5 from 5 Tweed sound

This pedal is very easy to build and can emulate old Fender Tweed amps with impressive precision. It does anything from warm cleans (especially with the guitars volume knob rolled back) to cranked tweed sounds. It works well with other dirt pedals (overdrive, distortion, fuzz), responds nicely to the guitars controls and also sounds great with a tube amp at a bedroom level, especially when its powered with 12V. I highly recommend this pedal for those who want that cranked vintage tweed amp sound.

5 from 5 Good OD

The kit is easy to build, only few parts to solder .
But overall it s sounds great on my VOC AC15 , get a clean tone from your amp, and use the Lius for crunches and its boost for more distortions. Nice also with others OD and fuzz ! Very similar to the (real) leslius videos you can find !

Just a con : When you solder the on-off-on switch, beware, its a little cheap and the plastic might melt if you put to much hot iron on it !

5 from 5 Great distortion

Great distortion. Very resonsive at your playing. Easy to build. Only 1 problemen and that is the cable. If you make a mistake and try to unsolder the cable, the plastic will melt very fast. I added a super hard on with a mini toggle on the side of the housing to make it more versatile. Great sounds, low price!

5 from 5 très bon

Cest aussi bon que ce à quoi je mattendais. Assemblé avec un Kay tremolo et un 3Verb dans le même boitier, ça fait mon son dans limmense majorité des amplis où je me branche !
