Fender Blues Jr. Upgrade Kit

Fender Blues Junior Upgrade Kit - USA & MIM

(Other amp mod kits available)

From the Fromel website:

"Unleash the tone of your Fender Blues Jr. with these modifications from Fromel Electronics!

From the factory, this pint size wonder has a lot of potential, but with some select Fromel tweaks this amp can stand toe-to-toe with some of the finest boutique amps on the market.  After the mod, the amp boasts clean, sparkling top end, a huge sweep of mids and rich bass response.  The smooth, slightly compressed tube breakup stays articulate thanks to improved power filtering and upgraded tone caps.  The reverb is also made more lush and rich, with smoother decay.

Additionally, the kit upgrades every tone-critical capacitor in the circuit with high quality F&T and Nichicon electrolytic capacitors.  All the capacitors in this kit were specially chosen for great tone, reliability, and accurate fit in your Blues Jr."

Optional Reverb Tank replacement, Standby Switch Upgrade, tube replacement, Transformer Upgrade, Extension Cab mod and Reverb Footswitch mod kit also available. Create the boutique amp that you've always wanted!

Boss DS-1 Distortion Upgrade Kit

Boss DS-1 Distortion Upgrade Kit

From the Fromel website

"This is not called the supreme mod kit for nothing. Included are all the parts to voice your DS-1 for 5 different styles. This Supreme mod takes things one step further and replaces just about every capacitor in your signal path with high quality Film or Non-Polarized Electrolytics.

Nothing says underdog like a Boss DS-1, but with a little help from Fromel Electronics, you can transform you DS-1 into a snarling beast!  After the mods your pedal will have thick, rich distortion and gain to spare.  With our mod, the DS-1 is surprisingly warm, with great bass response and a wide range of useable tones.  Also, when you max out the pedal it produces nasty fuzz with loveable, splatty tones….and all this from a seemingly harmless DS-1.

Other kits skimp on quality, using ceramic and tantalum, and EL capacitors. The Supreme Kit contains only the highest quality film and silver mica capacitors for tight tolerances and superb audio performance.

After the mod you will not believe it's the same pedal. Included is a water-clear bright orange LED."

$29.95 CAD plus $60 CAD Installation
