Ten Band EQ Silent Night Mod Service
Choose your modifications from the drop-down menu then choose "New Pedal" to get the mod installed in a new pedal or "Your Pedal" to send us your pedal and we will install it.
Silent Night - This pedal tends to be pretty noisy meaning it has a lot of background noise. This mod drastically (by more than half in most settings) quiets down the background noise. Not only does this quiet down the pedal but also gives the pedal a much better overall tone.
Modification works on all versions (Blue, Black, or Silver).

True Bypass Options:
3PDT Bypass - We use a 3PDT footswitch to bypass the pedal. This mod requires drilling a hole in the Blue version for the switch. The 3PDT can turn on/off all the slider LED's so there's no need to choose a LED color.
Silent Step - Microcontroller/Relay bypass that uses a soft touch switch to actuate the relay. See the Silent Step for more info. This mod requires drilling a hole in the Blue version for a switch.
LED color - This mod only applies to the Silent Step mod. The Silent Step requires we turn all the slider LED's on permanently except the Volume LED. We use the Silent Step to turn the Volume LED on/off for bypass indication. If it's the same color as the other LED's it is hard to determine if it's on or off so picking a different color for the Volume slider is a good idea. If you choose Black/No Change you will not have a on/off LED indicator.
If you choose to have the mod installed in your pedal you send in, after purchase you will receive a email with the information you need to send your pedal in.

This review is regarding the "silent night" mod (including the "silent step" relay). This is a definitely a necessary upgrade if you have one of the old 18 volt Kerry King EQ pedals. I had one of these when they were new & remember them being a little noisy, but not as hissy & static heavy as the one that I picked up on Reverb recently. I ordinarily use another outfit for my pedal mods & repairs, but they haven't ever cracked one of these open. It took a while to find a shop that did. In fact Griffin is THE only one I found that offers this service. Short & sweet: this was garbage & now it is amazing - in fact probably better than new. If you've read this far, but don't own an EQ pedal, the 18 volt MXR Kerry King EQ is killer once you get it cleaned up. Modded, it may be the best one available.
