Head-Designed to work like Fuzz Face pedals that many players use as
a LEAD BOOST. A Fuzz Face can be muddy, lacking note definition, too
bassy, and lacking sustain. An overdrive can be not enough or too
smooth. In contrast our design is transparent, has a better frequency
response, and gives you that cutting edge for lead breaks.
Very Transparent and Dynamic. Taking the best qualities of the germainum designs and the overdrives. Roll back the volume on your guitar for clean sounds, a variety of Tones, Textures, and Natural Fuzz/Overdrive! Internal drive control (FUZZ), perfect for fine tuning light overdrive tones, to raging Fuzz. *** NEW USERS!!! This control works "backwards" turn it down to lower the resistance and INCREASE DISTORTION, TURN it UP so it WILL CLEAN UP. $200.00
MT-2 Twilight Zone Mod-There is nothing apocryphal about wanting to
be an all-out-rocker, harmonics swinging from your strings like Tarzan!
Need something way more than distortion? Bass as hard as nails, very
flexible EQ, and dark, heavy distortion with this pedal! Dial in Mids
and bass repsonse to suit your style of Metal, thrash, grunge or PUNK!
There's no need to perorate, pontificate, or bombast you with details, this pedal is a Bomb Blast of metal tone...enough to lay waste to the first 13 rows of any concert! $175.00
|Keeley Java Boost- The Ultimate Rangemaster clone. What makes this one raise ears and eyebrows is that it has the REAL DEAL, no joke Mullard OC44. Yup, Made in Holland. We've only got a small number of the OC44 and CV7003 transistors. Please order soon as this will be a limited edition pedal. Looking for the Ultimate in Boosters? The Perfect Boost for your main overdrive pedal? From Surf to FUZZ...the best cutting and biting tone from a pedal! Check out www.javaboost.com for web site dedicated to this tone master. $250.00|
Boss Blues Driver Mod The
BD-2 is "the" Overdrive Pedal with Full Range sound.
For tone-purists, this is it! It's not really a full blown distortion pedal but rather a tone tool that adds to your guitar tone supplying really nice lows, crystal clear high frequency, great picking response and detail. For those wanting to set their amp on fire but not change the tone of their system, this is the pedal. The BD-2 is not the same as a TS9 pedal. It has a more FULL-RANGE sound and is much more TRANSPARENT. When cranked it offers a grittier/more-edgy tone. ***After our mods it’s a remarkable tube-amp enhancer/simulator!*** The BD-2 is very DYNAMIC and works wonders with the volume control on your guitar. You can control all the drive you want by setting the BD-2 Gain high and using your volume control to instantly dial in the rest!
This is not a "fuzz" pedal, (although a stock one might appear to be at times!) but has the best characteristics of a fuzz pedal. Smoother and more realistic sounding on top of all that! $169.00
is for the guy that wants THREE times Saturation with all the TONE! How
is that possible?! I still use the TI RC4558P in this unit. It delivers
the best performance overall. I use a very high quality socket with gold
inserts. The connection between IC and socket can hardly be better. The
drive circuit is further pushed by lowering the resistance another notch
(the 4.7k is dropped to 1.5k and the 0.047uF cap is raised to 0.22uF).
TS-9 Mod Plus I have the TI RC4558P integrated circuit for your Ibanez Ts-9. This is what came in some early TS808 pedals. This will give your pedal TRUE TS808 sound. Many collectors agree that the TS808 with the TI4558P chip are some of the finest sounding pedals in the production. See photo of a TS808 circuit below. This is the same type pedal SRV used.
The solidbodyguitar Keeley TS-9's have both and a high cut. $189.00
5-Star w/Diode switch-NEW
as of January, 2005. Keeley Electronics has made the BOSS SD-1 effect
pedal better! Now with a unique twist, the Diode Switch as a standard
feature instead of an option. This allows players to get a really heavy
sound for pushing a Marshall amp, etc., or using it as a really fat
sounding tube amp simulator! Perfect for both single coil and humbucker
guitars! NOTE, this is not just a switch to make it like a TS9 as
some folks do, this makes it MUCH fatter, cleaner and more defined, AS
WELL AS another mode to increase the gain beyond what a stock SD-1
This pedal is a key element to many heavy rocker's tone. It's like the TS9 with more transparency and more edge. If you are looking for something in the Tube screamer vein but with a little more hair on it, not as much midrange push, this is it! Plus, this mod has got a Germanium diode in the clipping section as a standard part of the mod! The Super Overdrive, GE***** 5 STAR MOD! You saw it here first! Complete with metal film capacitor and resistor upgrade. Increased Bass, Drive and Fidelity. $135.00
|The new TS808 w/Hardwire Bypass offers a vintage look and sound. Many people are wondering if it needs mods since it's the Holy Grail TS808 with JRC chip installed. Sure it does! If you look at the board, it's the exact same as the TS9 and has the same "faults" if you will. Limited bass reponse that cuts so much that it appears as a huge midrange hump in the sound. Limited Gain range...doesn't get clean enough or on the other side, doesn't get enough distortion. Also, the lack of transparency or muddiness becomes a problem for many users. All these things are fixed with our mods. Our approach is to give you the most out of this classic pedal. The bass repsonse is improved to the point of perfection. It is nice and tight and not muddy at all. We upgrade that cap from a 0.047 to a 0.1uF and at the same time we increase the gain possible when the drive control is turned up. That resistor is dropped from a 4.7k to a 2.4k. We also make the pedla so it cleans up more We take the 51k and lower it to 20k. This is our More/Less mod. You get both more drive and less drive as well as all the sweet stock spots in the middle of the control. We also upgrade the 1uF electrolytic caps to high tolerance, great sounding, more consistant 1uF metal film caps. This type of thing is done in all HI-FI stereos and audio gear. $250.00|
Keeley modded BOSS DS-1 Guitar Effect offers the Finest in
Marshall-Amp Tone-In-A-Box!!! Perfect for tones like ACDC, VAN HALEN,
VAI. Mark Farner of Grand Funk is using this one of ours, Steve Vai is,
Neil Zaza is, the list goes on and on!
JUST TALKED WITH
STEVE VAI at the NAMM Show this weekend (01/2005)! He told me that he
still loved the couple DS-Ultra's he has!
|The basic Rat mod of ours requires drilling the case. We add a switch to make the unit more of a tone buffet! This is a must-have for people that need their Rat to be much, much more of an overdrive, tube amp pedal! New (May, 2003)Rat pedals ship with a chip that sounds horrible and has a bad sounding distortion to it. Not our pedals! We found a stash of the correct ICs. These are fast becoming rare and we have the heavy duty LM308 Metal Can version! Your Rat will sound incredible! [We only change the chip if yours doesn't have the LM308, if your rat has the 308, then there is no need to change] We also do a cap upgrade to improve the bass response overall. This is what happens when a Rat mutates with a Tube Screamer and a Clean Boost! $55 to mod a pedal you send in. $150 for a new pedal with the great sounding metal can LM308 installed! RatII pedals get a blue LED. All Rat pedals get an overall tone upgrade as well. Caps are doubled in most cases to give you a little more bottom end meat to the sound. For the guy into pro DISTORTION, this is it. Yes, regular Rat, PHAT Rat, and the super clean, mucho volume Mighty Mouse! $150.00|

