MOD Kits DIY Introduces the Limited Edition Inducer

The Inducer is a Limited Edition tube distortion pedal kit designed around a New-Old- Stock 6189W JAN Philips vacuum tube.

Tempe, AZ (October 17, 2011) -- The Inducer is a Limited Edition tube distortion pedal kit designed around a new-old-stock 6189W JAN (Joint Army/Navy) Philips vacuum tube. This 6189 is a premium grade 12AU7 that was ruggedized for reliable operation in military mobile, shipboard, and aviation communications equipment, making it ideal for use in an effects pedal. This tube is characterized by reduced microphonics, excellent linearity, and long life. When driven hard, as it is in this Limited Edition pedal, it produces beefy distortion.

The Inducer uses the same classic circuit as the MOD Persuader Kit, but the 6189 gives the Inducer rich distorted fuzz. There will only be 30 of these Limited Edition kits and each has a hand-designed box.

It doesn’t have to cost a lot to change your acoustic guitar’s tone and playability.

In my early days, all the guitars I played (which all happened to be pre-1950s) used bone nuts and saddles. I took this for granted, and so did my musician friends. With the exception of the ebony nuts on some turn-of-the-century parlors and the occasional use of ivory, the use of bone was a simple fact of our guitar playing lives, and alternative materials were simply uncommon to us.
