    I just finished another modded pedal. I've done a couple of these for some friends but never did one for myself. I live literally an 8 minute drive from one of the more popular companies that mods these pedals and sells them for a mint and its a pretty popular mod. I did basically the same thing but made my bass response knob much more user friendly and added a 4th clipping option instead of the normal three. Kind of a fun pedal to work on and, unlike the popular belief that LED clipping doesn't sound good on this type of circuit, it sounds great. Even when plagued through a bright sounding guitar like a tele.
    I stool need to put the labels on it but here it is.

    The two switches on the left control which clipping mode it's in and the knob on the right is for the bass response. I built this one to so I can go inside and change the values of the bass response cap if I choose to in the future.

    Awesome job. I am really curious how this mod sounds.

    I am working on a sound clip for it. Once I get it done I will post it.

    Here you go. Please forgive my playing as it is suffering from lack of talent cooties. But you should at least get an idea of what the pedal can do.
    I was playing with my Stagemaster Scorpion (Atomic P'up) into the pedal into the amp.These were my amp settings on the clean channel.

    The pedal is out front and not in the amp's loop.

    That is crazy how much of a difference that mod makes. Turns the Soul Food into a completely different beast. Now I am wishing mine was modded like that. Thanks for sharing and taking the time to make the video.

    Lost the sound clip so I had to repost it.
