Box of Tone 50

Hot! Box of Tone 50

Clone of a rather nice, super-simple boost/OD box. Single bias control will take you from clean boost to overdrive, and can crank enough juice out to really push an amp into new territory.

Highly pick-responsive. A great addition to any set up.

Kit is available with a standard sized 1590B enclosure with battery, or a mini 1590A (36 x 90mm) enclosure with DC power only, though be aware that you'll be wiring in a very confined space.

Kit includes: PCB, all components, hook-up wire, 3PDT footswitch for true bypass, jack sockets, DC socket, battery snap, LED. Enclosure (pre-drilled) is optional - 1590B will take a battery, 1590A will not. Does not include knobs.

Difficulty: Easy

PCB size: 30 x 22mm

Knobs required: 1

Enclosure: 1590B, 1590A

Direct-Connect compatible (4-way)

If you want the kit pre-built you must add the enclosure option below and select your knobs in the Components section. Check Specials for powder-coated enclosure availability.

Every pedal board should have one 5 product stars
"This thing is amazing. Stupidly easy build - takes about ten minutes to populate the board. The sound is a fairly simple boost and clip but it just pushes all my buttons! It works best into a just-overdriving valve amp, and gives it a shove into the sweet spot. It just nails that '70s rock sound. It also sounds really good in front of other pedals like the Mucky Hush and the BSIAB to give them a lead boost. Try experimenting with different diode combinations and input / output caps as they give very different sounds. So far I have three different ones - at this price it's rude not to have at least one!"

Very lovely little tiny wonderful thing of delight. 5 product stars
"Really classy little boost/overdrive, very versatile, very cheap (doesn't sound like it) and pretty much essential. I've got a LOT of overdrive/distortion/fuzz pedals (too many for a pedal board, I use some of them for recording mostly) and this is straight in as a new essential. I don't think I will be without it. I generally use serious noisy fuzz stuff like Shin-Ei FY6 and Fuzz Factory, as well as disgust-machines like the Greasy Tool, but this pedal is a perfect little added extra bite provider. Small enclosure is a total winner too, very cute." Steve - 16/07/2013
