With just a volume and range knob, you will be amazed by sounds from this one pedal. Paired with any tube amp, you have at your feet one of the most versatile tone shaping tools available.
The volume knob gives you more than enough headroom to easily drive your amp into natural breakup but the range knob is where the magic is found. When turned to the left 50% you have Rangemaster/Treble Booster tones, and to the right 50% you have full range boost tones in the ranks of a LPB-1 power booster. The placement of this pedal can yield vastly different results. When you run the pedal after your overdrive or fuzz, it projects exactly what it hears and sends it soaring above the mix. If you run it before your dirt boxes, you can force them into rich harmonic saturation that will cause a permanent smile on your face. Either way you choose, the result is a booster that does its job so well you may never turn it off.
NOTE: No matter how temping it may seem, DO NOT play with the internal trim pot inside the pedal. We adjust that to a very specific voltage that makes the Banana Boost sound like we designed it. If you mess with it your warranty and tone will be voided.
This pedal requires standard 9V DC Negative power and measures 4.4"x2.3"x1"
Some early versions have no icon and mini green knobs.
Starting with the Ultimate Speaker Demo, an ever-increasing number of the GearTunes audio clips are being tracked using the Radial JCR Reamp. The Reamp was invented by my good friend and colleague John Cuniberti who engineered/co-produced many of Joe Satriani's most infamous recordings.
For GearTunes, reamping allows me to record a track where the guitar "hears" the amp in the room, but initially only the guitar or guitar and effects signal is recorded. This allows me to spend additional time perfecting amp tones and mic placement once I have the performance I'm looking for. One of the byproducts of this process is the creation of GearTunes DI Clips which enable you to play select guitars and effects through your amp by using your mobile device or computer as a reamp device.
For GearTunes DI Clips - and Gear Tune DI Clips ONLY (always found under the DI clips tab for gear that has one), you can play our guitar and effects through your amp. Simply use an unbalanced cable that terminates with an 1/8th inch jack on one end and a 1/4 inch jack on the other. Connect the 1/8th jack to the output of your mobile device or computer and the 1/4 inch jack into the front of your amp. Start off with your amp volume at zero and your mobile device (or computer) volume all the way up to ensure you hit the front end of the amp with enough signal, and then gradually increase the volume of the clean channel on your amp until you reach a level that is not capable of causing damage to your ears or equipment. GearTunes accepts no liability for the use, abuse or misuse of these clips, and playing them into your amp is done exclusively at your own risk.
I am tremendously excited about being able to share GearTunes DI Clips with you as you journey on your quest to find right gear for the music you play! Cheers ~ Doug:)
