DISCLAIMER - Absolutely no refunds. All sales are final. We cannot be held responsible if you ruin your pedal. I got ripped off by a buyer of my TR-2 mod. Said he wasn't happy with the mod so I offered to buy the TR-2 from him. I gave him $110 in good faith. When I received the pedal it was non-functioning. He had drilled the hole for the pot in the wrong place piercing the ribbon going to the depth pot and completely pulled 4 traces from the PCB. And he wanted to know why the mod sounded bad. Because of this I will no longer issue refunds of any type on mods. If you do not have the skills required to perform the mod then please let us do the mod for you. Monte Allums





Boss BD-2 Pedal Mod Kit

This has become one of my all-time favorite pedals. It's different than a Tube Screamer in that it is much more transparent and in my opinion more truly represents a driven tube amp. Straight from the factory the Boss Blues Driver tends to have a very harsh and buzz saw type gain. My BD-2 Mod transforms this pedal into a truly great sounding pedal pushing it into Boutique territory. When used at moderate to loud levels with an amp it is reminiscent of a Vintage Plexi Marshall with smooth round yet biting overdrive.

This mod simply must be experienced and felt to be believed, it is that good! The Mods that I sell for this pedal push the Blues Driver into Hi-Fi territory!

BD-H2O Mod Kit What's in the BD-H20 Mod Kit
Boss BD-H20 DIY Pedal Mod Kits - When searching for a name to call this mod I chose H2O because it's the symbol for water. Water can be clear or transparent and it can be light or heavy. This mod transforms the BD-2 into an almost completely transparent pedal letting the true character of your guitar, pickups and amp shine through. Not only is it almost completely transparent, it's also extremely Dynamic. As you turn the Gain knob up on the pedal you can control the amount of gain using the volume control on your guitar. The BD-H2O will react exactly like a tube driven amp. The shriek highs and splaty gain of the stock BD-2 are completely removed. Compared to our regular BD-2 mod this mod has a much flatter EQ.

My regular BD-2 Mod has a slight mid boost and a little less gain than the BD-H2O Mod. Both mods remove the shriek highs and splaty gain of the stock BD-2. The splaty gain of the stock BD-2 is a common gripe I hear about others that offer mods for this pedal. We have removed this issue with this pedal. We also include a Super Bright 3mm White Clear LED. We also modify a resistor to increase the brightness of the LED X3. You can use the LED as a flashlight on stage after the mod, it is that bright, almost blinding. I will boldly state that this is undoubtedly the best mod on the planet for a BD-2. And the really cool part is we won't break the bank with the price of our mods. We offer top quality parts and expert craftsmanship at very reasonable prices.

BD-H2O Mod Plus Kit

Well, say goodbye to the nasty unnatural splaty decay of the BD-2! With my new Dual Stack Adapter and two NE5532 opamps I have finally eliminated this known issue with the BD-2.

In my testing I tried a number of opamp combinations and two NE5532s sounds the best and was the only combination that eliminated the unnatural decay of the BD-2. The two NE5532 opamps now give a more natural sounding overdrive.

This is exactly like my regular BD-2 H2O mod except with my new Dual Stack Chip Adapter Assembly. Words are not adequate to describe what this Adapter does to the tone of a H2O modded BD-2. When I first did the Chip Adapter mod I could not put the guitar down. A Smoking Clean Boost and the smoothest overdrive I have ever heard from any BD-2.

My regular H2O Mod is a great choice for a player wanting to boost an already overdriven amp or it works equally well in the clean channel of an amp. With the Chip Adapter the H2O just got better. Smoother tone and less noise are a result of this awesome mod. This mod will inspire you to play. This mod is for anyone that wants boutique tone but doesn't want to spend boutique prices to achieve it.

BD-2 Blues Stack Plus Mod Kit

Boss BD-2 Blues Stack Plus Mod - This is my newest mod for the BD-2. This mod is different from my H2O mod in that I have built the mod around the Dual Stacked NE5532s. Taking nothing away from the H2O, the H2O is a top selling mod for us. I just felt that because of the very unique tonal qualities of the Dual Stacked NE5532s that it would be great to build a mod around them. The stacked NE5532s is the only mod offered by anyone that finally solves the nasty splaty gain decay issue that plagues a stock BD-2. I have also eliminated the fuzz-type gain the BD-2 gives you when the gain knob is dialed up. And I am the only modder that sells the Dual Stack Adapter this mod uses. The Dual Stack Adapter was a design I came up with and is made exclusively for me. You cannot buy this adapter anywhere except at my website.

The BD-2 Blues Stack Plus Mod is designed with Blues, Gospel, New Country and Classic Rock players in mind. If you're looking for Hendrix, SRV, Rascal Flats, Led Zeppelin or any of the Classic Rock and Blues tones, you need look no further. The Blues Stack Plus delivers those tones to you and it does it with one of the warmest, most musical, natural sounding Overdrives you've ever heard. The gain is warm and natural with excellent pinched harmonics and excellent note clarity. Dynamics are just as good as the H2O mod, as is transparency. You can also use the Blue Stack Plus in front of an already overdriven amp to push it over the edge into sweet saturated bliss or in front of a clean channel amp for warm overdriven tones. This is a very versatile pedal after the mod.

I've tried the Blues Stack Plus with both Tube and Solid State amps with equally great results. In front of my Fender Cyber Deluxe (my live rig) the tones are to die for. Undeniably great tone! I will not be offering any kind of upgrade or cross-grade from my regular and H2O mods. The components I change in the Blues Stack Plus are very different from my other BD-2 mods. If you have one of my other BD-2 mods and want to try the Blues Stack Plus I recommend buying a new or used BD-2 and installing the mod it that pedal. I’ll inevitably get an e-mail from someone wanting to do the mod to an already modded Keeley, Analogman, etc. BD-2. I cannot guarantee the result if you do.

The way I design mods takes several component changes to arrive at and shape the end result. Going outside of that concept will give unpredictable results. So, if you do decide to adapt the mod to an already modded BD-2 you’re on your own and I cannot guarantee you’ll be happy with the result.  Not trying to be evasive, just honest.

WARNINGThis mod will not work with some of the newer Boss BD-2s. They have changed the pcb. Make sure your BD-2 look exactly like this pic (Note: pic is split into the top and bottom parts of the pcb).

CH-1 Super Chorus Hi-Fi Plus Mod Kit with Blinking Rate LED

Boss CH-1 Hi-Fi Plus Mod - Now with a Bi-Color LED that blinks to the rate of the chorus. I've had a ton of requests for this one. It's different than the CE-2 in that you have control over the lows and highs in the chorus effect and you can blend the effect in to taste. Add to that the fact that it also has a stereo out and you've got a very verstile chorus effect. This mod is only good for the CH-1s made before 2002. After 2002 Boss started using surface mount components. This mod will not work with CH-1 made after 2002. Your pcb must look like this.

With this mod I have increased the depth of the chorus and increased the rate of the chorus and add clarity and warmth to the effect. The Dual Chip Adapter will add clarity and presence and clean the circuit up. I also replace a few caps as some of the caps in these older pedals seem to leak and wander off tolerance over time. I think you'll find, after doing the mod, that this is one of the best analog choruses available. The magic of this mod happens in the high frequency content of the effect where I've added sparkle and smoothness plus warmth. This mod enhances that effect and also enhances the spaciousness of the chorus when used in stereo.

Now With Flashing Rate BiColor LED ModI have added a new feature to my CH-1 mod. I have added a BiColor LED that will possess 2 functions. One will blink at the Rate the Chorus effect is set to by the Rate knob and the other will show when the effect is engaged. You can purchase the BiColor LEDs here. Based on the availability of the Bi-Color LEDs I will include either a Blue/Red or Green/Red Bi-Color LED.

What's in the CH-1 Chorus Hi-Fi Plus Mod Kit

With this Kit you will receive my new Dual Stack Chip Adapter, Opamp Chip Sockets, RC4558P and OPA2134PA Opamp Chips, one Boxed Metal Film Capacitor, one metal film resistor, three Tantalum capacitors, two electrolytic capacitors, one ceramic capacitor, Bi-Color LED , Solder and Desoldering Braid along with detailed easy-to-follow High Rez PDF Mod Instructions sent to you as an e-mail attachment.

