A kit version of our 1-knob charity fuzz!

For every kit you buy, I'm able to donate another kit to the soldering/electronics classes I teach every Summer at the YEAH! Rock Camps.

Not sure if you'd be able to build it?  Check out the build video below and see what you think. I also provide email support, and if you really botch it, you can send it back and I'll repair it for $30 labor + the cost of shipping. Did somebody say foolproof?
