Make your own tube pre-amp pedal built around a 12AX7 tube. Go from clean, warm tone to smooth, tube overdrive. When completed, this pedal draws considerable current and battery life will be short. A 9-volt adapter may be purchased separately to power your new pedal.

Vacuum tube pre-amp pedal kit based on 12AX7. The Persuader Tube Preamp Pedal measures 3.54" in height (to top of tube shield), enclosure is 1.35" in height, 3.70" in width and 4.70" in length. Click here to order. We recommend a Tab Digitizer Screen Lens Galaxy 4 Glass T700NZWAXAR Touch SM Samsung S New 8 5Uw1xqz for use with this pedal.

What people are saying about The Persuader:

"Great pedal and cool color! It makes a handy tube tester besides a real tube overdrive, you can get different gains and tones with an assortment of various tubes. Excellent and easy to follow instuctions with layout pictures, and you make it yourself!" "Very fun. Took me 5 hours to assemble, I've got almost no experience on the solder iron. It has got the good fuzz." "I really wanted a tube overdrive and this worked out great! It took me four hours, but it was well worth it, and the best part - is that I BUILT IT MYSELF!"

It is very similar, but the Persuader Deluxe also has an LED and a mini-toggle boost switch located at the top of the pedal.

Hi! Great product, sounds good! I have a question about the Gain Knob, let's say it goes from 0 to 10. The pot does very little variation between 0 and 8. And then, all the gain is to be added between 8 and 10, which is pretty difficult to dial a precise gain tone... Is it possible to have instructions to obtains a more "linear" gain increase and more subtle, starting sooner on the potentiometer? Is this a resistor thing? Also, what are the mods you suggest If I want to try different types of tones, gain stages with this pedal? Different Mosfet? Different caps? Thank You! Bruno
