Dexter Mods Marshall Guv’nor Plus 2 ‘TerrorMod’

She’s A Dexter Mod!

This is a custom mod made to the exacting specifications of Terrorways guitarist Dean Martelli.

The Terrorways were one of the bands that defined the New Zealand punk rock scene way back in the late 70’s. They have two tracks on the famed AK79 album, Never Been to Borstal and She’s A Mod. The Terrorways recently reformed for the AK79 Reunion concert in November 2008. In 1979 I was playing drums in a punk band myself and the AK79 concert was a chance to see those great bands again. I caught up with Dean after the Terrorways set and we talked about his Marshall Guv’nor 2 pedal and I agreed to try and tailor the tone for him.

The mod starts off by upgrading the clipping section to provide a more tube like creamy overdrive and remove the stock pedal’s buzzy sonic shortcomings.

The pedal is then given a bottom end tweak to ensure that the bass and lower midrange is boosted giving a classic tube-correct Marshall tone. The upper mids and top end come through loud and clear without any fizz or buzz.

Of the TerrorMod Dean says “I’ve used a Marshall Guv’nor 2 in my kit for ages, but it’s always lacked that bottom end punch that I’ve needed. When I spoke to Dave Stewart of Dexter Mods about it he agreed to address the problem and make this the perfect pedal for the sound I use. It was great watching the mod develop in Dexter’s Laboratory and see how Dave tweaks the pedal’s to get the best out of them. The end result is one I’m happy to endorse. If you want the perfect punk rock Marshall sound, buy this pedal and add three chords”

The mod includes an extra bright blue L.E.D instead of stock red L.E.D and a brand new 9 volt battery.

The mod is guaranteed and if there are any problems when you receive the pedal simply return to me, I’ll service it, send it back and refund your shipping costs.
