Ive done numerous searches and cant quite find what im looking for...


Does anyone know of good Boss Blues Driver mods? Perhaps in the same vein as the Keeley or Analogman ones.

Im reasonably nifty with the soldering iron, so want to have a go at improving the overall sound.

Thanks in advance.

I know where they are listed, but the site is down. Wait a few hours and I'll get back to you with a full list of mods.

BD-2 Mods

D3 Change this 1SS133 to a different (1N4002) diode for asymmetrical clipping. This adds second order harmonics. This adds to the tube type sound.

D7 D8 D9 and D10 Change 2 of of these diodes from 1SS133 to a single 1N4002. More second order harmonic distortion. Although the change is slight, it can be perceived. Keeley actually takes out one of the two pairs and replaces it with a single 1N4001.

C1, C7, C6, C12, C13, and C15 Change this electrolytic capacitor to a 10uF tantalum. Tantalum capacitors sound better than electrolytic capacitors. Keeley likes these anywhere there is signal coupling at this high a value. Tantalum capacitors are easy to find in this range.

C14 Increase input coupling capacitor value to 0.1uF for increased bass response from your guitar.

C100 Here is where Keeley can affect the tone control. He prefers a little more lower-midrange and bass frequencies through the tone section. You can increase the lower frequencies by increasing the capacitor value to 0.033uF. Install a switch to add a 0.068uF cap in parallel with this value for the Phat Mode!

Most of the ceramic caps are changed to Expensive Silver Mica (Available through Small Bear Electronics www.smallbearelec.com or www.mouser.com or www.digiley.com). This is what makes the Keeley mod sound so good. A noticeable reduction in noise. An increase in the smoothness and no harshness left. This type of upgrade is not found in anyone's mods. The best sound is right here.
