I offer to you the Germanium Boost guitar pedals. It is a Class A circuit designs that are hand wired and constructed like all Chandler products. It offers a large amount of high quality colored gain, selection of boost range, and three feedback settings. The Germanium Boost is reminiscent of our Germ Pre and Curvebender units. The intense sounding discrete amps and feedback settings are the heart of the units. As with the Germ Pre and Little Devil pres you can manufacture and enhance sounds easily and have a variety of sounds at your disposal. The three position feedback switch on each pedal is very much like having three different pedals and when combined with the boost range and gain allow for even more experimentation.
The Germanium Drive is really a germanium pedal like none you've used before. It has all the tone and color you would expect from germanium but none of the mud and none of the fat – only an intense colored germanium tone.
This pedal was inspired by our Germanium preamps and our work with
other germanium amplifiers, but has even more to it. The five feedback
selections on the Germanium Drive modify the tone, harmonic distortion
and clipping of the pedal and offer a nice range of uses from tighter,
lightly driven to slightly fuzzy to full on germanium hell!
