Another fun project to build from MOD Kits DIY. The Contortionist II kit is an all-analog high octane fuzz box. It produces fuzz with layered octave overtones similar to those produced by an electronic bow. The frequency multiplier circuitry creates harmonics that swell and recede depending on the gain setting, pick attack, neck position and pickup. This high gain circuit can put out up to two volts and provides ample amounts of sustain. Added features to the original Contortionist circuit include a tone control and LED.
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 come with 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 pedal operates on a 9V battery; for a longer lasting option, a 9-volt adapter can be purchased separately.
