Ranger Danger is a Germanium boost with a unique tone control that gives it a far different sound than the Dallas Rangemaster that it is based on.
Many modern takes on the Rangemaster offer a selectable (often via 3-way toggle) boost frequency profile. And many of those sound absolutely fantastic, but I wanted to do something different with the Ranger Danger.
- New Old Stock (NOS) Germanium Russian military transistor
- Hand-made and hand-finished
- "FREQ." - The Frequency Knob controls the frequencies that are sent into the transistor to be boosted.
- Setting the Freq. knob to full counter-clockwise, high frequencies and low frequencies are emphasized, and the pedal mostly functions as a clean boost.
- As the Freq. knob is turned clockwise, mid frequencies are boosted, and the signal begins to distort. EQ profile is very mid-hump at full CCW
- "GAIN" - The Gain knob controls the amount of boost that is applied to the signal.
- Full CCW is complete signal cut
- How much boost is achieved at different settings of the GAIN knob is highly dependent on the FREQ. setting
- The higher the FREQ. setting, the more the GAIN knob will boost the signal
- "BASS BOOST" - The Bass Boost switch adds some bottom end to the boosted signal. Its effect is more apparent thigh higher the FREQ. setting.
- True Bypass
- Premium "Purple Multicolor-Sparkle" finish
- LED footswitch
- Powered by standard 9v center-negative power supply (not included)
