K-965 Effects Pedal Kit - MOD® Kits, The Contortionist II, Fuzz
The Contortionist II kit is an all analog, high octane fuzz box. It produces fuzz with layered octave overtones similar to those produced by an electronic-bow. The frequency multiplier circuitry creates harmonics that swell and recede depending on gain setting, pick attack, neck position and pickup. This is a high gain circuit that can put out up to 2 volts and will provide ample amounts of sustain. The Contortionist II has all the features of the original Contortionist with an added tone control for a wider range of sounds, and an LED that lights up when the unit is activated.

K-980 Effects Pedal Kit - MOD® Kits, The Persuader Deluxe, Overdrive
The Persuader Deluxe utilizes a Darlington preamp to push cascaded triode vacuum tubes into distortion. Four dual triode vacuum tubes are included with each kit (JJ 5751, 12AX7B China, JJ 12AU7 and a NOS USA-made 12AT7). Swap to create a wide range of tones from just a hint of break up from the JJ 5751 to over the top crunchy distortion using the NOS US made 12AT7. 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.

K-955 Effects Pedal Kit - MOD® Kits, The Thunderdrive Deluxe, Overdrive

The pre-painted black enclosure, red control knobs and red LED indicator give the Thunderdrive Deluxe an understated attractive finish. It is capable of overdriving the preamp section of your guitar amp or adding it's own layer of distortion at lower volume. The current draw of this pedal is very low at 1.3 milliamps, allowing for long battery life.

K-956 Effects Pedal Kit - MOD® Kits, The Thunderdrive Deluxe LTD, Overdrive
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.

K-997 Effects Pedal Kit - MOD® Kits, The Erratic Clutch Deluxe, Fuzz / Divider
The Erratic Clutch Deluxe is a unique effect pedal kit that gives you fuzzy square wave distortion as well as a monophonic sub-octave square wave using a total of only four transistors. The two signals can be used individually or mixed together for a raw and sonically rich synthy output. Full of character and quirk, this pedal will give you a truly original sound. The middle knob is the bias control. This adjusts the pulse width in the initial fuzz stage of the pedal. Set this knob to fit your pickups and playing style. The closer to the center the longer the note will sustain but with that comes more chaotic tracking for the divider. Moving it more clockwise or counterclockwise will give you more predictable note tracking on the divider with less sustain.

M-OD808 Effects Pedal - Maxon, OD808, Overdrive
The Original Overdrive! The OD808 is often imitated but never matched! Identical to the 1970s circuit and featuring the JRC4558 IC chip, it offers warm, smooth, transparent overdrive that'll make your rig scream! The OD808's dynamically responsive circuitry reacts precisely to individual playing styles, letting the true voice of any instrument or artist shine through. Don't settle for copies when you can have the original. The OD808 Reissue offers up all the warm, creamy, organic overdrive as the original and then some. Never one to rest on their laurels, Maxon has tweaked the current version ever so slightly to reduce noise level while retaining the legendary “808" tone. The OD808 is the perfect pedal for adding smooth, tube-like overdrive to any clean amp – use it as a secondary dirt channel to beef up a song's chorus section, or keep it on all the time for the crunchy tone that has defined rock and roll.

M-OD9 Effects Pedal - Maxon, OD9, Overdrive
Improved circuitry featuring the JRC4558 IC yields the ultra-smooth, creamy, dynamic overdrive so sought after by guitarists.
Overdrive and output level controls adjust the intensity of overdrive and output volume, while the Hi Boost/Hi Cut Tone control adjusts the brightness from warm and smooth to sizzling hot.
While the M-OD808 may have been the first overdrive circuit of its kind, it was the OD-9 that cemented this sound in the history of Rock & Roll guitar. Looking at the OD-9's circuit, you'll realize that this is not some redesign being cleverly marketed as a reissue – this is THE original OD-9 (TS-9) circuit, yet with the addition of true bypass switching.
