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

Landgraff - Dynamic Overdrive

I didn't realise that I hadn't posted this before. Anyhow, the Landgraff Dynamic Overdrive, is, wait for it, a Tubescreamer with a 2 position toggle switch to change the clipping diode type from simple silicon diodes to red LEDs. hmmmmmmm, it's all very familiar...

It's got a great tone;

Check out the schematic below... (See who it's drawn by ;-) ooooooooooohohhhhhhhwwwww) for fun compare the Landgraff Dynamic Overdrive and the Clay Jones Overdrive....


  1. Bwahaha! Bloody brilliant! Keep it coming, guys. I can only imagine what some of the snobs on TGP must be thinking over the past few months.

  2. Hi mr Briggs
    I have a question for you if you dont mind. Iv built the landgraff using the vero layout above.
    It works fine except for one thing. The tone kontroll dosent work, it seems like it is none existing.
    If you turn it down it seems like the entire circuit gets throug and then turning it clockwise nothing happens until you reach max all sound vanish. I then changed to a new pot and cecked my wiring. But still the same phenomen but now when turned down it dosent let everything throug but nohting happens untill max and all sound disappeares. What do you think? It is the cond, in the hipass or lowpass fliter that is broken ? Or what
    Ok thanks again
