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

Nicholas Boscorelli - The Stompbox Cookbook


There are a couple of links to sites where you can download the pdf of Nicholas Boscorelli's "The Stompbox Cookbook". Just a year or so ago this book was selling for hundreds second hand and it's out of print so no one could access all the info inside without shelling out the $$$. Now thanks to a few generous people it's free for everyone to see. There are some interesting projects in there, nothing too revolutionary but it certainly worth a read. The section on envelope detection and control is quite interesting and it's got really in depth descriptions of most aspects of common stompbox circuits - perfect for a beginner or someone more advanced.
