Boss OD-1 Overdrive Modifications

$ 28.95

Here is your chance to forever de-value your vintage Boss OD-1 and give it the tone it deserves. The OD-1 is basically an SD-1 without a tone control so we have taken all the best modifications for the SD-1 and put them into the OD-1.

The Supreme Mod OD-1 still retains all the warm, overdriven characteristics of it’s unmodified counterpart, but also pushes the pedal into thick, crunchy British style breakup. The modified OD-1 also cleans up great, responds much better to picking dynamics and really sizzles when you dig in.

This modification kit takes things one step further than every other kit out there and replaces virtually every stock capacitor in your signal path with high quality audio grade capacitors. Additionally, the kit includes vintage 1N34A Germanium Diodes, a new op amp and socket and a water-clear bright LED. The result is lower noise and better, more articulate tone.

By now every OD-1 is due for a complete recap and this kit provides new filter capacitors and replaces the stock low value electrolytic caps with new audio grade capacitors.

Also included are instructions to convert the pedal from ACA power to the modern PSA power supply.

Included are detailed instructions, with full color photos, and all the parts you will need to modify your OD-1. If you have basic soldering skills and can follow directions this is an easy project that can be completed in about 1/2 hour.

This is a kit to modify your pedal and there is not a pedal included.
