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

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.

BMP_NYC.mp3 — Played through a Strat into a modded BMP into a Black Faced Super Reverb. Mic'd with a SM57. Delay added in Cubase. Just a rendition of Purple Haze and Foxy Lady sorta blended together to show the classic tones this mod can achieve. If you're looking for the old classic Rock tones then you'll be extremely happy with this mod!


With this Kit you will receive a 5mm Super Bright Clear 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.


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.
