Ghost Effects, The Horn


Ghost Effects, The Horn
In stock

Based on the John Hornby Skewes Treblebooster.
The original 1960s units were amptop boxes with no level control.
For this version I added an output capacitor blend 'Tone' control, and a level control.
The circuit also has drop down resistors to help combat 'popping' when the circuit is switched in.
Great for brightening up and pushing a dark sounding valve amp.
Can also sound good after fuzz for tone shaping and before fuzz for boosting though the background noise levels raise a bit with the latter combination.
I use a military spec CV7355 transistor which is high gain, low leakage, great for booster circuits.
Labelling is a professionally printed vinyl sticker. - Ian Sherwen
