Ananashead Effects has unveiled the Range Booster, a vintage-leaning booster based on the 1966 Dallas Rangemaster circuit.

Key to this new design, however, is the inclusion of both germanium and silicon transistors. The former delivers classic treble booster sounds while the latter offers better signal-to-noise ratio. Toggling between the two is made simple with a two-way switch on the pedal face.

Only two other controls feature on the Range Booster: Boost and Range. The former boosts your signal, with emphasis on medium and high frequencies. Ananashead adds that this offers a raw sound, but with a “softness” that’s not unlike a cocked wah. The Range control, however, governs the frequency range, and is specifically useful for dialling in more lows into your tone.
