The Thunderdrive Deluxe LTD is an overdrive pedal kit that will provide a strong clean signal boost in the early gain settings and smooth distortion at maximum gain settings. Adjusting output and distortion controls provides a wide variety of tones in spite of its simple construction. It is capable of overdriving the preamp section of your guitar amp or adding its own layer of distortion at lower volume. This version is equipped with a three position diode selector switch.

The switch offers three different settings and tones. The top position is the classic silicon clipping diodes used in the original Thunderdrive. The middle position gives you the lifted diode "turbo" sound from the Deluxe model. The bottom position is a new setting limited to this version using germanium diodes for a warm vintage distortion.

Easy to build. All parts were in the kit. Do read instructions once before starting to build. The back plate caused a short so I put some packing tape on the switch terminals and on the side of the output jack... not sure if this was the design, more than likely I didn’t recess the switch base enough. I would certainly buy another.

Sounds good. Silicon diodes are more fuzzy than I expected. Turbo setting is super loud and the distortion knob effects it significantly (overdrives the preamp with ease). Germanium setting is my favorite. While it’s quieter than the others it’s more responsive to volume changes on the guitar as far as distortion goes. Active pickups (emg81 and sa1) might be too much for any dynamic response. Passive pickups were more pleasant on this pedal.

Bass guitar sounds great through this pedal.

I do believe my favorite use was applying it to a synth output... a boring vanilla synth had so much character and little subtleties were made pronounced.
