Wrecktifier - High-Gain Distortion with Boost

Massive distortion for all your chug and djent needs.

Huge gain that is said to resemble the sound of a 5150 amp (not heard one - wouldn't know). Great tone section with a mids control that scoops them right out of existance for a really heavy sound.

Don't write this off as a one-whack wonder though. Turn the gain down a bit and fiddle with the EQ and you have a vast range of tone to play with. Probably the only distortion you'd need. Add the voicing switch into the equation (Hard or Brutal) and you have a complete package.

Includes a post-boost as standard, which some people hate. The stock boost is more a signal-tinkerer that completely changes the overall sound, from nasally fuzz to muffled OD, but there are some interesting sounds to be had. If you're after a straight-up post-boost that will simply give the signal some added oomph then opt for the Boner Boost option. Both boosts are built straight on the main PCB - no need for a separate board

Note: the boost section is not independent. It's only engaged when the distortion is on, as per the original.

Why are there two different coloured PCBs you ask? The Boner Boost implementation on the original red board required some small hacks. This has been rectified on the black boards. If you order a kit with the original boost you'll receive the red PCB (while stocks last) as it requires no hacks.

This latest version includes the option to add an on-board charge pump to run the distortion at 18V while the boost remains at 9V. You can either hard-wire a single voltage, add header pins and a jumper clip to go between them, or a nifty little micro-slide switch.

PLEASE NOTE: This kit is not recommended for beginners. Though it isn't really any harder to put together than any others, the high parts count mean it will be difficult to troubleshoot if it doesn't work first time.

Kit includes sockets for the ICs, though they aren't shown. Image shows the Boner Boost config with jumpers and a hacked resistor. Pot spacing is 23mm - take that into consideration when choosing knobs. The stock vertical-mount pots have round shafts, so you'll need knobs with set-screw fixing. Wired pots with splined shafts are available as an option. Main PCB connects to daughterboard with a 6-way ribbon cable (supplied).


Kit includes: PCB, all components, hook-up wire, 3PDT footswitches for true bypass, jack sockets, DC socket, battery snap, LED. Enclosure (pre-drilled) is optional and will not take a battery. Does not include knobs.

This little creature is a monster 5 product stars
"I have a Peavey Vegas, which is loud (like Part Chimp loud) but squeaky clean. Who wants that? So I picked up one of these kits with all the options, and love the sheer versatility of it. If you get your EQ right, it sounds great with the gain dialled in anywhere from 2 up to 11. Wasn't expecting that kind of subtlety or range. It even sounds pretty decent with a bass running into it. It's the perfect distortion box for someone as musically indecisive as myself - that said, it's at its best with gain at 11, scooped mids, ridiculous tunings and too many strings."

This is one viscious beast! 5 product stars
"What a magnificent board and pedal this is, and the customer service from FuzzDog himself is unrivaled. There are some truly amazing tones under the hood of this little gem, and the "Hard/Brutal" Switch should not go overlooked - very useful for changing the color and feel of your tone. Keep in mind this beast is not just capable of removing the facial hair from the first 10 rows per se, but dial back the volume and gain a bit, increase the Mids, crank up the Boner Boost, and you will have some beautiful juicy blooming notes at your disposal. I just can't say enough about it. Thanks again FuzzDog for the amazing product and support to our fellow builders and musicians. -Mullet Dave Alta Loma, CA" Mullet Dave - 16/02/2016
Simply brutally excellent! 5 product stars
"Usual fuzzdog quality... This pedal does it all from light overdrive through to brain melting metal tones... You want scooped Mids? you got it... You want Heavy doom laden metal? you got it... Still got the spandex and a bottle of perm lotion from the 80's? go for it... The range of tone from this one box is outstanding... Comes with a boost as well... About the boost, If you buy this kit, get the SHO boost option. you will save yourself the aggro of having to undo some of your hard work when you realise you dont like the original boost... That not to say the original boost is bad, not at all, but its not the most workable boost in a live setup... Get one, get one now!" Poopot - 06/06/2015
I modded mine for use with Bass 5 product stars
"I built the previous version of this kit, the blue one. I would seriously advise socketing your diodes! This pedal has a LOT of gain, far more than most Bassists need. Generally, we need grit in a box and we aren't trying to shunt a valve amp. So with that in mind, this is a nice unit...but the breakup wasn't doing it for me. So I swapped out the primary clipping diodes for a pair of red 3mm LED's. This seems to work a lot better for bass. It's far more responsive and the breakup is sweeter. It's certainly more dynamic too. It's lowered the overall gain...but there's still way more than i need here...especially with the boner boost. The volume control colours the sound a little, where as the boner boost is more hi-fi and cleaner. So i can dial down the vol but push the boost a bit for a more transparent effect. It's a really nice pedal, but it is more suited to guitar than bass. The treble control is a little high and the mids is hitting upper mids on bass. There's a little low end loss, but the bass control easily buffs this back again. I think that the new Righteous kit is a better option for bass...but that's quite new and wasn't available when I built this unit." Gareth Cooper - 03/06/2015
The Djentleman 5 product stars
"This took some building. As mentioned in the description, it's not super hard, there are just lots of components. I laid out a sheet of paper with numbers for each resistor and capacitor and spent a little time before soldering anything laying out every component on its corresponding number, meaning that when I started soldering it was easy and quick, and I was confident that each part was there without scrabbling around. Once built it didn't work, just made a bizarre high pitched squeal that changed pitch with knob turning. I took it out and reflowed all solder joints, taking extra care with the bits where pots met pcb, stuck it all back together and BANG! The heaviest, djentiest, metallest guitar sound I've ever heard. Super controlled, though, really tight. The eq is excellent, there's a lot of diversity available here, each frequency is massively responsive. The mids are particularly fun, scooping out heaps of your tone to leave a scorched wasteland of defined metal grunt. Proper. I opted for the Boner boost, an easy addition (don't forget to power it! I did...) which makes the whole thing a useful stand-alone metal stomper. Think Gojira... Outrageous chugging." TGGD - 26/04/2015
