The Acapulco is a fantastic one knobed distortion kit. If you like distortion, then you will love this one. It really grinds! Two LM386 chips drive the circuit.
As kits go, this one has very few parts. The PCB hangs from the board mounted pot as you can see in the product piccy.
This kit is suitable for a beginner, just be careful with those chips.
This kit is supplied with a JP1590B enclosure.
I Wonder What it Compares to
This kit compares to the Acapulco Gold.
There is no endorsement or approval from any manufacturer and this information is for comparison only.
Whats Included with Each Option
PCB Only - Just the plain PCB
PCB & Components - PCB, onboard components and any pots and toggle switches.
PCB & Components and off board parts - As above with off board components (foot switch, Jacks, 9v socket, LED)
Full Kit - As above with undrilled enclosure.
Full Kit & Drilling - Full kit with drilled enclosure
Drilling is an optional extra for the Full Kit. There is a small surcharge for this.
Drilling includes all the holes for a complete pedal.
You will need 1 knob for this kit. I suggest you get a big one.
Please be sure to read the build document before you order. The kits are enjoyable but can also be challenging.
You will have to identify components, calculate resistor codes and be able to solder them into place.
All kits require full assembly and any images of completed PCBs are for reference only.
Pre Built Kit
If you want the kit pre building then select this option, you must add your knobs from the knob section or it will come without any!
The pre build options is exactly that, you are buying a kit and I am doing the build for you. There are no returns accepted on these but I do give a 12 month repair warranty so should a fault be developed I will repair it.
