    I have an Orange AD-30, a Budda SD 18 and a Hayseed on the way. I think all three would benefit from a treble booster at times. Who makes the best/ a really good one?

    Don Butler built a good one under the Toneman brand but I think he's gone off the radar due to parts shortages or similar. I know he did a collaborative RM with 65 Amps called the Colour Boost as well. I have one of these and it's fantastic. There may be a few of these still kicking around if you're lucky. Better than the half dozen BSM's that I also have IMO.

    Discofreq's site lists a huge line-up of Rangemaster type pedals. He or the respective pedals' users would be able to give you the low-down, I'm sure.

    You're right though. All of the amps you have coming will love a Treblebooster. Have fun. :)

    Also, I noticed a real one for sale. A tad pricey though.

    I have been through quite a few of them - the Analogman, Retroman, and Thobak are all winners in my book. I currently am using a Hombru Range Booster on my board with really good success.

    I've got my eyes set on either the MJM RM Booster (well, really I have my eyes set on every product MJM makes) or the BYOC TriBoost (the prior parenthetical comment applies here too).

    Ive been using the D*A*M Red Rooster for three yrs now and I dont know how I got by without it for all those years.


    Im a Les Paul man and my first choice amp is a '66 Vox AC30 TB the Rooster is just perfect with this and the Les Paul.

    Its equally incredible with my 1964 Marshall Lead&Bass 50 watt top(Basicly a 1986 circuit).
    The upper mid/treble boost makes it sound like the later split cathode '69 circuit, as the 1964 and 1986 circuit is shared cathode, I could swear Jimmy Page used something like this on stuff like Heartbreaker, cause the toneof the D*A*M pushing the Marshall into sweet gain, is so reminisent of that sound, all guess work of course but thats my impression.

    I know the D*A*M stuff is pricey but its been so worth it to me, great investment, that you'd always make your money back on if you had to sell

    the best treble booster I found was the treble boost side on a boss cs-1 with both knobs clockwise.-I've tried most of the boteek boosters.

    I really like my AM Beano boost. I have a Java that will be up for sale soon as it is just too noisy. I am on the list for a DAM Red Rooster which I have high hopes for. The Beano is the most easily available and very close to the original wiring.

    analogman Beano Boost - or if you can, an analogman Sunlion - get the Beano Boost with some Sunface, all NKT style!


    cheers,

    i've been very happy with my AM Beano Boost as well. it's reasonably priced, built like a tank and sounds great. would love to try out a DAM Red Rooster, but it's kinda pricey....

    I've gone through I think 10 TB's. I believe I have 4 left. My fav at the moment is the Retroman Beano. I will say there are many really good ones like the Scot 60 that don't get the chatter here.
