Our Silicon Boost is based on the early treble boosters that were fitted with a single silicon transistor. This version adds a Level knob for controlling the amount of desired boost. It also features a Range knob for subtly tweaking the boosted frequencies; it goes from a full on treble boost setting to a more midrangy tone, making it much more versatile than the earlier incarnations.
For this pedal, we have sourced an amazing stock of rare and highly sought after NOS components; some amazing NOS Mullard Tropical Fish and Philips capacitors, and a highly sought after National Semiconductor 2N4061 silicon transistor.
We follow our same tradition of extreme attention to detail when putting these pedals together. Every component used is of the highest quality, with absolutely no compromise. The circuit is also housed in a high quality aluminium enclosure, professionally powder coated to our exact specification.
Please note: the product’s image shows some of the optional features, which won’t be included unless these are purchased with the pedal. Also, please refer to the “Options Explained” section to see the selection of enclosure colours we stock.
