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!"

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?
Hi! Great product, sounds good! I have a question about the Gain Knob, let's say it goes from 0 to 10. The pot does very little variation between 0 and 8. And then, all the gain is to be added between 8 and 10, which is pretty difficult to dial a precise gain tone... Is it possible to have instructions to obtains a more "linear" gain increase and more subtle, starting sooner on the potentiometer? Is this a resistor thing? Also, what are the mods you suggest If I want to try different types of tones, gain stages with this pedal? Different Mosfet? Different caps? Thank You! Bruno
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?
This has to do with the way the pot works with the BS170. A scratching sound is normal.
