This page is an all-in-one build resource page designed to support the kits. Past the kit listing, you can find a start-to-finish build video as well as a list of common questions.
This is a full listing of all of our pedal kits. You can download the PDF documentation for your kit directly from here, or click through to the project page for demo videos and circuit history.
We shot a video of a Refractor build from start to finish. It’s not a full tutorial, but intended as a reference so you can see each step of the process. Most of the build process is applicable to the other Aion FX kits. Check it out if you have any questions about how certain parts go together or if you just want to see somebody else do it first before diving in.
Where can I get help?
We don’t offer direct tech support, but there are a few DIY communities such as the DIYStompboxes forum and the Facebook group of the same name who are very accommodating to new builders. When posting a troubleshooting request, always include the following:
- A thorough description of the problem you are experiencing
- A photo of the inside of the pedal
- A list of all the measured voltages of each of the pins (described on the Troubleshooting page of the build documentation).
Can you build the pedal for me?
Unfortunately not, but there are several people in the DIY community who can. Ask around on the Facebook group linked above and you might have some luck.
What if it doesn’t work?
We’ve done our best to make it as easy as possible to build our kits successfully. Ultimately, though, we are a parts company and not a pedal company. We guarantee the quality of our parts and the accuracy of our build instructions. But since most of the other factors are outside our control, we can’t guarantee the final product.
Can I order the kit with an unfinished enclosure?
We don’t carry bare enclosures drilled for each individual kit, though we can substitute an enclosure from the Input/Output Module Kit if you would like. These have the I/O holes on the north side, including the square DC jack cutout, but the face needs to be drilled using the template in the PCB version of the build doc. If you’d like a bare enclosure, please get in touch with us for details before ordering.
