Howdy out there. Just wanted to say how much I like the mod that Brian did for my Boost N Scream pedal. The "Pro" version is much more touch sensitive than the regular conventional "scream" distortion. Relax your attack and it plays cleaner, much more like a tube amp. Kudos to Brian whose soul keeps getting more rubbery...(whatever that means!)

Thanks Randy...yeah the BNS Pro is kind of my favorite pedal right now..aside from the LPBx/Blender. The straight BNS was simply a TS-808 Tube Screamer circuit mated with an LPB1.

The Pro Mod eliminates the fizzy compressed sound of the Tube Screamer and turns it into a completey different pedal. In The Pro setting it just works so cool with a Fender amp. Really sends the amp into another realm. A small switch changes it from stock to Pro...but I agree that I would rarely use the stock mode...unless I wanted to get more fuzz at low volume..ie from the pedal (and not from driving the amp hard).

I'll have to make some sound samples..

Brian, just got through practicing and transcribing some Larry Carlton playing
on The Royal Scam by Steely Dan. Was able to replicate his tone at low volume with the Pro setting on the Boost'nScream. Lots of fun!
Thanks again for making such a cool pedal.

Brian, do the mods work on the original blender clone as well, or just the Boost 'n Scream? I had to put the blender aside - it was just too raspy with steel, as it gets nailed hard by the high-impedance pickup - makes it sound a lot different than with guitar.

Jim... I have a mod that eliminates the octave sound with mini switch..but the Blender is still a fuzz (more so than a Boost N Scream or Tube Screamer for example). One of the mods for the Blender involves the tone bypass switch. One of the settings reduces the fuzz in the mix between the cleanand fuzz... Not sure if this is what your looking for. Email or call me if you want.. Brian
