Pedal Kit - Mod® Electronics, The Contortionist II, Fuzz
The Mod® Electronics 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.

1 answers Are all your pedal kits battery operated? I don't like to count on batteries.

The majority of MOD kits have a 9V adapter included, this particular kit being one of them, but some of the MOD Kits DIY pedals are only battery operated.
Excellent build, you can go from light fuzz boost to brutal doom fuzz. I love it.
This pedal sounds great. I’ve never had a fuzz before but figured this would be a good quarantine project. Sounded good through the clean side of my deluxe but comes alive rhrough an Orange OR-15 dialed in with a slight crunch. I’m a fuzz addict now and haven’t even ran it into the Marshall yet!
Great pedals for the novice builder! This was my second successful build from Mod Kits. I've only been building for a few weeks now and this is building my confidence! The fuzz pedal sounds great!!! Thank you!!!
for a novice like me the build was challenging, but with the step by step directions and illustrations, all went well !! The pedal is a screamer of a fuzz pedal with octave trails, a
nice addition to my board.