IMPORTANT - This mod will only work with the Vintage CH-1s. Your CH-1's PCB must look like this.

CE-2 & CE-2B Chorus Mods with Blinking Rate LED

What's in the CE-2 & CE-2B Mod Kit
Boss CE-2 & CE-2B DIY Pedal Mod Kits - This mod also works for the Bass Version CE-2B that has a circuit board that looks like this. This is, by far, the best analog chorus pedal I have ever played. Even though it's no longer in production there are tens of thousands of these pedals being used by pros all over the world. What I have done with this mod is improve several areas in the circuit. First, we have modified the voltage giving the pedal more headroom and improving the quality of the effect. The pedal can now be used with a standard Boss PSA power 9V adapter. We also replace the main opamp with a OPA2134PA Burr Brown opamp. This is a very Hi-Fi Low Noise opamp and will add clarity and fullness to the effect.

We have also upgraded several key components in the circuit with higher quality components. This will add clarity, fullness and a much more focused tone to the circuit. We also modify a resistor increasing the brightness of the LED. We also supply you with a 3mm Bi-Color LED that flashes with the rate of the effect. We modify a capacitor that doubles the rate of the chorus effect to give you a super fast chorus effect while preserving the slow rate. The richness of the actual chorus effect has also been enhanced. If you are looking for an absolutely beautiful, rich, smooth and lush chorus effect this is the mod for you. A great sounding analog chorus just got 10X better!

Now With Flashing Rate BiColor LED ModI have added a new feature to my CE-2 & CE-2B mods. I have added a BiColor LED that will possess 2 functions. One will blink at the Rate the Chorus effect is set to by the Rate knob and the other will show when the effect is engaged. You can purchase the BiColor LEDs here. Based on the availability of the Bi-Color LEDs I will include either a Blue/Red or Green/Red Bi-Color LED.

CS-3 Opto Plus Mod
This Mod Will Not Work on a CS-2
What's in the CS-3 Opto Plus Mod Kit
This is exactly the same kit as my very popular CS3 Opto Mod but I have incorporated my new Dual Stack Chip Adapter Mod into the Opto kit. By replacing one of the CS3's inline chips with the Dual Stack Chip Adapter containing a RC4558P and Burr Brown OPA2134PA we increase the clarity of the CS3, decrease noise and add volume and headroom. This is one sweet sounding compressor with this mod. A truly great sounding mod just got better.

A really great compressor lets the true character of the signal come through preserving all the frequencies of the original signal. This is exactly what my CS-3 Opto Plus Mod does, and it does it very well. I modeled this kit after the character of the old vintage Opto Compressors. These compressors are highly sought after today for their ability to compress a signal in a very smooth yet transparent way. With this mod I have achieved this and more. In fact, I use a CS-3 modded with this kit as a front end compressor for my personal studio. I use it for vocals, acoustic guitar and keyboards. The results have been nothing short of amazing. If you're looking for a great compressor that won't break the bank and will inspire you, this is the kit for you. My best selling Mod just got better!

CS-3 Ultra Plus Mod
This Mod Will Not Work on a CS-2
What's in the CS-3 Ultra Plus Mod Kit
My Boss CS-3 Opto Mod has changed very little since its introduction. The Opto Plus is my best selling Mod I currently sell. It is the first effect in my studio and live rigs and it is always on. So, you ask, why change it? Well, many have asked me to create specific mods for the CS-3 and I already had some ideas of how to improve an already great mod. The result is my New Boss CS-3 Ultra Plus Mod. Here is a list of the specific improvements this Mod offers.

Attack – I’ve been asked if I could smooth out the attack of the effect. With the Ultra Plus Mod I have accomplished this by smoothing out the attack and giving it a more natural feel.

Warmth – With my original Opto Mod it was my intention to preserve all the original signals frequency content while lessening noise. I have maintained all those improvements but I have added a bit of warmth and thickness to the affect. With the Ultra Plus, Warmth and Thickness increase as you dial up the Sustain Pot. This is a very cool feature of the Ultra Plus Mod.

Sparkle – Most inexpensive compressors shave a bit of the high end from the signal leaving the effect sounding a bit dull and lifeless. With the Ultra Plus Mod I wanted to add a bit of high end Sparkle to the effect. The harshness of the stock CS-3 has been eliminated and a very smooth high end Sparkle has been added to the affect.

Harmonic Content – I am a Pinched Harmonic Addict! Take a listen to Roy Buchanan on the 1962 recording of "Potato Peeler". Another guitarist that frequently uses pinched harmonics is Eric Johnson. The effect happens when subtle harmonics are amplified. Pinched Harmonics require that fundamental frequency content be preserved. The timbre of Pinched Harmonics is greatly affected by a guitarist’s ability to maintain fundamental frequency content in their signal path. The Ultra Plus enhances the fundamental frequency content from your instrument and thus making Pinched Harmonics more musically pleasing.

PDF Instructions – I have created the CS-3 Ultra Plus Mod instructions in the popular Adobe PDF format that can be easily printed from your computer. The instructions are crystal clear and full of high-resolution pictures that clearly illustrate how to perform the mod. The PDF instructions are e-mailed to you once your order has shipped. All orders ship within 24 hours of order placement and we Ship to anywhere in the World!

With this Kit you will receive a Dual Stack Chip Adapter with socketed NE5532 Chips, Super Bright Blue 3mm LED, components to complete the mod, Solder and Desoldering Braid along with detailed easy-to-follow High Rez PDF Mod Instructions sent to you as an e-mail attachment.

CS-3 Opto Mod
This Mod Will Not Work on a CS-2
What's in the CS-3 Opto Mod Kit
Boss CS-3 DIY Pedal Mod Kits My regular CS-3 mod, according to some, is what put me on the map as a legitimate DIY pedal mod supplier. My regular CS-3 Mod is my best selling mod to date and rightly so. Many feel it is better than a certain very popular pedal modders boutique compressor that sells for 3X the cost of a modded used CS-3. Having never played that certain boutique compressor I have no point of reference. But, I will say, without a doubt, that a CS-3 modded with this kit is the most inspiring compressor I have ever heard or played. My CS-3 modded with this kit rivals my favorite compressor, the Waves Renaissance Compressor. In my opinion what makes a great compressor is one that doesn't alter the original tone in a negative way. Most compressors shave off a bit of the top end of the signal and muddy up the mids and bass.

A really great compressor lets the true character of the signal come through preserving all the frequencies of the original signal. This is exactly what my CS-3 Opto Mod does, and it does it very well. I modeled this kit after the character of the old vintage Opto Compressors. These compressors are highly sought after today for their ability to compress a signal in a very smooth yet transparent way. With this mod I have achieved this and more.

Boss DD-2, DD-3 & DD-5 Hi-Cut Mod What's in the DD-2, DD-3 & DD-5 Hi-Cut Mod Kit
This is the same mod some will charge you $50.00 to $70.00 for. Get the DIY version here for $23.99. This mod adds an analog feel to the delay affect. The original signal is unaffected. Comes with a 3-way Toggle Switch, two Metal Film Capacitors, heat-shrink tubing and 24 gauge hook-up wire. One side of the switch cuts the highs in the delay and cuts each repeat more and more giving the delay a very warm analog feel. NOTE: On the DD-5 the repeat does not cut the highs in each repeat more and more. Only the initial delay is affected.

The other side cuts the highs in the delay even more for an even warmer delay affect. The middle toggle position gives you the unaffected stock delay affect. So with this mod you get 3 delay options, high-cut, more high-cut and stock unaffected delay affect. Makes an already great delay pedal even better and more versatile. Save yourself $26.00 to $46.00 and do this mod yourself! Plus, modding your own pedal is just plain fun and very self-satisfying.


WARNING!—I have found out that the new DD-3s will not work with this mod. If your DD-3 looks like this this mod will not work with your pedal. I will not be offering a mod for the new version.

