    Re: Robert Keely Modded pedals

    I don't have direct experience, but have heard nothing but good things about him.

    PedalTweaker on this forum (aka John) does really nice mods for very reasonable prices - he's done a DS-1 and a TS-7 for me and both are great

    Try a search for "SD-1" in here and you should find some other guys that had John mod their pedals. BTW he's not in business to do this - just does it as a favor to us fellow gearheads on this forum.

    Amp Builds: Tweed Princeton (5F2-A) variation, 2 BF Princeton Reverb clones, & Super Reverb clone

      Re: Robert Keely Modded pedals

      I'd say to go to John for any of the standard stuff. If you have some crazy pedal, he could probably tell you if he's knowledgable about the circuitry involved. He definitely sounds like he has a real ear for tone. If I had some need for a new pedal or to enhance a previous one, I wouldn't hesitate to contact him.

      However, I have had experience with Robert Keely's stuff and I think he is amazing. If you don't feel comfortable with everyone telling you how great John is then you could always try Keely.

        They're great, but very HI-FI with a focus on the lows.

          I would recommend getting in touch with STRATDELUXER97, aka PedalTweaker, aka John S. in regards to the SD-1 mods. Like Chip, John has done some outstanding mods on 3 pedals for me; a TS-5 Tubescreamer, a Boss DS-1, and the SD-1. They all sound top-notch and are stand-alone effects in my chain.

              I got one of his modded DS-1's (the Ultra model) from mrid and it's MILES away from the stock one... awesome rock tone and one of the best DS pedals I've ever used. VERY good stuff!

                    I agree with kaknight (not often that happens, eh? bro? )

                    I've got a keeley modded ts-9 that is the best out there.

                      More props for the Keeley DS-1 Ultra. His compressor is excellent as well.

                          Thanks Chris....Since I only do the mods as a fun hobby and not to make a living at it,I Pretty much pick and choose to do what I'm really good at as far as the mods go..I really don't like spending alot of hours learning on a new pedal unless it's my own pedal to first experiment on...Robert Keeley is a great guy and his mods are really good also...I wouldn't say "Playing it safe" is the way to put this into perspective though....There are several pedals that I'm pretty knowledgable with and I Like to stick with those pedals...It's all good and don't forget about Analog Mike who started the mod craze way before Keeley...Mike is another nice guy who I've spoken to a few times..Call me modest about my mods and yes,I feel I do have a pretty good ear for tone! Thanks again for even mentioning me..
