DenTone Electronics Rangemaster

This is a hand made clone of the classic Dallas Rangemaster Treble booster. Used by Clapton, Townsend, Iommi and many other greats.

This pedal is made with vintage and vintage like parts. Carbon comp resistors, tubular metalized polystyrene caps, NOS germanium transistor. Only the electrolytics are new, those don't age well so vintage would not be desirable.

If you have never used a Rangemaster before, you will be absolutely amazed at how "live" this will make your tube amp sound. One simple knob, but what a wide range of uses. Just add "sparkle" to your tone, overdrive the front end, or just warm and brighten things up. What an amazingly versatile pedal! Some things are considered classics for a reason.

This Rangemaster is even more versatile than the original. I've added a selectable input range so that it is really three boosters in one. In the first position, it is a straight Rangemaster treble booster. Second position gives midrange boost and the third position gives a full range boost.

This is built into a pro quality enclosure. I never use Printed Circuit Boards (PCBs) in my pedals. True bypass switching, so no tone sucking when it is off. 9V battery only, positive ground so no AC option. Battery included. Finest quality components used throughout.

It is wired point to point like a tube amp and uses vintage NOS components.

Ultra high end construction:

  • Virtually indestructible aluminum enclosure
  • Chickenhead knobs
  • Alpha potentiometers
  • Neutrik jacks
  • ElectroHarmonix 3PDT true bypass footswitch.

I think we are all aware that the highest quality tube amplifiers are wired in true point to point. From the earliest Fender and Marshall amps to modern "boutique" amps, the one thing in common to all is point to point wiring. No printed circuit boards.

But, point to point wired fuzz pedals are virtually non-existant. You can find pedals with printed circuit boards, perfboard, stripboard and other wiring methods, but not point to point. Why not? Perhaps it's just too time consuming and labor intensive for the average pedal builder.

But there are great reasons to use point to point. It is beautiful to look at. Just look at the pictures below. It is extremely rugged. This pedal could survive just about anything short of a nuclear explosion. This pedal will probably outlive it's owner. And finally, it just sounds incredible. I'll let the demo speak for itself there. There is an inexplicable mojo in this kind of construction that can be heard every time you plug it in.
