Fifty Nine Bassman

A few component chnges to the Rockin Box project and we have a pedal that simulates the 1959 Fender Bassman Tweed amp.  The overdrive section has 3 controls: drive, tone and volume. The 4th pot controls the post boost


There is also a post boost included - essentially a SHO Crackle boost. Each effect can be used independantly or together, controlled by a footswitch each. This is an incredibly versatile drive pedal.

The kit is currently supplied with a JP125B sized enclosure. Theres quite a bit of offboard wiring to do, however the circuit itself is not overly challenging. The PCB is designed to fit right angled mounted 16mm Alpha Pots, we will supply these if we have them in stock, if not, short wires must be used to connect the pots to the PCB

  • I Wonder What it Compares to

    This kit compares to the 59 Sound by Zvex. 


    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 4 knobs for this kit. I suggest you get medum 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.
