Deranged Master (Dallas Rangemaster Treble Booster)

Deranged Master, the Helix model of a Dallas Rangemaster Treble Booster

The Dallas Rangemaster Treble Booster was an effects unit made for guitarists in the 1960s. Its function was two-fold: to increase the signal strength of the guitar going into the amplifier, and to increase tones at the high end of the spectrum (a treble booster).

The need for a treble booster arose in the mid-1960s as British tube amplifiers such as the Vox AC30 or Marshall JTM45, tended to produce a slightly dark, muddy sound when overdriven, particularly when used with humbucking pickups. A pre-amplifier that also boosted treble proved a solution. Additionally the vintage components in the Rangemaster circuitry could add characteristic distortion and overtones to color the guitar sound, much in the way of the more modern overdrive pedals.

"WARNING! Like the real thing, this model can take your head off! Works best before a distorted amp" - Line 6

I accidentally created this pitch-shifting, time bending monster while working on a Shiva patch.
