While staring at Stevie Ray’s statue in Austin, Carl decided to add a

Texas style overdrive to the Vintage lineup.  Equally suited to single coils

or humbuckers and with a True Bypass Switch, the Blue Ranger also

incorporates a ‘dual-clip’ circuit to keep the sound un-muffled and clear at

all levels.  The overly simple controls (Level for overall volume, Gain for

the amount of overdrive, and Tone for fine tuning your sound) quickly take

you from big open Hendrix-y chords to saturated SRV type leads, and beyond!

The Blue Ranger will actually cross the border into Fuzz with the Gain full

out.  Housed in the cool new diecast housing with mini-knobs and cool retro

colour, Blue Ranger can be powered by a 9v battery, but we always recommend

a regulated power supply for optimum response!

Carl got a call from an old guitar playing friend who said he

didn’t want to use his wah all the time, but wanted to have some of those

effects available.  Enter the Classic Optical Envelope….essentially a

classic envelope filter (auto-wah utilizing the same opto-technology as the

Opto-compressor) for guitar or bass, with a bunch of cool options.  The

first footswitch is for fx on/off (buffered), and the second to select

between the three modes (High Pass, Band Pass and Low Pass).  Add to this

the Level control for overall volume, Drive for how hard the auto-wah will

function, Q for adjusting the size of the bandwidth, and Tone which acts as

a separate Hi-pass filter, and you have complete control over your fx…from

vocal like tones to funky quacks and fat wows!  Housed in the cool new

diecast housing with mini-knobs and cool retro colour, the Classic Optical

Envelope can be powered by a 9v battery, but we always recommend a regulated

power supply for optimum response!
