Here we have a Plexi in a box distortion, with three knobs controlling the vol, tone and gain and a two position toggle switch which lets you select between two modes. Its classic rock in a box! Think Kossof, ZZ Top and friends.
The kit is not so difficult, as you can you have a few parts to identify but beyond that there is no special skill necessary. The results are great for such a simple circuit.
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. The new layout has pads for SMD fets as well.
This kit is supplied with a JP1590B enclosure, the PCB can hang from the toggle securely and also takes right angle pots which we will supply at no extra cost should we stock the correct value. If not, they will wire in place easily.
I Wonder What it Compares to
This kit compares to the Dirty Little Secret by Catalinbread.
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 3 knobs for this kit. I suggest you get medium sized
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.
