New for 2013! MINI BEANO BOOST
I am not a fan of tiny pedals as I have human size feet, but some people really like them. They are also great when using loop-based switchers. So Analog Alex built up some Mini Beano Boosts for a customer request. No room for a battery but they work fine on a good power supply. Also the ON/OFF volume pot is not available for the mini as there is no battery to save by turning it off.
We can sell them for the same price as the normal Beano with power jack. It's a little more labor but a little less cost in the box.
The Analog Man Beano Boost Pedal is a boost pedal based on the 1960s British Dallas Rangemaster, which was needed at the time to give a treble boost to the dark British amps. This allowed them to get a sound more in tune with the time, as guitars were starting to become a loud, bold, lead instrument. This effect pedal is a type of BOOSTER, not really a distortion pedal nor a clean boost- it does modify your sound quite a bit. It excites certain frequencies and pushes your amp to allow it to create rich tube distortion. The pedal colors your tone, with a crunchy overdrive, boosting certain frequencies, and warming the tone with NOS germanium transistors. It does not have a lot of compression and sustain like most OD pedals, but a more raw, open sound. This pedal has three tone settings from the tone switch- Center is a treble boost, the same as the original Dallas Rangemaster. UP is a fuller-frequency mid range boost (MID setting). Down is a LOW range, also quite a full frequency sound. The Beano Boost is spectacular into an amp that is already cranked up pretty well. It will also work well into a clean amp, but you probably need to turn the volume on the pedal up, to make the tone thicker by hitting the amp harder and making it work more.