Boss DD-6 Hi-Cut Mod What's in the DD-6 Hi-Cut Mod Kit
Well, you asked for it and here it is! This is the one you've all been e-mailing and asking about. The Hi-Cut only affects the delay, the dry signal remains the unchanged. Includes a 3-way switch. Middle position of the switch gives you the stock unaltered delay. One side of the switch cuts the highs for a very warm analog feel while the other side will cut the highs even more for even a more analog vibe. Very cool! The Hi-Cut will affect Output A (Mono) Only.

No need for a kill switch on the DD-6 when using the Reverse Delay because the dry signal can be dialed out by turing the Effects Level all the way up. This is a very smooth sounding delay after the mod. So with this mod you get 3 delay options, high-cut, more high-cut and stock unaffected delay affect. Makes an already great delay pedal even better and more versatile. Save yourself $26.00 to $46.00 and do this mod yourself! Plus, modding your own pedal is just plain fun and very self-satisfying.

The Boss Pre-1995 MIJ DS-1 is actually a pretty decent pedal stock. But there's always room for improvement! I am a cronic tweaker you know! With this mod I will introduce a New Adapter that will allow you to change out the MIJs TA7136 Opamp for any of the many Higher Quality Dual Opamps available. You should hear a RC4558P in the circuit. That's the one I supply with this kit. Unbelievably good in the MIJ Vintage DS-1. But with the TA7136 Adapter you can swap Opamps until you find your sweet spot. Me, I'll stick with the RC4558P.

With the mod I flatten out the scooped mids and add warmth and clarity. I also upgrade some of the older caps. They tend to go bad after time. The 3-way Tri-Gain Switch will add to the versatility after the mod. You have your choice of keeping the 1S2473 clipping diodes or replacing them with a couple of 1N914s. You also get LEDs and a Diode Lift Mode.

With these changes, and a few others, the mod turns this already good sounding pedal into a Great Sounding Pedal!

DS-1 Vintage Mod mp3 — This mp3 was recorded on the LED mode of a Modded Vintage DS-1. Unbelievable on-the-verge-of-blowing Marshall type vibe. Notice how the gain seems to bloom as the notes explode through your speakers. Very cool vibe! If you're looking for that early Marshall tone this is it! Placed it in front of a clean amp setting or an already distorted amp. And with my new TA7136A Adapter you can swap out the opamp with your favorite Dual Opamp. I use a RC4558 but a Burr Brown OPA2134PA sounds great also as does a TL072 and JRC4558. With the Adapter Socket you can even swap back to the TA7136 which also sounds pretty darn good. Your options are endless. This is a very cool mod!

DS-1 Roxx Tri-Gain Plus Mod

This is my newest mod for the DS-1. I'm calling it the "Roxx Tri-Gain Plus" mod because simply "It Rocks"! This is the name that came to mind right after I finished the mod.

This mod is built around a pair of NE5532 opamps. It’s pretty amazing how the NE5532s sound in this mod. All the harsh spiky highs have been removed. The stock DS-1 has a very fake sounding distortion. Not very natural sounding at all. In my opinion this is where most pedals fall short.

I will not be offering a cross-grade or upgrade for the Roxx mod because the Roxx is a complete mod rebuild. It is totally different from my Rectifier mods. This, IMO, is my best DS-1 mod to date. I built it around dual stacked NE5532s. This completely removes the fizz from the DS-1 cicuit and gives the pedal a very natural sounding distortion. In fact I almost named the mod Velvet because this mod has an almost velvet type smoothness to it.

Getting a pedal to sound like an actual tube driven amp on the verge of breakup is the challenge pedal manufacturers face. I have been able to obtain that vibe with this mod. All the fake shrill gain has been replaced with a very smooth dynamic harmonically rich distortion. This is arguably my best DS-1 mod to date.

Now you can have the best of both worlds. The awesome richness and smooth distortion of my regular Rectifier Mod and the FAT, thick, tubish type gain, with tons of glorious sustain, that the LEDs will give you.

This is exactly the same mod as my extremely popular DS-1 Rectifier Tri-Gain Mod. But I swap out the rather plain sounding inline chip for two Burr Brown OPA2134PA opamps. The two OPA2134PA Dual Opamps will open up the tone with increased note clarity and less noise. This mod reminds me of an OCD on Steroids. The gain after this mod has that same type of airy and open gain that the OCD is famous for. This may be my best mod yet! I ain't kidding folks, this is one awesome mod.

IMPORTANT - This mod will only work with the newer DS-1s. The older vintage DS-1s use a different type of inline chip that is not compatible with the chip adapter. Your DS-1's PCB must look exactly like this.

I designed this mod to be an absolutely "In Yo Face" Distortion. The name alone conjures up images of a pedal that takes no prisoners. This is one awesome pedal after the mod. Tons of volume and some of the richest, smoothest, tastiest distortion you have ever heard. Looking for that Satriani type wall of sound with thick tasty leeds. This is the mod for you. Those of you that liked my SD-808 will love this mod also.

Very similar harmonic structure with enhanced pinched harmonics and sustain for days. There's a wide variety of tone in this mod. With the gain turned down you'll get this smooth edgy vibe that's almost like an overdrive. Push the gain up and and this pedal will go into heavenly type distortion with no splatiness or flabby bass. Thick and smooth is the order of the day. Not a raspy tone in this mod. If you're looking for a pedal that sounds equally good at bedroom or concert volume this is the mod for you.

Boss GE-7 & GEB-7 DIY Pedal Mod Kits

What's in the GE-7 & GEB-7 Plus Mod Kit

This is very handy tone shaping tool to have on your pedal board. This is actually a very nice sounding EQ right off the shelf. But it suffers from excessive noise as a result of the cheaper components Boss uses. With this mod we replace the cheaper noisy op-amp chips with low noise higher quality chips.

Lower quality capacitors are also replaced reducing noise even more and also adding a more focused Hi-Fi tone to the circuit. Noise is substantially reduced and the signal is passed through preserving the original tone of your guitar. The bypass circuit is also much improved. You will not find a better mod than this anywhere for the GE-7! You'll be shocked at the improvement this mod will make on this pedal.

TESTIMONIALModified my GE-7 with your "Plus" mod yesterday, and I am blown away by the results. I did before/after comparisons with a DAW and a spectrum analyzer so I could not only hear, but see the difference. Before: hiss, hum, buzz, noise on every slider. After: nearly silent operation - I had to boost the recorded waveform significantly just to hear it. All this plus tight, defined, *musical* equalization. Kudos to you once again. I am proud to have this join my Monte Allums CS-3 Opto Plus, which continues to amaze. Will recommend your mods every chance I get! Below is a screen shot of Jeff's spectrum analyzer results of before anf after the GE-7 Plus Mod (Click on the pic to enlarge). Also click here for a mp3 that Jeff made of before and after he performed the mod. Here's Jeff's description of the mp3:

1. All sliders at 0 (centered), gain at 0.
2. Each slider boosted fully one at a time, from low to high; gain at 0.
3. Each slider cut fully one at a time, from low to high; gain at 0. It is surprising here how much hiss and noise are added to the signal when *cutting* frequencies on the unmodded pedal.
4. Gain slider maxed, each slider additively boosted fully from low to high.
5. Unmodded sound is on the left and the modded sound is on the right.

WARNING!
There are two GE-7s and GEB-7s Boss have made. The New Version GE-7 has 3 Opamps while the Older Vintage GE-7 and GEB-7 have 4 Opamps. You must open your pedal to see which kit you need to order. Use the Pull-Down Menu to select the correct kit for your GE-7 and GEB-7. The Vintage 4-opamp GE-7 PCB will look like this. The New 3-opamp GE-7 PCB will look like this. The mod will not work with the older GEB-7. Make sure your GEB-7 pcb looks exactly like this.

