The Persuader Deluxe Tube Drive Kit

MOD Kits DIY introduces The Persuader Deluxe Tube Drive pedal, featuring four interchangeable vacuum tubes.

The Persuader Deluxe Pedal Kit

This overdrive pedal is designed to mimic the overdriven channel of a tube amp, featuring a Darlington preamp to push cascaded triode vacuum tubes into distortion.

A notable advantage of having a user-serviceable DIY tube pedal is that you can try different tubes to get the tone you want. It is designed to let you easily switch out the different tubes, which makes tone hunting more convenient. This is not something that can be normally found on other expensive tube pedals, and it greatly expands the possible tones you can get from the pedal.

To get you started with your tube tone quest, The Persuader Deluxe kit comes with four dual triode vacuum tubes. You can choose from JJ 5751, 12AX7B China, JJ 12AU7 and NOS US-made 12AT7. By interchanging these tubes, you can get a wide range of authentic overdriven tones.

The tones you can get from this pedal varies widely depending on the tube you use and the parameters you pick. With a little bit of tweaking and tube switching, you can go from over-the-top crunchy distortion with the NOS US-made 12AT7 down to the subtle break up tone of the JJ 5751.

Gain and output level knobs are provided for fine tuning your sound. For even more flexibility, the pedal comes with a boost switch that adds a bit of gain and extra bottom end.

The effect pedal runs on a 9V battery, you can purchase a 9-volt adapter separately for longer playing time. The LED indicator on the face of the pedal lights up when the Persuader Deluxe is engaged and it shuts off when in true bypass mode.

Like other MOD Kits, The Persuader Deluxe is designed to give novice and experienced musicians the opportunity to build or modify their own effects pedals. The kit comes with a pre-drilled enclosure, point-to-point wiring circuitry and all the necessary parts. You will need some basic soldering and hand tools to assemble the pedal, the easy-to-follow instruction will guide you through the assembly process.

The Persuader Deluxe Pedal Kit is currently retailing for $99.95. Visit MOD Kits DIY for more information and to check out their other pedal offerings.
