Many pedal builders start their business by modding pedals and amps often times out of necessity. Same is true for me. A couple years back, the other guitar player in my band had a Hot Rod Deluxe and the output transformer went out. The cost to have it replaced at the local shop was nearly what the amp was worth so I took it upon my self not only to fix the amp but to really FIX the amp. The result was great and I got the bug so to say and started building pedals, modding pedals, modding more amps, building more pedals and building amps. People started buying my pedals, amps, modded pedals, and modded amps so I kept building and modding.
The mods I do are a result of trying to bring out the potential of some pedals and amps that I think have a pretty good sound to start with. I take out the bad stuff like shrill highs, honky mids, farty bottoms, and noise, hum and hiss. Then and add some good stuff like sparkling highs, smooth mids, focused low end, greater tone retention and lower noise. Sometimes the number of component changes are minimal but the sonic improvement is always great.
In general you should not expect any of the mods to sound like a completely different pedal or amp, just a greatly improved version. Sometimes the component values are the same replace cheap noisy parts that come stock in many production amps and pedals with high quality audio grade components.
I sell do it yourself kits that include all the parts required to complete the mods and detailed instructions with color photos. If you want your pedal or amp modded send it in and I will take care of it for you.
