Mid Range Pedal

The only thing I know about is the mid range booster that replaces the middle knob on the Strat.

 

I suppose a 5- or 7-band EQ pedal would work?

Robert Keeley, who I dig more than AnalogMan (both are great, but Keeley seems to be more into the tone I'm after), also makes one: Time Machine Booster.

 

Man, that looks sweet!

 

Real nice :thu:

Has a lot more options than the one I posted and one of the channels is supposed to be modeled after the Rangemaster. Seems pretty awesome, pricey, but awesome

Did Clapton have a mid range pedal made for him? If so can someone provide me with the manufacturer or better yet a link?

Thanks,

Woof....

 

Yo Dog....LOL

 

I can't believe I just said that!!! LMAO!!

 

Clapton's sig Strat, and the one he actually plays has a mid boost built in to it, as Geoff said. Other than that, I'm not sure he uses much....a wah, the real live Lesley cab, and the Fender Tweed Twin re-issues. I don't doubt that the Twins may be modded in some way, but I don't know that for sure.

Thanks all... I was told there was a certain midrange pedal built for him but the signature model makes more sense... Anyway you hang it it's outa' my price range... I'll just live with my Strat the way it is and like it... (I do like it anyway) I'm learning, from insperation on the cleanest guitar thread,and the vid of EC doing "Old Love" that Doc posted, how to get some nice natural tones from it...

Ramp, this is the one I have in my Frankenstrat:

It works & I love it.

 

Pos 1 is passive - it works when the battery is out. You get the natural tone of your pickups.

 

Pos 2 is *either* a mids cut or a treble/bass boost. I liken it to the 'Post-CBS' tone we talked about in the 70s when we all thought CBS had saved money by putting fewer winds on the pups.

 

Pos 3 is a mild top-mids boost. I liken this to 'Pre-CBS'.

 

Pos 4 is a the above plus a low-mids boost - 'Texas Special'?

 

Pos 5 puts a *big* mids hump into the mix - mids heaven - salso gives mucho cruncho.

 

You need to replace the mono input jack with a stereo, remove the middle tone control, wire the bottom tone as a master, then run the main out put from the vol into the board. I have the battery sitting between the springs of the trem. I don't usually use the trem, but when I have, it hasn't interfered with its use.

 

Battery lasts at least a year.
