    This is a treble booster that is an exact replica of the old Dallas unit.
    People have been asking me to post a report after I got it, and it sounds tremendous!

    cool, but why not do a pedal?? I understand the desire to be vintage correct, but this is basically like buying a strat with a 3-way switch, no? i don't see any advantages to that kind of design.


    workmanship looks fantastic though.

    I do. For one, a pedal is designed AS a pedal so it can be turned on and off multiple times. This amp top unit was designed thusly because it is on all the time, on top of the amp and out of the way. Plus it free's up one more space on the 'board.

    I bought the pedal version from the same guy that made your amp-top unit. Mine has a rotary tone control to go from mid/treble to mid/full boost.

    Very good work, and it sounds awesome.

    Yeah, mine has one too, its on the front where the fuse went in the original, and a fat boost switch on the back. Does yours have the OC44
    (or equivalent?)

    Very nice...I have my AnalogMan Beano boost but I wouldn't mind having one in a table top unit like that..not sure why but still! Where could some one get something like that???

    Hey Emjee, could you maybe compare and contrast it to other treble boosts you have? Where does it rank on the totem pole in your opinion?

    For clarification, I'm one of the dorks who asked Emjee how the pedal turned out.
