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 pre-amp 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.

This is an easy build kit with point to point wiring and clear, easy to follow instructions. The current draw of this pedal is very low at 1.3 milliamps, allowing for long battery life. All you need to provide is solder, soldering iron and a few simple tools.

This is a very good put together kit. The instructions are very well written for a person that is not electrically inclined. I built this kit for my son and he loves it. It is everything he expected.
I would highly recommend this kit!!

Easy to put together and reasonably priced. I modded it a little and put a 9V jack. The distortion won't win any tone awards but works well as a boost. I use it last in the effects loop chain to goose the output tubes.

For the price and fun of saying you built it, this is a great pedal. Anyone with moderate soldering skills can hammer this build out in no time. All together took probably only an hour to put together and test. Pedal sounds great and acts as two pedals in one, first a really nice clean boost and second a great overdrive that goes from subtle to fuzz. Plays very well with my Carvin tube amp.
