The N.E.W. TTTSNB is a solid-state emulation of the Master of Puppets guitar amp chain.This ambitious project is split on to two pcbs, one for the preamp, and another for the two EQ circuits. The kit is including the parts to build the EQ and Preamp part into one enclosure.

This kit contains all necessary parts, including the pcbs. The 50k rev log dual pots have a knurled 6mm shaft: Parts list

Knobs for the pots are not included in the kit, you can select them yourself. The 18 pots for round 6.3mm shaft, up to 19mm diameter.

5 from 5 Metallica tone in a box

A great preamp with a massive amount of tone tweaking options due to the built-in 3-band semi-parametric EQ and 5-band graphic EQ.

1. This kit is not for inexperienced builders due to the high parts count and very tight board layout.
Take your time and plan your building steps ahead.

2. If you like a pedal building challenge, choose the optional drilled JJ enclosure (dual footswitch drilled) like I did.
The JJ enclosure is smaller (145x120x39mm) than the default used 1590DD enclosure (188x120x56mm) as shown in the build instruction.
It is very cramped but in the end you will have a very nice compact FX unit.

3. Both PCBs have a charge pump in the power supply and each of the 3 cascaded circuits (MKIIC+ preamp emulator, EQF-2 EQ and 5-band EQ) can boost the signal a lot. The output signal can be very high and overdrive the next part of your signal chain.

I added 2 DPDT switches (one left of L-BRIGHT and one right of C-BRIGHT) to individually switch in/out the graphic and parametric EQs.
In the future I might buy a 2nd PCB set to build a dual EQ 1U rack unit using only the EQ PCB.
