Product Description

THE PSYCHO KNOB KIT:

It's like injecting four different boost/distortion pedals inside your guitar or amp!

 

FOR GUITAR:  This simple knob requires only simple soldering to place between your volume/tone knobs and the guitar jack.  No more tap dancing on a pedal board to get the boost or overdrive you need. Now comes with leads pre-wired to the board to make it even easier for you!

 

FOR CIGAR BOX AMPLIFIERS:  Get more volume and add those tasty effects to your project.   

  • Position 1: True Bypass/Passive (no effects)

  • Position 2: Clean Booster

  • Position 3: Blues Overdrive

  • Position 4: Rock Distortion

  • Position 5: Heavy Metal

EASILY HACKABLE:  An onboard trim pot allows you to adjust the gain.  Optional:  Pop off the trim pot and wire in a panel-mount gain pot for even more control. (Note: Hack instructions and gain pot not included in this kit).

 

Artec QDD2 Quadra Distortion Driver board, simple component that allows you to add killer distortion effects directly to your guitar or amplifier (including cigar box guitars and amps). Featuring a 5-position selector pot built in, with "true bypass" and then four levels of distortion effects. This circuit has been built to simulate classic "overdrive"-style tones, and it is like having four of the best known overdrive pedal and tube amp tones built right into your guitar or amp.

This board is powered by a 9-volt battery, and the battery connector is included (though the battery is not!). Please see the board diagram and wiring diagram photos for an idea of how to wire up this board.

We include a 2-page guide with each of these boards to help you get going on getting it wired up. Please note that if you are building this board into an amplifier, it should go BEFORE the amp circuit, as shown in the wiring diagram.

These work fine with our Artec SDA-T amp boards, but you should be aware that in our testing Position 5/Heavy Metal on this board is just too much for the SDA-T amp board and isn't really usable. However, the other 3 effects sound great! Also note that in our testing, trying to use the same 9-volt battery for both this board and the SDA-T board yielded feedback and other noise, so we recommend having two separate batteries for the two boards.
