Treble boost

Individually handmade in Europe this Treble Boost pedal has been carefully tested and built to bring you that authentic sound from the 60s and 70s. The three controls – Range, Shine, Body – give you a great range of sound and excellent control over your sound. Treble Boost pedals feature on many of the classic recordings from the 60s and 70s, heard on numerous lead guitar and even rhythm guitar. This pedal accurately captures that great vintage sound, letting your guitar cut to the front of the band when needed.

The circuitry on this pedal has been painstakingly tested again and again to achive the perfect treble boost sound, strong, bright and cutting without sounding rough or torn.

This pedal is a replica of the legendary Dallas Rangemaster treble booster unit. A type of BOOSTER, not really a distortion pedal nor a clean boost - it does modify your sound quite a bit. It excites certain frequencies and pushes your amp to allow it to create rich tube distortion. The pedal colours your tone, with a crunchy overdrive, boosting certain frequencies and warming the tone with the ultra rare NOS (New Old Stock) Mullard OC42 germanium transistor, like in the original pedal. It has a raw, open sound.

We complemented the original circuit with some useful functions. The Range pot functions like a gain pot. The Shine pot is a high frequency cut filter and with the Body pot you can change the type of the frequency boost (it is a simple a low frequency cut pot). Into the pedal we have built a special polarity change electronic circuit, so that you can set it in daisy chain with your another pedals.

True bypass.
