I don't know if treble boosters were, or were not used in the examples you mention but just do a search for trebles boosters.

There was a pretty good thread about them just the other day.

Toneman has a good product also. He is supposedly one of the first guys to do the rangemaster / treblebooster thing. I'm interested in the 65 amps version but the price is wow. The only thing stopping me from purchasing it is that thought in the back of my mind that it's only a treble booster but.......

Anyways, good luck.

P.S. at the bottom of the page are soundclips.

BSM would be a good one.
I use the OR and like it very much.
Bernd Meiser makes some incredible dead-on retro type effects.

The Jeff Beck "Wired" tone might be a different animal. I think Throbak and Proanalog both offer a powerdriver-type of od/boost that does that pretty well.

Unfortunately I haven't tried other models like the BSM, Beano etc..., but I can say that I like my Java Boost very much.
The toggle switch makes it a very versatile pedal.

+1 on the Java Boost. If I could only have one pedal, it probably would be the Java Boost.

Cheers,

I use the Hellbilly from Tone Factor. It's a germanium->silicon circuit, with the germanium up front for the sound and silicone in back to regulate output. With the tone knob all the way to the right, the pedal works like a Dallas Rangemaster. With the tone knob all the way to the left, it works like a Fuzz Face. Of course, you have all of the room in between. The box is only $120 (I think they're coming out with more crazy-paintjob models if you're into that) and covers the treble boost territory. The original Rangemaster I don't believe used silicon transistors, but I'm pretty sure that the later one used by Queen was a silicon model.

There are also Beano Boost, Java Boost, Time Machine Boost and a tone of Rangemaster copies (BSR?)...

My pedals were mentioned so here is a link to my site where I have sound clips of my Rangemaster, Overdriver, Fuzz Face and Tone Bender MKII Professional clones. All clips are done with the same guitars, amps and microphone so you can make a real comparison. www.throbak.com

I use the Hellbilly, but always in front of another OD like the Timmy to help shape it more. That Throbak Overdrive/Boost sounds awesome on it's own judging by the clips, IMO.

had the Java boost in the blue case, with the super limited chip. when you cranked it there was alot of white noise. i sent it back. i did like the center position on toggle switch, but still that white noise unless you kept the boost quite low. i'm going to try a analogman beano boost, hope it's quieter.

Pro Analog Top Boost if you can find one.
The D13 Dyna-Ranger is quite amazing too with 5 different settings.

I've had good results with the HBE Germania. This year, I discovered the Plosive Dual treble booster. It sounds every bit as good as the HBE, but it is footswitchable between the two modes instead of just using a mini toggle.

Check it out:

+1 I found a used proanalog topboost and think its great..he apparently doesnt make them any more but they seem to be the closest to the real deal from what I gather.. I played mine today for the 1st time with a '55 Tweed Deluxe and a Strat. Wow..sounded killer!
