What We Think

The Rude Bomb rocks! It took all of 3 seconds to figure that one out. Doesn't sound tinny and bright like some boosters do. Also has a very good amount low-end response. This pedal is your tube amp's best friend!

The Rude Bomb from Flickinger Toneboxes is your tube amp's best friend! It is a booster pedal capable of a hefty amount of gain across the frequency spectrum. The low-end is nice and tight and the top end is thick without being tinny. The Rude is bomb is hand-wired using a MOSFET transistor for musical gain. Flickinger Toneboxes are handmade in Raleigh, NC by Rich Flickinger and available today at Sound Pure.

Manufacturer's Description from Flickinger

Using a single MOSFET transistor, your Rude Bomb Tone Box will boost your signal to give you sweet natural overdrive from your tube amplifier.  It is very transparent and tone neutral, adding just a touch of “rude” to your sound.


This controls the overall output volume of your Rude Bomb.  Be aware, this pedal is capable of a very large volume boost to your signal.  Make sure not to overload other effects or your amplifier!


Your Rude Bomb can use a standard 9V battery.  Also, the jack on the left sideaccepts a standard 2.1mm (BOSS type) AC adapter.  Make sure the center pin is negative.  Using the wrong polarity will not harm the pedal, however it will not function.
