Boostron 3 Signed Scratch and Dent

$259.00 $229.00

Based Upon a Trio of Classic Designs
The NEW Mu-FX Boostron 3 is three pedals in one… and three you might never want to turn off!

Stage 1: Based upon an Alembic Stratoblaster clean boost
Stage 2: Based upon a Musitronics/Dan Armstrong Orange Squeezer compressor
Stage 3: Based upon a Pro Co RAT distortion
Check out sound clips at the bottom of this page!

The Alembic Stratoblaster is a FET preamp that provides a clean boost. The original product was a retrofit guitar input jack with the (battery powered) effect built in – controlled by an on/off switch and a small adjustable trim pot for the desired amount of gain. The Musitronics/Dan Armstrong Orange Squeezer is a very simple and distinctive sounding compressor. The original product was a small cube that plugged directly into your guitar (…unless you had a Strat!), powered by a 9V battery and was controlled by an on/off switch as well as an internal trim pot for setting the desired output level. The Pro Co RAT is an LM308 op-amp distortion that ranges from bluesy overdrive to full-out fuzzy distortion. The original product was a moderately sized effects pedal powered by a 9V battery.

The Mu-FX Boostron 3 provides added functionality to these classic effects all bundled in our “mini-mu” housing. Made in the USA, this new Mu-FX product combines visual and sonic cues from the past with a thoroughly modern, pedal board oriented approach.

Description

These units have very minor scratches or dents. Most units are blemished on the back of the case. There is no compromise to any of the functionality of the pedal and the faceplates are all in normal condition.

Controls:

  • BLASTER
    • Boost controls the output level of the effect
    • Blaster On/True-Bypass switch determines whether the effect is on or off (true-bypassed)
    • LED indicates volume by brightness
    • Bright controls the amount of treble boost
  • SQUEEZER
    • Juice controls the input level to compressor (the amount of “squash” to the signal)
    • Output controls the output level of the compressed signal
  • SLACKER
    • Gain controls the amount of gain in the distortion circuit
    • Bass Flat/-/+ Switch
      • Flat position is the normal tonality of distortion circuit
      • – position cuts bass frequencies from the distortion circuit
      • + position boosts bass frequencies to the distortion circuit
    • Level controls the output level of the distorted signal
    • Comp/Exp/Dist Mode Switch
      • Comp – 2 diode symmetrical distortion (a “limiting” distortion)
      • Exp – Single diode asymmetrical distortion (provides more headroom for dynamics)
      • Dist – LED + Single diode distortion
  • SQUEEZER footswitch determines whether the effect is on or off (true-bypassed)
    • LED
      • Red – Off
      • Blue – On
  • SLACKER footswitch determines whether the effect is on or off (true-bypassed)
