STOMP AUDIO LABS AMP - TREBLE BOOSTER
Amp is our treble booster. In its heart lies a colossal germanium transistor whom spent decades forgotten in Ukraine just waiting for the time when it would finally be able to do something exciting with its life.
This transistor is pushed to the extreme with a simple and elegant circuit, resulting into a vintage, classic tone. It’s not evil, but it ain’t nice: In addition to increasing the volume, it fills the sound with character, creating a slight distortion, characteristic of this type of transistor. It also accentuates the highs, bringing a sound full of sparkle and with a lot of presence. It is a simple pedal, but it surely makes a difference.
At the end of the pedal chain it is a great volume booster for solos. But the colored tone also goes well with whatever comes after him – like fuzzes and tubes. If you place the Amp in front of a fuzz, it acts as a tone texture control to the other pedal. In front of a tube amp, besides increasing the volume and gain you will hear the valves roar in a completely unusual manner, different from whatever it is that you are used to.
We have fallen in love with the Amp’s germanium transistor (the same used in the Mother of fuzz). They are no longer manufactured. Thirty years ago, the Soviet scientists adopted the silicon material, which is more accurate and cheaper than germanium. How could they have known how much these transistors would be exquisite inside guitar pedals: The unpredictable behavior and undesirable characteristics that made them being discontinued for technological applications, which require fast, accurate and precise results are exactly the characteristics that make the Amp’s tone so interesting.
