The Thunderdrive is an overdrive pedal kit that will provide a signal boost at low gain settings and it's own distortion at maximum gain settings. You can use it to push your preamp into overdrive or as a source of smooth distortion. Using point to point wiring and easy to follow instructions you can have a working overdrive pedal in a matter of hours. All you need to provide is solder and a soldering iron. Uses 9 volt battery which is not included.
This is my first diy pedal that I built solo. If I can do it, you can do it.
This is a brief overview and demo of the Thunderdrive Pedal kit from modkitsdiy.com.
Been very impressed by the quality and tone the pedals I've ordered from MODKitsDIY. My latest MODKitsDIY pedal builds are the Thunderdrive standard and deluxe (black casing).
Hi, I noticed the Transistor in the schematic is different from in the instructions. Which one is the kit supposed to come with?
Does it come with a 9volt adapter port?
When adding a DC jack, is it the same wiring as the Thunder Drive Deluxe pedal?
Can the DPDT foot switch be oriented any way? In the diagram the poles are numbered 1-6, and the pedal doesn’t work for me. I want to make sure I didn’t wire it upside down or backwards. Thank you!
My signal comes through when the pedal isn’t engaged but when I turn it on nothing comes through. Also I get a reading of 4.5 volts at the the transistors collector but I can’t seem to figure out what the issue is.
Has anyone built this for use with a bass?
