We are getting heavy orders so our normal week or so
build time are longer. Thanks for your patience!
In 2019 we are offering a limited number of 1960s Mullard/ASM OC72 transistors as an extra cost option. They sound about the same as other Beanos, and have low noise. These are a very rare type, you can see an example and more info, scroll down to the 4th photo at http://www.wylie.org.uk/technology/semics/Mullard...
Beano Boost requires optional power jack in order to use any power supply. Power jack is optional because it works and sounds best with a battery. If you get the power jack option, then we can also sell you a nice quiet power supply for it. No reverse polarity issues on the power jack, normal 9V boss type will work. We don't just add a power jack, as that would be pretty noisy, we also add power filtering circuitry to the power jack connection to reduce power supply noise. Please use only an ISOLATED power supply with these pedals, sharing power will cause noise and other issues.
The optional on/off volume pot allows disconnecting the battery by turning the volume all the way down. Then you can leave the pedal in your pedalboard without having to worry about unplugging the input cable to keep the battery from draining. This is not available on the Mini Beano Boost as it does not use a battery.
New for 2013! MINI BEANO BOOST
I am not a fan of tiny pedals as I have human size feet, but some people really like them. They are also great when using loop-based switchers. So Analog Alex built up some Mini Beano Boosts
for a customer request. No room for a battery but they work fine on a good power supply.
Also the ON/OFF volume pot is not available for the mini as there is no battery to save by turning it off.
We can sell them for the same price as the normal Beano with power jack. It's a little more labor but a little less cost in the box.
