    Ugh. An adjustable spanner. The savage.

    I'm not sure it's even a step up from using a Leatherman. Or your teeth.

    The JHS NOTAKLON has a similar tool included.
    This one looks simpler and quicker to build if you don’t use the gloop on the JHS.
    But it’s orange and the control knobs are far too small IMO.
    Also not sure about the foam under the Valve melting with heavy use ?
    Also wondering how this sounds compared to a Behringer vintage tube monster VT999 & a VT911 vintage tube overdrive which both have valves for around £60 each new.

    Joe Perkins did a vid on it. Tbh I'm not a Klon guy so it's not for me, but sounds good for what it is. Plus the circuit isn't really a Klon anymore given the tube does the clipping rather than diodes, it has different tone control, lacks clean boost, etc.

    So...it's a pedal they couldn't be bothered finishing the build before shipping it?

    If it was a proper kit (ie. a bag of components) I would understand it more. But just screwing it into the enclosure is pretty gimmicky in my opinion. 

    I wonder if the valve operates at proper high voltage?

    I suppose some people don't want to get into soldering/painting/drilling but like the idea of building pedals. I think they could come up with something a bit more challenging though.
    Maybe everything socketed so you can fit all the components/wires? Maybe even throw in a few different values to experiment with.

    I watched Jim Hagerman’s very geeky very interesting video on it earlier.

    I would love to try one but the very small adjustment knobs put off .

    Thanks for that. Reading the comments under the videos, he is asked what voltage the valve I running at. His answer was 15V. My understanding is that anything under the normal 200+V DC means the valve isn't really doing much. I wonder if this is different as he's just boosting into the valve and using it to clip? Not sure...
