The Roanoke is a force to be reckoned with in the high gain overdrive pedal range! He gives you 5 knobs to play with and this pedal is designed to emulate a Marshall JCM800.
Not wanting to play down the quality of any other pedals I've built, but having built at least 300 different circuits over my time not many trully blow me away anymore, but this certainly did. I couldn't put it down! Its beyond exceptional.
As well as the usual Volume and Drive controls you have a 3 band Marshall styled tone stack so Bass Mid and Treble pots. Tones a plenty can be dialled in.
The board is designed to take right angled pots which will be supplied at no extra cost if stocked. If not you will need to wire them in place.
This kit fits a JP125B enclosure. It is suitable to an intermediate level builder.
I Wonder What it Compares to
This kit compares to the JHS Angry Charlie v3.
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.
Full Kit - As above with undrilled enclosure and off board components (foot switch, Jacks, 9v, LED)
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 5 knobs for this kit. I suggest you get skinny ones.
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.
