One PCB, two different circuits based on 70s Hiwatt™ amp tones. Shape your sound into something close to two classics:
- NORTH - based on Pete Townsend's sound on The Who - Live at Leeds.
- SOUTH - Page's sound from Led Zeppelin at the Royal Albert Hall, 1970
Either can be made on the same PCB (though not both at once - sorry!)
NORTH is simpler in both construction and tone shaping, having Vol, Gain, Bass and Treble. The tone controls are highly interactive.
SOUTH adds a Mids control, which adds more interaction into the tone stack mix. Slightly fiddlier to work with, but a lot more versatile.
Both versions are very responsive to playing dynamics.
Designed for vertical mount pots (which have round shafts), or you can wire up normal pots if you prefer.
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.
If you want the kit pre-built you must select the full kit/enclosure option and vertical-mount pots. Don't forget to select knobs from the set-screw section too.
PCB size: 50 x 50mm
Knobs required: 4 (North), 5 (South)
Direct-Connect compatible (4-way)
