CHAMP ELECTRONICS -" THE VINTAGE VALVE
THE CHAMP "TREBOOST PLUS" STOMP BOX - TYPE 5
Hi everybody, June 2009 is where we are at and here
is the latest addition to my now famous "Champ Treboost Plus"
amp-top boxes family........This time a stomp-box version, named as a Type 5.
It utilizes three transistors, four filter caps, and it absolutely sings!!
Do enjoy the photos.
Looks pretty cool.......very solid, & sings like hell!
The making of the triple-transistor rotary switch. The OC45 & OC71 are of course original NOS Mullard. The "metal-jacket" OC44 is a military-spec rated Mullard too.
The usual marking-out & drilling.
Pretty tight fit but I got it all in, and I'm very pleased with the result.
Ready to close the box.
My units are really plain & simple yet.......all my customers love this. They even specifically request the use of the simple yellow labels.......wicked!!
.........and an email recently received from another satisfied
From Dave - Champ Treboost+ Type 5 (Stomp-Box Version) - July 2009
"Hi John. Sorry for taking a while to get back to you. Iíve been away at a festival all weekend and I am just about recovering now!
As you know from speaking to my wife, the pedal turned up here just fine. I had a quick chance to have a blast on it before I left for the festival and Iím very impressed. I have quite a few different boosters and yours is the definitely the best of the bunch alongside my DAM Red Rooster. I love the option of being able to switch between the 3 transistors and your general build quality is top notch. I canít wait to get down to a rehearsal studio and really open up my Orange head and properly put the Treboost through its paces.
Thanks a lot and if you ever decide to make any other types of pedals then please get in touch with me Ė fuzz pedals are a bit of an obsession for me at the moment.
Take care. Dave."