About the New! GE-7 & GEB-7 Plus Mod Kits

This is exactly the same mod as my popular GE-7 & GEB-7 mod but with my new Dual Stacked Chip Adapter Mod with two Burr Brown OPA2134PA opamps with sockets. I am also supplying sockets for the RC4559P opamps so you can swap them out if you like. Also included is a Super Bright White LED. If you thought my regular GE-7 & GEB-7 mod was quiet wait until you hear the GE-7 & GEB-7 with a pair of OPA2134PA opamps in the circuit. This pedal now passes pristine clean signal from the input to the output. This is one awesome tone-shaping tool after this mod! Clarity and focus is unbelievably good. As a clean boost it doesn't get any better than this.

IMPORTANT! - The New GE-7 Plus Mod will only work with the newer GE-7 that has a PCB Board that looks like this. The mod will not work with the older GE-7 PCB that looks like this. I will not be able to adapt the mod to the older GE-7 because the adapter is not compatible with the inline opamp of that pedal. The mod will not work with the older GEB-7. Make sure your pcb looks exactly like this. WARNING — There is an older GEB-7 that looks almost just like the newer version. I just received an e-mail notifying me about this. It looks very similar to the newer version but has a 7-pin inline opamp instead of the 8-pin and so my adapter will not work with it. It also has a 4th DIP Opamp in the upper right corner of the pcb. The pcb looks like this. My new Plus version with the adapter will not work with this version.

This kit is exactly the same as my regular MT-2 Sustainia Mod but with a switch. The switch will offer 3 gains. One side will engage the 1N34A diodes and one side the LEDs. The middle will bypass the diodes altogether which will give you a very overdrive type gain structure with the gain turned down.

This toggle switch makes the Sustainia a very versatile pedal. One that will cover the heavier stuff for the metal heads and the bluesier stuff for rock and blues players. You will not believe the smooth thick gain the LEDs give you. This is a solo players dream mod! A Great Mod just got 3X better!

MT-2 Sustainia Mod What's in the MT-2 Sustainia Mod Kit
This is my second Mod for the MT-2. I've gotten a lot of requests asking if there are any mods that will clean up the pedal when the gain is turned down and also reduce noise. My MT-2 Sustainia Mod has accomplished both of these requests. I have also flattened out the EQ and enhanced sustain. Now with the tone controls at 12 O'clock the EQ is almost totally flat with a mild fattening of the signal. The gain will now go from clean boost to crunchy overdrive to a take-no-prisoners distortion with sustain for days. You will not believe the sustain this mod will give you!

But, for those that prefer more gain with no clean boost I include instructions and two 1N34A Germanium Diodes that will give you that, along with a much smoother gain structure and enhanced sustain. So, depending on your particular tonal needs, this mod will cover both areas and it does both very well. My MT-2 Sustainiac Mod completely transforms a very harsh nasally pedal into one of the sweetest tastiest overdrive/distortion pedals available at any price. This is, without a doubt, the best mod for a MT-2 that's available anywhere at any price!

VooDoo Labs Sparkle Drive Tri-Gain Plus Mod Mod

NEW!
What's in the Sparkle Drive Mod Kit

WARNING! — As far as I know the Sparkle Drive has not changed since its introduction but I am not certain. Please open your pedal up and make sure the pcb looks like this.


I've had a ton of requests for this one. The Sparkle Drive is actually pretty decent stock but has a tendency to be rather fizzy in the gain structure and there's a loss of bass when the gain is blended in with the signal. I have solved both of these issues, incorporated my Dual Stack Adapter and also added a few twists of my own that will transform this pedal into a really great OD. I have also increased the amount of available gain. The Stacked RC4558Ps will give the gain a much more amp-like structure. It will also enhance pick attack and note clarity. This mod will only affect the gain side of the circuit. The clean side remains the same.

This is my personal favorite of all the TS type circuits available. Very versatile. The real magic happens with the Dual Stack RC4558Ps and the Tri-Gain Switch. The Dual Stack RC4558s will lessen noise slightly and increase the headroom slightly. The gain takes on this very smooth and even structure with a much more Tube-Like vibe. With the Ti-Gain Switch you get 3 very useable gain modes. I retain the stock gain mode with two 1N914 Diodes. In the middle mode the diodes are lifted from the clipping cicuit yielding a huge volume boost with a ton of crunch and edge. But in my opinion the real magic happens on the LED side of the switch. In this mode the Sparkle Drive takes on this wonderful bloom that erupts into this gorgeous sounding Tube-Like overdrive. This is a wonderful mod for an already great sounding pedal. With this mod I just made it 2X better!

With this Kit you will receive two Metal Film Capacitors, one Carbon Film Resistor, one Carbon Composite Resistor, Tri-Gain Switch Assembly, Dual Stack Adapter Assembly with two RC4558P Opamps, Super Bright Green LED, Solder and Desoldering Braid along with detailed easy-to-follow High Rez PDF Mod Instructions sent to you as an e-mail attachment.

OD-3 Plus Dual Gain Mod Kit

I’ve wanted to incorporate my new Dual Stack Chip Adapter into a OD-3 Mod for some time. The OD-3 Plus Dual Gain Mod is the result of weeks and weeks of research and experimentation. What I ended up with far exceeded my expectations. The Mod has transformed this pedal into a beast! The lamb has been transformed into a Lion! The words that come to mind when I think of it is “Meaty & Bold! The notes literally explode out of my amp when I play through this mod. Although I wasn’t trying to model the effect after any particular amp this pedal, after the mod, reminds me of a early Marshall JCM800. I’ll never forget the first time I ever heard a JCM800. The notes seemed to explode out of the speakers. This pedal, no kidding, reminds me of THAT Tone!

Now for the bad news. I won’t be offering an upgrade from my Supra Plus to this mod. There were just too many changes I had to make to the circuit to accommodate the two NE5532s. I am also replacing the Supra Plus with this mod. So I will no longer sell the Supra Mod as of today. The Supra was a great mod but it cannot hold a candle to this New Mod!

NEW!
ODB-3 Plus Tri Gain Mod Kit

First of all I designed this mod so it will work with both Bass and Guitar. The stock ODB-3 sounds more like a Fuzz than an overdrive pedal plus it is very harsh and spiky in the high end. I have removed the fuzziness and harshness and thickened the effect and added warmth. No special mods are needed when using bass or guitar. The mods included with the kit will work equally well with both with absolutely no tweaking needed.

There's a ton of very cool tones in this mod! When using a Bass you'll get enhanced note clarity and a super smooth, thick bottom. You'll find that the thickening of this mod will add sustain and girth to your playing. For guitarists you'll get very harmonically rich tones that just sing when your amp is pushed. Once I finished the mod I literally did not want to put my guitar down. The tones I was getting were just inspiring!

SD-1 GT Mod What's in the SD-1 GT Mod Kit
Boss SD-1 GT DIY Pedal Mod Kits - This is my third mod for a Boss SD-1. This mod is built around a 2N3440 Transistor. A 2N3440 Transistor in this circuit, along with a few other tweaks here and there, transforms this pedal into an absolute tone monster! This mod combines the positive qualities of my first two SD-1 Mods to create an unbelievably great overdrive. The SD-808 is one of my personal favorites. Some say it's the best SD-1 mod available. The SD-1 GT is more transparent than either of my other two SD-1 Mods. It has a very slight mid boost which helps you stand out in a mix. But the real magic happens in the upper frequencies. If you've ever played a vintage Script Dyna Comp or Ross compressor you've experienced the magic that happens in the upper range of those pedal and give them the magic that pro players rave about. That same magic is present in my SD-1 GT Mod. Note clarity is the best of any pedal mod I sell to date. My RAT 2 Fat Rat Mod comes very close but the GT has a tad better note clarity. Think early Led Zepplin Tone here.

I've also incorporated two switches into the SD-1 GT Mod. One switch adds presence and gain while the other switch toggles between Asymmetrical (Boss) and Symmetrical (Ibanez) Clipping. There are a ton of tonal options available here. Want clean boost. No problem. Want note articulation and clarity. No problem. Want smooth creamy overdrive. No problem. Want a combination of them all. You got it. Very versatile Mod that offers a wide pallet of tonal colors. To add a little icing on the cake I am including the extremely popular and quiet OPA2134PA Burr Brown op-amp. So, you thought the SD-808 was a great mod? Wait till you hear the GT!

