Vintage Germanium Boost
The Vintage Germanium Boost is our variation on the classic Rangemaster treble booster.
We took the original circuit and tweaked it:
First, we adapted it to be used with a standard 9V power supply (not a positive ground power supply) so that it can be used with virtually every other pedal on the market. We tried several different germanium transistors but we settled on the 2N1306 as the standard, but we can use virtually any NPN Germanium transistor. We are no longer offering NOS Soviet germanium transistors as an option.
Next, we added a range control to give you control of what frequencies are boosted. Turn it completely counterclockwise and you have the same frequency boost as the original Rangemaster. As you turn it clockwise more bass frequencies will be boosted until you reach full clockwise and all frequencies are boosted.
Great for adding some sparkle to your clean tone or pushing your amp into sweet overdrive.
Each pedal uses a professionally assembled PCB and is proudly assembled by hand in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
Other features include:
- Soft-touch relay true bypass for improved reliability
- Professional high quality FR4 PCB
- Powdercoated enclosure

The end result is high quality pedals that sound amazing, are consistent from pedal-to-pedal.
Each pedal comes with a 1 year warranty on parts and labour. Note that the warranty does not cover damage due to using an improper power supply or other misuse.
