    I’m usually not compelled to post about an incoming pedal, but I’m actually pretty excited about this one. Which is weird, because I’ve owned a beano boost before. What’s different this time around is now I’ve got different amps. Both my amps are Tweed fender style amps, before I had EL84 based amps.
    I recently picked up an Anolog Man Mini Chorus, and it kinda jogged my memory about the Beano Boost.
    I’m looking forward to seeing how the Beano Boost interacts with my Victoria Chicagolux in particular.

    Anyone here running a Treble Booster into a Tweed?

    Cheers, Otto.

    Congrats! A nice pedal indeed.

    My Treble Booster (Jext Van Telez) is pushing a SoloDallas Storm. The Storm then pushes a Catalinbread DLS III. I also have a Greer Pork & Beans Treble Booster which is very happening.

    A Beano into a tweed? Be careful, Otto! That combination is really addictive, so plan on giving yourself some extra playing time by taking a day or two off work, or maybe getting the house to yourself by inviting your wife to take your credit card to go shoe shopping.

    You might miss a meal or two as well because you won’t be able to put your guitar down!

    I bought my Beano a couple years ago, after I’d been plugging straight into tweeds (mostly a 5F1, 5E3, or a 5F4) for over 45 years. I am amazed at the extra life that the Beano breathes into them. Big improvements in both tone and touch-sensitivity! A Beano into a tweed is a whole new world.

    You’re in for a lot of fun!

    Beano’s into the right amp are the guitar tone equivalent of crack and heroin...... and a tweed is the right amp.

    Yep you are in for a great time.

    Agree with set time aside to get lost in amazing good times.

    Congrats.

    The Beano completely cuts through the bullish¡t of that whole “money can’t buy happiness” thing.
    I play a homebuilt tweed and have the mini chorus and Beano, and they’re glorious.

    I've used my Beano into my KR12 (5F6-A based) and it is glorious.

    I have a few Beano clips, but none into that amp unfortunately.

    Beano to cure your GAS? Whats after that? St Johns Wort to cure whatever that is a cure for?

    I don't like tweeds at all from my very limited experience with them. Farty and muddy to the point of ridiculousness, referring just to the one I played. But if I was forced to play a tweed, I don't think I could do it without a treble booster.

    The tweed deluxe can get loose on the bottom end, especially if you don’t know how to use them properly, but most of the other tweeds dont from my experience. Pretty silly to label all tweed amps that way.

    Agreed.

    I can understand that comment maybe towards a 5E3, but a Twin?

    I've plugged into my Tungsten Mosaic II with a Beano, and yes, it is good! I really like into my Avatar 45, which is a tweaked JTM 45 clone (a bit tighter bass). Of course, that style was derived from a tweed model, so, there ya go.

    Enjoy the Beano!

    Well maybe you should’ve been more specific to the model you played given there’s over 10 different Fender tweed models and many more if you count Gibson, Valco, etc amps from the same era as tweed amps

    Nobody is obliged to be an expert on tweeds even though this is tgp. So please don't should on me bro.

    It was a Clapton signature custom shop something or other tweed, supposedly a boutique amp with the very best parts and custom transformers, hand wired. Don't know model numbers. Was told he uses one, so was excited. Wasn't cheap.

    When I complained to the store owner that the amp seemed broken, he said "no that's just tweeds", which is why I thought I must not prefer tweeds then. You literally could not play an E chord with gain and hear the low notes. Tried other cabinets, one with tight Celestions. Again, I have very limited experience with anything tweed, and stated exactly how limited.
