Country Crunch Drive

Don't let the name fool you. This signature pedal of a well known country slinger is so versatile it could sit on any board.

From almost clean boost, through a bit of hair, to all out screaming solo drive, this box has it all while keeping its composure (and your tonal integrity).

Your standard Volume, Gain and Tone (we'll get to that shortly) controls are augmented by a prescence switch to make it sounds as good with your Tele as it does with your LP. Add to that the three way mids switch and you have countless settings to play with.

The original uses a C25K pot for the Tone control, and try as we might we can't grab any in vertical pin format. We've spent a long time trying it with every different combo of pot value and tapering resistor, and the best workaround we've found is simply C50K with a 51K resistor across pins 1 and 3. There's still a little bunching at the extreme ends of the turn, but it's a very useable work-around. If you don't fancy that, don't buy it.

Available with board-mounted pots (round shafts) or wired (splined shafts), though the wired option will still be supplied with C50K/51K resistor. The two switches mount direct to the PCB, so either pot option will still give you a solid mount in the enclosure.

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

Difficulty: Medium

PCB size: 50 x 50mm

Knobs required: 3

Enclosure: 1590B

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. Builds only available with vertical-mount pots.

Great pedal 5 product stars
"This was my first ever pedal build. I have no electronic knowledge but can use a soldering iron and follow a plan. No more complex than my sons Star Wars lego plans ! I have a multimeter and identified the resistor values with it , muck easier than squinting at bands although I checked them as well. Pedal worked at testing stage but not once wiring foot switch,this was my fault as i had the switch lugs 90' sideways, googled switches and worked this out. Looking at the drawing this was obvious as the lugs are oblong .Have ordered and recieved my new tri verb build and found FD to be brilliant at delivery communication etc." Steve Collop - 05/01/2017
