    I've had an EBS Unichorus for about a year, I picked it up in a trade and have used it without issue. Yesterday I opened it up to tweak the internal trim pot and found something I thought was very odd. There is a capacitor soldered across two terminals on the wrong side of the circuit board. It looks to me like someone modded the unit.

    I'm hoping someone has some insight since this looks very odd to me. The first picture is my unit with the rogue capacitor and the second is one I found on the net. Notice the latter does not have the cap! 20171229_141035.jpg ebschorus5.jpg

    Yours is a Revision C. The other is an A. It also has the trim pot in a different location. Most likely it has not been modified.

    Yep. It’s pretty obvious that the 2 pictures are different, 1 says rev A and the other rev C1.
    Are u blind or...?

    Your pedal is not modded, unless mine also has been tampered with. :)

    thanks! It just seemed very strange to me to have a cap soldered to the other side of the board. I've never seen such a thing and figured it was not a common practice and could be some aftermarket modification. I'm relieved to find that is apparently not the case. Thanks for taking the time to respond and popping the back off your pedal!
