Phoenix Ranger

"The Ranger" is a treble/full range booster based on the legendary Dallas Rangemaster.

The original signal path is still there, unchanged, though the Ranger uses metal film resistors, which are less noisy than the original carbon resistors. The Dallas Rangemaster was not a stompbox, but was actually designed to sit on top of the amp. It had a toggle switch to turn it on or off. The Ranger basically takes the Rangemaster and puts it into stompbox form. If you are looking for a crystal clear boost pedal that will not affect your tone in any way, this ain't it! The Ranger uses a military spec CV7003 germanium transistor to boost your signal. It adds just a touch of that great sounding warmth and dirt to your tone, without being dirty enough to qualify as a fuzz or overdrive pedal. Use the Ranger to push your amp into natural tube overdrive and you won't need or want a distortion pedal! This pedal responds marvelously to the volume knob on your guitar. You can get clean tones by turning down to about 7 or so, and then bring the level back up for thick lead tones!

Leave it on for the entire gig - your tone will be marvelous! The "Cut" knob allows you to blend in a larger input capacitor which allows more low end into the signal. You can get any tone from the original treble boost of the Dallas Rangemaster to a full range boost that is great for Fender guitars and amps. This is not a tone circuit, just a simple way to give you some control over the frequency response of the effect.
