Using all germanium transistors, the Germanium Preamp can be transformed from a boost to an overdrive, or a high gain distortion via a 3 way toggle switch
- Clean is just what the name describes; it’s the cleanest setting of the three, highly useful as a boost. The tone controls will allow you to shape it into a treble, mid or full range boost much like a Rangemaster.
- Overdrive mode bumps up the gain, providing a rich germanium driven tone that will still clean up well with your guitar’s volume.
- Distortion mode takes things a step further, adding more gain. Turn the bass up and treble down a hair and you’ll find yourself in fuzz territory with loads of sustain.
Built in a 125B sized enclosure with top mounted jacks.
Can be powered by battery or your typical negative center 2.1mm power supply
**The two trimpots inside are for biasing the transistors. They’re there to make fine tuning a little easier on my end. I don’t recommend adjusting them. **
