JDM pedals is now offering customizable Germanium Rangemaster-style boost pedals starting at $89 incl. shipping.
The basic feature set is the “boost” control (naturally), and the “Range” control (taken from our JDM Tonemaster “EQ” control) which varies from a chunky, full range boost to a classic treble boost.
The really cool part is you pick your OC series vintage transistor – the finesse of an OC71? The Classic OC75? The crunchy OC44? We also have OC72, OC83, OC602, and OC602 in stock. Email for a full list of what else might be currently in stock.
The pedals are built battery-only, no power supply connection. Batteries will last YEARS in one of these as long as you disconnect the input cable when not in use (this disconnects the battery). We can add an optional power supply jack, but this circuit is the classic Rangemaster-style, and cannot be daisy-chained with other negative-ground pedals, it is positive ground. Trust us, battery is enough, and sounds best.
For an additional $15 we can add a 3-way top-cut switch (pictured above). This allows you to shave off some of the highest frequencies, which can sound a bit “harsh” or “brittle” depending on your amp/speakers. It’s a 3-position switch with center off. The other two positions we set to “just take off the edge” in one position (can help cut hiss or interference if you experience it at a gig). The second cut “warms up” the tone, just right for brighter American amps (Fender, Boogie…). Alternately, we can set the cut to go deeper, creating a prominent mid boost. You let us know, we customize.
