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?
Has anyone built this for use with a bass?
Hi, The 2 caps for the pots sent were different than the ones in the schematics. Is this on purpose now? They are 2 different sizes but the same overall build. One is slightly smaller and reads "104 J" while the bigger reads "ic 50E. MB(or 6/E?)R.022k 250H Any help?
Can this be wired for an led ?
Is there a possible way that I could order single replacement parts? The transistor that was in my kit brokeoff it's emitter when I tried to bend it in place and now the transistor can't connect it's emitter.
When wiring the drop down resistor for the led, does it have to be a 1/2watt resistor, will a 1/4 watt work?
