Welcome to Pedal Parts
Welcome to my little piece of web-based wonderment. Terrific Transistors, Kick-ass Kits, Super Switches and Marvellous Miscellany, all stocked in the UK.
You may have to do some lateral thinking to identify some of the kits. Trademark infringements aren't on the menu. They should be fairly obvious though, and if you aren't sure, just ask!
PLEASE NOTE: First time or high-value orders MUST be sent to your registered Paypal address. No exceptions.
New DIY effect pedal kits are constantly being developed. Check back here regularly for new stuff, or better still... click the links to the left to follow my interesting and informative social media or sign up to the email newsletter (no annoying spam).
Kits include all switches and connectors where appropriate unless otherwise stated in the listing (stompboxes normally have 3PDT footswitch, 2 x jack sockets, DC socket, battery snap, though requirements of each kit differ).
Please note: the kits are not join-the-dots, and the instructions do not give a step-by-step photo essay on how-to-assemble. You'll have to identify components and read resistor codes. If you're a beginner, please check out the instruction documents before purchase.
ITALIAN CUSTOMERS: please note, your postal service sucks. Badly. If you're ordering please be prepared to wait 4-6 weeks for your items. It's not my fault.

- *** sorry, builds temporarily unavailable. *** EVERYONE needs a Fuzz Face. And not just any old crappy silicon job spewed out of a factory, shonkily slapped together, unbiased and generally cack-sounding.
