The Persuader Deluxe Tube Drive utilizes a Darlington preamp to push cascaded triode vacuum tubes into distortion. Four dual triode vacuum tubes are included with each kit (JJ 5751, 12AX7B, JJ 12AU7 and a NOS U.S.-made 12AT7) which can be swapped to create a wide range of tones: from just a hint of breakup with the JJ 5751, to over-the-top crunchy distortion with the NOS 12AT7. A Boost switch provides added gain and a little extra bottom end, and an LED indicator lights up when the Persuader Deluxe is engaged and not in true bypass mode.
MOD Kits and Assemblies are designed to give novice and experienced musicians the opportunity to build or modify their own amps, effects pedals and guitars. All kits come with easy-to-follow instructions and use point-to-point wiring. All effect pedals and amplifiers feature 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 pedals operate on a 9-volt battery; for a longer lasting option, a 9-volt adapter can be purchased separately.
