All these OD threads got me thinking. Saw a mention of the TC spark.

Is there any audible difference between these 2 besides the extra 6db of boost that nobody would ever need?

Ok I had both and I found the mini was very noisy so I returned it for the full size model, no noise. I liked having some eq options as well. So for me the full size was better than the mini.. others may disagree.

I run run the big Spark up front as a TS OD and increase some bass back in and I rub the small Spark in my FX loop for a solo volume boost. Little Spark is quiet in my loop. My Big Spark is pretty damn quiet overall.

Go for the full size. The EQ is worth the extra..

If you want a single knobber, the Xotic EP is way better.

Tbh just wanted to try something different/good and take advantage of SW sales and credit. Using a maxon 808 currently but always like a good boost.

I like the Zvex SHO clones I build for a loop master boost.
