About us

We are a small group of guitarists who happen to also be electrical engineers, an amp technician and programmer located in the Midlands UK, dedicated to quality workmanship and take huge pride in our work and customer service - currently we operate not for huge profit, but to establish our name and reputation.


Hopefully our prices reflect this, they only just cover our materials, import costs, equipment, chemicals & fuel to the post office. Every single surplus penny earned gets ploughed into the purchase of equipment and test pedals/pickups/leads for us to develop new mods on. However our customers are quick to point out that the quality of our work is second to none! Many mods are fine tuned with the help of professional musicians to meet their needs, and ensure they sound great at stage performance volumes.


Why?
Because we want the Holy Grail of tone also!

News

Our research and development guys have been busy beavering away in one dark corner of our workshop for the past couple of months developing a true bypass system that can be dropped into most Ibanez/Dunlop and some Boss pedals (others manufacturers & models still to be determined). Finally the fumes have cleared and the end result is a small circuit approx 35mm x 25mm, that requires very little power to operate, that will actuate true bypass and LED indicator via a miniature relay.

Hi Chris,

Many thanks for the efficient service, I received my pedal on Friday 24th September, a day or two earlier than I was expecting.  Appreciate the upgrade to the quieter VCA chip.

I've now had the opportunity  to try it out for a few days and I'm pleased with the results. First impressions, it's noticeably quieter than before. Noise doesn't begin to become apparent until you turn up the level or sustain substantially (well past 12 o'clock).

In sound terms, there's an increased clarity both for single notes and chords - there's just an extra "sparkle" or presence that's not there with the stock pedal. I've mostly been playing clean but similar comments apply when switching to the lead channel and turning up the gain. It's just a more involving and musical sound and makes you want to keep playing. There's also more sustain available - on the stock pedal, it can sometimes be difficult to detect much of an effect when you turn up the sustain knob.

I'm using this pedal in my effects loop - MXR 10 band EQ - Boss CS3 - Boss BD2 (Keeley mod) - Arion SCH-1 Chorus - Digitech Timebender Delay.   Guitar is Fender Tele Thinline ('72 version) and Peavey ValveKing 112 combo amp.

Don't know how this pedal now compares versus boutique stuff e.g. Keeley etc but I would welcome the chance to audition and do a proper A/B comparison - maybe some day!

The new lower noise level of this pedal now highlights some noise issues (not major ones) with other pedals I have.

I think it's definitely been a worthwhile mod and I would certainly consider sending you any other pedals (if I had any others for which you offer a suitable mod).

Thanks again,

John>

Got it safely this morning and have spent most of the day playing with it. Sounds gorgeous. And you have managed to retain that unique CS3 characteristic where, with the right settings, it kind of ducks the notes down and slowly opens them out. I love that effect. Its really clean now. To make some noise I had to put my metal distortion pedal between the guitar and the amp and really let the notes hang on for ages. When I have some time I will make you a demo video to put on youtube or your site if you like.

Thanks for this. I am really pleased. Better than binning it hey?

Picked up my pedal from PO today. I managed to give it a try this evening and it sounds very diff from previous original stock. One big change is the reduced noise. I am quite surprised with that. I like the up position on toggle switch to thicken up the sound. I will try out more on weekend, obviously with volume cranked up. It seems to blend well with my tube overdrive.

Pedal arrived just before the weekend there and I have to say it’s like a completely new pedal!  I can now get every sound I’ve wanted from a number of pedals all compressed into my wee old DS-1!  My favourite setting is the boost setting (middle toggle setting) as it goes from milky warm overdrive to balls to the wall distortion, but the Ultraeye mode is blistering!  I love the fact that the distortion really hots up between the 9 and 10 settings where 10 is the knob fully turned to the right.  The tone now works as well, and has plenty of scope so I can be quite precise with what I’m doing with it rather than having all treble or all bass!  I’m tempted to get another one in the future so I can have two totally different settings right at my feet!  >

I got the extra chips as well and when I get the tube amp set up I want to explore what they do.  Is it just a matter of taking out the circuit board or am I likely to bust any wires?>

Hi Chris

many thanks for my pedals; I got off work in time to pick 'em up from the Post Office this afternoon and have had a good play!

The Morley stereo vol pedal is excellent, does exactly what i thought it should - I agree with you about the minimum vol pot, near useless, but I love the short travel which means fade-ins aren't fading out by the time you get to full volume. Very pleased.  I owe you a battery.

And the Ibanez chorus has never sounded better! I realise now that you probably had quite a difficult job with it; getting something to sound 'better' , well it's very subjective...what I noticed at once is that it seems to be more responsive, can that be so? How do you do that?

I like it, much more useable and friendlier, and I hope you will now be able to have a look at the sick Morley vol/phase.

Please charge me more for your time and trouble!

thanks again for your great work on the pedals

Subject: DS1 & Rat

Hi Chris

Now that I've had these back for a couple of weeks, I'd like to thank you and Pedalmods once again for your excellent work, and (for what it's worth) here are some conclusions:-

 I sent my standard Boss DS1 and an aging, damaged Proco Rat pedal to Pedalmods for modification and repair; the units were returned promptly and very well packed indeed.  The modifications are, in short - brilliant.

