The TS-808 is considered by most as the holy grail of Tube Screamers, and the True-Bypass switch makes it even better.  Bring your TS-9 to a new level of warmth and texas blues grit with this mod.

What is interesting about the True-Bypass mod is that it actually improves tone when the pedal is on as well as when it is off!  The addition of the True-Bypass switch allows the signal to skip over several now useless parts that were previously used to help with old switching system.  What this means is less signal loss even when the pedal is on.  So this mod will actually make your pedal sound better than a TS-808!

When you look at prices you cant beat this.  A TS-808 Reissue costs $179.99 while a TS-9 costs only $99.99.  Thats an $80.00 difference and thats without the True Bypass Switch!  So as you can see this mod will more than pay for itself. 

The parts we use are not cheap, knock off components.  These are the real deal.  They are the same high quality components that Robert Keeley uses in his mods. 

The parts included in this kit are:                     

1) JRC4558 and RC4558 Chip - The JRC4558 is what is used in the TS-808 Reissue and is what most people talk about when they discuss vintage Tube Screamers.  However, the RC4558 was used in about half of the vintage TS-808's.

2) IC Chip Socket - so that you can easily swap between the JRC4558 and RC4558 chips to find out which gives the tone you like best.

3) 2 high quality Metal Film Resistors - The old TS-808's used carbon composition resistors instead of the higher quality metal film.  There is no difference in tone between the two different types, however there is an increase of excess noise with the carbon comp resistors. 

4) Ultra Bright Blue LED - This mod replaces the old dim red LED with an ultra bright blue LED. 

5) True-Bypass Switch - This makes your pedal completely transparent when the pedal is off and improves your tone when the pedal is on. 

6) Solder and De-soldering Braid - Included is 60/40 rosin core solder which is just what you need for this type of work and also de-soldering braid.
