Shipping calculated at checkout.

No sales tax for customers outside California.


A highly sought after and collectable pedal and we see why - it sounds great!  If looks count, it has that too.

All original with the original box and stuff.  Pretty much mint condition.

This is a single germanium full range booster, co-produced by famous Grammy Award winning producer-writer-guitarist, John Shanks. Based on the Dallas Rangemaster, used by big names like Brian May, Richie Blackmore, and Tommy Iommi, we put in some tweaks with the advice of John which then added a Sola Sound Tone Bender Professional mkII vibe, which Jimmy Page used in Led Zeppelin, giving Shanks a hybrid characteristic.
For the sound, we used difficult to find vintage hand picked N.O.S condensers. For the power outlet, we use state of the art tech which allows the great tone with a noiseless boost and wide head room.
The Bass knob allows to create a full range boost.
From a clean sparkle to crunch and for a full boost that can drive like a Tonebender.
