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 instructions 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!"
