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







MT-2 Sustainia Tri-Gain Mod

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!

MT-2 Sustainia Tri-Gain Plus Sound Samples - This mp3 was graciously recorded and sent to me by Sasha Brusin. Sasha recorded it using an MT-2 modded with my new Sustainia Tri-Gain Plus Mod with a Chip Adapter and a OPA2134PA Burr Brown Chip. The clip was recorded directly into Guitar Rig, set for a CLEAN Plexi emulation. Delay was added for ambience, nothing else. Man, can this cat play! Thank You Sasha!

MT-2 Sustainia Tri-Gain Sound Samples - This mp3 was graciously recorded and sent to me by Jo Ellis. Joe recorded it using an MT-2 modded with my Sustainia Tri-Gain Mod. Here's how Joe recorded it..... Both were done in (LED clipping mode) in front of my NMV Marshall JMP Super Bass half-stack. The guitar used is a custom built Les Paul loaded with Seymour Duncan Seth Lover humbuckers. Because the amp stays clean even with the volume pretty high up (volume for the recording was between 5-6), I used the pedal for some boost and the pedal's distortion at about 10:00. Stop by Joe's website at
http://www.joellis.co.za or his MySpace page at www.myspace.com/joellismusic. Thanx Joe for the great tones and for sharing you music with us! - Monte Allums!

MT-2 Sustainia Mod


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!

MT2 Sustainia.mp3 — MT-2 Sustainia Sound Samples - Played entirely through a Boss MT-2 modded with our Sustainiac Mod Kit. Played on A Strat through a stock Fender Hot Rod Deluxe amp mic'd with a SM57. The Uni-Vibe type Chorus effect is a Yamaha MagicStomp II. I also used our new CS-3 Opto Compressor on this mp3. This is one FAT and Transparent Compressor after the mod. Absolutely smokes any compressor at any price.

Boss MT-2 Cap Upgrade Kit

Electrolytic caps in tube amps, over a period of time, start to leak, loose their tolerance and go bad. It’s just the nature of Electrolytic caps. Sometimes the leaking is actually visible. But Electrolytic caps can look okay and still be faulty. By replacing Electrolytic caps in older pedals you can actually improve the overall effect of that pedal. Honestly I was skeptical until I received an email from a client that was having issues after he modded his Boss BF-2 with one of my kits.  He said the flange effect was barely noticeable.  A couple of weeks later I received another email from the same client.  The client said he had solved the issue by replacing all the Electrolytic caps in his BF-2.  This peaked my interest so I started experimenting.

I was astonished how some of my older pedals benefited from the cap upgrade!  Noise seemed to be reduced and clarity and presence of the effect were enhanced.  I am now offering these Cap Upgrade Kits for many of the pedals I offer kits for.  In some cases some of these caps are already upgraded in the kits that I offer.  But I am offering kits that replace all the Electrolytic caps for those that have not purchased my kits.  They will benefit from upgrading the Electrolytic caps that I do not replace in my kits.  You’ll find that some of these same caps are already replaced in the kits I offer.  It’s a win win all around for those that want the maximum benefit when upgrading their pedals.  But I didn’t stop there, when possible I have upgraded these Electrolytics with Metal Film and Tantalum.  Not only do these caps have tighter tolerances but they will also last the life of the pedal.
