    I'm trying to find someone to do a custom Boss Mod. I contacted the folks at Keeley and they told me (nicely) that they don't have the time to do mods not listed on their website.

    I wanted them to do their Boss TR-2 mod on a Boss PN-2. I thought it would be pretty easy since they both have the Trem feature and the PN-2 just adds panning. I want lower noise and no volume loss when the PN-2 is engaged. True Bypass would also be cool, but not necessary. Anyone have any ideas or know someone? Analogman maybe? Mike you out there? I sent you an email anyway.

    BTW, I'm looking for a second PN-2 in mint/excellent condition. If you have one sitting on the shelf somewhere and would like to sell it, please let me know.

    Thanks!

    Thanks for the recommendation! I sent Brian an email. I didn't know he did TR-2 mods as well. They sound great. Great website. Let's hope he's willing to try his hand on my PN-2.

    If anyone else has a lead let me know. I can't imagine modding my PN-2 could be that difficult for someone already doing a TR-2 mod.

    Hey granite,

    Try contacting AnalogMan to see if he can do the PN-2 mod for you to help you out with the noise and volume loss issues.

    I traded emails with Mike @ Analogman. He's pretty busy right now and asked me to touch base with him in a couple of months. I think he's too nice to say no to my minor mod. So....I guess Brian at Indy is my last hope. I'm waiting to hear from back from him.

    I guess this is what happens when you become successful at your craft, no time for the little man. Maybe I should have told them that I'm really Eric Clapton. :)
