Mythos Pedals Cestus Treble Booster
Silicon Treble Boost? Yes, have some!
The Cestus started life as a simple clean boost pedal but was discontinued some time ago. When we reworked the SusMaryOsep! for RJ Ronquillo the first thing he requested was a Treble Booster. After that circuit was completed we knew we had to re-release the Cestus as that treble booster!
This new version of the Cestus uses a silicon Mil Spec NOS 2N2222A transistor in lieu of a germanium transistor. This gives us the consistency and inventory necessary to produce these. In switching to silicon you have a Treble Boost that’s got a unique grit and hair. It works well even on slightly cleaner guitar amps, which was a surprise.
