The basic kit for mounting an effect pedal.
Save time and stop wiring the 3PDTs by hand.
You are in the process of building an effect pedal kit and you are currently at the true bypass stage.
3 options are available to you:
The advantage of our kits is that you can save time and be sure of your assembly,
no more headache with tangled cables and overheated pins.
If you have a few more budgets, you can also use the relay-based kit instead of the 3PDT,
the advantage is that it is much more durable over time and it doesn’t click when you stomp it!
For your information, the 3PDT kit is included with our effects kits,
but this is not the case with the relay kit that you will have to take as an option.
With our new FX Teacher kits, we decided to upgrade the footswitch. Indeed, the 3PDT is the part which is the most subjected to constraints,
both during the assembly of the kit because of its heat sensitivity, and during the use of the pedal, at home or in live.
This old V1 true bypass kit was soldered directly to the main pcb with two 4 pins connectors.
These pins are delicate to solder, and are often mounted crooked, which is a problem when placing the kit in the enclosure.
And above all, once assembled, desoldering is a meticulous operation that can damage the pedal!
So we developed on the new V2 kits a removable footswitch system, which can be replaced without having to unsolder anything!
Whether it’s to replace a broken or badly soldered footswitch on a DIY kit, or to move to a relay soft switch without clicking, the footswitch can be interchanged at will.
