I'm just curious...Has anyone tried out those Modboards from GuitarFetish?
They seem interesting and I'm kind of tempted to try one of them out but want to know if anyone has opinions.

guitar fetish is reliable in what iv got from it so far.. so why not give it a try?

I was thinking of getting the compressor for my strat too but that will be down the line a bit since I'm going to paint it first.

Oranges are actually a revolution though - they're the next step from Rectos IMO.

They're circuit boards that you place in the body cavity of your guitar, and they offer effects such as compression/sustain, analogue delay, etc. Supposed to be easy to install, but what I really want to know is how well they perform, hence this thread.

the good thing about modBoards in general is that the connections to the pots and controls are plug-in/out connectors, not soldering wires. The actual wiring to the signal wire is a soldering issue, but that still takes out a good chunk of soldering work.

What I am seeing right there is only 3 capacitors and a trim pot. Theres no way you can get a true compressor from that...


That's what I thought when I first saw these. Like mentioned above me, there's got to be some kind of digital IC or something on the other side... which would make there analog delay, digital. It's a cool idea, but I can't see very many people actually buying these. I'd much rather have a pedal then FX mounted in my guitar. But that's just me.

^hah yea probably Digital Chips. And look at the site... "Tube distortion". Haha. Since when was tube distortion made by a digital, solid state chip?


Maybe they mean like a Tubescreamer type thing?

You never know... could be some IC's from that company, what's it called... ahh yes, Double Secret Probation Electronics... they make those IC's with the microscopic tubes built in. Really good stuff man. They also make those wah wah's that are controlled by the persons mind. But don't tell anyone, it's still on the hush hush....

Spread the word.
