Vintage-Parts.com have the Philips OC44, OC44.05 and CV7004 in stock (as always with germanum its the luck of the draw with hfe and leekage, so grab more then you need!)

And clark1230 on ebay has a bunch of Belgium made Philips OC44 that are really good.

(no affiliation to either seller, just a happy customer and have used the transistors recommended).

Built up this Rangemaster with an AC125 and I really dig it. Compared to the OC75 that I'd built up before this one is a little more mellow, but still can get growly. I've been finding that I feel weird when I DON'T have the Rangemaster on!

Revalved/tubed AC30 with some nice 1970 Sovteks breaking in a new Celestion gold with help from a Pigdog Rangie and feeling like a War Catfish :zgrin:

Released a year before Sabbath's debut...



Rangies rule :headbanger:

Anybody read this interview with Tony Iommi?

Treble-trouble
What other key pieces of gear did you use back then?

"When I lived in Cumberland, when we did the Mythology thing [Iommi's earlier band], there was a guy up there and I used to use his treble booster called a [Dallas] Rangemaster to give my sound a bit more 'oomph'. A guy from another band up there said, 'I can make that sound better for you'. So he took it off me and brought it back the next day. I don't know what he did to it, but it was really good. I used that treble booster on all the early Sabbath albums and put it into the Laney because it boosted the input and gave it the overdrive I was looking for, which amps in the early days didn't have.

"I used that treble booster up until 1979 when I had a guy come in to build me some Marshalls. They gave me a whole stack of Marshalls and this guy came in and rebuilt them. In the meantime, while he was building these things, he threw my treble booster away. I didn't know until it came to the time when I was looking for it and he said, 'Oh that? I threw it away. It was crap'. I couldn't believe it. I've never seen it from that day on and my amps didn't sound right without it."
