Decided to fill everyone in on the transparency mod I did to my Bad Monkey since I have gotten quite a few requests for it lately. So heres my "Not So Ripe Banana" mod  :D
As you can see modding a bad monkey can be a pain, because pretty much everything is surface mount. But there is a few things you can do to enhance it.

Ok now for the mods...
You can change C5  (.047uf) to a .1uf(mids cut) or .15uf(more mids cut) More cut equals more transparency.  Since its a Tubescreamer clone as you know it has a slight mid hump this mod takes that out of the picture. Digitech did a good job of removing most of it but this takes it the rest of the way.

To this...

Also you can change out C11  (22uf) to a 1uf if you would like to increase the bass on the pedal. I found the pedal to have plenty of bass on tap in the first place so I just left it alone.
And lastly for cosmetic purposes I thought a yellow led looked alot better in the already green and yellow pedal I slapped in a yellow led. Plus it reminds me of a not so ripe banana  ;)

Hope yall enjoy the info. Its a quick easy mod and works great especially if you are using it as a clean boost..

End result...

What type of cap did you replace it with? Anything in particular?

What do you mean by a .15uf? What should I type in to google to find it! :haha: I am really interested in buying one of these pedals and would like to do this mod! Thanks for the great info and pictures btw!
