    Boss pedal Mod kits?

    I just bought 3 near new pedals and a case separately, really cheap(except for the old MIJ CE-2), and was especially disappointed with the harshness of the SD-1 and DS-1 with regard to the tone control. Down low its fine, but turn it up and it is horrible, noisy... Admittedly, i haven't spent a...

    Who's into fighter jets?

    Thought i'd share this. Brisbane Riverfire festival last night and also showing off our new Super Hornets. I arrived just in time for it at an excellent spot. Wish i had a decent camera though. I'm gonna miss our old F1-11's, they were awesome to see, and with all the noise and afterburner...

    New RFT Tubes, bias resistors question...

    Last week arrived a new (warm) quad of RFT el34's from Sanborn!!! Checked for maximum -voltage at pin 5(-45v) and installed them. The lowest reading i got from the 1 ohm resistors is 43mv, plate 462v. Too high. I removed them immediately and put in some near new Svetlanas that biased correctly...

    Hendrix JH-2 FUZZ pedal "MUST DO MOD"!!!

    I bought this pedal in the 90's, played it once and threw it in the cupboard cause it sounded CRAP!!! The noise was unbearable, farting, hissing to the max at high levels, even at low levels, squealing etc. There is a lot of hate about these reissues... So now that i have been building a few...

    Old EKO Wah info anybody?

    I scored an old EKO Strepitoso Wah pedal yesterday and im wondering about its history. Not much at all that i can find, especially the year of manufacture. All the parts look vintage. It wasnt working, so a close look and i found a diode(?) that was connected to broken traces. The other diode...

    SHO build sounding Limp!?

    Hi guys, im working on my very first pedal, to build me a boost for my JMP, but encountered a problem. The bypass works fine but when the effect is on, there is very low sound coming out. Crackle is there at the pot, hardly any sound comes out and gets louder towards the end of the sweep. About...

    Blown Gold back speaker

    Had about 2 minutes of fun yesterday when i had a chance to crank the jmp up using a single Cel 80w ext cab. Sounded great while it lasted. Anyway, the vol cut right back to next to nothing. Pulled the speaker out to inspect, all looks great with the cone, no tears so i guess theres an open...
