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

Fred Briggs - Tourbox #1

Here's a couple of images of the pedals that will soon be whizzing their way around North America as part of the first tourbox I've ever done! On the left is the "Psychadelia Fuzz", a sweet overdrive/fuzz which can produce an awesome nasty octave/ringmod effect. On the right is the "Rangemaster MKII", my take on the classic Rangemaster Treble Booster. With the addition of darlington paired germanium and silicon transistors, and "Filter" and "Aggression" controls it has a huge tonal range. Centrally is the "Unknown Fuzz", a more traditional fuzz box that uses piggy-backed silicon transistors to emulate the warmth of germanium transistors without all the draw backs!
