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

Late posting but hilarious all the same; Freakish Blues rip-off merchants!

Aparently the "boutique" pedal builder "Freakish Blues" buy's $30 JoYo pedals and repaints (and goops up their innards!) them before reselling on for $170 on the Gear Page. Freestompboxes came up with the scoop back in June with the dismemberment of a Freakish Blues "Alpha Drive" pedal. Read that story here; http://freestompboxes.org/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=13383

Find the full story on the I <3 Fuzz forum; http://ilovefuzz.com/viewtopic.php?f=149&t=17985 along with some hilarious jokes and banter at Freakish Blues expense. Reselling repainted cheapo boxes? Whatever will the boutique boys come up with next?

The original JoYo "Ultimate Drive"

A lick of paint and inside goop and it's the Freakish Blues Alpha Drive. Just like magic!
