Avern #005 with NOS 2N1304 germanium transistor; in stock and ready to ship!

The Avern is full-range germanium boost, based on the classic Dallas Rangemaster circuit. Where the Rangemaster effectively shelves the lower guitar frequencies, however, the Avern offers a separate range control that progressively allows more lows to pass through the gain stage (boosted) and out to the amplifier. While not as effective when used with a clean amp, the Avern excels at pushing an amp that's already clipping into beautiful, grinding saturation across the entire frequency range. Couple it with a non-master-volume British amplifier for one of the greatest guitar tones of all time. Or use it to boost your favorite overdrive pedal.

As with the Eidolon, the Avern uses NOS transistors that are occasionally difficult to source, and each pedal is slightly different as a result. We look for European- and American-made germanium transistors with a very specific gain range and individually test each one for leakage and noise.

NOTE: Like most pedals derived from the Rangemaster circuit, the Avern does NOT like being positioned after a buffer in the signal chain. It functions as intended when it "sees" an impedance load directly from a guitar's pickups, and benefits from the added capacitance of a long instrument cable. Ideally, the Avern should be positioned at the very front of the pedal chain, followed by fuzz pedals like the Eidolon and Vicuna.
