Black Eye – DIY PCB


This is a PCB set for building your own Black Eye preamp. This is not a beginner project, so if you’ve never built a pedal before, then this isn’t for you.

I’ve tried to make this as affordable and as easy to assemble as possible, but this is a high-voltage circuit and requires special care in assembly, testing, and use. Sushi Box FX is not responsible for any damage or injury caused by improper handling, assembly, or use of this circuit.

Black Eye is based on the rare Soldano Supercharger GTO, which is my personal favorite pedal in the world. It can deliver everything from light tube crunch to full on face melting distortion. The circuit was designed for use on guitar, but there’s also a very simple mod that can be done to turn it into an excellent bass distortion.

Each PCB also includes a “SUSHI SWITCH L” 3PDT footswitch PCB and “12AX7-EZ90” and “12AX7-EZ90R” PCBs for mounting the tube socket. A pre-drilled enclosure is available for an additional cost.

You can find the build document with the BOM, schematics, and enclosure drill guide here.
