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

Suhr - Riot

Super High Gain Mayhem. That's what the Suhr Riot is great at. There is a project available for the pedal now online at freestompboxes.org. Go and check it out, tune down and mosh off ;-)

Customary demo video;

Here are some cool photo's taken by CultureJam:

I'm just going to send you to where you need to go to get this built - the brilliant www.madbeanpedals.com (His site, pcbs and projects are top quality and I would recommend them to anyone looking to build DIY fx, make sure you check out his whole website) - http://www.madbeanpedals.com/projects/Uproar/docs/Uproar.pdf

Here's the freestompboxes topic; http://freestompboxes.org/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=10133

Thanks to all those involved. Originally this was a project undertaken by the Freestompboxes "Tracer's Fund" which is a communal pot that goes into buying and developing projects of the latest and greatest boutique fad boxes. Take a trip over to the forum if you're interested in getting involved :-)
