Elixir Germanium Boost, batch of four.
Enclosures for prototyping Lenore, a Fuzz/Overdrive.
Currently listed for sale on reverb or via direct purchase are Elixir #’s 1-4.
The Elixir is a germanium boost based around the Dallas Rangemaster and the DAM Red Rooster. This circuit was used by the likes of Tony Iommi, Brian May, Ritchie Blackmore, Eric Clapton, and Marc Bolan.
The controls are simple. The right knob controls the boost level. The left knob allows you to dial in the frequencies being boosted. From traditional treble boost to full range boost in one sweep.
Throw this in front of an amp on the edge of breakup, use it to boost other effects, or just use it to shape your tone.
The units each contain a different transistor.
