A nice pair of boosts/tone shapers, both of which can be made using the same PCB (though only one at a time - come on!).
Both versions utilise fantastic Baxandall active EQ circuitry to keep your tone clean and crisp, offering +/- 15db on bass and treble, and both kick out up to 20dB boost.
So, what's the difference?
- Type A offers a bit of grit with your boost, pushing into overdrive at the top of the turn.
- Type R is clean, clean, clean right up to the top end of the range, where a bit of dirt starts to creep in.
You can also opt for more bass-friendly caps, which change the frequency filtering at the input, and also adjusts the EQ control frequencies. These aren't bass effects, but can be used to great effect on your 4 (or 5)-string.
PCB is designed for vertical-mount pots, but you can use normal wired ones if you prefer. Note that the vertical mount pots supplied have round shafts, so will require knobs with set-screw fixing.
Partial kit: PCB, all board-mounted components, pots.
Full kit: As above, plus footswitch and appropriate daughterboard/components for your selected bypass type (see Downloads section for details of those), jack sockets, DC socket, battery snap, hook-up wire, LED.
Enclosure (pre-drilled) is only available with full kits, and will not take a battery. Knobs are not included.
Builds are only available with full kits including enclosure and vertical-mount pots. Please choose appropriate knobs.
