The Germania 44 is identical to the Germania except that it is built using the highly regarded and sort after European OC44 germanium transistor. Features switchable Lo-Fi / Hi-Fi modes. Lo-Fi mode: original Rangemaster sound, tough and aggressive. Hi-Fi mode: brighter, more transparent with less mid emphasis.
The Germania is an amazing recreation of the popular Dallas Rangemaster treble boost, gain control and true bypass footswitch. It does exactly what it should - a huge kick to the input and musical distortion. Knock back the guitar's volume control, and the signal cleans up to a shimmering clean sound. Bring up the guitar volume again, and you have smooth, sweet overdrive from the amp, together with controllable feedback, often jumping an octave from the original note. Top quality components, top quality treble boost!
True bypass switching, hand built in the USA.