Lehle Amp Switchers
|The Lehle D.Loop is a fully programmable Effect-Loop/Switcher with two independent, real True Bypass loops routed via gold-plated relays. Apart from that, it features a facility to switch via an in-built High End Buffer Amp. Loops and Buffer Amp are fully stereo. If required, the Lehle D.Loop is also remote-controllable via MIDI. $389.00|
|The Lehle Dual enables you to switch via gold-plated relays between two amps or run your signal to both of them. A is electrically isolated from B by means of a high end line splitter, so humming loops are impossible, even if A and B are switched on simultaneously. During this dual mode you can reduce gain with trim-pots for output A or B separately. The result will be a third, previously unheard sound. $369.00|
|The Lehle 1@3 is designed to allow switching as a real True Bypass Switcher via gold-plated relays. You can switch between either three amps (A, B or C) or two amps and one loop. The input signal can only be routed to one output. When using the loop, the effects are connected to C and C->B. So you can switch smoothly between the direct (B) and the effect signal (C). $319.00|
|The Lehle 3@1 enables you to switch between a range of instruments in stereo via gold-plated relays. The signal is routed with no semiconductors and no corruption via inputs A, B or C to the outputs. $319.00|
Nova is T-Rex's answer for players seeking a simple to use, 9v
powered compressor unit with clarity and dynamics (even at maximum
compression levels) that will not color their sound. The
setting of the comp control is used to dial in the desired amount of
compression. The attack control is dual function and adjusts both the
attack and threshold (how hot the signal should be before engaging and
how long before releasing). The
volume is unity gain in the 12 o'clock position and provides up to 3 dB
boost in the maximum position. The Comp Nova - use it to smooth out and
thicken your guitar tone, while adding that much sought after
Replica utilizes truly amazing circuitry to create THE MOST
AMAZING DELAY!! Unlike other digital units that use a DSP chip to sample
at 44.1 kHz, the Replica uses 2 Burr Brown 24 bit converters (1 Analog
to Digital; 1 Digital to Analog) to sample at an unprecedented rate of
200 kHz! In order to maintain full dynamics, the signal is routed from
the input ADC directly into RAM, where it is manipulated (according to
the unit's settings) and then routed directly to the Output DAC. The
circuitry is entirely analog, with the exception of the 24 bit
converters and RAM. An input pad switch can be engaged (attenuation of
-10 dB) for studio use. In addition, the Replica can be made to sound
more "analog" by pressing the "Brown" button which
engages a Hi-cut filter that alters the tone of the repeats. The result
is a warmer, smoother delay reminiscent of a 60´s era tape echo.
Replica is true (hot-wire) bypass and is capable of delay settings up to
2000ms. The Replica also features a tap tempo function (which can be
controlled externally, via the built in midi socket), and a subdivision
function (which when engaged, creates triplets, based on the
"tapped" quarter note tempo). The Replica provides a direct
out 1/4 inch jack and comes with an external 12 volt power supply.

Tremster has been designed to sound like a vintage tube amp
tremelo. Unlike many other tremelos that utilize opto-electronic
designs, the Tremster uses a light-dependent resistor (LDR) to achieve
it's deep, buttery, seductive tone. A
flashing LED displays the selected speed setting, and allows a wide
range of control from very slow to head-spinning fury. When the mode
button is in the "normal" position, the Tremster has an
aggresive/more sine wave type effect on the signal, coming down 100% in
volume. When the mode button is depressed, the Tremster has a less
aggresive/more square wave type effect on the signal, coming down only
80% in volume. The
actual volume control itself is unity gain in the 12 o'clock position
and provides up to 3 dB boost (and more "bite") in the maximum

The T-Rex Dr.Swamp is a double distortion pedal. It has that rich vintage sound, T-Rex is known for. Besides the warm crunchy sound, this pedal gives a lot of steady bottom.
You can flip back and forth between the two gain settings A and B - by clicking switch A or B. The lid (A or B) is indicating the active gain. The pedal is turned off, by clicking the switch (A or B) that is lid. T-Rex pedals are handcrafted in Denmark and offer a 2 year unconditional warranty. $279.00
