Tym Teenage Fanboost

Regular price $285.00 Unavailable


I fine tuned the Tatanka boost I make for Brett Netson from Built to Spill and then added a FREQ knob that is a 6 way switch with frequency selectors, not unlike the FAC on an Orange/Matamp design on the input and output of the circuit. This basically goes from a full linear boost to a treble boost with other options in between.  This FREQ switch, along with the active tone control gives a lot of different options depending on what amp you're using.

You can set the FREQ control to suit the bottom end of your amp, and then fine tune it with the tone control. The boost is of course, the amount of volume/boost you send to the amp going from zero to a considerable amount of boost that stays fairly clean depending on the headroom of your amp. 

These are not limited edition but like all my stuff will be limited supply due to the nature of how I make things. 1 per customer. These will be sold in batches of 10 every few months. For more info check the blog.


“ I spoke with Tim about the possibility of him designing a pedal for me just over a year ago. I mentioned that I had been on the lookout for a boost pedal that would compliment the AC30 that I’ve been playing through forever. In the past I’ve used an MXR micro amp and more recently a Keeley Catana Clean Boost, which are both great one knob (the Keeley also has a switch) pedals. Both Tim and I wondered what could be done to give the Teenage Fanboost it’s own personality and character. Tim suggested that we add a knob for the selection of six stepped, fixed frequencies, specifically chosen to help cut through the mix when the boost alone wasn’t doing it. With the further addition of a gentle tone control for tweakage, the pedal design was complete. Tim made a prototype. I’ve been using it for months now and it is everything I could have hoped for. Extremely versatile. A very sweet and musical boost and I can always dial in the right frequency for whatever song I’m playing.” Norman Blake 

All of my pedals are hand made by me here in Brisbane, Australia using locally sourced components where possible and custom made enclosures. All the Tym effects on this site are constantly being hand made and uploaded for sale as they become available. I do not do presales/preorders or holds on ANY of my hand made stuff. Keep an eye on my NEWS feed for what's coming up and when it will be available. Check my blog for more info. 

All power supplies are std BOSS style adaptors unless noted otherwise. None of my pedals use batteries.
