    I am looking to build a kit. I just built my first amp and loved every minute of it. I now need a distortion/boost pedal to give me some more ummpph! I used to own bot a 250 and a TS9 from analog man and liked them both but sold them. My setup now is a 5E3 and a Classic50 212 with a strat SC and a custom double cutaway with a SD Sreamin Demon and SD Jazz model. I want something that adds a bit of grind but also power.I am thinking somewhere like Brian May meets Duane Allman meets Rithchie Blackmore meets Angus Young. I know this may be an impossible task but where do I go? Also, any input about BYOC or GeneralGuitarGadgets? Thanks again guys!!:messedup

    I really liked the 250+ kit; it really adds a nice grindto your sound. I think that it's more of what you're looking for.

    The 250 is so dang easy it's hard to mess up.

    I built the BYOC 250+ to Distortion + specs (you can also build it to 250 specs or play with the clipping section). I accidentally put put the wrong component in the clipping section and it sounded good. I liked it, except there wasn't much low end in it, so I sold it. I tend to like way more low end than is necessary for most because my band has no bassist. Cool pedal, fun and easy build.

    Any thought on treble boost pedals? I have heard so much of them but always thought that they would make a strat sound harsh and thin.

    If you're looking for Treble boost, you may want to consider the BYOC Triboost.
