The Hat is a 4 knobbed distortion kit based on Andy Timmons signature tones. I have had no experience of this pedal until I plugged in the prototype...it blew me away. Wow - its amazing! It is a bit noisy though although on the flip side it is a high gain distortion, so I guess that is to be expected!
As well as the four control pots there is a 3 way toggle switch, which gives you excellent versatility - appropriately named 100w, 50w and 25w modes.
The PCB will hang from the toggle, and the pots will be wired into position here. Theres not too much to build here, 4/10 difficulty.
This kit compares to the AT by JHs Pedals.
