Since Gain Boost is one of the most common processes in every pedal, we’ll start by assembling the parts that we’ll need to build our great “beginner” pedal.
In Guitar Gain Boost Part 1, we’ll take a look at the first actual pedal that we are going to create. It’s called the Piledriver, and it is a Gain Boost pedal that I got from modkitsdiy.com (https://www.modkitsdiy.com/pedal/piledriver). This is listed as a “beginner” pedal and that is one of the reasons why I chose it. Gain Boost is also one of the most common processes that take place in every pedal and understanding it will put you well on the road to building great sounding pedals.
