The Acapulco Tone is a dirt-simple distortion Device based on the power section of a cranked vintage Sunn Model T, bringing openness, clarity, and crunch.
The big brother of the Acapulco family features a clean blend and a Baxandall tone stack, making this circuit more versatile for both guitar and bass players. Designed to use onboard potentiometers, keep it tidy without using cables!

Super easy to build! Would almost call it a beginner Pedal. To my ears the four Knob version from PCB guitar mania makes it so much more useful than the original pedal!

Really agree with Stefan Röhl:
Easy to build, useful with the 4 knobs, it has taken the place of the original in my board!
