Rory Gallagher’s Boss FA-1 FET Amplifier Pedalaccess_time First seen circa 1982
Mentioned by Rory in 1982, as something he was using at the time as a replacement for Dallas Rangeboost that he was used extensively up until then.
I use the Boss FET pedal which, although a transistor, has been designed to sound as much like a valve as possible. It still can’t beat the old Dallas Rangemaster that was doing the rounds in the ‘sixties though.Kerrang No.15 May6-19, 1982
Interestingly, the pedal is still accounted for – see Rory Gallagher | The Official Website – Amps & Effects Archive.
