Monte Allums Guotar Pedal Mods

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 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 in the past was 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 us and let him us 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. You can find a list of my authorized installers here. 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!

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.

Recoreded by Monte Allums directly through a modded DF-2 into Cubase with a bit of reverb. The two rhythm guitars were recorded with a Strat loaded with Hot Fender Noiseless Pups. Listen to the clarity and powerfull tone this mod gives the rhythm tracks that were recorded with a Strat. Great Marshall-Type Vibe! Awesome Mod!
