maybe a RC4136?). It would be a very easy to build, but quite versatile pedal.
