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.

Boss GE-7 - a Keeley supported mod

The problem?
Some GE7's are better than others, many older units actually add hiss when the sliders are drawn down to cut a frequency! Even the later model isn't much better. A lot of owners end up getting rid, but now you don't need to.

Solution?
We undertake a huge rework of this pedal, all opamps which Texas Instruments now state should not be used anymore are replaced with selected upgrades of the ultimate top quality low noise equivalents (the Burr Brown OPA's and NE5532s), loads of harsh tantalum capacitors and soggy paper film capacitors are replaced with huge stacked metal film capacitors - selected for a perfect fit in the restricted space available, the input frequency range is widened and the overall frequency range is tailored very slightly to make it more guitar friendly. This all means a hell of a lot of work for Pedalmods UK, but our customers like the result, so its always worth it!

Mini review of our GE-7 mod submitted by Steel Guitarist Jon Shacklock, June 2011

Thanks for getting this done so quickly.

The GE-7 mod is great, totally silent and much more useable. A big difference is being able to cut bass frequencies without instantly ruining my tone, in fact all the sliders have a much more transparent, workable travel.

I can see this pedal being indispensable at gigs from now on. The switch works perfectly now [editor: was also in for repair].

Really appreciate your help and keeping me informed along the way.
