    Default I think I committed a guitar sin....

    ..by adding True Bypass, a DC jack, and a sick purple LED to this vintage MXR EQ?



    Picked the EQ up for $15 at a guitar convention. Cost another $15 to mod it.

    Personally I could do without the DC jack but the rest should be stock features. Great job.

    No.... not bad at all. Those are great mods. I just added 2 LED's to a standard crybaby, and made it true bypass... SOOOOO much better.

    Thanks guys. Changed out the input/output jacks too. The thing was like an ashtray on the inside. 30 years of barjizz and dirt.

    Cool mods! Where did you get the purple LED? I usually change out the LEDs on my pedals and purple would be a cool addition.

    Found the purple LED on eBay. Scored 50 of them for around $7 or $8, but apparently they sell them at radio shack too. Didn't see them there when I looked.

    Sounds great in the FX loop as a solo boost.

    They're actually called "pink" LEDs in Radio Shack land. But they are definitely more purple than pink.
    Dammit!!! I still smell like cotton candy!!!

    bunnyman,

    I've got radioshack's pink LED in my Digitech Whammy pedal that I modded as well. They are very, very different.

    My buddy just picked up a "purple" LED at radio shack, but it's listed as ultraviolet.

    Either way, radio shack's pink is very different than it's ultraviolet, which is almost identical to the purples I got.

    Now that I look at the photo again, it did take as if it were the pink one. In person it's a big difference. Sorry if I came off as rude in my last reply, didn't mean to at all.
