    Re: Building my first Pedal

    I don't know if I'd do a Tagboard pedal as a first build... Maybe a kit booster, then a kit OD, then a tagboard OD. Just to get the soldering, troubleshooting and repairing skillset built up first.

    Just PM me if you need any walk-through help for wiring it or if you have difficulty finding any specific parts. This will be the cheapest method, and is truly DIY.

    If it is your first build, I would definitely go with an already made PCB, it looks like the mklec kit comes with tag board that you have to cut and jumper traces on, and you still have to find an enclosure so the difference in price is a no-brainer.
    I was planning on it. I actually found that site and bookmarked it already. There's another that I'm looking at too.

    another option might be to buy a clone and customize the enclosure, in the long run think your friend would end up with a known quantity not a mystery kit.

    BYOC has discontinued their kit unfortunately but a kit is definitely the way to go for your first build.
    Lol. I meant real. But in terms of the Klons, yeah I'd consider that vintage.

    In the past have found this a good place to get parts and advice if you have a schematic or wiring diagram - http://mklec.com/project-kits

    in fact they have a klon kit - http://mklec.com/project-kits/guitar...ne-effects-kit

    Building my first Pedal

    A good friend of mine got to try a vintage Klon when he went to New York recently. I know that nothing will get the exact tone, but I'd like to build him a Klone for his birthday in a couple months. Any tips?
