I have an ac30, and i need more gain. I have decided treble booster is the way to go.

so heres what ive been looking at...

BBE frequency boost <-- cheap, but lack of demos makes it hard to see how it sounds
Keeley Java boost <-- expensive, but sounds great
Throbak strangemaster <-- quite pricey. i have another pedal from Throbak, its great.
Throbak flashdrive <-- no germanium transistor, so its the odd one out
Home made treble booster <-- self explanatory
Edit: Fryer Brian may boost <-- not sure what model, or if they offer multiple models

so I guess I'm looking for a rangemaster-like clone. Switches and tone knobs don't impress me. true by-pass and ac option are both pluses. any other suggestions welcome. nothing over 300$ please.

heres a list of treble boosters, including home made ones, being sold on ebay-

no no no, i want natural amp drive. take your od pedal suggestions and leave. As for a straight up boost, no thanks. I specifically want high-med frequency boost, and a little bit of low cut. as for the two treble booster suggestions, i will check them out.

anybody know anything about the fryer brian may boosts?

EQ pedal?

I wouldn't call what we have here on the Bass Forum a mentality. It's more like the sharing part of an AA meeting.

you could try the byoc tri-boost if you want to have a go building your own pedal. its got a treble boost as one of the modes, so it might be something to look into.

i have a BBE treble booster and it's pretty cool. i haven't tried any of the other ones to compare, but it gives a nice boost.
