Treble boost/Rangemaster is so its own thing that it's weird to put here, but I sure love both my Beano boost and my Blackstrap Electrik RM boosts.
EQD Plumes is excellent and, for the money, maybe unbeatable. Works with lots and lots of amps, and well as a proper overdrive too.
this board is for bringing the heavy. Wah is a Wilson Freaker, everything else should be pretty obvious. If I’m not using the Superplex, the flanger comes off and a Beano Boost goes on, but the boost on the Superplex comes pretty damn close.
Just got one of the new run...sounds awesome with my Superplex (when I don't want to bring the bigass footswitch for the amp's boost) and Germino 2204.
side note - if you play heavier rock styles and your bass player uses an SVT or similar tube amp, the Supaboost is KILLER for bass as well.
When I discovered treble boosters several years ago, that was the end of drive pedals for me.
I've owned roughly a zillion of them, but lately I've favored one from Blackstrap Electrik with an OC139 that is absolutely tops.
Still love my old Red Rooster too.
Came here to say treble booster. Not a fuzz, obviously, but does at least one thing people use fuzzes for - to jump out in a mix.
Also, while it’s not everyone’s favorite flavor, a Superfuzz sounds like a Superfuzz with basically any pickup and amp set anywhere from clean to filthy.
MKI's are the best. Lots of great builders, but let me give Matt at Blackstrap Electrik another shout.
Not sure about any of these other builders, but he for sure is easily reachable via Instagram (and I'm guessing his site)
and will work with you to give you the sort of Bender you want.
maybe when most guitarists think of Eddie Hazel, they think of the lyrical playing on "Maggot Brain."
I think of this one from the other side of the record.
Munehiro Narita - still killin' with Psychedelic Speed Freaks, too.
John McLaughlin usually plays straighter than is really my thing...
Mick Ronson the god. Cocked wah & MKI Bender forever.
As already mentioned, Ron Asheton's Superfuzz abuse and most disgusting wah combination.
Phil Manzanera is crazy on this. Africa? Africa. (mainly thanks to Robert Wyatt's drums.)
btw, what say you, fuzz nerds? is...
Using either a Metropoulos Superplex or a Tungsten Buckwheat, both already cranked up a good bit,
it's a treble booster, a good fuzz (either a MKI Tone Bender or a Superfuzz, usually), and then a tweakable full range boost.
Specifically, that's a Blackstrap Electrik Rangemaster, a BE "Ronson In...
Great stuff - the Sublime Frequencies and Sahel Sounds is outstanding. Sublime Freqs have a lot of great records of field recording stuff as well - more traditional.
Analog Africa and Awesome Tapes From Africa have also released a lot of great stuff the past decade, and Strut and Soundway...
