When I started EffectsBay way back in 2009, I used the site to talk about effects, but I was also just getting into electronics. I was networking with builders that did mods specifically – since I thought some basic mods would be at my skill level, but later wanted to actually build pedals. During those times (to the present), I played around with Build Your Own Clone (BYOC), General Guitar Gadgets (GGG), etc and built and modified kits, and generally experimented. It was totally fun, and I still love it today.
A long time sponsor of Effects Bay is MOD Kits DIY. These guys are absolutely fantastic and offer extremely basic kits to complex builds – including tube amps. If you’re interested in music electronics, this site is pretty amazing with awesome kits.
MOD Kits DIY were curious if I could mention a new kit they’re offering – absolutely!
Here is their official press release for the Ring Resonator Deluxe:
The Ring Resonator Deluxe is like having two all analog pedals in one. It contains the octave-up fuzz effect of the original Ring Resonator with added LED, push-push output pot and mini-toggle switch. With the push-push output pot down, the octave-up effect is removed and fuzz-only is achieved. In the fuzz-only mode of operation the toggle switch allows you to switch between dark fuzz and bright fuzz tones.
MODTM Kits and Assemblies are designed to give novice and experienced musicians the opportunity to build or modify their own amps, effects pedals and guitars. All kits come with easy-to-follow instructions and use point-to-point wiring. All effect pedals and amplifiers come with a pre-drilled enclosure and all necessary parts are included. All you need to provide are hand tools, a soldering iron and solder. The effect pedal operates on a 9V battery; for a longer lasting option, a 9-volt adapter can be purchased separately.
You can purchase the Ring Resonator Deluxe Kit for $74.95 directly from their website.
