Welcome to the Revolution

Hi there, welcome to my blog - La Revolution Deux. It's an odd name - but I like it! Here you will find all the info on my various DIY Guitar effects builds, amplifiers and guitars. Everything from a humble Ibanez tubescreamer to the holiest KLON Overdrive.

You may also find a few effects builds that I am looking to move on - usually in exchange for other effects/gear/cash. You can always check my ebay account to see what I've got up for grabs.

Have fun, enjoy the blog - Fred Briggs :-)


Feel free to get in contact with me about anything you see on this blog or with any general questions about guitars, amplifiers and effects, I'll be happy to answer! Just click the button above to email me directly or alternately my email address is fredbriggs2007 [at] googlemail [dot] com

Clay Jones OD Clone?

Above is a gutshot of a new OD that is currently being offered as a clone of the Clay Jones OD. What do you recon? Tubescreamer or not? Why all the goop? Hopefully when "Kris" has made his $$$ he can put the whole thing to bed and explain if he did reverse engineer a CJOD and produce and accurate schematic!

Here is a youtube video comparing the two: http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=hQcsK8QU4b4

For now - I still havnt seen any evidence to suggest anything but a Tubescreamer!


  1. I built a CJOD clone according to this schematic and sold it to a guy who owns an original CJOD. He said it isn't even close to an original. He didn't say it wasn't a good pedal, but he said it wasn't the same has his CJOD.

  2. Please see the CJOD= Landgraff DOD page for furthur detail on the history of the tracing of the CJOD and why the circuit matches both the BMOD and LDOD.

    Unfortunately I never posted up pictures of all the CJOD boards that we had images of, all of which matched the BMOD and previous CJOD layouts.

    I'm bored of this "It's not a TS", it is...

    End of.
