Re 201 impedence mod is there a way ...

Ok I dont have the skills or the guts to tinker in my RE201. Is there a way to do the" JFET follower mod to convert the input to high impedance" but do it as a external mod i.e. such as a ped or fx that would be palced in the chain before space echo. I guess this would be along the lines of the Foxx wah retrofit that analogman put in a box. Could it be done?

I did that for years I used a TS808. Now days I just go right in or used a beano boost or old fuzzface,so looking for away to get around the buffered pedal. just less stuff in the path.

Here is Mr. Zoom's original schematic:

EDIT:OK the embedded image is huge so Here is a link

so yeah it can be external (well i'm 99% sure it can)- just need to hook the "17V DC" point up to power and the ground to well, the ground point

Also - had this mod done to my RE-201, it is awesome and highly recommended

Funny how some people like that low-impedance input so much they buy a separate pedal to reproduce it. Something to do with Brian Setzer. Personally I'm clueless to its particular appeal, but it is a popular product for real.

I used to have an RE-201 and would have to use a buffered pedal with for this reason. A Boss tuner works great. Without it my tone was really dull and muddy sounding. I don't see the big deal about using one extra pedal to accomplish this.
