True Bypass switching with minimal popping.
LED for on/off. NOS Germanium Transistor chosen for low noise and best tone. Three-way, short and sturdy toggle switch for tone selection:
Middle: "HI" Standard Dallas Rangemaster tone, treble enhanced.
Up: MIDs, more of a full range boost.
Down: LOW, full range sound with a bit more bassy setting.
Optional PUSH PULL volume pot (Add $15)allows two tone settings:
Down: "HI" Standard Dallas Rangemaster tone, treble enhanced.
Up: MIDS, more of a full range boost, great for Fender guitars!
* This can be reversed at order time if desired, or changed to Full and Bass settings.
Volume Control allows substantial boost.
Can boost volume quite a bit. Has about the same output level ON and OFF with the vol knob set at 9:00. At 11:00 there is about a 10dB boost, which sounds twice as loud. At 12:00 there is a 13dB boost, and up all the way is about an 18dB boost which is nearly twice as loud as it was at 11:00.
Durable Grey Hammertone (like original) powdercoated cast alloy case.
Silk Screened graphics as seen on the pedal at the very top of the page.
Circuit hand-wired point to point like the original. No circuit board used. I won't claim this is better than using a quality circuit board, but it works very well for this pedal. It does takes us more time to build them.
All can use a 9V Battery, a Boss style power jack is optional for $10.
This pedal uses only 5mA of power when on (LED) and barely any power when off (under .2mA!) so the battery will last hundreds of hours.
We usually run the BEANO BOOST directly into the input of your tube amp, with no buffers (i.e. tuners, or non-true bypass pedals) in the signal path. Most people have found they work best near the very beginning of your signal chain. Like the Fuzz Face, the Beano Boost MUST NOT have a buffered pedal in front of it. Something like a Boss pedal, even off, will make the Beano Boost sound VERY trebly and thin.
