65 Amps Colour Boost · Guitar Effect

Mid-60s when the British Blues Rock came out with bands such as the Yardbirds, Cream and The Who, the guitarists of that time looked for opportunities to" blow" their amps for more distortion. A variant were Fuzzboxes - another way was to use a treble booster. These simple pedals - a transistor and a handful of components - raise the high frequencies and the level, so that the downstream Amp saturated faster . The most prominent representative of this genre was the legendary Dallas Arbiter Rangemaster - made famous by Rory Gallagher and Brian May. 65 Amps has a modern high-end precious variant of this effect type in the program: the Colour Boost.. Only selected components used to reduce background noise.voicing switches, with which the 4 mid areas can be selected. Like all Treble boosters, the degree of overdrive the amp can be regulated with the volume knob of the guitar. The sound is wonderfully glassy and clean with no appreciable loss of volume.

My main pedal

Danny on 29.11.2017

I've had the Colourboost for several years now, it's the older blue version and I can't live without it now. It took me a while to bond with it but the more you play it and get to understand it the better if gets, it's my most rewarding pedal. It's great at any volume but shines with the amp at more dynamic volume levels. I also have the Analogman Beano boost with a white dot NKT275 which is also awesome but it pales in comparison to the colourboost. I'm not sure what the transistor in this is but it's got way more range and rawness than the Beano yet is so sweet tonally. It will do everything from a clean jangly vox chime through to a thick fuzz tone depending on how your guitar volume is adjusted. If you don't already know, this is the key to germanium treble boosters and fuzzes - adjusting your guitars volume. It's really solid and well made, batteries last forever in it and I know it's sacrilege but it sounds just as good with the power supply as with the battery which is handy if you want to put it on a pedalboard.
