The Wasteman is a 4 knobbed overdrive pedal, based on a tubescreamer but fed steroids and improved to perfection. Its not just another tubescreamer at all, the circuit itself has much more going on than the little green one did.
Its capable of low and high gain and is suitable for all types of player, it runs at 18v internally from your usual 9v supply. You get your typical Drive Vol and Tone controls, along with the gain mode toggle for low and high and then the 5th control is a blend pot, which allows you to blend your overdriven tone with your clean tone...clever eh! SRV tones in abundance in this little box of joy.
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.
How can you not like The Wasteman? He comes on a Wednesday and takes your waste!
I Wonder What it Compares to
This kit compares to JHS' Moonshine V2.
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 4 knobs for this kit. I suggest you get medium 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.
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.
