    Just wondering if anyone offers a mod service for the Peterson Strobostomp to make it more durable.

    there's another thread around here that tells exactly what kind of jacks to get and where to order them.

    At that price point, you'd think they would start applying that "mod" as a part of standard production.

    You can get new jacks with nuts for the Strobostomp I from Peterson for free. Totally fixed the problem for me. The nuts stabilize the jacks so the circuit board isn't getting moved around when you put the cables in and take them out. 4 quick solder joints per jack. You might be to analog Mike for a jack replacement. Not sure he is doing that or what the price is, but you can do it in about 15 minutes.

    Hopefully, the Strobostomp3 will come in a much less cheesy enclosure. The one they use now looks like one of those race car bed frames 5 year olds have in their bedrooms.
