Aion FX Kits & PCBs

This new range of six pedal kits from Aion FX includes some vintage and modern style fuzz pedals, as well as a treble booster. You can either buy the whole kit, or just the PCB which you can populate with your own components. The PCB will set you back only USD 12, while the complete kit is a maximum of USD 94. Thankfully though, Aion FX has updated the vintage-inspired pedals with things like the ability to use an external power supply, and LED status lights, so they will fit in well with your modern day pedal collection.

Time To Build

Below is a brief description of each kit, along with a demo video of what to expect once they are finished. As with any pedal building, you should know the basics of soldering and reading circuit diagrams. Though, to be fair, all of these kits look quite beginner-friendly, and have well-laid out PCBs.
