Boss SD-1 Mod Service and Pedals!
21 Nottingham DRFrom Modest Mike's ModsYep, we have someone local who does pedal mods. Modest Mike's Mods in Bella Vista is ready when you are.This listing is for mod service, and we also have a few already modded pedals.But let's look at the mod 1st! * Personal note:If I had only 1 space on my pedal board for an overdrive/distortion pedal, this is the 1 I would choose. Not because it is cheaper than most, but because of its versatility.Once modded, this pedal delivers wonderful overdrive, distortion, and clean boost sounds!We offer 2 SD-1 mods!TS-808 Plus Mod We put in a RC4558P opamp (chip), but also an IC Socket that allows you to easily try different chips for different sounds. Our hand-picked parts for resistor and capacitor changes are metal film. This helps to eliminate any hiss or background noises. We top it off by replacing your LED with an ultra-bright clear/blue LED. It is clear when your pedal is off, a nice noticeable blue when on. This led is great for a dimly lit stage, but did you know...a bright led is wonderful to have when you are playing outdoors in the daylight?This is a TS-808 mod, but the clipping is left as asymmetrical. This type of distortion is more of a meaner, rock sound than the symmetrical clipping on the common tube screamer. Your SD-1 will not sound like another tube screamer clone!After this mod, our customers have said "It sounds fuller, more like a Marshall amp sound." They also noticed the highs are more controlled now. "Even at full tone, it's not screeching anymore!" When you are playing live and things get loud and serious, this pedal will push your guitar with some clarity. Go ahead, push it! That's when it sounds its best. Now your lead solos don't sound like mush in the background. Instead your sound will maintain its body and cut right through the loudest of music.SD-1 Hi-Fi five Star GE ModBurrows Electronics has given us permission to market this wonderful mod. It's the 1 with the 2 switches. They made the video you see at the top of this listing.For those who like to do their own modding, check out the mod kits available from Burrows Electronics!Take Your SD-1 To The Next Level!This is actually a mod of a mod. We take the Keeley five Star Ge Mod and crank it up a couple of notches. We do this my making the mod more Hi-Fi, improving the bypass circuit to eliminate tone bleed through, adding a bass boost switch, and fixing the "blanket over the speaker" problem this pedal has. Here is a list of what this mod offers:1) Double the amount of distortion.2) Two way gain switch that allows you to select between the warmer and more gain heavy Germanium mode and the LED mode which gives a volume boost, more clean headroom, and an overall thicker tone.3) Improved bypass circuit for purer tone when the pedal is off.4) Improved fidelity and clarity5) Increased presence6) Bass boost switchCheck out this youtube video to hear what this mod sounds like: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rAgD4elyI08 I get requests occasionally for our "Boost and Clarity" mod. When this mod is done, some have said "It is like a blanket was removed from my pedal's sound!" It also adds a little low end punch. We have sold several of these mods. So I made an executive decision. . .I have decided to begin including this mod as a part of our regular TS-808 mod and Hi-Fi five Star mod on this pedal!Yep, you get 1 of our regular mods and our "Boost and Clarity" mod in one.
