Effects Pedal Kit - MOD® Kits, The Rattler Returns, Distortion
To celebrate the 10 year anniversary of Mod® kits, we are re-releasing a new and improved version of the original Mod pedal - The Rattler. This fan favorite is making its long-awaited comeback as The Rattler Returns. The Rattler Returns offers the same over-the-top fuzz as the original Rattler and features several new upgrades. The circuit has been overhauled for a wider spectrum of fuzz that is steady when used with any pickups, pedals, or amps. The Rattler Returns preserves the diode clipping, a crucial component of the classic raw fuzz/distortion in the original but also features a diode lift switch. With the lift engaged, the pedal can hit volumes that easily drive any tube or pedal with fuzzed out guitar tones. The pedal now operates on +9V, so standard DC power supplies can be used in lieu of a battery if you choose.
Effects Pedal Kit - MOD® Kits, The Verb Deluxe, Digital Reverb
The Verb Deluxe kit is built around the Belton Digi-Log Mini Module (P-RBTDR-2H-X) for a great digital reverb sound. The Belton Digi-Log module was built as a replacement for traditional spring reverberation units. Features include both Dwell and Mix controls, allowing the dry signal to be blended with the processed signal from a just hint of reverb to deep, cavernous echoes. The dwell control adds an extra flexibility, providing a full palette of sweet reverb sound. The effect pedal operates on a 9V battery. For a longer lasting option, a 9-volt adapter can be purchased separately. The Godlyke 9-volt adapter (M-PAS-S) may be purchased separately to power your new pedal.
Guitar Wiring Upgrade Kit - Mod® Electronics, 3 Position Telecaster
The K-GMOD-1 is a vintage style wiring kit for Telecaster guitars. Use this kit to upgrade your current Tele electronics to high quality parts.

Effects Kit - MOD® Kits, The Wave, Spring Reverb
The Wave is a versatile stand-alone, tube driven analog spring reverb unit kit. It can be used in front of your guitar amp or as a line-level analog reverb effect for the recording studio. Two controls allow you to serve up a wide range of wetness from just a touch to over the top psychedelia. The Dwell control adjusts the input signal level driving the tank and the Reverb control adjusts the level of output reverberations from the tank. The Wave's all tube design utilizes four dual triode vacuum tubes - three 12AX7s and one 12AT7 - and comes with a MOD® three-spring reverb tank. MOD® reverb tanks are deemed the closest to the original reverb tanks from the '60s made today. The Wave's reverb function can be switched in and out pop-free via the front panel toggle or with a footswitch. Footswitch sold separately (see P-H470 for compatible footswitch).

Effects Pedal Kit - MOD® Kits, The Saturator
The Saturator is an overdrive pedal kit that can cover a wide range of gain effects, transitioning smoothly from a massive clean boost to a warm and saturated distortion with the turn of a knob. The saturation is controlled with the Soak knob, which dials in the amount of symmetrical soft-clipping applied to the guitar signal. When fully counterclockwise, the signal is unaffected and clean. Rotating the knob clockwise will incrementally increase the soft-clipping, morphing from a clean signal through subtle-to-heavy saturated overdrive sounds and straight into distortion territory. The Level knob sets the overall volume of the clean or saturated output. Unity gain is at roughly 8 o'clock. With the Soak set to clean, rotating the Level knob clockwise will increase the level to upwards of 30dB.
Effects Pedal Kit - MOD® Kits, The Persuader Deluxe, Overdrive
The Persuader Deluxe utilizes a Darlington preamp to push cascaded triode vacuum tubes into distortion. 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. Operates on a 9V battery or AC adapter, which is not included. When completed, this pedal draws considerable current and battery life will be short. The Godlyke 9-volt adapter (M-PAS-S) may be purchased separately to power your new pedal.
