What bridges the gap between...

a treble booster and a fuzz face?
Both intended as germanium examples of their categories,
i love my london fuzz and sun face, and i think i've finally gotten the hang of the hbe germania, even if mostly in the hi fi, full frequency setting...
But, this leaves me wondering, is there anything that sits in between these two circuits?
I'm looking for something to use with an ac30 on the verge of breakup, where the fuzz face prefers the amp cleaner, and the treble booster lacks a little bit of fuzzy splatty goodness...i definitely need to be able to clean up with guitar volume knob...
so, anything out there that sounds like this?

Have you looked into the Catalinbread Naga Viper? It's a treble booster with the addition of a tone/frequency control of sorts and a gain knob. Between those and the traditional boost knob it's really versatile and can get super nasty...plus, a lot of people rave about how it sounds with an AC30.

Hey thanks, i just had a look at it, and it seems interesting, but it's still a treble booster, i guess i'm after a bit more dirt than a rangemaster...

Screwdriver maybe. It's a hybrid Ge Si circuit with a treble booster type stage I think. Read Skreddy's description. Cuts like a mother and full of tone for days.
