Boost options for a Para DI
I have had my Para DI for some time now and it's starting to get a bit more live use. I'm looking for a boost for solos playing in a duo My question is has anyone had any experience with putting some sort of boost in their set up. I've tried volume pedals , boost pedals in the effects loop but still not quite happy. Thinking of trying a GE-7. It goes before the eq of the DI when in the loop so not sure how it will interact.
Otherwise might be time to save for a Venue. (expensive in oz)
Any experience appreciated.

For use along with the Para DI, the Boss GE-7 is one I suggest for those who want a footswitch-controlled boost. It has an advantage of allowing you to boost(or cut) certain frequencies and tailor the tone of the boosted signal.
I've used an MXR MicroAmp in front of the Para DI, not in the effects loop. I just had to make sure that the MXR wouldn't clip the DI's input when it was boosted. It worked pretty well, for my setup at least.
