Mod Kits has unveiled the Saturator, its latest DIY kit that offers a simple-but-effective set of overdrive sounds.
As the name suggests, the pedal can output a saturated snarl, but backing off on the Soak knob can turn the Saturator into a completely clean boost, with up to 30dB on tap. The symmetrical soft clipping controlled by the Soak knob, can sweep the pedal though “subtle-to-heavy saturated overdrive sounds and straight into distortion territory”.
The kit comes with a pre-drilled enclosure, and supports both external nine-volt power or an internal battery.
Mod Kits rates the pedal’s build difficulty as “2/5” – so the Saturator might be a great entry point to pedal-building if you’re a soldering novice. Take a look at the internals of the pedals below:
Mod Kits offers a range of DIY effects, from reverbs to drives to fuzzes – all varying in their difficulty to build.
