FAQ

1. Will you be getting other types of DIY guitar pedal kits?

Yes, other DIY guitar pedal effects will be added within the coming months. At the moment, we’re looking into getting delay and chorus pedal kits next.

2. Do You Ship Worldwide?

We currently only ship to Canada and the United States. However, if you live outside of those countries, contact us directly and we can work with you to ship a pedal to your Country.

3. What does a DIY guitar pedal sound like?

DIY guitar pedals are highly customizable depending on the PCB and components you use. Check out our showcase videos on each pedal’s product page which demonstrates how each DIY pedal sounds.

4. How long does it take to put together?

This is dependant on the amount of experience you have with electronics/building DIY guitar pedal kits. If you’re a complete beginner, it’ll take between 4-5 hours while an experienced builder can likely complete the build in 2-3 hours.

5. What do I need to get started?

You’ll need a couple of things in order to be able to put your guitar pedal kit together. This includes:

  • A soldering iron
  • Solder
  • Flat head screwdriver
  • Philips head screwdriver

There are also some other “nice to haves” such as tweezers, a multi-meter, a magnifying glass, a desoldering pump etc. This might sound like a lot but you can pick up some great kits that come with everything you need for a very resonable price. This 16-in-1 soldering kit, for example, is under $30USD on Amazon and comes with all of the essentials.

6. When will I get my DIY guitar pedal (how long will it take)?

This depends on where you are located. However, typically your DIY guitar pedal kit will arrive in 1-2 weeks.

7. Do the DIY pedal kits come with instructions?

Yes, our DIY guitar pedal kits come with detailed instructions (unless otherwise stated) which will be sent to you via email upon purchase.

8. What makes your pedals different from other guitar pedals?

We pride ourselves on guiding beginner pedal builders through the process. All DIY pedal purchasers receive a detailed guide on how to put together their specific pedal. Furthermore, you can reach out to me anytime at cody@guitarpedalkits.com if you have any questions about the pedal build process and I’ll help you out.

Our guitar pedals also ship out within 1-2 business days and typically take about 1 week to arrive (although sometimes it can be a bit longer). Pedal kits from certain companies overseas can take anywhere between 4-8 weeks to arrive.

If you’re new to guitar pedal building, you’ll need a bit of guidance and shouldn’t go into it blindly.

9. What currency are prices in?

All prices are in USD.

10. How are taxes and duties calculated?

All Canadian taxes are automatically calculated before checkout. As for internal purchasers, no taxes or duties are calculated by us upon purchase. You may incur taxes and/or duties as defined by your Country upon receipt.
