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

DEADplate - "five to nine" - Practise and recording amp

If you're looking for a five to nine watt practise and recording amplifier - build this, it sounds great and only uses two valves! It's got a special mosfet based phase splitter design which I've not seen anywhere before - so I'm claiming my design is unique :-)

Build it and leave your comments below.


  1. Are them bass and mid locations switched on the tone stack?

  6. Why does the effects loop bypass the tone stack?

  7. hi ! I came to your site, searching ideas about my single ended amp project, At this point, my 6L6/ 6V6 power stage gave me too much harshness. So, why not make a pause and try your design with 6SN7 PP ? I was curious about the LND150 LTP, I test build your amp, and wow ! this LND PI is fantastic ! Same gain as a 12AX7 one (about 19 - 20 voltage gain) and nice tone too, as the preamp. The whole thing is a great crunch beast, congratulations !
