The Electra Distortion is a very Tweed-Amp sounding Overdrive/Distortion pedal. Due to its low part count it is also a good start for beginners!

This kit contains all parts you need to build a fully functional effect pedal.

Not included in the kit, but also very good to have:

  • Aluminium enclosure: select one above.
  • 9V battery or DC power supply
  • 1 nice knob for the pot, for 6,3mm shaft
  • Decal, transfer or transparent sheets for labeling

Instrument: Guitar
Effect-Type: Amp-Sim Distortion Overdrive

5 from 5 Great!

This is a little big crunchy-box! Simple to build but with a great crunchy sound. Love it. A little bit noisy.

5 from 5 Tweedy

Nice one. Simple design, easy build. Dynamic touch, good crunch, tweed sound.

I socketed the diodes (1N914), so that I can easily try out different clipping diodes (like LEDs).
