    Hello Friends !

    Because boutique pedals are very expensive, and Boss and others pedals are made with cheap componentes

    Who has the best clone kits? Store in Europe / U.S.A.

    Just to add: The Boss pedals are known for their lasting quality. But one has to specify between cheap components and cheap quality components and cheap assemblage.

    Kits?

    I started on General Guitar Gadgets and did some BYOC kits too. They're both good. GGG has top-mounted jacks, while BYOC usually has them on the side. They come with everything you need except the tools.

    Boss pedals are very good. Their stompboxes are not considered boutique becasue they are mass produced.
    For kits, I like Build Your Own Clone because the kits are easy to assemble and often have a few options to mod/customize.

    BYOC makes a good kit with excellent instructions. GGG makes a good kit with less hand holding and is a bit cheaper.

    I also built a General Guitar Gadgets Klon and still use it from time to time. Very nice! A bit brighter (at the same settings) than my KTR.

    Do you mean KLONE kits? If so I would recommend the Centura by Ceriatone also sold as a kit.
    If you are referring to just any pedals I would suggest BYOC. Ive built the envelope filter, the large beaver muff, Their version of TS808, analog chorus and the octave fuzz. All great pedals!
