PedalDoctor FX Mod Rod
Until the past three years, I've felt little personal
interest in treble boosters, mainly because the
ones that I've had the opportunity to demo were
older original models that weren't operating well
and created more noise than signal. They also
seemed to be extremely bright and didn't quite
create the "drive" that I was expecting. (check
out "A Night At The Opera" "Day At The Races"
and  "News Of The World" by Queen and  the
"Blues Breaker album with guitarist Eric Clapton
for an idea of the tone I'm talking about)

Treble frequencies also create (or enhances)
overdrive when used to hit the front end of an
amp. If you want to see what I’m talking about,
grab an older tweed Fender that has only a
volume and tone control. Set the amp up with
the tone control straight up the center and
increase the volume until it just begins to
break up. Sounds great huh? Now increase
the tone control (to add treble) and check out
the overdrive. Lotsa gain and a very "chime-
like" overdrive just like the Bright switch on
some of the mid-sized "BlackFace" Fenders.
The "Queen Bee" takes advantage of this idea
and as a result, is referred to as a treble
"overdriver" It actually slams the front end of
an amp with just the right amount of gain and
treble to smooth out the amps natural
overdrive and add definition, much like the
"top boost" does for the famous VOX AC-30.
I've used it with Fender, Marshall, VOX, and
Matchless amps to name a few, and It seems
to work well with any type of amp. It also works
well in front of another overdrive pedal as a
lead channel and is not "harsh" or "tinny" but
cuts through a mix in a very musical way.
