Williams OC81D Red Ranger - Special LTD Edition

- Germanium Treble Booster -

update: 1 Left,  please CONTACT me for more information.

 

This Special Edition Limited run of Ranger features an original 1960's Mullard OC81D Transistor, a 3-way Body Switch and Red Hammered Case.  After tinkering with the classic Range Master circuit a little, I came across a few OC81D's that sounded extra special in here.  They have more an OC71 vibe than OC44 and I've very slightly altered the Body switch to highlight those tones. 

Based on the original Range Master Treble Booster, this little box was the secret ingredient of many of the 1960's guitarists from the UK. It's sound is heard at its absolute best on early Eric Clapton recordings, most notably the Bluesbreaker album with John Mayall. Set your tube amp to the edge of breaking-up, just at that sweet spot, and dial in the The Ranger. The Ranger kicks the amp into tube heaven, highlighting the upper mids, giving all those Rory Gallagher, Eric Clapton tones we love. Dirty, raw and fiery but with that shimmer and sweet tone that also cleans up amazingly well with the guitar volume control.

This Special Edition Ranger is fitted with a 3-way switch that lets you choose between the normal, sweet sounding, upper mid boosted Range Master tone and 2 more alternatives of the original tone but with more body and thickness. This is a super useful switch that as well as offering a whole bigger range of tones from the pedal, also allows you to quickly and easily match the pedal with different amps and / or guitars. A really great addition to what I think is one of the best sounding pedals ever made.
