Based on the original Range Master Treble Booster, this little box was the secret ingredient of many of the 1960's guitarists from the UK. It's sound is heard at its absolute best on early Eric Clapton recordings, most notably the Bluesbreaker album with John Mayall. Set your tube amp to the edge of breaking-up, just at that sweet spot, and dial in the The Ranger. The Ranger kicks the amp into tube heaven, highlighting the upper mids, giving all those Rory Gallagher, Eric Clapton tones we love. Dirty, raw and fiery but with that shimmer and sweet tone that also cleans up amazingly well with the guitar volume control.
|The Williams Ranger features an original Mullard OC44, not an equivilant transistor as usually found on most other modern Range Master pedals. I also use 1960's Erie and Mullard capacitor's.|
