We include a standalone HTML file with each of our boards that helps show you what parts go where (find it in the “Build Docs & Extra Info” Tab)- just extract the zip file to a folder and open the .html file in your internet browser. You can use the table on the left to tick off the parts as you source them / add them to the board – we found its a very handy and a big shout out to Interactive HTML BOM Plugin which is a free plugin on GitHub used to generate these.
The V-Box is our faithful take on the Lovepedal Englishman Overdrive.
Designed to emulate the classic VOX AC15 / AC30 amps at the point of face melting breakdown - it's become a really popular pedal...with a really hefty price tag!
The circuit will enhance the sound of any amplifier without altering the tone of your guitar. It can act as a super clean boost, semi clean boost, or with the volume & gain cranked higher, it is capable of pushing any amp into beautiful harmonic breakup, overdrive and distortion. With 3 way toggle modes, the “FAIL” switch goes from natural overdrive to downright amplifier distortion in a good way.
Built around a single transistor and drawing from the EHX LPB-1 booster with switchable diodes at the output.
- Fail (toggle)
Note: Remember to socket your transistor.