SD-1 Stacked Plus Mod for Guitar & Bass What's in the SD-1 Stacked Plus Mod Kit
I've been wanting to incorporate my Dual Stack Aadapter into an SD-1 mod for some time. This will be my 3rd mod for the SD-1. The SD-1 is such great mod bait. For $40 new and even less on eBay. The pcb is easy to work on and the stock pedals actually sound decent. I built this one around my new Dual Stack Adapter. The Dual Stack Opamps will give the circuit a tab bit more headroom, less noise and a more natural amp-like gain. The Tri-Gain switch will give you 3 very usable gain modes. I have also added much needed volume to the effect. I've always had to almost max the gain and volume knobs to get a good volume boost. Well, not any more. There's a ton of volume available with the effect on now! Inevitably I'll get the e-mail asking me which mod is the best.

Heck, I like them all! But they are all different. For the person that doesn't like dealing with switches my regular SD-1 and SD-808 mods are the ticket. But for the more adventurous and experienced modders the GT and the Stacked Plus will take you much further tone-wise. And you'll be rewarded for your efforts. For those that feel they need more gain I suggest adding my Dual Gain Upgrade Switch. No need for the Symmetrical Gain Upgrade Switch with the Stacked Plus Mod because I have incorporated that into the Tri-Gain Switch. Tone-wise this mod has a bit more girth than any of my other SD-1 mods. This mod will work great in front of a clean amp and is just magical in front of an already overdriven amp. So as a boost this mod really shines.

But the really cool thing is I designed this mod to work with both Guitar and Bass. No special tweaking necessary. Just plug it in and go. I designed the EQ of the mod so that the modded Version lets the full range of frequencies through. Works great on a bass track for added thickening.


With this Kit you will receive a 3mm Super Bright Blue LED and everything needed to mod your pedal into a fire-breathing tone Monster! High Rez PDF Mod Instructions will be sent to you as an e-mail attachment after purchase.

SD-1 Mod
This is probably the one of the best kept secrets on the planet at $40 USD. This pedal is a sleeper and a steal. New, it is half of what a used TS9 sells for on eBay. What's really amazing is how great this pedal sounds with my $20 Mod. So for $60 and little time you get a pedal that blows away the competition. No hype, this Mod is THAT Good! Even I am shocked at how well this mod turned out. Stock the SD-1 delivers warm fat tones. The stock SD-1 from the factory sounds rather bland and not very transparent. The PCB is almost exactly the same as a Tube Screamer.

The stock SD-1 also comes with the famed JRC4558D opamp chip. You can change the character of the pedal buy swapping out different chips which I now sell above. This mod will make you want to throw away your Tube Screamer. Well, maybe not, but this mod transforms this already good sounding pedal into absolutely one of the best Overdrive pedals sold anywhere at any price! With this mod I tried Carbon Composition, Carbon Film, Metal Film, Tantalum, Rectifier Diodes, LEDs, Germanium Diodes, etc. just to see what affect each one would have on the SD-1's tone. The Mods below are a result of that research and experimentation.

SD-808 Mod Plus What's in the SD-808 Mod Plus Kit
With this mod I take the SD-1 and mod it to TS808 specs. The circuit of the SD-1 is very similar to the TS9. This mod includes all the mods in my regular SD-1 mod, plus you get three extra components that will take the SD-1 to TS808 specs. I have also included a RC4558P chip. The stock SD-1 comes with the JRC4558DD op-amp chip. Some feel the RC4558P is a better sounding chip than the JRC4558DD in the SD-1 circuit. I also include a 3mm Super Bright Blue LED and a resistor replacement that will increase the brightness of the LED. What's really amazing is how great this pedal sounds with this Mod.

I also include the symmetrical clipping mod for those that prefer Ibanez TS808 clipping over Boss asymmetrical clipping. This mod is absolutely the best SD-1 mod sold anywhere by anyone at any price! The complexity of the tone after the mod is startling. We also mod the clipping section to symmetrical clipping like Ibanez uses in the TS9. You can also change the character of the pedal buy swapping out different chips which I now sell above. Compared to my regular SD-1 mod this mod will take the SD-1 and add presence and much more complexity of tone. It’s like taking a blanket off the speaker in your amp. The tone is very open, airy and transparent. Very smooth, yet biting gain. Controlled feedback and sustain is incredible with this mod. This is the ultimate SD-1 mod!

Daddy-O TNT Mod What's in the Daddy-O TNT Mod Kit
Stock, this pedal is a fizz factory. The gain knob does almost nothing up to about 3 O'clock and then radically saturates with tons of gain. About the only usable setting is as a clean boost with the gain almost all the way down. I have evened out the gain knob so it is now an even transition from clean to full gain.

I have also completely removed the raspy fizz. Notes and chords now explode off the neck of the guitar. With this mod the Daddy-O becomes a take-no-prisoners Tone Machine that explodes with the most amazing solid wall of overdrive you've ever heard. With this mod the Daddy-O is unlike any distortion or overdrive I've ever heard. It is now truly the King of Punch that explodes into tonal bliss!

Daddy-O TNT Tri-Gain Mod! What's in the TNT Tri-Gain Mod Kit
Chad Matthews of CMATMODS and I came up with this mod. I knew when I tried it I had to offer it as an option on my Daddy-O Mod. This Tri-Gain Mod will add a ton of tonal options to an already great sounding Daddy-O Mod.

With this switch we will toggle between two 1N4002 Diodes and two 3mm Red LEDs. So you get the smooth, creamy saturation of the 1N4002 Diodes and a Volume Boost that the LEDs will give the circuit.

With the switch in the middle position all diodes are bypassed which will give you a huge volume boost and will allow you to get a much cleaner gain. You'll find that the LEDs will add volume, bass, a very smooth gain plus a ton of thick sustain.

TS9DX Tri-Gain Mod
What's in the TS9DX Tri-Gain Kit

Well, I have been listening to your requests and have given them to you in this mod. You wanted more gain, you got it, you wanted more clarity, you got it, a brighter LED, you got it. You wanted me to incorporate Tri-Gain and Presence Switches like I offer in my TS9 TG Mod, well you got them! With these mods I feel this is now the best TS9DX Mod available by anyone at any price. The combinations available with the mode knob make this an extremely versatile overdrive.

The two TS9 modes are perfect for electric guitar with gobs of vibe and smooth overdrive. The Hot and Turbo modes can also be used with electric guitar but in my opinion just rock when used with a bass guitar and will give you mucho bass with thick creamy mids and a velvety thick overdrive. So one pedal, two uses.

TS-9, TS-808 & OD-9 Tri-Gain Mod What's in the TS-9, TS-808 & OD-9 Tri-Gain Mod

NOTE: The Maxon OD-9, TS9, TS808 & TS-808 Pro have the exact same PC Board.

Our TS9 Kit will also work with a TS808 and a Maxon OD-9. Well, I have been listening to your requests and have given them to you in this mod. You wanted more gain, you got it, you wanted more clarity, you got it, a brighter LED, you got it, you wanted us to incorporate our popular Tri-Gain Option and you now have it.

With these mods I feel this is now the best Tube Screamer Mod available by anyone at any price. The combinations available with the two switches make this an extremely versatile overdrive.

We've doubled the gain and added a Tri-Gain Switch that lets you choose between two LEDs, two 1N914 Diodes and a Diode Lift in the middle position. The LEDs will give you a coarser gain that is thick and fat with added bass and volume. The 1N914 side will give you the stock gain of a Tube Screamer and the middle Diode Lift position gives you an incredible volume boost with tons of crunch. The other switch toggles between two Metal Film Capacitors of different values. One of the Capacitors firms up the mids and bass while the other Capacitor adds presence and clarity. Very useful when switching between both single-coil and humbucker equipped guitars. One of our most popular mods just got better!

