    :agreed:


    maybe joe's modded one is better, but i don't really think you should ever need a distortion pedal, OD's, yes, distortion, no

    I once had a Keeley mod'd MT-2. Maybe not as good as a JoBo job, but way better than stock.

    I found the best setting of all:


    aside. :lol:

    yeah, on top of the fizzy buzzy noise they call distortion, it sounds real fake and plastic-ish when at high volume

    my favourite trick it does is the one where it replaces itself with cash :agreed:.

    prada.. you do know that you can use a distortion pedal for not-amp-distortion tones.. with the clean channel, right? right. good. :) lol

    adds a little variety - if i think about getting a DS-1 JoBo style.. well damn i'll spend more and i cant afford to.

    I just thought that people that had modded or unmodded ones could try these out, no need for all the hate.

    Hate is such an ugly word. I don't hate the MT-2. I just think they suck and I'm glad I was able unload mine for what I paid for it. :metal:

    The SD1 might sucks beside this MT2 mod, not for metal but should be great in a clean channel. Everybody knows that a great distortion come from an amp, get a great clean boost (Carl Martin are great, the CAE boost or whatever) and your set for playing tight metal. Ironically the Carl Martin Plexitone sometime sound better than the dirty channel on certain amps. The SD1 sucks! Even with any mod it will always be anything but an SD1, a little better but still an SD1.

    The monte allums mod on OD-1 sound good too.

    Monte Allums Mods - Individual Pedal Mods

    This sample is a us of the MT-2 as a boost with the switch at the lower gain option.

    Monte Allums Mods - Individual Pedal Mods

    For those who are desperate with the SD1 maybe you'll like the GT mod from Monte Allums.

    Or if you want a flat EQ sound close to the Fulltone's sound here's a free mod. All you need is an electronic store where you can buy the things you need.

    I had mine modded, now it actually sounds nice, but it doesnt really sound metal, seems to have lost all the gain it used to have.

    You can take back the gain in your pedal if you got some skills with soldering. Call the guy who did the mod or if you can't try to reach monte allums, he can maybe help you. Hope this inspire you for the better. I don't like my SD1 much but I got a new mentality now, it is stupid to loose too much money by selling our things half-price and always buy new gear. You can improve your sound with almost any kind of gear, of course it take a minimum of quality but simplicity is the best. Playing good riffs :shred: is good and use our gear at the best of its potential is better :rocker:. I'm sure if you're playing with your pedal in a good tube amp with a minimum of gain you can get a great sound... Hope it's inspiring you. For my part I'll mod my SD1 anyway, It just gonna be amusing.:lol:
