Boostron 3


Based Upon a Trio of Classic Designs

The NEW Mu-FX Boostron 3 is three pedals in one… and three you might never want to turn off!

  • Stage 1: Based upon an Alembic Stratoblaster clean boost
  • Stage 2: Based upon a Musitronics/Dan Armstrong Orange Squeezer compressor
  • Stage 3: Based upon a Pro Co RAT distortion

Check out sound clips at the bottom of this page!

The Alembic Stratoblaster is a FET preamp that provides a clean boost. The original product was a retrofit guitar input jack with the (battery powered) effect built in – controlled by an on/off switch and a small adjustable trim pot for the desired amount of gain. The Musitronics/Dan Armstrong Orange Squeezer is a very simple and distinctive sounding compressor. The original product was a small cube that plugged directly into your guitar (…unless you had a Strat!), powered by a 9V battery and was controlled by an on/off switch as well as an internal trim pot for setting the desired output level. The Pro Co RAT is an LM308 op-amp distortion that ranges from bluesy overdrive to full-out fuzzy distortion. The original product was a moderately sized effects pedal powered by a 9V battery.

The Mu-FX Boostron 3 provides added functionality to these classic effects all bundled in our “mini-mu” housing. Made in the USA, this new Mu-FX product combines visual and sonic cues from the past with a thoroughly modern, pedal board oriented approach.

    • Bass Flat/-/+ Switch
      • Flat position is the normal tonality of distortion circuit
      • – position cuts bass frequencies from the distortion circuit
