Build your own tube pre-amp pedal built around a JJ 12AX7 tube. Go from clean, warm tone to smooth, real tube overdrive.
This kit includes pre-drilled die-cast aluminum enclosure and all parts with easy-to-follow instructions. All you need to provide is solder and soldering iron.
The Persuader allows for easy access to the tube, giving you the ability to quickly experiment with different tube brands and 12AX7 tube relatives. A JJ 12AX7 is included with this kit.
Operates on a 9 volt battery or AC adapter, which is not included.
What people are saying about The Persuader:
"Great pedal and cool color! It makes a handy tube tester besides a real tube overdrive, you can get different gains and tones with an assortment of various tubes. Excellent and easy to follow instuctions with layout pictures, and you make it yourself!" "Very fun. Took me 5 hours to assemble, I've got almost no experience on the solder iron. It has got the good fuzz." "I really wanted a tube overdrive and this worked out great! It took me four hours, but it was well worth it, and the best part - is that I BUILT IT MYSELF!"

I just built this great sound tube drive pedal by MODKITSDIY. Its the Persuader. It took me about five hours to put it all together.
Shot this video to compare tone difference between on old surplus RCA brand, mil spec'd, USA made 12AU7 preamp tube with the Chinese made 12AX7B preamp tube that was included with the Persuader kit
This is my third youtube video demo on the MODKitsDIY The Persuader Tube Drive.
Is this the same as the Persuader Deluxe without the tubes?
Can I swap out the tube in this pedal?
Would this work for bass guitar?
Hello. is it possible to purchase this kit in France or Europe? Thank you.
I built the Persuader tube pedal, and it sounds great. I have an issue with the Gain pot. It is scratchy while adjusting. I've checked every connection, and I've tried two different, high quality pots, and they all have the same issue. It's not an issue while playing, it's just an annoyance while adjusting - fairly loud through the amp. Have you had this issue before? Any recommendations?
What does the BS170 (and similarly the MPSA14 in the Persuader Deluxe) do? Is that being used as a voltage regulator?
Would this work as a preamp (for direct into a PA)
Can it be used on a transistor amp?
can i use any tube that is not a 12ax7
How much current does it draw? I'm adding it to a setup and need to make sure my power supply is sufficient.
Building the Persuader Deluxe: test points show no volts on MPSA 13 Trans at A or C. 'B' has the 7.3 VDC though. There is NO SOUND from the pedal. All solder joints good, multiple checks. Could the Transistor be faulty? overheated? Thank You!
Along with a friend of mine who introduced me to your site we feel that the postage and Customs fees would be high for your kits purchased individually. You have however added a great deal of detail, work and effort to your site. In fact, enough for us to build a kit with UK sourced parts. We fully appreciate all of the effort you have made so would we each be able to donate something to you via PayPal in return? Kindest regards, Andy Riches
