    Do you think these guys make the best treble boosters ? http://www.treblebooster.net/

    Have you ever compare a BSM booster with the beano and the java

    I have the Xotic RC booster which have treble and bass but i think treble boosters are much different

    Does anyone knows what type of [FONT=Verdana,Arial,Helvetica][FONT=Verdana,Arial,Helvetica]transistors has the RC booster inside ?

    Thanks

    Out of all the current production treble boosters i found Don Butlers Rangmaster the best out there. The Cornish TB-83 is THE BEST however. I've tried all of the above and nothing compares.

    I just check the Cornish TB-83 it is very expensive and there is no switcher
    for middle and bass frequencies

    Still the best tho :D

    BTW a treble booster is slightly different from a clean boost like the Katana...

    I don't see the katana ever being mentioned in this thread aside from your post.

    But the java is a really good treble booster, from my experiences.

    Get a TB83 Extra or the Tone Man. Seriously, i've done them all...and if price and the switch is the issue the Tone Man is the way to go, but...if it's tone...Cornish is the best.

    I'm going to disagree here. The Rangemaster is such a simple circuit that this mostly comes down to individual taste. You may prefer one or another (which is how I ended up with more than one!), but so long as it's built well there's really no better/worse.

    That said, the Tone Man is certainly one of the good 'uns. No personal experience with the cornish but I imagine it's no slouch either. I do think the Beano's an excellent choice for a first step into the Rangemaster category - the switch adds versatility and is really useful when switching between single-coils and humbuckers.

    I'd really like to try the Phoenix and the /13...

    The AC is your typical overdrive pedal where as the RC is just a simple clean boost. You could buy the AC, RC and a treble booster and have three very different pedals.

    +1

    A Rangemaster is a Rangemaster - it uses a Ge transistor to increase gain on higher frequencies.

    Nothing else is, including e.g. a boost that can increase treble or an EQ pedal set to boost volume and cut bass :nono:

    I had 2 BSM pedals, the OR and the HS. The nice thing about them is they pot the transistor and this really seems to cut down on the extranious noise when comparing them to other pedals of this type. The HS has a boatload of boost and sounds great when used with a Tweed deluxe and a strat.
