Analogman Beano Boost
Phoenix Custom Ranger
/13 Dyna Ranger
Tone Man Rangemaster
search will turn up plenty more that are well-liked
For Germanium based Analog Man Beano Boost (NKT-275)or Tone Man Rangemaster (OC-44)
For silicon based (ie. later Brian May) the Phil Hillborne Fat Boost by Thunder Thomate is essential. A Plosive May Treble Booster is rare and awesome and the Cornish TB-83 Extra is stellar but very pricey.
Hartman Hartman Hartman Hartman Hartman
I have the Throbak Strangemaster.
HI big ++++++++ 1 on the Hartman, I have the treble boost and it great.
I would go with the Phoenix Custom.
There's a Cornish booster in the emporium right now... might be worth the old "do it once, and do it right" adage.
I have a Boost N' Buff in the Emporium, as well. 0 to 12db of clean boost, 13db to 35db of treble boost.
Makes the sounds that it ought to, less $$$.
[there's one in the emporium now, too]
Keeley JavaBoost too!
D*A*M Red Rooster, my favorite for the last four years now
Divided by 13 Dyna Ranger is good and versatile in terms of eq, as is the Java. I think the Dynas sounds a little better (purer?) to me.
Analogman Beano is killer!
BSM Treble Boosters from Germany. Bernd Meiser is obsessed with these things. He has about 15 variations on the theme, all relating to his favorite artists. Check out www.treblebooster.net.
my search began and ended with the am beano.
I have the Keeley Java Boost. If that gets a kick from the Skreddy Screw Driver I can get some Marshall-like Plexi-drive tones out of a cranked Fender HR Deville.
Java Boost for me as well. I'm addicted to mine!
