Schematic and layout ready to transfer, can be found at www.tonepad.com.  

TOOLS: pliers, screw driver, soldering, multimeter; if you decide to make the enclosure will need metal sheet at least 20 ga, clamps, folding tool and scissors.

Step 2: THE ENCLOSURE

Metal sheet abt 20 ga 12x12 in
get the design first including size and draw over the metal start folding the big areas first



Step 3:

Here is the enclosure top and bottom part

Step 4: PAINTJOB

Drill holes first make sure there is not sharp edges an spray paint i use gray primer first and about 4 coats of paint

Step 5:

Populating the pc board with all components i use a socket for the Ic to avoid to burn it when soldering an is easy to replace it for a different model to get the sound taste.

Step 6:

Back view 9v power jack

Step 7:

For the switch i made a millenium bypass check www.tonepad.com

Step 8:

Finish product METAL JAMMING NOW thank you for your time.
<p>I've done many mods to TS's since I bought my first in 1980. Flat freq mods, clipping diode mods, TS-9 to 808 mods, etc. Only two are worth it for me. </p><p>Change that turd of an op amp, that JRC4558 to a bi-fet, like a TL072 or LF353. This adds some complexity and the pedal cleans up better when turning the guitar down. The &quot;mythical&quot; JRC4558 was used because it was cheap, plentiful and got the job done, not for any sonic superiority. They were everywhere, like in cheap radios, cheap stereos, etc. </p><p>I like to change the drive pot from 500k to 1meg (audio). This increases the amount of distortion available, but the original tones are still there. </p><p>I like the stock diodes more than any others I've tried. I don't like assymetrical diode clipping mods. </p>
Can I use another amp?
r u talking about the ic 4558 ? yes u can use dif .
Yep...Such as LM324.
