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!

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 OD-3

"Twin drive mod"

Many owners rightly claim that the OD-3 is one of the best overdrive pedals made by Boss, however several owners have approached us stating that it does have a couple of minor faults - it's slightly muddy, and it's a bit of a one trick pony with limited overdrive on tap. After much analysis we were inclined to agree and set about making some improvements. 

When developing this mod one fundamental consideration was that many OD-3 owners truly like the basic feel of this pedal, and don't want to permanently turn it into something its not.... and that's the beauty of this mod.

Essentially there are three fundamental aspects to this mod, as follows:

  • Remove mud, add clarity to the basic OD-3 overdrive
  • Add one switch to increase the maximum gain
  • Add a second switch to tighten the gain into a more tubescreamer like overdrive structure, whilst adding a little bass.

It makes the pedal very versatile, but the beauty of this OD-3 mod is that the basic flavour of the standard pedal is retained, albeit subtly polished and improved - (when both toggle switches are in the 'off' position - down), but when the toggle switches are activated it really wakes the pedal up.

With this mod we wanted OD-3 fans to still end up with an OD-3, we didn't want to change it into a completely different pedal, the toggle switches let us do this with ease.
