Red Ranger -- BEGINNER

Red Ranger selectable frequency booster


tonepad_redranger.pdf 77.0 KB-- Mucho Rojo, Rev.1.Feb.13.2005

Red Ranger US$ 5.00

Another booster, uses 3 transistors.

This is Dan Armstrong's Red Ranger booster with selectable frequency response, it was originally a plug in the guitar jack effect, not  a stompbox, like it's more famous brother the Orange Squeezer (also by Dan Armstrong).

Thanks to the guys at Home Wrecker  for their Red Ranger project page. Also to JD Sleep for drawing the schematic.

For offboard wiring instructions check the offboard wiring project page.
