    Instead of just sending out my BD2 and OD3 to get modded by Keeley or whoever, I'd rather like to mod 'em myself. Partially as a learning experience.

    Good source for kits? Or books/plans and places I could get parts?

    I can solder, but my knowledge of electronics is pretty minimal.

    Cool site...although you can get those opamp chips quite a bith cheaper from Mouser. The GE-7 mod kit looks interesting...I guess similar to the Tone Jam Sniper mod?

    I just finished building a delay pedal from B.Y.O.C. The pedal sounds great, it's true bypass, and is VERY quiet. I sort of messed up the graphic a little as it was gettin late and my 6 month old son was getting pretty "demanding"...but here it is...

    For users of guitartone - is the "all mods in one" package the way to go?

    definitely. I bought the ds-1 mod by itself, and all you receive is instructions on how to do 'em.

    It's a great deal for 15 bucks, as I got like 8 different mods for the DS-1. But 50 bucks for 50 pedals is sweet, highly recommended.
