Compact size, increased complexity, reduced build time: these are just a few of the benefits of PCB construction. With the rise of integrated circuits in the 1970s, printed circuit boards quickly found their way into nearly all consumer electronics and with that came an explosion of small companies creating effects pedals for guitar players. The Nexus Series offers DIY builders both classic and contemporary effects in compact enclosures with reduced wiring. These kits provide users with all required parts to build a complete stompbox using printed circuit boards.
Point-to-point construction has been a tried-and-true method of building electronics since the discovery of electricity. From the earliest circuits to the complex assemblies of the space age, mission critical electronics have put point-to-point construction through its paces. The Terminus Series is a return to form in both construction and circuit design, allowing you to take part in this traditional method of circuit building that thousands of engineers and designers have relied on through the years. The end result of your work will be a hand-built pedal that pushes the boundaries of sound.
The Saturator is an overdrive pedal kit that can cover a wide range of gain effects, transitioning smoothly from a massive clean boost to a warm and saturated distortion with the turn of a knob.
At the dawn of the 20th century, a groundbreaking invention introduced the world to complex electronics - the vacuum tube. These components would find their way into the homes of millions, providing high-quality audio at the twist of a knob. While vacuum tubes have been replaced in many circuit designs, they still shine in guitar amplifiers; guitar amps have been powered by tubes since the 1940s and tube-driven amps are key to the sound of countless famous guitar players. The Animus Series provides the experience of building vacuum-tube-driven circuits from the ground up. All parts, including the chassis, are provided along with detailed instructions. These kits result in a unique piece of equipment with an all-tube signal path, built and wired by hand.
