Mod Kits DIY Introduces the Thunderdrive Deluxe LTD Pedal Kit

This LTD version is equipped with a three-position diode selector switch.

Tempe, AZ (April 3, 2019) -- The Thunderdrive Deluxe LTD is an overdrive pedal kit that provides a strong clean signal boost in the early gain settings and smooth distortion at maximum gain settings. Adjusting output and distortion controls provides a wide variety of tones despite its simple construction. It can overdrive the preamp section of your guitar amp or add its own layer of distortion at lower volume.

This LTD version is equipped with a three-position diode selector switch offering more settings and tones. The top position is the classic silicon clipping diodes used in the original Thunderdrive Deluxe. The middle position produces the lifted diode “turbo” sound from the Deluxe model. The bottom position is a new setting limited to the LTD version using germanium diodes for a warm vintage distortion.

The new LTD kit comes with an aesthetically pleasing engraved design and an updated circuit based on advanced improvements suggested by our network of kit builders.

MOD Kits are designed to give novice and experienced musicians the opportunity to build their own amps and effects pedals. All kits come with easy-to-follow instructions and use point-to-point wiring. A pre-drilled enclosure and all necessary parts are included. All you need to provide are hand tools, a soldering iron and solder. The effect pedal operates on a 9V battery; for a longer lasting option, a 9-volt adapter can be purchased separately.

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
