Divided by 13 Amplifiers

Divided by 13 is an amp company that does one thing some other amp companies don’t: listen to the needs of players.  In fact, the company was founded based on the needs of four different players: Nick Lashley, Rusty Anderson, Lyle Workman, and Joel Shearer.  divided-by-13-ampThe four Los Angeles players were all friends with Fred Taccone, owner and founder of Divided by 13, and they all had the same types of complaints about their amps.  Fred got the four together and they proceeded to spend hours listening to every different type of amp they could find, making note of what was great about each and what wasn’t.

Fred then began building his own amps that featured the best of the best.  Soon, word spread about their great amps, and musicians like Paul McCartney and Alanis Morissette started using Divided by 13 products.  Fred was, of course, no stranger to building amps.  He had worked for Risson Amps, a company started by ex-Fender designer Bob Rissi, while he was still in high school.  He later worked at Fender and at Music Man before moving on to a job in concert promotion.  He later worked as a recording engineer until he met his wife and retired.

It was during this time that Fred started to repair amps.  At first, it was just a side gig, but soon, he was repairing equipment for different stores and musicians.  By the time he met with the four players mentioned above, Fred was known throughout the area as one of the go-to guys for any amp repair or mod.  Soon, he was building custom amps for players, and it wasn’t long after that that he founded Divided by 13 and began to mke amps professionally.  Today, Fred and Divided by 13 offer ten different amps, and more are planned.  His client list has grown for a handful to more than a hundred.  If you want an amp that features only the best qualities of dozens of different amps, you want a Divided by 13 product.

Divided By 13 Dyna-Ranger Divided By 13 Dyna-Ranger
List Price: $175.00

All the way down to the original glass Mullard OC44 transistor, the "Dyna-Ranger" is a 5 range version of our favorite single germanium transistor treble booster from England used by an array of players from Eric Clapton and David Gilmore to Tony Iommi and Brian May. Going from position 1 to 5, the "Dyna-Ranger" covers all tones from the traditional treble booster to more in the middle "woman tones" to thick and lower Sabbath tones. It is THE perfect sounding boost/drive pedal.Rounding it off, we've added an "onboard" power converting circuit to allow the use of standard 9V power supplies in place of batteries, and a socket for the transistor allowing the player to try other transistors also found in the original versions of the pedal (SKT275, CV7003, Metal OC44, etc.). Just ask to add any of these transistors to your order for a try.
