i bought JHS angry charlies pedal. i love it. so i replace the original parts with more better parts.
1. all Epcos cap to nichicon FW. this is 100% sound better. i compare it side by side.
2. change all evox cap to wima (i haven't side by side to compare)
3. change all metal film resistor to japanese takman metal film resistor.
i compare it with my friend no modded angry charlies. sound bad than original much too much. less bass, sound too flat.
but i guess problem come from my solder skill. i use WBT solder. but i haven't remove old solder and add new solder of DC plug, just melt the old solder and stick the wire.
my question is is evox cap sound better than wima in distortion pedal?
will good resistor (Hifi grade) sound better in guitar pedal?
what brand of solder i should use for pedal? is WBT ok?
