5 from 5 Everything is ok

Good one.
No problem with this build, everything was ok.
Good clear sound, and crunch to overdrive possible with a fat sound.

5 from 5 Great sounding boost!

I use this a clean boost and it is an excellent sounding pedal that I always keep on! Really makes your amp come alive. Has a very nice overdrive to it too if you turn the gain up. Very easy build too.....put mine in a BB enclosure but you could fit it quite easily into a smaller one too.

5 from 5 amazing

I always dream to try this one but the real one is too expensive.

Amazing sounding and even for a newbie like me the build was easy.

5 from 5 Back to the 70s

If you want your Les Paul to sound like Jimmy Page or your Strat like Hendrix, thats the pedal youve got to build ! Very easy build, no problems during assembly. The 3PDT wiring board provided with the kit makes it even easier.

Remark 1 : the bass pot doesnt do much but I probably wired something wrong.
Remark 2 : the gain knob (as explained in the instructions) has a very peculiar action : almost clean boost up to 3 oclock, then a warm OD until 5 oclock, then great vintage fuzz, perfect for soloing (and with the characteristic octave up when you cut the tone pot on your guitar)

5 from 5 Gran bel pedale!

Gran bel pedale! Nessun fruscio ne rumore di fondo.
Ogni componente è contrassegnato con i valori esatti.
Ho avuto un piccolo problema ma grazie al forum GuitarPcb ho saputo sistemare il problema.
Unica cosa negativa è che non erano presenti nel kit i sockets per i 3 transistor al germanio, li ho dovuti saldare direttamente nel pcb.

Per il resto tutto perfetto.
