Here is a nice deal on the BBE Bohemian Treble Boost Pedal. For those of you not familiar with a Treble Boost, this started with the Dallas Rangemaster which was originally designed to amplify low output pickups of the 60s and also enhancing the high end of the guitar spectrum. Back in the 60s, guitar had a low signal and would get dark/muddy. The Rangemaster was not a pedal, but something that would sit on a console or amp with a on/off toggle switch and potentiometer to increase the gain.
Since then, the circuit has been widely copied and included in different boosters (I actually owned the Analogman Beano Boost for a while). They can sound absolutely fantastic into a tube amp. The BBE Bohemian Treble Boost Pedal is a faithful reproduction of the Rangemaster!
Here is the official description:
BBE’s Bohemian Treble Boost pedal is patterned after a rare treble booster produced in the mid-’60s that gave many famous players, like Brian May, Tony Iommi, Marc Bolan and Rory Gallagher, the ability to add sustain and overdrive to their favorite guitar amplifier. The Bohemian is a faithful reproduction of the venerable Dallas Rangemaster treble booster, which was often paired with the Vox AC30TB guitar amplifier, in fact the standard combination for Queen’s Brian May was a Rangemaster run into an AC30TB.

So let’s talk about the deal. This deal is a Musician’s Friend Stupid Deal of the Day. The BBE Bohemian Treble Boost lists for $145, and is usually available for $100, but is currently on sale for a great price of $59.99 and ships for free. As you know the Stupid Deal of the Day is contingent on how many units are available, so if you’ve been looking for a great treble boost, jump on it before it’s too late!
