The Rangemaster treble booster

The legendary Rangemaster effect. At the time, that is the end of the ’60s, the amplifiers are not prepared to distortion. I prefer to have a nice voice, faithfully reproduce the sound of the guitar. Of course, it was possible to overdrive when the guitar was full volume. If an external device,…