TS-9, TS-808, OD-9, TS7 & TS5 Tube Screamer DIY Pedal Mod Kits
I will be adapting the above mod to the TS7 and TS5 and maybe a couple of the Maxon Overdrives as well. Please do not e-mail me about the availability of them. When I am happy with the adaptation of the Tri-Gain mod with these pedals I will release them. I have no idea how long this will take so please be patient. Just creating the instructions alone is a very time-consuming task. So, please do not e-mail me about the availability of these mods. Also, please do not ask me to upgrade you to the above mod if you have purchased one of our previous Tube Screamer mods. I will not be offering an upgrade for them. The reason is I don't feel the Tri-Gain switch alone would be a good upgrade for them. There are other components that need to be changed to take advantage of the switches. Monte Allums
Tube Screamer Mods What's in the Tube Screamer Kit
NOTE: The TS9 and TS808 have the exact same PC Board. Our TS9 Kit will also work with a TS808. These Mod Kits are the result of months of research. I took several Mods that others are performing on the net and performed them on a Tube Screamer. The ones I liked I kept. But I went further, I painstakingly tweaked each Mod to perfection.

I tried different Resistors, Capacitors, Diodes (Carbon Composite, Metal Film, Tantalum, Germanium, etc.) and I used the best analyzers in the World (My Ears) to determine which sounded the best. I discovered that there's an awful lot of hype and Mojo floating around about the Tube Screamer. This DIY Kit Goes Way Beyond a TS-808. Although, it does include the famous Texas Instruments RC4558P chip and the famous "Brown Mod". But this Kit doesn't stop there.

MXR Vintage Dyna Comp True Bypass, LED, Boss Style DC Jack & Bright Switch Mod Kit What's in this MXR Mod Kit
This mod works with the early Vintage Dynas and the Newer Vintage Reissue. Make sure your Dyna looks like these pcbs.

With this kit I add a SPDT Bright Switch, 5mm Super bright White LED, Boss Style DC Jack and 3PDT True Bypass Switching. Filtering cap and reverse protection diode have also been included for seamless operation. Why pay someone $80 to perform this mod when you can do it yourself for much less?

The Dyna is notorius for bleeding highs off the circuit. I have added a SPDT switch with three modes. One is the stock tone, one is a little brighter and one removes the cap completely adding even more highs. This is a very cool mod that really opens up the pedal. Try it with a 12-string electric and bask in the tones you'll hear.

WARNING! - There are currently 4 versions of the Dyna Comp. A Vintage Version, and three New Versions Dunlop is currently selling. There's a Revision "D" and Revision" E" and Revision "F". Please click on the following links to see which version you need to order. You'll need to open up your Dyna and view the PCB.
IMPORTANT - I will not be offering a mod for the new Revision "F" Version. NOTE: IF YOUR PEDALS PCB LOOKS LIKE ONE OF THE PICS I OFFER A MOD FOR MY MOD WILL WORK WITH YOUR PEDAL, EVEN IF IT HAS ANOTHER REVISION LETTER WRITTEN ON THE PCB.

VINTAGE_____REVISION "D"______REVISION "E"______REVISION "F"
Each kit will be slightly different. The Vintage and Revision "D" kit are almost exactly the same. The New Revision "E" already comes with the CA3080AE Chip and Metal Film Capacitors so those components are not included with that kit. That is the reason the price is slightly lower.
NOTE: It appears my Dyna Comp Rev. E Mod will work with the MXR Super Comp. Just make sure the pcb looks like the pic I have for Revision E above. But be warned, some of the new Super Comps use smd components. Your Super Comp must look like this for my mod to work.

MXR Dyna Comp DIY Pedal Mod Kits What's in the MXR Mod Kit
The MXR Dyna Comp Compressor is a popular favorite among many guitarists such as Pete Townsend and David Gilmour. Stock, this pedal sounds decent but lacks fullness, bass and clarity. It does a good job at the under $100 price point. For a better Compressor you'll have to spend $200 to $250 on either a vintage Ross or one of the other custom built Compressors you see on sold on eBay. The Dyna Comp can be made to sound equally as good as Compressors costing two to three times its cost by changing a few of its components.

What sets the more expensive Compressors apart from these mass produced pedals are the quality of the components used in them. By swapping out these cheaper quality parts with more expensive higher quality components and changing a few values here and there you can substantially improve the quality of the effect of the Dyna Comp. I've played compressors costing $300 that don't sound any better than a Dyna Comp that has been modded with this Mod Kit. By changing out a few components here and there this pedal will compete with boutique pedals costing much much more. Do yourself a favor and upgrade your Dyna Comp with this Mod Kit. You'll be floored by the quality of the tone this Mod Kit will give your Dyna Comp.

YDR & RAT 2 Fat Rat Tri-Gain Mod In the YDR & RAT 2 Fat Rat Tri-Gain Mod
This mod works with the YDR (You Dirty RAT) (Which is Made in the USA BTW) and some of the RAT 2 (USA Production) ProCo pedals and according to a client I just spoke with my mod also works on the New Turbo RATS, but always open the pedal up and check your pcb against the pics here. Proco is notorious for changing their circuits. The really cool thing about this mod is there is virtually no difference in the PCB Layout of the YDR and the RAT 2 that I offer a mod for. IMPORTANT – Your RAT 2 must have a pcb that looks exactly like this. If your RAT 2 doesn’t look exactly like the one in the pic this mod will not work with your pedal. So please do not e-mail me and ask if it will. I will not be offering any RAT 2 mods except for the one I offer here. But, for those of you wanting to try my RAT 2 mod I suggest you buy a new or used YDR (You Dirty RAT) and perform this mod on it.

The only difference between these two pedals (YDR & RAT 2) is the clipping diodes, which I replace in the mod anyway. So, after the mod, the two pedals will be exactly the same. Let me say right off that I am well aware that the new production RAT 2s are now made in China. The problems with these Chinese production pedals are well documented. The quality of the parts is very poor and I do not recommend you try to mod them. There are instances where the pots have simply fallen apart. The YDR and the RAT 2 I offer a mod for here are both made in the USA and the quality of the parts are very good and will stand up to the modding process very well and they are True Bypass! I absolutely love my modded YDR and RAT 2.

They are, by far, one of the best OD/Distortion pedals (post mod) on the market at any price point. My modded YDR and RAT 2 will do overdrive and distortion and all points in between. It will even do a Clean Boost! I have added bass, flattened the mids and also added focus to the gain. The mod will give you this very warm and FAT sustain. There’s a slight mid boost that helps you cut through a mix, for both recording and live performing. NOTE – As far as I know there is only one YDR pcb layout in existence. But, ProCo is known for changing the circuit in their pedals at the drop of a hat. So I highly recommend taking the battery cover off and looking inside to make sure your YDR or RAT 2 looks exactly like this. If they do not, this mod will not work with your pedal. BTW, this mod is a little different than my first RAT 2 mod.


With this Kit you will receive a LM308N Opamp, Toggle Switch, Heat Shrink Tubing, 22 Ga. Wire, Two 3mm Red LEDs, one 5mm Super Bright White LED, three Metal Film Capacitors, one Carbon Composite Resistor, one Metal Film Resistor, One Tantalum Capacitor, one 220uF Capacitor, three 1N4002 Rectifier Diodes, 5mm Super Bright White LED, Solder and Desoldering Braid along with detailed easy-to-follow High Rez PDF Mod Instructions sent to you as an e-mail attachment.

Opamp Adapter Mod Kits
Opamp Adapter Mod Kits Installed

How often have you wished you could swap out those crappy stock inline chips for a Burr Brown OPA2134PA, JRC4558D, RC4558P or one of the other popular Dual Opamp Chips? Well, now you can with this adapter and an 8 Pin Chip Socket. Simply remove the stock inline chip, pop in the adapter, socket, and your favorite opamp and experience the variety of tone that swapping opamps will give you.

Kit comes with the Adapter and a Chip Socket for swapping out Dual Opamp Chips. This is a very cool mod and I have personally had a blast swapping out chips in a variety of pedals. You will need to make sure that the chip you want to replace has enough clearance above the chip to accommodate the adapter. For pedals such as the BD-2, that have limited room for the adapter, I am selling Socket Extenders which you'll find sold below.

