Great Simple Pedal 5 product stars
"For my first pedal I didn't want to build something really difficult and this looked fairly simple. It took me a while to build, but that was because I had to learn how to solder, learn how transistors and resistance and all of the components worked as well as do a bit of trouble shooting towards the end. The only slight annoyance was that the LED wasn't working but have ordered a couple more and should be a simple fix. Definitely a new addiction for me, the pedal sounds amazing. Played to a few guitar friends claiming it was a boutique pedal and they all believed me. A lovely light drive sound right through to a bit of crunch. It also sounded great on top of an overdriven amp as well as stacking drive pedals after it. Already bought my next kit" Tom Holmes - 15/03/2017
