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

Toneczar Openhaus - Distortion and Overdrive

Anyhow - here is the latest offering from the wonderful freestompboxes.org - the ToneCzar Openhaus distortion. It's a pretty brutal distortion circuit (it's build complexity it pretty high too!) Here's a link to the ToneCzar Openhaus instruction manual: http://toneczar.com/downloads/features-openh.pdf

Here's a demo video:
