I love it how this has become public domain knowledge that is freely discussed. I once briefly mentioned how to mod a TS into something approaching a FD and got a nasty lawsuit this, lawsuit that email from Fulltone.
That's just plain silly. Aren't a majority of the TS mods about as old as the TS?
Maybe it's all TS lore, but i *do* recall reading about sometime in the 1980s that junking the JRC4558D and dropping in something from the TL0x2 family was all the rage for awhile, at least until the whole 'retro' thing of the early-mid 90s brought it all back around.
I dunno. I used my TS in a metal context in the 1980s and 1990s.
if that's your particular universe
Not exactly, but the TS *is* a great circuit. It's not the be all end all of everything, but out of all the sundry distortion-makers out there, it's one of the winners for sure.
