Both are passive, so they do not require a battery to power them. The small Black Ice Boost module is approximately 2/3 the size of a 9v battery, requiring no routing; the Distort is even smaller.

Guitar Bomb Verdict

The Boost and Distort offer a simple way to add extra guitar or bass effects to your instrument. Being battery-free is undoubtedly a bonus; they can be installed together if needed. Several wiring options also allow added switching options for more control over the overdrive and boost.

However, Black Ice products are incompatible with battery-powered active pickups so they won’t work for everyone. If you are happy wielding a soldering iron, they might be an easy modification for your guitar or bass.
