Ideology Behind the Mod:

After playing with Boss BD-2 for a while I was not impressed. No blues player would ever need the gain this unit puts out. Even the minimum gain was blowing my head off. This pedal was very shrill sounding, I couldn’t use the tone control at all, way too piercing. There was also fuzziness and buzz when the gain control went past noon.

Anyways I like bright clear tones and fat tones and I am not a huge fan of over the top gain. With this is mind I started moddifying the pedal’s circuit.
