If you want to take part in the workshop at Guitar Summit Mannheim this year (2019) and if you want to build this kit, order it here! We will bring the kit to the workshop. All parts needed for building a complete pedal is included. If you want to use your own tools, bring those. If not, you can borrow tools from us.
BYOC Germanium Boost kit is being built on Friday 27th Sep at the Guitar Summit Mannheim, between 14.00-18.00.
Fee for the workshop and the kit itself is included in the price. Entrance fee for the show is purchased separately.
Note: printed manuals to BYOC kits are not included. Print it yourself or read it online as you build!
A germanium boost based on the Dallas Rangemaster Treble Booster. The BYOC Germanium Boost kit still uses a PNP transistor, but the circuit has been modified to have a negative ground. This allows it to use a standard power supply and get along with all your other pedals. We added a 3-way EQ toggle switch: Mids, Full, and the traditional Treble boost. We’ve also added an internal trimpot so you can fine tune the bias of the transistor. The BYOC Germanium Boost kit comes with an NOS Germanium transistor. The brand and model of transistor may vary depending upon availability. Kits are currently shipping with VAL OC76 transistors.
Input impedance: 1M
Output impedance: 100k
Current draw at 9V: 3.5mA
