DAZATRONYX – Germanium Amplifier +
The Germanium Amplifier is a vintage voiced boost that can smash your amplifier hard in the face. It is not intended solely as clean boost. Rather, it is voiced to be used with dirty channels to reshape your tone or add vintage-sounding sustain.
The Germanium Amplifier+ takes the already incredible Dazatronyx Deluxe Germanium Amplifier boost and adds Germanium/Silicon switching for lower noise, a sharper top end and the improved stability of Silicon… if that’s your thing.
The Germanium Amplifier+ is constructed with a ‘tin can’ PNP germanium transistor. The germanium transistor has a rich history in musical effects for its round and life-like sounding properties.
Germanium transistors were used before the introduction of silicon and have become increasingly difficult to find in acceptable condition with low leakage and suitable gain.
Each transistor is selected for over-all excellence and will always have its own sound. Each circuit is individually biased and tailored to suit the characters of the transistor. The circuit squeezed maximum use out of the transistor and runs with a little bit of its round break up.
A silicon selection switch has been added to the Germanium Amplifier+. Silcicon can be used for less background noise and a sharper clipping.
Please note: This is not a circuit for the hifi junkies! The output is setup hot and dirty and has its own levels of distortion and grit. Noise levels on germanium were far from perfect and they all flavour with their own voicing. This would be a booster best appreciated by fuzz players.
