Arteffect Orangen Tone Boost:
Built around a new old stock germanium transistor, the Orangen Tone Boost is a recreation of the legendary Orange Treble & Bass booster. The pedal feaures a special US-made transistor that has very high gain and low noise.
With its germanium "squish" and sweet harmonics, the Orangen Tone Boost delivers those much sought after tones: from a glassy top and shimmering presence to a smooth and dark tone – taking your rig right back to where electric guitar tones should be!
The Arteffect Orangen booster is both original sounding and road ready. Audio-grade precision components are used throughout the FR4 board. A high efficiency bright LED indicator makes it possible to cut current consumption down to a minimum to allow the longest battery life possible while enjoying a dependable and prominent indication you can always depend on while on stage. Arteffect's unique PPC power filtering circuit delivers extremely powerful hum filtering from your AC adaptor while minimizing power loss - Headroom is no longer compromised for the sake of hum-filtering!
Each Orangen Tone Boost is handcrafted by Tom & Dan of Arteffect in Haifa, Israel. As with all Arteffect products, the Orangen Tone Boost pedal is covered under Arteffect's two year manufacturer's warranty.

PLEASE NOTE: this pedal, like many vintage type germanium bosters and fuzzes, is internally positive-ground. It CANNOT share a daisy-chain power supply or an un-isolated power tap from a power brick with other pedals that are internally negative-ground (most pedals are neg.). It needs either a stand alone wall wart or an isolated tap (like the ones provided by the
Voodoo Lab pedal Power 2+.
REVIEWS & USER COMMENTS: HARMONY CENTRAL USER REVIEW 10/6/2007:
"if you have an old vox or any amp you want to push into break-up or distortion with tons of harmonics, a sound that can really stand out when you are playing with a band get this booster. i really like it and it stands out visually on my pedal board as well!"
HARMONY CENTRAL USER REVIEW 4/10/2007:
"this thing sounds outstanding! i don't think i can stress this point enough but if you want a germanium tone get this booster and you will get that sound in a heartbeat! i like the fact i can also cut treble and not just boost like most other treble boosters do. there are so many boosters on the market today and it is impossible to test them all - luckily for me i hit jackpot with this one!"
HARMONY CENTRAL USER REVIEW 3/8/2007:
"I have had 2 rangemasters. This thing is quieter and sounds as good as either. All treble boosters sound slightly different, but it really is as good as you will get anywhere."
