Boss OD20 and Fender Chorus competition series

Postby Akman » 04 Nov 2017, 13:30

Hi guys,
I would like some assistance with a mod that will help bring out the lower frequencies, mid range/lower midrange which these two pedals seem to block. They both are a bit thin sounding. Does anyone know what parts I could change and what I can replace them with to bring out a fuller warmer tone and wider range range of frequencies that is already in my clean tone. These pedals kind of remind me of what DS1s and metal zones do to ones dry tone.
My chorus has a mix knob that I like to turn way up- unfortunately it starts to suck up all the natural low end.
Thanks so much I’m new

OD20 is a digital modelling effect: I think it probably has no parts you could change to alter the tone.

Yep, I’m not talking about changing each digital preset.
The pedal itself has a seperate tone knob, level , Drive etc which you can adjust , so I’m sure one can adjust those knobs especially the tone dial to bring out more low end and midrange.

Can you save the tone setting alongside all the other parameters within the drive sound? Manual suggests you can. This makes me think the tone is manipulated within the digital domain cannot be globally altered by changing a couple of caps.

Hmmm I’ll have to check that. But anyway with regards to my chorus pedal, there are theee knobs: depth, speed and mix. I like the mix knob cranked up but by doing so it thins the sound, removes lower natural frequencies and increases some gain and compression(tightens the sound) . What could I do to let in more bass warmth and natural openness?
