4 from 5 Super conception

Premiere fois pour une pédale à lampe et je suis ignare en électronique
Le résultat est mitigé . Le bon. La pédale fonctionne très bien, aucun bruit parasite. La documentation est bien détaillé, et la conception est très bien pensée pour le boitier.
Le moins : mais je suis tombé dans des petits pièges; il y a quelques différences entre le schéma, la photo du montage et le texte. Les switch fournis sont en plastique lisse et non en métal à vis comme sur la photo.
sinon, la lampe nest pas super semble til. Jai trouvé le niveau de gain assez faible même à fond. Jai mis un 12AX7 chinoise que javais chez moi, et le grain est plus jolie, mais à fond. Je vais commander une lampe de qualité pour essayer davoir du gain au moindre volume.
Donc plutôt bon produit, juste le détail du niveau de gain.

5 from 5 A real tube overdrive!

This tube drver kit is the best overdrive pedal Ive ever had! The gain make it sound like a real Orange or a Marshall amp! Even with a transistor amp! You also can colour the sound with the bass and treble knobs. The LED underneath the tube that lights up the tube looks realy cool! If you dont have the right overdrive sound yet and want a good looking pedal, with a great sound,
I would like to recomment this kit to all creative guitarplayers! It really rocks you!

3 from 5 Sound Gut, Kit nicht top

gleich zum schlechten,
im kit war keine 3mm LED, nur 2 5mm, und unter den roehren sockel kommt ne 3mm LED. muste den sockel kaputt machen damit ich ne 5mm LED einbauen konnte.

die potis die dabei waren, sind die 9mm plastik potis, die man nicht am gehaeuse anschrauben kann... der bogen ist das einzige was so das pcb oben haelt...

der sound is super, aber der kit inhalt ist nicht wie er sein sollte...

5 from 5 Perfect tube overdrive.

This must be the best overdrive pedal I have ever used. Period. Great action and headroom with the 12AT7 tube from JJ (which is an excellent tube). Just make shure the poweradaptor you use is of good quality. I first used a multi-voltage-cheap-adapter and the noise it made was unbearable Now it is connected to a 1-Spot adapter and works perfect, no noise...For those who dont get the led in the tube working, make shure R8 is filled on the board, the lower the value the harder the led shines, obviously...

5 from 5 does not work

Le istruzioni non sono chiarissime, ci sono 2 modi per collegare il foot switch e nessuno dei 2 pare funzionare, lunico aiuto dato per capire il PERCHè tale pedale non funzioni, è andare su un forum esterno al sito con una miriade di post che lamentano problemi col suddettto dedale, è il 5 kit che monto sono davvero frustrato
