Is this along the Range Master idea of a treble booster or something completely different?

Yah, its not a million miles away from a Rangemaster circuit though being silicon is brighter.

What are the controls on Mary? I assumed they were Vol & Tone but mine seem to work more like Vol & More Vol. Sound great driving the amp!!! And Harry rips.

i think it's tone and drive.
Oh, DB? That's just slang for Dandy Big muff collector.

I just got mine today and had the same experience. I tried fiddling with them for awhile, I think the Reality is the Volume or output and the Grasp must be the the drive/attack setting. Anyone else have some experience?

Get a grip. Grasp, hold of your reality as best you can. The more grasp you got, well, the more you get. Pretty obvious, ay.
And there's me thinking that made perfect sense :hihi:

Reality be a tone filter. It also effects the gain as the bass is increased, rolling over to the right, so you get an apparent increase in volume. Grasp is the volume.

Initial tone report:

The distortion it produces is very usable and the bass is pretty tight. I didn't get any ice-pick treble out of it with the tweed Champ but in the Park's high gain channel I had to tame the it a bit from the guitar using the tone knob. It retains pretty good string definition too and even at the highest settings it cleans right up when you roll back the volume knob on the guitar.

I also had to keep the volume down today due to neighbor concerns. Once I get it in the studio and see how it responds I will have a better idea of how it sounds at stage volume. I would really like to hit the front end of an already cooking amp to see what happens. I thought it sounded best today with everything cranked! :freakout:

The Meathead is my favorite silicon circuit to date and the Blind Mary is a close second. I would love to try a germanium Meathead for comparison, as well as, one of those Flesh heads. Another home run for Rogue Sounds! :tu: :freakout:
