The Persuader Deluxe utilizes a Darlington preamp to push cascaded triode vacuum tubes into distortion. Four dual triode vacuum tubes are included with each kit (JJ 5751, 12AX7B China, JJ 12AU7 and a NOS USA made 12AT7). Swap to create a wide range of tones from just a hint of break up from the JJ 5751 to over the top crunchy distortion using the NOS US made 12AT7. A boost switch provides an additional layer of flexibility with added gain and a little extra bottom end. An LED indicator lights up when the Persuader Deluxe is engaged and not in true bypass mode.
Can I buy the kit without the extra vacuum tubes?
Would you consider making a larger version of this with 2 or more sockets in it that we could switch between? Each tube sounds so different and it would be great to just switch between them.
This has an interesting transistor Fuzzface type of overdrive. Can you suggest a different/less clipping transistor, or a way to make it sound more like a subtle tube overdrive sound?
