5 from 5 Believe the hype

Nice PCB, although its a bit tight; I wouldnt recommend it for absolute beginners (it was my third build, and I did break a couple of sweats putting it together...).
The kit quality is good, apart from the PF5102s that had a pinout issue, but Klaus said hed send replacements.
In the meantime, I found a (messy) workaround with extra wiring (lesson of the day: ALWAYS socket transistors).
This thing sounds immense; razor sharp Rat-flavored distortion made molasses-thick by the blendable octave-up, and sent over the edge by a thundering, not even close to clean post-boost.
Although it does the downtuned drone-doom thing fantastically well, its much more versatile than youd expect and can be used in a variety of unexpected ways (your clue: stacking).
While its definitely worth a try if youre into thick, heavy fuzzes, its hardly worth the ridiculous prices the originals fetch; this kit solves that problem, and makes it even more compact and pedalboard friendly. cherry on the cake!

5 from 5 A lot of fun for a fraction of the price of a Life Pedal.

This build isnt for the beginner as there are a high number of components and Id suggest some research on the PedalPCB forum. Follow the build document carefully as there apprears to be a misprint on the board itself on the GE sockets.
I read about an issue with certain transistors but Musikding send working replacements in their place.

The pedal sounds immense and its versatile as a boost/ fuzz. So much so that its replaced two long time favourites on my board and Im still playing with the full options it gives. Have a look at the EQD Life Pedal reviews on YouTube and then imagine that in a more compact box. Doom fans need this in their lives.

4 from 5 Growling sound in box

The build process was pretty straightforward. Take great care with reading the documentation and sort all of the parts beforehand to make the populating the PCB and soldering easier. As for the PCB layout, its great. Fits snugly into the provided enclosure.

Just one tip: when you finish populating the PCB, put the LEDs and potentiometers in the correct position inside the enclosure and put the PCB on the pot/LED leads and then solder them on. After that, do the offboard wiring to make it tidy.

I just had one problem. I ordered a predrilled enclosure but the holes for input, output and DC jacks were missing. I drilled them myself with a step drill bit without much trouble. This is the only reason why I will give 4/5 stars.

The sound is the best part. When you strike a chord on a guitar, the room lights up and you feel like your walking the the surface of the Sunn ;) I have to recommend this kit to all to try. Its great value.
