Candyman Overdrive

Arguably the most popular and sought after overdrive out there, just don't say the name out loud!

Very natural, transparent oomph. Works well on bass with the right tweaking of the tone and clipping options.

Controls: Gain, Vol, Treble Cut, Bass Cut.

By popular demand, the latest incarntion of this beauty has board-mounted pots (with round shafts - grub screw knobs, people!) and optional external clipping selector switch instead of the internal DIP switches. You can still wire up 'normal' splined shaft pots if you want.

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 enclosures and vertical-mount pots. Please choose appropriate knobs.

Difficulty: Medium

PCB size: 50 x 42mm

Knobs required: 4

Enclosure: 1590B

First Kit - a Good One 5 product stars
"This was my first full kit FD pedal - made a few up from PCB's before this. Very easy build this one - and it's turned out an excellent sounding pedal. Just need to work out how best to incorporate it into my board now. Highly recommend FD kits and PCB's - the quality is beyond anything I saw before, and better than most bought pedals (provided you take care building it !)." Nick M - 18/04/2017
transparent as advertised 5 product stars
"As expected from Mr. fuzz dogg, great kit and instructions. Verry usefull as clean boost or overdrive without the big (mid hump)tube screamer stamp. I chose this one to boost the gainstage on my amp because i love the sound of my amp, this one keeps the sound intact." Arne - 13/10/2014
