Effects Pedal Kit - MOD® Kits, The Rattler Returns, Distortion
To celebrate the 10 year anniversary of Mod® kits, we are re-releasing a new and improved version of the original Mod pedal - The Rattler. This fan favorite is making its long-awaited comeback as The Rattler Returns. The Rattler Returns offers the same over-the-top fuzz as the original Rattler and features several new upgrades. The circuit has been overhauled for a wider spectrum of fuzz that is steady when used with any pickups, pedals, or amps. The Rattler Returns preserves the diode clipping, a crucial component of the classic raw fuzz/distortion in the original but also features a diode lift switch. With the lift engaged, the pedal can hit volumes that easily drive any tube or pedal with fuzzed out guitar tones. The pedal now operates on +9V, so standard DC power supplies can be used in lieu of a battery if you choose.
Effects Pedal Kit - MOD® Kits, The Rock Bottom, Bass Fuzz
The Rock Bottom is a bass fuzz kit that gives you all of the sizzle you'd expect from a vintage fuzz without sacrificing those low frequencies. Use the blend pot to set your fuzz levels and dial in the volume to get that sound you need. This versatile pedal can be used for the sludgiest bass tones to the cleanest boost and everything in-between.
Snubber Kit - eliminate fuzz from amplifier
Snubber parts kit for circuits. Used to build a "snubber circuit" to remove unwanted high frequencies and high voltages resulting from output transformer ringing in a guitar amplifier, without the "brick wall" effect of using diodes.
Effects Pedal Kit - MOD® Kits, Erratic Clutch Deluxe
The Erratic Clutch Deluxe is a unique effect pedal kit that gives you fuzzy square wave distortion as well as a monophonic sub-octave square wave using a total of only four transistors. The two signals can be used individually or mixed together for a raw and sonically rich synthy output. Full of character and quirk, this pedal will give you a truly original sound. The middle knob is the bias control. This adjusts the pulse width in the initial fuzz stage of the pedal. Set this knob to fit your pickups and playing style. The closer to the center the longer the note will sustain but with that comes more chaotic tracking for the divider. Moving it more clockwise or counterclockwise will give you more predictable note tracking on the divider with less sustain.

Effects Pedal - TWA, Flyboys FB-03, Echo
The TWA Flyboys FB-03 is a massive sounding delay pedal in a tiny package. This pedal takes you from the snappiest slapback sounds to big spacious delays with over 600 milliseconds of delay time. The bright and articulate delay signal keeps the mix crisp and transparent while the repeats add a touch of modulation for a warm tape like sound as the signal decays. The FB-03 Echo can go from one repeat to infinite repeats putting the pedal into self oscillation for wild feedback effects. The FB-03 Echo also features a true bypass footswitch and comes with a DC jack to battery clip converter cable.

Effects Pedal Kit - MOD® Kits, The Verb Deluxe, Digital Reverb
The Verb Deluxe kit is built around the Belton Digi-Log Mini Module (P-RBTDR-2H-X) for a great digital reverb sound. The Belton Digi-Log module was built as a replacement for traditional spring reverberation units. Features include both Dwell and Mix controls, allowing the dry signal to be blended with the processed signal from a just hint of reverb to deep, cavernous echoes. The dwell control adds an extra flexibility, providing a full palette of sweet reverb sound. The effect pedal operates on a 9V battery. For a longer lasting option, a 9-volt adapter can be purchased separately. The Godlyke 9-volt adapter (M-PAS-S) may be purchased separately to power your new pedal.

Kit - Fender® Stratocaster® Mid Boost Kit
Genuine Fender® Mid Boost upgrade kit for Strats with active electronics. This circuit is used in the signature Eric Clapton and Buddy Guy strats and is commonly referred to as the Clapton Boost. The Mid Boost knob adjusts gain from 0 dB (no boost) to 25 dB (maximum boosted mids). This boost sounds great clean and adds powerful control to distortion.
Effects Kit - MOD® Kits, The Wave, Spring Reverb
The Wave is a versatile stand-alone, tube driven analog spring reverb unit kit. It can be used in front of your guitar amp or as a line-level analog reverb effect for the recording studio. Two controls allow you to serve up a wide range of wetness from just a touch to over the top psychedelia. The Dwell control adjusts the input signal level driving the tank and the Reverb control adjusts the level of output reverberations from the tank. The Wave's all tube design utilizes four dual triode vacuum tubes - three 12AX7s and one 12AT7 - and comes with a MOD® three-spring reverb tank. MOD® reverb tanks are deemed the closest to the original reverb tanks from the '60s made today. The Wave's reverb function can be switched in and out pop-free via the front panel toggle or with a footswitch. Footswitch sold separately (see P-H470 for compatible footswitch).
