5 from 5 Nice One

The pedal works great, its really similar (not the same...imho even better) to the original one. You can get some great sounds paying less than half price... Its really easy to mount, you only need to know how to solder...and you can even modify the pedal as you like! The service is really good and fast. Dont forget to buy the knobs and the washers and nuts for the knobs. So..go for it!

5 from 5 Very fuzzy

Very fun build for my first time, I opted for the larger enclosure and still had a hard time fitting all those wires inside. My pcb is on the little white pedestals leaned up against the 3PDT switch on an angle. Funny thing happened when I left the 9V battery in there, it overheated the 9v battery connector and burned a 5K potentiometer in the process. I got another 5k lin and works fine now. *The transistors will have to be bent in order to close the pedal, dont cut too close to transistors. Very versatile fuzz with a nice booster effect and wacky space theremin sounds to boot. Cheers DasMusikding :D looking forward to my next build.

5 from 5 Crazy effect, so cool

Works great, wont get much of a warm fuzz sound out of this, but its really good at pretty much every other fuzz sound. And of course the oscillations are totally crazy!

5 from 5 FUZZY AS HELL!

A little bit of background: A friend of mine recently introduced me to the DIY guitar effect community. I have been through several effect schemes from the industry and decided to give it a shot.
The Factory was my first kit and damn thats a hit! All components labeled, super PCB, enough wires to fill up your box and the result!!! A fuzzy as hell pedal! Great sound! I am still playing around with the 5 knobs and discover great sounds.
From a satisfied DIY beginner, I recommend it definitely.

5 from 5 Excellent product

Le son est incroyable, des composants parfaitement répertoriés, numérotés et nommés un à un avec soin, vous pouvez comptez sur le support technique si vous avez des soucis avec le montage.
Néanmoins, jai eu un problème de switch (le 3PDT) au bout dune semaine dutilisation. Faux-contact coupant le son...
Foncez, achetez ce produit si vous aimez le fuzz :)

5 from 5 Perfect

This pedal is crazy, just like the original one.
No problem during assembly, all the parts are clearly indicated.
Now my wife hates me cause of the sirens sounds.
I can also hear the radio sometimes with it :D
Thumbs up on this kit.
Dont forget to buy nice knobs with it.

5 from 5 Great pedal

Came within 1 week, everything correctly labeled and in separated bags. Great kit after all but if you choose top mount enclosure be sure to make it fit nicely before soldering, it may be a little too fit and one of the jacks pins can touch the bottom of the enclosure, search for space or bend it a little and its solved, also put some cloth or plastic on the bottom to avoid any of these kind of problems. Pedal works perfectly, sounds amazing, goes from mild fuzz to 8 bit sounds to full oscillation madness, dont waste your money in overexpensive boutique factories, try for yourself for a lot cheaper an in a funnier way1

4 from 5 Bien mais...

tres bon kit ,mais perfectible : les composants sont de bonne qualité, les potentiomètres un peu cheap.
une fois assemblé, très bonne pédale avec des possibilités sonores étendues.
à revoir : le boitier aluminium, commandé prépercé : les perçages des potards ne sont pas correctement alignés, et légèrement décalés vers la droite.
les documents disponibles permettent de lassembler sans encombre pour peu que lon possède les connaissances de base en électronique.
