4 from 5 Great stoner doom tones

Really easy to build and it sounds surprisingly good. I wasnt expecting anything useable for this price, but this pedal actually nails some perfect stoner doom tones. And under the right circumstances, you can hear radio through it :) Maybe its just LM386 thing, maybe my poor soldering skills, but it can be solved by adding a battery clip.

5 from 5 Un super son ! Very great sound !

Exactement le son que je cherchait ! Facile à monter. Sans aucun doute les 16 euros les mieux dépenser depuis longtemps! Bravo à l’équipe !

Exactly the sound i was looking for ! Easy to build. 16 € very well spend ! Thanks to the team!

4 from 5 Real nice kit for beginners

This kit is perfect for beginners, few pieces but al kinds (caps, resistors, chips, plugs, switch, pots...) , good to begin understanding electronics.
plus, sounds awesome when finished.
detail: the switch pcb has input and output inverted, out on the right and in on the left, i spent like 1 hour wondering why it wasnt working. i just was plugging it reverse -_-

5 from 5 Super easy and good sounding!

The kit is really easy to build, just about an hour of work. The sound of this distortion is raw and crude but very musical - exactly what I was looking for. You really dont need anything else but the volume knob.

5 from 5 Spitting stoner/doom machine

Easy to build. Nice distortion/fuzz collapsing sound. Sensitive to guitar volume/tone. Many tones in one knob box!
