That should make for an easy build with no risk of anything going wrong - provided you follow the instructions to a tee, of course.
Once assembled, the pedal features two gain knobs, one of which adjusts the input volume, the other the gain of the Nutube, offering amp-style flexibility.
There’s also a switch to choose between two overdrive types (low/high) and true bypass switching.
Most intriguingly, Korg notes that the circuitboard features a mod-friendly layout, allowing you to create your own design.
For anyone who has wanted to build their own pedals but isn’t too handy with a soldering iron, this could be a revelation.
There’s no price or availability just yet - for now, Korg (opens in new tab) has more info.