The Boss DS1 is completely transformed from being a harsh and unmusical-sounding  distortion into possibly the very best distortion pedal I have ever heard in my life. There are now 3 settings; the first replaces the stock 'bees-in-a-jamjar' buzzing with a slightly more close-grained and far more musical sound, which sustains beautifully and breaks up far more smoothly than the original...when I first plugged in, I played with it on this setting for a long time, I was so impressed; but flicking the 3-way switch to the 'ultraeye' setting (the 'O' of 'Tone' scripted on the pedal's control surface has been replaced with an immaculately-installed red LED, which flashes according to your picking - very, very neat indeed) was like going into technicolour!  Tremendous colour/tone, drive and definition are all there in spades and it is literally jaw-dropping, a complete mind-blower. However, the fun's not finished yet; when you do eventually get to the mid-position on the 3-way switch, the box practically jumps off the floor and produces one of the most brilliant ripping noises I have ever heard. Excuse me, but - bloody hell!!!  

I would honestly urge anyone with a DS1 to get this mod done, with the 3-way option, as what you will have then is approximately equivalent to (and MUCH better than) both a Boss Turbo Distortion and Turbo Overdrive, and with the mid-position engaged can even act like the hooligan younger brother of a Tube Screamer. I (quite unfairly) A/B'd this with my Xotic AC plus, a lovely smooth dual overdrive-distortion pedal, and the Boss completely blows off the AC's distortion stage. Get this mod!  And if you don't have a DS1, get one cheap and send it to Pedalmods!

The Proco Rat works in a slightly different way to most distortions; the original design includes a treble rolloff ('Filter') and a monstrous increase in the distortion over the last third of the control's travel; the mod hasn't changed these, but I found I now had to turn the gain up somewhat.  As the Rat had its own rather good if harsh sound to start off with, the modified sounds possibly won't knock you quite as flat as with the DS1.  However the conclusions are roughly the same - the sound is slightly more close-grained than the original in the first switch position, again with a smoother break-up on high distortion settings; and switching to the opposite position produces this in full, glorious colour with hugely increased definition and massive crunch.  Then there is the mid-position. Once again, this is almost beyond belief - quite simply astonishing, to the extent that this will be the position I use the most on this pedal.  If you get a choice, get the 3-way switch put on top of the unit, as if it's on the front it sits a bit proud in the original box - I should have thought of this, but I didn't send it to Pedalmods in its box. The repairs were 2 new in/out jacks and they also fitted a 9v Boss-type mains jack which is much better. 

Oh yes, and you get bright blue LEDs with these mods which give off more light on a darkened stage (or beer-sodden pub carpet), and make it a lot easier to see your settings. 

I can highly recommend these modifications to anybody who owns any one of these pedals. Truly superb.

regards

very satisfied customer

Hi Chris,

You recently modified my Boss CE-2.

I also have an original Keeley mod BD2 and I am not sure if it has a fault. I am running the pedal after a compressor in my chain which is placed in front of the amp (Peavey Classic 30).

The issue I have is that when a chord is strummed and allowed to fade three is a pronounced fluffy/fuzzy decay rather than a clear over-driven fade. - I do not care for this sound much!.

Is this normal or could there be a problem with the pedal. Either way is it something you could rectify for me or would you recommend a different overdrive pedal?

Hi,

First off, can I say how pleased I am with the two pedals you've just

modded for me and thank you for the quick turn around  / excellent

communication.

Until today, I _was_ a fan of Boss stomp boxes; but, having just spent

several hours playing through the modded BD-2, it has highlighted just

how mediocre the stock pedals are.  The clarity and tone of this pedal

post surgery is simply jaw dropping.  Consequently, my stifled OD-3 and

hissy DS-1 are now totally redundant and will be winging their way to

you for special treatment very soon!

Thanks also for performing the mod on my CS-3.  I bottled

out of doing this due to my inexperience in soldering which is when I

stumbled across your web site whilst searching online for a local

electronics expert.

I see on your web site that you are also amp technicians.  I've spotted

a mod on eBay which reduces the annoying hum and hiss on a modern Fender

Champ 600 (my main practice amp at home).

The Wah is just so versatile, theres so much you can do with a pedal that before was pretty much a one trick pony! The SD-1 is amazing too, so much warmer and smoother than before, but ive still go about a million different choices far as sounds go.

Thank you so much for the work you did

You will be seeing some more of my pedals shortly!

Adam

Hi Chris,

  The pedal has arrived and is working great, much improved tone. Only trouble is I now need a bigger pedal board!!  Could you let me know if you ever have the Boss CE-2 chorus for sale.   Many thanks   Mike white.

Chris,

tried the pedal this afternoon whilst 'er indoors was shopping........... in a nutshell, superb; absolutely superb,

I'm delighted !. I think the tonal range has put more focus on the blues tone which is

exactly where I want it. The switch positions are exactly as you suggested, bass boost in the 'up' position and

both are totally useable. It's quiet as a mouse unless you are 2 feet away or less and I got great sound with

either amp channel selected. That blue LED is the icing on the cake too.

