    hey folks

    i have a NYC Bassballs, i took it to be modded and the guy refused on the grounds that it was an original..

    i dont really trust the guy and at least think i should check elsewhere..

    i got the thing second hand and have worked with several producers with "original" pedals since so its entirely possible that i either unwittingly got an original or ended up with one of the producer's pedals, just need to be sure before i call round to see if their bassballs is a bit shinier than it should be!

    So can anyone tell me what, if any are the distiguishing factors that will allow me to tell?

  2. I believe the original did not have an LED on it. That'd be a pretty easy way to tell if ur pedal is from the 70's or not.
