Introducing the new Diamond Marquis Treble / Clean Boost pedal!

The Marquis is based on the boost side of a popular, but very limited edition, Diamond J-Drive TR pedal which is in turn based on classic treble booster circuits. The Marquis, like the TR, features a 2n388 Germanium transistor and the option to select from a classic Germanium Treble Boost or a clean, full range boost. Each of the two modes offers a distinctly different sound and each is particularly suited to achieving different results.

When people hear the term “treble boost pedal”, unsurprisingly they assume that it simply boost treble frequencies. But in fact a Germanium based treble boost pedal tends to cut your low end while pushing the upper mids. They also tend to introduce their own amount of grit into the signal. And when you run this already hot signal with a good overdrive pedal or a good tube amplifier you end up with something completely different than just turning the treble control up on your amp. Germanium boost pedals like this are responsible for some of the most reconizable guitar tones from the ’60’s and ’70’s.

Check one out today along with the other great pedals that Diamond offers!
