Salut Zakk!   :D

The pedal will be fine going into the front of the amp (perhaps better than going through an effects loop).  Don't worry about "clean" or "gain" - if it sounds good (and it probably will) then it is good.  Just be careful with your ears: the Boogie is quite a potent pedal.    :icon_eek:

The Boogie is a pretty straightforward build.  I built mine using Madbean's "Chunk Chunk" board.  So long as you have a DMM, biasing the FETs is easy (check out Madbean's build guide here).

Agreed. It's a killer pedal that's pretty straightforward to build, especially on Madbean's Chunk Chunk board.

Google translate will help somewhat with translation, although from what I can see, there's not too much that isn't too difficult to follow (there are lots of pictures!), and (at a glance) it's covering much the same as the Madbean document.  Between Google and using Madbean's guide, you should find it pretty straightforward.  The bulk of it is basic build instructions (start with the lowest components, work upwards...), biasing those FETs, and wiring it all up.  And I'm sure there are one or two German speakers around here who can help.

You can buy a PCB from Madbean.  I've bought several over the years.  The postage is quite reasonable if you buy a few at a time.

And a DMM is a digital multi-meter - for measuring voltages and resistance (and other things too).

Bon courage!   :)

Hi ZAKK33,

I don't know where you live, but I speak German, Dutch and English and probably I can help you out.
If the costs are the problem, maybe we can find another way.

I live in Germany and do a lot with Uwe Kammerich's UK-Electronic. He is my favorite supplier.

Just PM me if you want to talk about it, ok?