Great job, Chris. As I said I am delighted, it's worth every penny and I'll pass on my recommendations...........

after I get all my mod's done of course !

Thanks again, Chris.

Hi Chris,

Had first proper practice with the SD1 tonight. Is such a nice improvement and I love the open sound you get from it. I had never used the pedal past 10 o clock before as I just didn't like it and now it is usable with the drive anywhere.

Hi Chris,I received my wah pedal this morning packed extremely safely and delivered quickly. I have tried it out this afternoon and I am thrilled with the result, I honestly cannot believe that it is the same pedal (although I suppose technically speaking, it isn't!) It has such a vocal quality from the fatness of the sound and the increased sweep range, even my Mum said she noticed how it seemed to be talking at me. Thank you so much, it so great to have a pedal at last that I can feel truly confident in achieving the sound I'm looking for. >   Overall I have been really happy with the whole process, you have been really helpful and quick in responding to all my emails, and a turnaround of 4 days seems really impressive to me. If I ever get any dodgy pedals in the future (the chances of that are high, as long as companies continue to make them) I'll know where to send them!>  Again, thank you so much!>  One happy customer,Josh>

Hi Chris.

Finally got home to try my cry baby 535q upgrade.

You guys do not disappoint. Very tidy work, clean pots and smooth sounds.

Sales and services were slick and speedy.

I love my 'new' pedal and if I need other work doing it will be straight to you.

Once again thanks fro a thrilled customer.

Paul.

Hi Chris

Pedal arrived today, thanks.

Ive had a quick test on my practice amp at home, and so far the pedal sounds great.  Can't wait for my next band rehearsal to try it out at serious volume!

Could you tell me a bit about each of the three modes?  I want to make sure I get the most out of the pedal.

Cheers

Simon

Hi Chris>

By the way, I tried the Ibanez phaser again the other day and it was great. You’ve managed to equalise the on/off volumes very successfully and it sound so clear and crisp that you almost want to leave it on all the time! And a faster speed setting gives a very presentable Leslie sound. Also, now that you’ve made it true bypass, it doesn’t affect the sound at all when it’s off. And the blue LED is of course super cool. Many thanks for the work.>

>Hi Chris,

SD-1 arrived today, tried it out with Laney VC15 & 62 reissue strat , Kinman MkII pickups,

Amazing what an improvement there is more body to the sound in both switch settings (but you knew that already) the unmodded sound though good seemed to thin the guitar sound, you have retained the SD-1 character but just made it much much better, great job.

This mod is a must for any SD-1 owner.

Regards

Terry

Tried pedals last light and both were excellent.

 Never thought a DS-1 could sound so good and the Ce-2 sounds a lot better, very lush organic chorus which it was known for, and the faster rate gives a good Leslie speaker simulation. so once again thanks for the excellent work..    ChrisP

Picked up pedals today, so once again thanks for excellent service and great communication.

Going to give pedals a good "blast" tonight....looking forward to it..

I'm sure I'll be contacting you again in the future. Thanks again. Chris P

just tried CS-3 with my strat and laney VC15 practice amp,SUPERB great job, just what I was after, the tone still has life & sparkle in it with pedal on ,where as before it sounded dull  What a difference,To think I was about to blow £129 on a barber tonepress before I found your site!

Thanks again

Hi,

The pedals came this morning. You did an amazing job.

I'd forgot how good the big muff was, much prefer it to the New York one I had. Thanks for the battary too.

The Flanger is cool, so glad this thing has life again. Do you know what the turny pots on the inside do. I tuned the one near the big blue thing so the Flange stayed nice and jett-like at the bottom of the cycle as just before it started comming back up it would go a bit discordant, it sounds nice and smooth now. That knob was easy to figure out as it only turns a little and the change is noticable. I took note of the original setting anyway.

Do you know what the other two do? Was hoping one would be an input censativity.

Thanks,

Jo

hi

just to say i'm very happy with the pedal. finally had a chance to have a good play last night and i thought it sounded great. massive improvement on the original pedal, and having the option of the 2 sounds is a bonus. its good to be able to actually get the sound i was hoping for when i bought the pedal in the first place.

i generally use a telecaster through a marshall jcm900 head and 1936 speaker, but also have an epiphone sg.

cheers again and i won't hesitate to get in touch in future if i need something similar

 Hi,

Just got the pedal today - what a sound!! I play a deluxe strat through a mesa express 5:50, and it just sings.

Thanks a lot mate, it was well worth the £25 (I would've paid more if you'd asked!)

I will definitely recommend you to my tone hound friends!.

Phil.>

Subject: RE: MT-2 & delay

had a play around;- it is a huge improvement and now very versatile, still a pretty ugly raw metal pedal (a good thing), but all sorts of really interesting and usable tones with the distortion on minimum, hours of fun,  what are the 3 switch modes again? the middle one has way more output yes?

the dl-4 is also definitely better, and worth the fiddling. I'll have to get the right power supply now

if you need any reviews or customer comments for your site I would gladly write a 'glowing' one

all in all great, thanks,

Cheers

Steve
