Three controls get you to the essence of the Brian May sound - Gain, Tone, and Volume. You will own the stage when you step on this pedal! With your guitar turned full up, you’ll get the soaring lead tones of Brian May. Turn your guitar slightly down and you’ll be tying your mother down all night. Turn your guitar down further and you’ll get an amazing jangle-y clean sound that isn’t really clean but is! In a full band context, this pedal will help you cut through in just the right frequencies.

There is something very special about a treble-booster hitting a Vox AC30. The midrange gets super throaty with an amazing harmonic swirl. Back the guitar volume down and that iconic Vox jangle gets magnified - it can sound angry and aggressive, yet chime-y and beautiful at the same time. It’s a complex harmonically laden tone that is very compelling to play. And the new Galileo gives you exactly that response!

Handbuilt in beautiful Portland, Oregon by a mostly caffeine-fueled staff of musicians, gear heads, and artists.

This pedal is Exactly as advertised.! .. It combines the sounds of an overdriven Vox AC30 and the original Rangemaster treble booster. It literally is "Brian May" in a box.. I Love It.!!



Brian May and Tommy Iommi all day!


I'm using this pedal with a Les Paul plugged in to an Egnator amp. I get a super chunky, crunchy sound that is making me want to give up on the rest of my pedsls and use this setup exclusively. With the coils split I get a nice Brian May sound and with the humbucker in the bridge position get a great Tommy Iommi sound. It is definitely a noisy pedal, so be prepared for that. Treble boosters always are, even Brian May said so.



Magnifico! (ooooooo)


It is pretty hard to find a pedal that gets the sound of a cranked Vox AC just right. With just 3 knobs, the Galileo does it almost perfectly. It certainly leans more towards the sound of Brian May's cranked amps, but it is very versatile when it comes to the amount of drive and aggression you can get out of it. Sam Ash Associate Review

Brian May in a box


Great cranked up AC 30 tones. You really don't have to be a fan of Brian May's tone to enjoy this pedal. It's very versatile and full of great tones. Built like a tank too!