You will use the Socket Extender to raise the adapter and chip so the legs of the adapter may be bent over (see illustration below). This will give you room to install the Adapter Mod in a pedal like the BD-2 that has limited space. In the illustration below notice how the Socket Extender allows the Adapter Legs to be bent. This allows the Chip Adapter to be installed in pedals that have limited room. NOTE: These Socket Adapters may also be used to socket diodes, resistors, caps, etc. This makes swapping out components very convenient.









In the pictures above I have replaced sone of the stock inline chips of pedals with my new Adapters and Socketed Burr Brown OPA2134PA Chips. The results are unbelievably good. The OPA2134PA gives the Sustainia Tri-Gain Mod more clarity and note definition while in other pedals will render lower noise and a more focused tone. I also replaced a LM308N in my OD-308 with stacked LM308Ns.

A Word About Stacking Opamps — Stacking opamps has been around for many years. Dave Barber reintroduced it to the DIY community a while back. There are some advantages. First thing I noticed was slightly more output volume. Not a lot but noticeable nonetheless. And depending on the circuit you'll get different tones from mixing and matching opamps. Sometimes two of the same type works best, sometimes not. I have chosen the combinations I feel sounded the best in the mods I offer. But, the fun is in experimentation so feel free to mix and match. Other things I noticed in my experimentation was slightly less noise and more headroom. The complexity of tone can be much improved with stacking opamps. Fullness and harmonic content seem to be enhanced also.

DIP8 to 8-Pin Single Opamp Socket Extenders

Socket Extenders - Sold in Units of 8

Use these Socket Extenders to install the Chip Adapter in pedals with limited space such as the BD-2. See the illustration above. The Socket Extender allows the legs of the Chip Adapter to be bent to allow it to lay closer to the PCB allowing the Chip Adapter to be installed in pedals with limited room.

NOTE: These Socket Adapters may also be used to socket diodes, resistors, caps, etc. This makes swapping out components very convenient and easy. By adding a socket where the component is on the PCB you can easily swap out different components without resoldering. Just solder a socket in each of the components holes and make experimenting simple and easy.

By Units of Eight I mean you'll get what you see in the picture at the left. That is 8 individual sockets not 8 sets of 8.

Boss TR-2 Plus Mod Kit Now with Flashing LED Rate Mod What's In the TR-2 Plus Mod Kit
There are currently two versions of the TR-2. The new TR-2 has a PCB that looks like this. The older version has a PCB that looks like this. Make sure you open your TR-2 up to see which version you have before you order.

Well, you asked for it and here it is. The stock TR-2 is noisy and has a volume loss when engaged. With this mod I have fixed each issue. I have also incorporated my new Dual Stacked Chip Adapter Mod using a very high quality
Burr Brown OPA2134PA and RC4558P Chips. The effect is like lifting a blanket off the pedals tone. I can boldly say without a doubt this is now one of the best Tremolos available in a stomp box at any price point.

With this mod I have incorporated a pot that not only solves the volume loss issue but also now allows the pedal to be used as a clean boost with the depth knob all the way down. I also modify a resistor which increases the brightness of the LED. A Super Bright White LED is also supplied.



















Now With Flashing Rate BiColor LED ModI have added a new feature to my TR-2 mods. I have added a BiColor LED that will posses 2 functions. One will blink at the Rate the Tremolo effect is set to by the Rate knob and the other will show when the effect is engaged. You can purchase the BiColor LEDs here.

Boss OS-2 Dual-Gain Plus Mod Kit What's in the Boss OS-2 DG Plus Mod Kit
If you're looking for a clean boost this probably is not the pedal for you. But if you're looking for a take no prisoners Distortion look no further. This pedal stock, is like a swarm of angry bees. No body or focus to the gain at all. It's all over the place.

Not any more. It's now a very smooth, thick, FAT and nasty Distortion. Although it'll do overdrive, that's not the strength of this mod. You want overdrive buy a SD-1 or TS9. If you want a radical Distortion, THEN BUY THIS MOD!

The switch adds two gain options. An LED and a 1N914 diode. The LED adds a thick warm FAT Distortion and the 1N914 will give you a very harmonically rich and FAT gain that will do pinched harmonic as good as any mod I've created so far. The real beauty is you can get a used OS-2 on eBay for cheap.. I paid $40 shipped for the OS-2 I used to creat the mod. 3mm Yellow Super Bright LED is included.

WARNING! There is an older vintage version that my mod will not work with. That version does not have enough room between the input jack and the pcb directly above it to fit the dual stack adapter assembly. I have included a pic to show you which version will and which will not work. Please review this info before placing your order. Review the pic here.

DC Power Cable Extension Mod NEW!! Now Shipping!
This DC Power Cable Extension Mod allows you to relocate the DC Power Jack from the side of a Pedal to the top of the pedal. How many times have you wished there was a way to relocate the power jack from the side to the top of a pedal. Personally I use a Boss NS-2 and a Daisy Chain Adapter to power several of my pedals on my Board. The problem is some of my pedals such as my OD-308 and VersaDrive have their DC power jack located on the side while my Boss pedals have theirs on the top. This Mod allows me to relocate the power from the side to the top of any pedal. The Cable Extension is 6 inches in length.

DOD OD-250/YJM308 Gray 250 Tri-Gain Mod Plus

NEW!
What's in the DOD OD-250/YJM308 Gray 250 Tri-Gain Mod
Vintage DOD Gray 250 - The Vintage Gray 250 is a highly sought after pedal. Fetching ridiculous prices ($400+) on eBay. With this mod I take the DOD 250 and the YJM308 to Vintage Gray 250 specs. The thing that makes the Vintage 250 Grays so desirable is its articulate warm tone. The 1458 opamp is where the magic starts. Based on availability I will either include the LM1458 or the MC1458. Both have the same specs and to my ears sound identical. I also include a couple of smaller knobs. I have always disliked the huge knobs. Also included is a 3-way switch. This switch toggles between a pair of 1N914 Diodes, a pair of 4002 Diodes and the middle position which lifts the diodes from the circuit giving a huge volume boost and enhanced crunch.

I know I'll inevitably get an e-mail wanting to know if I have a mod for true bypass for these pedals. In my opinion the pedals don't need TB. There's very little capacitance happening with the effect engaged. If you'd like to add an LED or true bypass there's a ton of info on the net on how to do it. I also include a Boss-Style DC Jack Mod to replace the stock DC adapter. Please don't e-mail me about LED and TB mods. I will not be offering those mods. NO
TE: The OD 250 & YJM308 pcb boards are exactly the same.

Boss NS-2 Mod Hi-Fi Plus Mod

NEW!
What's in the Boss NS-2 Mod Plus

I've used a Boss NS-2 for years. Great for Bass or Guitar. They are a very convenient way to knock down noise. I also use mine to mute my signal when changing guitars and to Daisy Chain power to my other pedals on my board. The NS-2s send and return feature makes it a very handy tool in any rig. The stock NS-2 is a great tool to have but it does suck some of the life from your tone. Itís not as bad as some pedals Iíve played but it does blanket the frequencies a bit.

This is especially noticeable in the higher frequencies. By replacing two of the lower quality opamps with much higher quality opamps, and replacing a few critical components in the circuit with higher quality parts, you'll find the tone of the modded NS-2 to have more clarity and fullness. I also beef up one of the voltage caps. I find this adds a bit of girth and fullness to the mids and bass. With these changes I have substantially improved the tone and effect of the NS-2. You'll also find that the noise threshold knob will now have a more even sweep.






$28.99

WARNING!- Boss has changed the circuit of the new NS-2s in production. They have switched to using smd components. Please note that my mods will NOT work with this new design and I will not be offering a mod for it. The tiny smd components are next to impossible to mod or replace. If you are buying a mod for your NS-2 open your pedal up and make sure it looks like this. If it does my mods will work with your pedal. Also, there are a couple of non-smd versions that Boss has that my mod will also NOT work with. If your NS-2 looks like this my mod will NOT work with your pedal.

