5 from 5 Sounds great, pcb and components OK

Its my 3rd build, the last one was a Rat and for a beginner it was quite difficult for me but I did it.
This one comes with a switch pcb ( easier to solder) and potentiometers are ready to solder on the pcb, which makes you save minutes and stress of work (I mean for beginners).
The sound is great, distortion is pure, adjust volume and amount of distortion.
For enclosure, prefer the B to the 125B cause the PCB is pretty small !
There is one more jack mono with the parts, dont know why but it could be usefull later for another product
Nice product once more ;)

5 from 5 Fairly easy to built, sounds great

This was my first pedal build, fairly easy to buld with basic knowledge. Needed less than 2 hours, it worked in first try.
In sound is very similar to the original pedal.
PCB and other components looks like decent quality.

5 from 5 Much better than the original D+

Easy to do (it was my first diy) and really much better sounding than the yellow original. I tried before with the optional C2 capacitor and then without: I prefer without, because is less treble oriented and more full sounding in the mids and bass frequencies.
Great pedal with great satisfaction to build it !!
