K-MOD102 Amp Kit - MOD® Kits, MOD102 guitar amplifier
The MOD 102 is a great place to start for those interested in building their own tube amp. It is based on a classic American tube-circuit design combined with a British style Class A output tube section. At low volume it produces a clean chimey tone that moves into smooth overdrive at higher volumes. All parts are included along with a pre-drilled steel chassis, wire and tubes (1 EL84 and 1 12AX7). Puts out at least 5 watts. The chassis layout is open for easy assembly using the clear, easy to follow instructions.

K-MOD102-PLUS Amp Kit - MOD® Kits, MOD102+ guitar amp
The MOD102+ expands on the same all analog vacuum tube classic American circuit design combined with a British style Class A output section as the Original MOD102 with added additional “+” features. These special features include a three position progressive toggle switch for off-standby-power and additional push-pull functionality for each control - pull out the bass control knob for “mid boost”, pull out the treble control knob for “bright”, pull out the volume control knob for “turbo”.

K-MOD103 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).

K-997 Effects Pedal Kit - MOD® Kits, Erratic Clutch Deluxe
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.
$72.95
K-978 Effects Pedal Kit - MOD® Kits, Step Ladder, Input Attenuator
The Step Ladder is a passive input attenuator using high quality components for excellent reliability. True-bypass mode provides the maximum signal level. The attenuator pot and two toggle switches allow for flexibility in the amount of signal attenuation when not in bypass mode. Treble bleed capacitors in the circuit retain crisp high frequencies even at maximum attenuation. The Step Ladder is ideal for anything from getting a slight boost while playing single-note acoustic guitar leads or for jumping from clean to overdrive in a high-gain electric guitar amp.
$36.95
K-977 Effects Pedal Kit - MOD® Kits, Suspended Chime, Chorus, Delay
The Suspended Chime has two powerful effects in one pedal - chorus and chorus/delay. The Suspended Chime features a blend knob which allows you to go from subtle to lush chorus effect in either set up. Using the toggle switch, you can add a 190 millisecond delay to the chorus introducing special depth to your tone. Varying the dry/wet mix can fatten your rhythms or produce a shimmering 12-string sound. The Suspended Chime kit comes equipped with an LED indicator and industry standard 9 volt center negative power jack. MOD® Kits are designed to give both novice and experienced musicians the opportunity to build their own amps and effects pedals. All kits come with easy to follow instructions and use point to point wiring. Pre-drilled enclosure and all parts are included. All you need to provide are hand tools, a soldering iron and solder. All effects pedals operate on a 9V battery.
$99.95
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.
$47.95
K-996 Effects Pedal Kit - MOD® Kits, The Penetrator, Treble Boost
The Penetrator is a treble boost pedal kit with enough gain to cut straight through any mix. This pedal adds glistening harmonics that get loud enough to saturate your amp’s front end. Adjust the level knob to vary the output so there’s no mistaking when you kick this pedal in. Great for solos or when you need your guitar front and center.
$38.95
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. 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.
$75.95
K-920 Effects Pedal Kit - MOD® Kits, The Piledriver, Power Boost
The Piledriver is a clean-boost kit that will provide up to 38dB of gain to your guitar signal. Use it to push your preamp into overdrive or as a line driver if you are experiencing signal degradation from your effects chain. This is a simple kit and great for beginners!
$27.95
K-901 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.
$47.95
K-991 Effects Pedal Kit - MOD® Kits, The Rock Bottom, Bass Fuzz
The Rock Bottom is a bass fuzz kit that gives you all of the sizzle you'd expect from a vintage fuzz without sacrificing those low frequencies. Use the blend pot to set your fuzz levels and dial in the volume to get that sound you need. This versatile pedal can be used for the sludgiest bass tones to the cleanest boost and everything in-between.
$43.95
K-999 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.
