I had a JCM800 back in the day. This pedal nails it.
Outstanding, it does not disappoint. Rock on.

Excellent pedal. I’ve never owned a classic Marshall, but this exactly what I think of when I hear “cranked full stack”. There’s plenty of gain on tap, with tons of control over the EQ, and it cleans up extremely well. Goes anywhere from biting lead tones to fat rhythms. Even with your volume way down, you’ll have plenty of treble to shine through.
Overall an easy build. Biasing the J201s was a little tricky, but I just did it by ear and it didn’t take too long. I’m sure it’s easier with a DMM.

This one gets 4/5 stars for me. Nothing pedalpcb did, it’s a quality PCB. It just didn’t live up to the hype I was hoping it would. Who knows. It’s only been a day, maybe it will grow on me. Biasing the jfets is super easy with a digital multimeter. I have them set to 4.5vdc but may play around with it further to see if I can dial in the tone a bit more to my taste. Make sure you get real jfets. I bought the presoldered smd ones they offer here and they went in super easy. Also make sure you dial in the tone trimpot on the inside. It effects the sound of the pedal drastically.

Straight forward build. This was my first build and it went together great. The pedal has loads of gain and volume on tap and the internal tone trim pot makes a big difference.
I used the pre-soldered MMBFJ201 JFET from the store here and some 90 degree pin headers to mount them in the pads.
This is a good project to cut one’s teeth.
