Custom 77 out of France is one of my favorite builders that definitely deserve some great attention. We had the opportunity to demo a couple of their pedals in the past (King for a Day Booster and the Push Me Pull Me Overdrive) and they’re both well built, and sound absolutely great. They definitely paid attention to the *core* tone – by effecting it but not altering the original singal. They also do a great job providing various tonal options, that frankly, all sound great.
Today, I’m super excited to give away (actually bummed that I have to give it away and not keep it for myself) the King for a Day Booster. For those of you not familiar with the King for a Day booster, check out this review post for full details and audio sample and video. In a nutshell, it’s a treble booster – in the same vain as the Dallas Rangemaster and Beano type boosts. They get stinky and are absolutely great for awesome lead tones or to get that great medium-grit crunch (you can get some classic AC/DC rhythm tones all day long with this guy). Normally, a treble boost has one knob and a dream. Possibly a 3 position switch for tone voicings and that’s about it. With the King for a Day you get some more control to really dial in what you want – Level, Hi-Cut and Voice. I like the fact that these are all controlled with potentiometers vs. toggle switches (specifically with the voice control). It also has a buffer and ground lift on/off options as well.
