4 from 5 EQ efficace

EQ efficace, montage relativement facile ( demande une connaissance du marquage des condensateurs ) . le montage est plus simple si vous commandez une carte fille pour le switch 3pdt, avec le trimpot et la résistance pour la LED. sur le site je nen ai pas trouvé, mais le concepteur ( TH Custom en fabrique )

EQ effective, relatively easy mounting (requires knowledge of the marking of capacitors). installation is easier if you buy a daughterboard for the 3PDT switch, with the trimpot and resistance to the LED. on the site I did not find any, but the designer (TH Custom )made that

4 from 5 Easy build good EQ pedal

Order and shipping process excellent. The build was easy enough, and Ive ended up with a decent EQ pedal. TIP: If you want to experiment with different combinations of capacitors to target different frequency bands, you should order some extra single pin inline sockets to temporarily fit your capacitors into - before you make your definitive choice. I did not do this, and find the circuit board too small and fiddly to change out parts now.

4 from 5 Great equaliser!

Excellent kit and quite easy to build. Only improvement would be to include a 3pdt board for the footswitch. I had a spare and wired that up. Great value kit though.

5 from 5 Nice flexible EQ pedal.

Just finished the build with no problems,very straightforward.

Im going to experiment with the values of components to tailor the actual EQ bands themselves as the values supplied dont hit the frequencies im looking for.

Aside from that its great pedal and having that extra flexibility to customise is a godsend.
Ive found these Musikding kits fantastic for getting me into pedal building and will be purchasing more as the months pass.I can see how addictive it becomes! Recommended.
