    This pedal sounds fantastic. Build is simple enough but make sure your enclosure is not too tight. Also you will want to make sure there are no shorts before powering as there is a fair bit of voltage step up (90V) testing on one unregulated power supply running at 12V instead of 9V by accident! I’d complete a few easier builds if I was a noob but anyone with decent solsering skills will have no problem. I started getting noise from the voltage regulator being too close to the DC input jack when I housed it. This created a lot of noise and I had to change enclosures in the end. A twin electrical socket 50mm deep sufficed, there was plenty of room for the tube in the back, and ample room for routing cables etc. Make sure you devise a mounting system so the tube is not in contact with the plastic as it gets hot. Having the tube on a breakout board worked really well for me, I don’t like the idea of it sticking out of the top as they are easily damaged.

    Soundwise, its quite a noisy pedal on lower driver settings but aside from that it has so much headroom. The distortion is smooth, clean and transparent, it really demonstrates why triodes are so popular. It does medium to harder drive settings beautifully, it is one of my favourite builds so far, I have bought another board off the back of this as I want to include this circuit in a modular synth overdrive module. I incorporated a bias control on the enclosure, it pays to tweak it as you can get a bit more attack by changing the bias, especially on harder settings. This Tubedriver will be getting some serious abuse in the years to come 🙂
