REDesign Boom Box distortion pedal, my first ever distortion pedal. I purposely built the circuit to produce a medium gain distortion, with a fairly narrow range of gain adjustment. This pedal won’t do metal, but I find it works well for rock and is great for rhythm guitar.
The pedal features controls for volume, gain and tone. The gain and volume controls are somewhat interactive, higher gain levels also increase the volume.This pedal doesn’t do clean sounds, even at the lowest gain setting. The tone control is a treble cut filter similar those found on most pedals, although voiced differently, and has more effect at higher gain settings.
