Hello, friends!

I’ve bought the pedal “Boss MojoMojo” for my Cigar Box. It is my first time with an Overdrive and I can’t make it work as I would like… Any suggestions with the settings? (Drive, Bass, Treble…)

Thank you so much!

What pick up and amp are you using ? Post a Picture. The only MojoMojo I know of is a TC. Electronics. Get a Good clean tone out of your amp then engage the pedal everything at 12 o clock. Adjust from there . There are no magic settings .Every pedal and amp well behave differently What it comes down to,is your ability to dial in the sound . Hope this help ( maybe this is not the right pedal for  the sounds you are after )

I have an AER Compact 60. I'd like something like this (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VVp3eJ8YpJQ), but for the moment I've only got too dirty sound...

Adjust your amp for a clean sound, pedal drive  down 0 , level up 12 oclock .bass and treble 12 oclock . adjust from there. The drive will give you your dirt .

I'm going to try that, Thank you so much!

 Erasmo. This is the type of childish posting that should get people banned. 

Start with low gain on your amp as well. Looks like your amp has an effects loop you might want to try running the pedal through there as well.

Perfect! I'll try this! For the moment, I'm checking with the "selector voice" upward. It sounds a lot better. Thank you!

Erasmo is right on about adjusting your amp.

I'll add something to it. If you have volume and tone knobs on your guitar, always set them on 8 before you do the amp settings. This will give an advantage to get more volume or brighter tone when you need it. Something that's not going to happen if they're both on 10 all the time unless you like to walk over to the amp and turn it up frequently.

Great Paul! Thank you so much! 

With a lot of these new analog pedals the guitar volume knob as a lot to do with your over all overdrive. Depending on your pickups output. I would first try it drive at full. Turn your guitar volume down till you get the desired overdrive. Then set the drive at 12:00 or half and try it again. Then at 1/4. Each of these setting along with your guitar's pickup should produce the overdrive effect your looking for. I don't have this pedal so I'm not familiar with the tone controls. Try adjusting them at each different drive settings. 

You can also control the dirt by how hard you play. The softer you play the less distortion. 

Thanks! 

Finally, I got it:

Drive (10 o'clock). Bass (11 o'clock), Treble (12 o'clock), Gain (11 o'clock)

And Cigar Box: 

Volume: 4 or 5

Tone: 8

;).

Glad you got it sorted.
