    I started production of my OC44 Rangemaster clones this week and have a couple up for grabs. This pedal is a recreation of the original circuit and utilizes a genuine OC44 PNP germanium transistor.

    Price is $89.99 plus $4.99 s&h to the lower 48 states, s&h everywhere else is $14.00

    As of now I only have two available, they are both for sale on reverb as well. If youd like to purchase one PM me and we can make it happen.

    Here they are!

    From wikipedia

    "The Dallas Rangemaster Treble Booster was first made in the 1960's by Dallas Musical Ltd., incorporated in 1959. It made guitars and amplifiers under different brand names, including Dallas, Shaftesbury, and Rangemaster. The Rangemaster's engineer is unknown.

    The unit is simple, and consists of a grey metal box with an on/off switch, a potentiometer for the booster setting, and an in- and output. It is made to stand on top of an amplifier rather than on the floor. Its circuitry is simple, and contains (besides the potentiometer--usually 10K, sometimes 20K--and the on/off switch) only a germanium transistor, four capacitors, three resistors, and a battery. The transistor was a Mullard or unbranded OC44 or Mullard OC71.

    By the 1980s Treble Boosters had gone out of fashion. How many Rangemaster Treble Boosters were built is unknown. Due to limited supply on the second hand market they are collectible, even if the going rate is only a fraction of what it used to be in the mid-2000s. In Premier Guitar, Kenny Rardin describes his quest for one of the effects, which started with puzzlement over how Eric Clapton and Ritchie Blackmore achieved their tone; he spent years looking for a Rangemaster.

    Notable users include Rory Gallagher, Brian May and Tony Iommi.

    Rumours of Eric Clapton having used a Rangemaster Treble Booster during his stint with John Mayall's Blues Breakers have never been confirmed. Photos of the recording sessions of the "Blues Breakers With Eric Clapton" exist, but a Rangemaster Treble Booster is not visible in any of them. It is assumed the rumours started in the late 90's when clones of the Rangemaster Treble Booster began to appear."

    I got my pedal yesterday and super duper impressed. Playing my Les Paul Standard 80 going thru a Fender Blues Deluxe RI coupled with an Analog Man Ibanez TS-9/808 Silver Mods Overdrive Pedal or a Orange DT30H Dual Terror 30W Guitar Amp Head and Analog Man KOT v4 with High Gain option and I actually got a hard on from the tone!
