Catalinbread Galileo Treble Boost Overdrive Pedal
Captures the regal and soaring tones of a Rangemaster Treble-Booster into a cranked up Vox AC30
"Queen in a box"
Brian May’s sonic signature not only comes from his home built “Red Special” guitar, but also from a treble-booster pummeling banks of AC30s. He never turns the treble booster off, accessing a wide range of tones simply by manipulating his volume knobs and pickup settings. From his guitar, to the treble booster, to the amps, his entire rig is essentially a singular musical instrument. One that inspires the sort of playing May is known for. We designed the Galileo with this playing approach in mind, that with it you can roll your guitar volume back for jangly AC30 cleans, and crank it up for searing leads and aggressive yet focused rhythm tones.
Gain: Just like a real AC30, this controls the amount of distortion present in the signal, from the light-breakup “jangly” sound for which clean AC30 is known, to blistering leads when cranked. This control is highly interactive with your guitar’s knobs and any outboard guitar-mounted switching you may have.
Tone: While AC30s offer up treble and bass controls, May never cared for the bass side much. This Tone control governs the amount of treble present in the signal, very useful for brightening up a dark amp or post-Galileo drive pedal. The Galileo’s Tone knob also goes way beyond the boundaries of a normal AC30 for a different flavor of Vox that leaps out of any mix.
Volume: Turn it up, volume goes up.
