Will you mod an SMD compoment pedal?

Short answer, no. But I do mod the Belcat Delay which is surface mount, and have done for ages. I also do the Dexter Mods ‘Wild Turkey’ Klon Klone mod to the EHX Soul Food pedal which is surface mount. The problem with surface mount technology is that it’s design is inspired to cut costs therefore aftermarket mods have to take into account the economies that are used in pedals using SMD. The risk of damage is simply too high for most modders to contemplate. I’m not alone in this, most serious modders prefer to work with your equipment knowing that they wont damage it beyond repair. The costs for setting up an SMD workshop are minimal, but the risk of wrecking your precious pedals isn’t.
