Boost: Rangemaster for Vox-like amps, and what for Fender-like amps?

AFAIK, Rangemaster clones (Java Boost, Beano, and so on) seem to work better with humbucker guitars into Vox (or derivates) amps.

What's the best counterpart for boosting Fender (blackfaces, tweeds, or even JMP/plexi Marshalls) gear?

I use my Beano into all kinds of amps...Fenders (tweed, brown and blackface) as well as an old Ampeg and an old Sound City and have also tried it with Mesa's, Marshalls, etc...

I love my D*A*M Red Rooster (rangemaster clone with Tweaks), into my Deluxe Reverb and my JCM2555SL. Sounds great with Matamps too.

Rangemasters are more than a boost. They add distortion harmonics and quite a profound tonal change in the highs.

If you have a Fender amp that you like the sound of, but want to kick it a little (or lot) harder, I would recommend the Barber Launch Pad for ultra fidelity boosting.



Dave Barber has a gain staging technique he uses with the Launch Pad called "Amp Cooking" that really works to make an amp bigger sounding and more expressive.

Here's the link:

A phenomenal sounding boost.

The RM Boost (now called the Dallas Boost) by MJM has a "dark" setting that is very nice into Fenders and has quite a bit more gain than most Rangemaster clones I have played. Right now one of my favorites.

The HBE Germania. Now it has a three position tone switch to help accommodate any amp.

I like a rangemaster (beano [sunlion]) into my silver face champ. A LOT. Not so much into my Twin (not at usable levels anyway).

+24 for Telenordia TA-24. I had it this week and I can't believe how good it is. :love:
