    It's their own booster put in that you can use idependently of the overdrive. I think, for the money, you could get a decent booster instead-- and not permanently mess up the pedal

    Or

    Dan at this1smyne does a mod where he installs his booster in the pedal, operated by a third foot switch in the middle

    Good to know-I guess if you truly don't like the boost funtion on the FDII it might still be worth it to make that extra space useful-I wouldn't do that to mine, but the third switch idea is pretty cool.

    I use comp cut, and I find the boost works great in this mode. But having T1M's boost added could be really cool, especially if it could be routed to come after the OD, instead of before it. It would at least be a cool way to sneak another boost onto my board without getting another actual pedal!

    Reviving an older thread here....I am too am interested in this mod. I like the FM mode on my Fulldrive and the boost, as everyone knows, is not that helpful based on where I have my initial drive sound set. It does work well in compcut with the intial drive set very low, but that's not how I want to use the Fulldrive.

    Is the JHS Bomboost any good? I assume its fine as clean boost circuits are not that difficult. I have had the T1M MSB and I like it for sure.

    Anybody have one of these FD2 mods?

    I am considering this option for my fulldrive. I like how the current boost adds dirt. If it only had a smidge more volume boost it would be perfect. Does the JHS mod keep the amount of dirt added by the boost and just add a volume bump?
