    Some years ago i bought a bulk of small boxes that had old vintage electronics and i found 2 1N34A Sylvania Germanium diodes and i was recently reading of people modding the EH SoulFood chancing 2 diodes to 1N34A Germanium ones to tame what they are calling a harsh overdrive and to get it to spec to the original Klon.

    I really dont hear that harshness some say it has at all, but im tempted to just try them out to hear the difference if any at all.

    Has any of you done a mod like this to your SoulFood?

    Cheers.

    You won't hear a difference, we tried it over a year ago.

    OK, just went and read your page about this.

    Thanks. I will do the switch thing with this diodes, they are very old and maybe i get something different.
