Angus Preamp

Angus is a JCM 800 in a pedal, and it does a very very good job of that! It drops the tones of the 80s right at your feet. 6 controls for Volume, gain, prescence, bass, mid and treble. 

The kit is not difficult, but you do need a multi meter as you have several Jfet's to bias. You will not be able to do this by ear as there are too many. Biasing is an easy enough skill. 

Thru hole Jfets are an endangered species. We will send appropriate Jfets with our kit, they may differ from those listed but they will be tried and tested. 

This kit is supplied with a JP125B enclosure. As you can see the board is designed for 6 mounted pots which will be supplied at no extra charge, should we not have a certain value in stock then a wired pot wll be supplied however as all 6 are standard values, I do expect to have them all more often than not.  

  • I Wonder What it Compares to

    This kit compares to the PAL800 Jcm Emulator. 


    There is no endorsement or approval from any manufacturer and this information is for comparison only.

  • Build Guide

  • 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.

  • Case Drilling

    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.

  • Knobs

    You will need 3 knobs for this kit. I suggest you get medium sized

  • Fair Warning

    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.
