What people are saying about The Piledriver:

"If you're a pedal lover like me, who's always wanted to try their hand at building one, but have zero experience, then this is the pedal for you."

"This is a good clean boost and was easy to assemble. Fun little project and I recommend it."

"This kit was so easy to build and now it's my go to cut-through-the-bologna pedal. I use it at large jam session house parties. If there's some drunko playin' too loud, I stomp on this to cut through that bologna!"

The pot sounds scratchy when I turn the knob, is there a fix for this?

Yes. The pot in the Piledriver circuit has a DC voltage across its terminals and this makes the pot sound "scratchy" when you turn the knob. We have provided a schematic showing how to isolate the pot from DC voltage by adding a 47uF cap and 1.5K resistor at the MOSFET source terminal.
