Our Germanium Boost takes you ever so close to the mojo of vintage germanium boosters (such as thew Dallas Rangemaster) units, but with a few improvements. To begin with, we wanted to make improvements to the voicing of the pedal; instead of picking a particular sound, we opted for 7 disctintive sounds that go from treble-focused, to mid-focused, and to bass-focused. This makes the pedal termendously versatile, and easier to match with a wide variety of amps. The 7 voicings are accessed through a stepped rotary switch. The effect is achieved using 7 separate high quality NOS capacitors, and not by simply adding a tone stack.
For this pedal, we have sourced an amazing stock of rare and highly sought after NOS components; some amazing NOS Mullard Tropical Fish and Philips capacitors, and an array of top grade NOS Mullard germanium transistors.
We follow our same tradition of extreme attention to detail when putting these pedals together. Every component used is of the highest quality, with absolutely no compromise. The circuit is also housed in a high quality aluminium enclosure, professionally powder coated to our exact specification.
Laurence (Wilmslow, UK) - Germanium Boost (Mullard OC141)
Just to let you know the pedal sounds fantastic - I’m really pleased with it. I’m using through my “Bluesbreaker” Marshall combo and it has absolutely nailed the sound I was looking for.
I’ve also got one of your germanium fuzz pedals which sounds brilliant too.
Keep up the good work!
