Color Tone Overdrive

This kit includes all of the parts needed to build the GuitarPCB Color Tone Overdrive project. The Colortone overdrive compares well to the ColorSound® Overdriver™. This circuit was used heavily in the 70’s and has a great tone that bridges the gap between boost, overdrive, and fuzz. It was popular due to its ability to bring body, richness and tonal dimension to a tube amp. This version adds a master volume control. This kit includes BC109C high-gain transistors for the best tone.


This kit includes a 125B enclosure and Davies 1510-style knobs.


All of our kits include a jack for a DC power adapter but no battery snap. If you wish to add a battery snap, please add a battery snap kit to your cart in addition to the pedal kit. Please see what is provided in a kit? in our FAQ for more details of what is included and what you will need to provide to complete the project.
