Bit of background, I've been looking into DIY Klone kits, and toying around with buying/building one, but I'm trying to get a bit more info on how they differ in terms of parts and how they effect the tone of each Klone.

I want to get some good looks at the guts of any Klons and/or Klones out there, and for those of you who assembled your own Klones, if you could give me a rundown of the parts you used, that would be really helpful!!

Here is the inside of mine: WIMA and TDK/EPCOS Box film Caps, Nichochon/Panasonic Electrolytics, Xicon resistors, and TI ICs. Couldn't be happier, sounds really good!

Edit: Also DO7 diodes <- These are essential :) :) :) ahahaha

I built this 2 years ago using a MadBean Sunking 2 board. Smallbear NOS 1n34A equivalents. I used MadBean's tone mod suggestions. This is probably never coming off my pedalboard.

I was able to directly compare it with my brother in law's real Klon, it's REALLY close.(just not when the knobs are set as they are in the pic ;))


I also built a Klone using the Aion electronics board and Russian D9E germanium diodes. I unfortunately don't have a pic. For some reason it sounds more brittle even though I used the same capacitor and resistor values as my MadBean build.

Mklec.com vero klone.

Yes, way messy on the inside and a super challenging DIY, but worth rvery minute of my time.

Very challenging.

I was very impressed with the quality of work once I opened the case. I couldn't have built my own for that price!
