ToneMaster - Germanium Booster (Rangemaster®)

Modified Dallas Rangemaster. The Tonemaster includes a tone control and very convenient power inverter section on a compact PCB. The power inverter section allows the Tonemaster to be daisy chained with other negative ground effects instead of requiring its on separate power source like a lot of positive ground & germanium transistor based effects require.

Dimensions: 25mm x 33mm
PCB Sizing: 1590a enclosure (no-special hardware required but compact dc jack will help) or larger

Please select the kit options you would like included with your PCB from the checkboxes above

•   PCB Components
"PCB Components" includes all onboard components you need to build the "Tonemaster" (resistors, capacitors, diode, chargepump). Battery snap is included as well as 6 lenghts of wire. Also includes, LED, current limiting resistor ("medium" brightness) and plastic bezel for mounting the led to an enclosure.

•   9mm Potentiometer
Add 9mm Alpha metal shaft potentiometers to your kit! Values included are from the Bill of Materials (link below).

•   Germanium Transistor Set

•   Mono Jacks (2 of)
!! Due to stock scarcity Nuetrik mono jacks may be sent in place of lumberg mono jacks !!
"Compact Mono Jacks (2of)" include 2 Lumberg compact mono jacks with your kit. These jacks are small in size, a good choice for tight builds and beginners but can be used for any build. Please note you will need a stereo jack if you plan to power your effect with a battery. (Stereo jacks are available in the hardware section of this store).

•   Miniature DC Jack

These DC jacks are very small and are suitable for any build not using a battery / battery switching. Especially good for 1590a builds as they are very compact.

•   Knobs
Davies 1900H Clone Knob

What else do i need to complete this project?
