    Up for sale is a Fboost prototype. This pedal is essentially the F bass eq section mounted in a stomp box. I called George a while ago to confirm it. He said a few were out there, and the blue pots indicate its the real thing. The circuit looks identical to whats inside my Fbass.

    The only difference I can tell between this and the current pedal is the volume knob.

    I was using this with a modulus jazz bass I owned, but I am down to just my Fbass. You could also take the board out and mount it in a bass.

    I am asking $170 shipped, which is what I have into it. I would consider a trade for a EBS ValveDrive.

    Browsing the ads..could not believe I saw this. I originally had George build it for me...he was reluctant at first but years later its a production item! Great EQ makes any passive bass better. By the way great price...I paid way more!

    Sorry if this is a dumb question, but are the knobs "Treble", "Bass", and "Volume"? Thanks :)

    The knobs are bass, mid, treble. All are boost only. If they are set at zero there should be no real tone shaping occurring. I am only moving it because I have a FBass with the identical eq and will be selling the jazz bass I used this pedal with.

    Mr. Ray, it's always funny when that happens. Did I by chance buy this from you years ago on eBay?

    price drop $170 shipped
