I've been trying out a modded Maxon/TS9/808 from this guy, and am extremely impressed. In addition to coming with the original NOS JRC 4558D it comes with three additional interchangeable chips, including a current 4558D.

This is one sweet sounding pedal. And this coming from someone who previously swore off pedals for good!

can you hear a difference between the new and old opamps?
I've only tried one other opamp, the STMicroelectronics LM833N, which I liked a lot. Seemed to have a little more bite or attack. Unfortunately, between my aging eyes and clumsy fingers, I installed the others upside-down and fried them, d'oh! Ken at Westchester Music was great about replacing them for a modest fee. I'm giving the NOS one a good workout this time before trying another. Really smooth and creamy tones with this one.

Cool, TB. Yep, I bought from him off eBay. I went with his Maxon cuz it already comes with true bypass, which is about a $30 mod to an Ib.
