Far out, that's super quick. I've got stuff I'm waiting for from Hawkes Bay & Auckland that was sent on 27th June and I am still waiting! :shock:


It's amazing how often you can get stuff from the other side of the world quicker than the other side of this country!

Pulled the trigger on a limited edition 'Rangemaster' for the AC30 :)

How close can we get to one of those in a pedal?

Pretty close according to TmcB, Silverpistol make the 'Ophidia' which is a NOS Germanium transistor pedal that falls into the Rangemaster ballpark. Was tossing up between that one and the one I ended up buying.

Think I'm still gonna grab one of his pedals though, just haven't decided which one yet

No, but similar by the sounds of it?

"The core in This Rangemaster Treble Booster is the rare Russian military Germanium transistor PNP MP21A. Hfe = 100 (like the OC44)."

That Pedal Show had given me the impression that the germanium transistors in treble boost circuits are all slightly individual, so you may find one pedal suits you more than another, or one might appeal in one application over another and vice versa.
Hence the treble booster geeks with many pedals supposedly of the same type.
I am happy to be corrected or educated though, I hope Toany chimes in (or maybe upper mids in? Possibly chunky bottom ends in?) with his expertise.
Or indeed any TB gurus out there?

Mate of mine has about a dozen Rangemaster clones. Each with its own quirks and character.
