***Modifications do not include the pedal itself. These prices are for the service to modify your pedal. If you would like to purchase a pedal that is sent to you already modded, please send us a message!

Note: We are not able to do the character mods or synth mods on the newer smt versions.

Character Mods: These mods permanently alter the pedal's voicing for a completely fresh and styled tone.

  1. Blues: Smooth, warmed blues rock like a cranked Blues Jr amp.
  2. British: Marshall-ish, JCM amp distortion.
  3. Darkness: Warmer, more woolly tone for heavy rock.
  4. Vintage: Pre-1994 DS1 distortion voicing.
  5. HiFi: Upgrades stock value components for reduced noise and clearer tone while maintaining the integrity of the original tone.

Fat Mod: This mod adds a toggle switch to fatten and improve the low frequencies.

Synth Mods: These mods add a circuit-bent style toggle switch to produce a unique effect. All of them may be installed, producing many unpredictable combinations.

  1. Synth 1-Gated Synth: Synthesizer-ish distortion with a gated volume.
  2. Synth 2-Gated Fuzz with Auto Swell: Fuzziness with a gated volume and subtle swell.
  3. Synth 3-Synth Fuzz with Octaver: Synthesizer-ish fuzz with an octave added.

MIJ Mods: If your pedal was made in Japan (MIJ,) it likely required a 12v aka ACU power supply to operate at proper efficiency. Some MIJ pedals might still work on 9v, but don't sound as good as they're supposed to.

  1. ACA 2 PSA: Converts the 12v ACA requirement to a standard 9v PSA requirement.
