If you’ve been following this blog for a while.. you would know I’m very interested in pedal building/hacking and general tweaking with electronics. Since I started, I’ve been noticing a steady increase in skill level and general electronics understanding (don’t take me wrong.. still have a million more miles to go). During this, I’ve had a great time actually making things that I play. There is a great satisfaction and feeling of accomplishment when you step on a creation… and it does.. what it’s suppose to do!
So this leads me to this post. Today, I wanted to talk about Mod Kits DIY. Here we have a business that has some sweet kits for the guitarists out there. Along with a few pedal kits, they’re offering a amp kit as well. I would love to try an amp some day.
Here is their official press release:
ModTM Kits are designed to give both novice and experienced musicians the opportunity to build their own amps and effects pedals.Â All kits come with easy to follow instructions and use point-to-point wiring.Â Pre-drilled enclosure and all parts are included.Â All you need to provide are hand tools, a soldering iron and solder.Â All effect pedals operate on a 9V battery.
MOD 101 Guitar Amp Kit – 60 watts of tube power using your choice of either 6L6 tubes or EL34 tubes.Â Choose from 32 different variations of the circuit to suit your tonal preferences.
The Rattler Pedal Kit – an easy to build kit that has the fuzz sound of the 60’s and 70’s.
The Piledriver Pedal Kit – this clean boost kit provides up to 38dB of gain to your guitar signal.Â Use it to push your preamp into overdrive or as a line driver if you are experiencing signal degradation from your effects chain.
The Verb Pedal Kit – Build your own digital reverb pedal.Â Get sweet, warm reverb tone using the Belton Digi-Log module.
And the newest addition to the line:
The Persuader Pedal Kit – Make your own tube pre-amp pedal built around a real 12AX7 tube.Â Go from clean warm to smooth tube overdrive.
