The Piledriver utilizes a point to point wiring layout using terminal strips rather than a circuit board. This is done to make a step by step build easier and to help the builder learn the circuit's signal path. This method requires a slightly larger enclosure.

Due to the design of this pedal, a germanium transistor would not work.

It will depend on the LED used. For the P-L400 led, we use a 1/2W carbon film 820 ohm resistor.

Hey Jon. We don't have any photos of this mod. We do carry a new footswitch PCB that simplifies the wiring for these mod. It is P-PC-3PDT-BOARD. Check out the page on it here to see some wiring diagrams. https://www.tubesandmore.com/3pdt-board

great boost for bass that can be installed onboard. just change .1uF cap to 1uF. you gotta install a socket for the BS170 and try out several because the specs are inconsistent. don't get them from Asia because they are counterfeits

Super easy kit to build, did exactly what was expected. Can't beat this kit for the price.
