The other was supposed to take up to 6 hours, after I got all the Capacitors, and resistors figured out the rest of the wiring was straight leads from the jacks to the switches. Rhythm was loud and fat.

The official forum for all things Joe Bonamassa, guitars and blues music. My hunch is I didn’t put ground wires on the 3 pots because piledrivet were mounted to a metal plate. If I was bare foot I could flip the switch no problem to boost the sound but the tone changes to something different, makes a great lead sound though. I added the feet they didn’t come with the kit. These are going to be fun!!!

I might try a pedal with a preamp tube next time. But you got some really neatly laid out wire there. How do they sound? Here’s a gut shot of my JCM project.

Ran into a few snags. I really only notice it on Humbuckers. I’m pleased to say with the help from this pedal most of those days are over. The first one was supposed to take 4 hours, and I did it right in about piledrivef and a half hours.


I think the piledriver is great with anything. I kkits they have mods for that as well but I figure whats the big deal if I’m playing a live gig and no reverb is added.

Anybody play with any of this stuff? I was away on vacation and didn’t reallyt get a chance to see what you had going on there. Verdict is still out on the Thuderdrive Deluxe, but the Piledriver is exactly what I was looking for.

I rewired my SG with RS Guitarworks modern short shaft kit today and the sound difference is amazing! I’m really liking the pedals, but I haven’t tried them together yet because we have a 9 volt batter shortage in our house.

I hope that its loud enough. If I get that done I might record a demo of the sound. Together these pedals are great together.

Tomorrow I’ll try to get some sound clips of the pedals with a strat, a sg, a les paul, and a telecaster. Give us a demo if you can! We cranked up loud, and my jr is modded with a large transformer so I got 18 watts instead of 15, not sure that makes a difference but I was using a lot of it last night.


Or maybe I can get a tone control mod for it to add a little brightness to the circuit. Since the amp was slightly on distorted it did compress nod sound a little but the volume boost worked perfectly.

They had a table, fancy banner in the back and brochures. Come on the Piledrkver sorry Idolbone just had to borrow your line. It’s very rewarding building your own gear.
