This is a single germanium full range booster, co-produced by famous Grammy Award winning producer-writer-guitarist, John Shanks. Based on the Dallas Rangemaster, used by big names like Brian May, Eric Clapton, Richie Blackmore, and Tony Iommi, Vemuram put in some tweaks with the advice of John which then added a Sola Sound Tone Bender Professional mmii vibe, which Jimmy Page used to rock in Led Zeppelin, giving the Shanks a hybrid characteristic.
This is a 2 germanium transistor late 60’s Fuzz Face like overdrive booster. The range of tone is very large and can go from a firm and gorgeous clean tone to an edgy crunch boost. On top of that, turning up the Fuzz and Bass will get you a thick Fuzz Face like distortion. It is very touch sensitive so picking strength and guitar volume play a large role in expressing different tones.
