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

Rockbox - Boiling Point

This pedal had a load of hype around it when it was released a while back (A few years if I'm correct!) due to the fact that they got a decent review from proguitarshop on youtube - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hus8O7i_rZg, the psychedelic paint job the pedal received...

With a hefty price tag of $350 it didn't take long for the forumites over at freestompboxes.org to become interested and take one to pieces and guess what they found? That's right a tubescreamer 808 clone with a few mods.... hmmmmph.

Well here's the schematic (Thanks mostrummer), a vero layout (Thanks Harald Sabro www.sabrotone.com) and a link to the thread over at freestompboxes.org;
