1. Why do you have basic and premium versions of kits?

Basic versions of a kit are suited for customers who have their own enclosures and prefer to do the art work themselves. Premium version of a kit is suited for customers who don't have their own enclosures or don't want to drill the enclosure.

2. Why two versions of a basic kit?

Some customers found it too much work to make a rectangular hole for the PCB mounted DC jack, and they, also, didn't like the look of the round hole with the PCB mounted DC jack.

3. How difficult it is to put one of your kits together?

Although soldering in and of itself is not difficult, some experience is required to do a proper soldering job. We don't consider our kits to be difficult to put together and place them in the intermediate difficulty level category.

4. Are your pedals True Bypass?

Yes.

5. What DC power supply/adapter should I use for powering Shattered Glass Audio pedals?

All of our pedals are designed to run off of regulated 9V DC.
DO NOT use unregulated power supply. Since unregulated power supplies put out substantially more than 9V, unless they are operating at full load, you are likely to damage the pedal.

6. Where in the signal chain should I put Shattered Glass Audio pedals?

Shattered Glass Audio pedals are of the overdrive/distortion kind. It is customary to put overdrive and distortion pedals at the beginning of the signal chain. Some like to plug our pedals directly into FX return and use them as a preamps.

7. Which speakers work the best with your amps?

This is largely a matter of taste. Our demo videos list the speakers used in recording of the demo. That information should give you an idea of how our amps sound with different speakers.

8. Are your pedals clones or derivatives of the Tube Screamer?

No. None of our pedals have anything to do with the Tube Screamer. The last thing that guitar playing world needs is yet another Tube Screamer derivative.
