Mod Descriptions


For muff-style pedals:

(scroll down for Your Face mods)

Mid-flat mod: This mod simply takes the characteristic deep mid range notch in any muff-style pedal, and flattens it out to give a whole other pallet of tones.

Cream Mod: Creates a huge output boost, with less fuzz but more punch!
Called the “creamy dreamer” mod, due to an incorrect rumor that this mod was done to Billy Corgans’s pedal when recording Siamese Dream. Well, that’s not true, but the mod is!

Clean Blend: An IC buffer and potentiometer is added so a clean signal can be used to mix with the fuzz-tone. A bass player favorite.

Battery Kill Switch: A toggle that allows you to kill the battery power when the pedal is plugged in. Great for those purists that love using batteries on their pedal boards, but hate having to unplug the input jack when the pedal not being used.

Add Vintage Transistors: Add vintage NOS 2N5133 transistors. They are noisy and nasty, but if you really gotta have vintage, these are the ones for you.

These mods apply to: Tall Font Russian, Small Foot Caprid, White Elk, Small Foot Box of War (more coming soon)


Your Face 60's and 70's:


Bias mod: This mod adds a bias knob that allows you to adjust how the fuzz sounds. It's a hard one to describe in text, but it will let you go from a sputtery, "wrong" weird sound, to a buttery smooth proper Fuzz Face® style sound (and everything in between). Video coming soon!

Anti-Buffer mod: Removes the effect of a buffer preceding the Your Face in your chain. *See detailed description below.

Battery Kill Switch: A toggle that allows you to kill the battery power when the pedal is plugged in. Great for those purists that love using batteries on their pedal boards, but hate having to unplug the input jack when the pedal not being used.

 

*Fuzz Face style pedals do not like buffered pedal preceding them in your pedal chain. Put a buffer in front, and your pedal will sound like a buzzy mess. Buffers can be found in many pedals, even the ones with the silver button style switches that we usually assoiciate with "true-bypass." If you have a delay with "trails" on bypass, you got a buffer. Also any traditional style Boss®, Ibanez®, DOD®, pedals etc. (with the exception of a few models that state they are true-bypass). Many switching systems and wireless setups require built-in buffers to be used in order for them to operate. And finally, active pickups.