Boss MD-2 Mega Distortion Mod Plus

NEW!
What's in the Boss MD-2 Mega Distortion Mod Plus
This pedal is pretty useless stock. The Mega Distortion is somewhat of an odd beast in that it has no clipping section, so there's no way to add a Tri-Gain Switch. All the distortion comes from a two-stage distortion cicuit. Out of the box it's really fizzy and the distortion is all over the place. But it does have a ton of promise. The Gain Boost along with the Distortion, High EQ and Low EQ parametric sweeps actually give the pedal some great versatlity. But first you have to clean up the junk in the circuit and that I have done with this mod.
After the mod you can now actually get some overdriveish type gain from it. Just dial down the Dist and Boost knobs and adjust the EQ and volume to taste. I have adjusted the EQ of the pedal so that at this setting the pedal can almost match the bypass tone. So essentially you could use this as a boost type gain pedal. But that's where any simblance of an overdrive pedal ceases. Dial up the Dist and the Boost Gain and hold on to your hat! Mixing and matching the Boost and Dist Knobs will give you a ton of brutally thick and massive distortion.

With these changes I have taken it to a new level in warmth and thick Distortion. Pinched Harmonics are incredible with this mod. A Shreaders Delight! I like to kick back with some stereo delay and nice reverb and do my best Yngwie Malmsteen impression. Which ain’t a very good one BTW. This is what thick bold analog distortion is suppose to sound like. Used on eBay, a MD-2 can be had for $50 or even less. This makes them excellent mod bait. Enjoy the Mod!


WARNING I have heard that Boss is now manufacturing these with surface mount technology. So just to be sure check that the pcb in your MD-2 looks like this.

Boss DF-2 Tri-Gain Plus Mod

NEW!
What's in the Boss DF-2 Tri-Gain Plus Mod
The Boss DF-2 is a somewhat unique pedal in that it has the ability to do feedback by holding down the pedal switch after engaged. The distortion part of the pedal isn’t terrible but it isn’t great either. Merv Jones, one of our authorized installers, has been installing this mod for a while now and I asked him if he would mind if I offered it as a kit. He graciously gave his okay. I had never actually heard a DF-2 until I got an e-mail from someone that Merv had performed the mod for telling me that the DF-2 Merv had modded for him was his favorite distortion pedal. This peaked my interest. The client was gracious enough to offer sending his modded DF-2 to me. I was pleasantly surprised when I played through the modded DF-2.

It is one of the thickest, smoothest, fattest distortion pedals I have ever played. So I knew I had to offer a kit for it. This is not exactly an easy mod to perform so if you’re new to modding you might want to send your pedal to Merv and let him do the mod for you. Unlike most pedals you have to disassemble the pedal in order to get to the parts that need to be replaced. But your efforts will be well rewarded. The results after the mod are stunning! Merv deserves a lot of credit for what he has accomplished with this mod. It takes a rather okay sounding pedal and transforms it into a boutique level
distortion. No kidding, this is one awesome pedal after the mod!




WARNING I am unsure if there is more than one version of the DF-2. So just to be sure check that the pcb in your FD-2 looks like this.

Boss BF-2 & BF-2B Flanger Plus Mod

NEW!
What's in the Boss BF-2 & BF-2B Flanger Plus Mod
First off, the pcb layout of the BF-2 and the BF-2B are exactly the same so this mod will work will either pedal. The BF-2 is a pretty good sounding flanger stock but it suffers from some nasty artifacts in the effect. The flange is just too metallic and boxy sounding. It also has a bit of hiss that can be quite annoying. But it's still a very desirable effect. It is the same flanger used by The Cure, The Cult, The Police, and even Van Halen and Nirvana. It has a ton of potential for sure. This mod addresses the boxiness, hiss and the weirdness in the EQ and turns it into the effect it should have been to begin with. What you'll get is a very lush, quiet, fat and warm flanger with some very cool effects that just sound awesome!

They will inspire you to play. I have been playing through one in tandem with my OD-308 and a modded CH-1. The tones are stunning! The vibe is reminiscent of the early Van Halen tones. Fat, thick and lush flange. Played through my Blackface Super Reverb and a Ibanez JS1000 you get this wall of sound that just seems to swim around in your head. Really inspiring to hear! With this mod you'll also get a Bi-Color LED that will flash with the rate of the effect so you can glance at your pedal board and see the pedals flange rate. Plus it just looks cool. If you're looking for nice, lush, full sounding flange this mod is your ticket!

NOTE: I include in the instructions how to convert the BF-2 from ACA 12 Volts to PSA 9 Volts. It is an option and you can certainly choose to keep the pedal 12 volts ACA if you like.



WARNING I am unsure if there is more than one version of the BF-2. So just to be sure check that the pcb in your BF-2 looks like this.

Big Muff Pi NYC Tri-Gain Mod

NEW!
What's in the Big Muff Pi NYC Tri-Gain Mod

The stock Big Muff Pi New York City Version has potential but that's about all it has. It just falls apart in a mix or live band setting. There's just no meat with those potatoes. With this mod I have done two things. I first flattened out the EQ, added mids and sweetened the highs and brought the bass and mids back in focus. Second I have evened out the gain and added much needed focus and harmonic saturation. But that loose Hendrix type fuzz vibe has been enhanced and tightened. This is the closest I have ever gotten to those "Foxy Lady" and "Purple Haze" tones. That's the only reason I bought this pedal. I knew it had a great foundation for that tone. In all honesty I've had this pedal for a few years and have attempted to finalize a mod for it during that time.

This was a hard nut to crack! But my persistence did pay off and I've had a blast duplicating those early Hendrix tones with my modded BMP. In my research I found that many of the BMPs use basically the same layout with different values, so if you can read a schematic you can adapt this mod to many of those versions. When time permits I will eventually create mods for a few of them. So please do not phone or e-mail me about them. I will work on them when I get a chance. Right now I am busy expanding my product line with more products and there are only so many hours in a day. So please be patient. The mod also includes a Boss-style power Jack to replace the stock power jack. I also include a very cool 5mm Super Bright Blue LED to replace the red stock LED.

















WARNING For this mod to work with you BMP your pcb must look exactly like this.

MXR M-104 Distortion Plus Tri-Gain Mod

NEW!
What's in the MXR M-104 Distortion Plus Tri-Gain Mod
This mod is for the newer version, not the vintage version of the Distortion Plus. Here's what your pcb should look like.

In my opinion, stock, this pedal is terrible. At low volume it's just okay but as you dial up the gain the effect just falls apart and gets extremely thin and loses bottom. Plus the distortion is fizzy and all over the place. The pedal would be okay for a boost at lower gain but there's hardly any volume with the gain dialed down. So what I did was add bass to the circuit, add volume and remove the spiky and fizzy highs. I added a SPDT switch with 3 modes. With the mod applied this pedal is transformed into a great boost/distortion pedal that is both FAT and Cruchy. Although you can get some very smooth type overdrive from the mod that is not its strength. With the gain dialed up in front of either a clean or already overdriven amp you get harmonically rich tones that will explode off the neck of the guitar.

The MXR Distortion III and the Classic Distortion are exactly the same pedal. So this mod will work with both. Here's what your pcb will look like.

Stock these pedals are really not too bad, but with the mods applied this is one awesome OD. In fact, this has become one of my personal favorites. This is a great pedal after the mod to use to juice up an existing overdriven amp or to place in front of a clean amp. Very nice distortion. The 3-way switch makes this a very versatile pedal. Middle position allows it to be used as a boost.

I have gotten a ton of requests for this particular mod. Actually it is many requests rolled into one mod. Most wanted a tone more closer to the Vintage RAT2 with added bass and the ability to use the OD-308 with a bass. I've added a 2-way switch that toggles between a stock OD-308 and a capacitor that adds bass and flattens the mids a bit. Very effective when used on a bass or one guitars with single-coil pickups.

What's in the Dying Battery Voltage Mod
I created this mod for the Big Muff but it will work with every pedal I now offer a mod for. It is a well know fact that in some circuits as the battery weakens it can have a very positive affect on the pedals tone. On the Big Muff the affect is just plain cool. The gain takes on this very fat blooming gain. Very nice!

And it a very simple mod to do. You will need to drill a hole for the pot but then it's just a matter of connecting a couple of wires and that's it. When time permits I will add a video of the mod.
