    Introducing my first pedal mod :)

    Ingredients:

    (1) Colorsound Tonebender (see above)

    (1) 1 Spot 9v Battery Clip Adapter [​IMG]

    (1) Drill with necessary drillbits.

    No more batteries for me! I'd like to get a nicer rubber attachment for the 9v hole, but the electrical tape will do the job for now.

    What do ya think fellas? :) I'm pretty happy with it.

    That's an interesting way to do it, but way to go!

    lol wait, the picture is confusing me-- did you make it so you can power the tonebender with a power supply?

    Right.

    The Tonebender, in original state, is battery-powered only.

    Damn that really sucks... was it hard? I'm getting my tonebender in tomorrow and didnt know about this..

    You would use 9v DC power right?

    It would be easy to add an actual DC jack to one.

    Yeah, same as the Boss/1 Spot/etc adapters. Like sonicvi said, I've heard it's not hard to add an actual DC jack, but I don't know where to get one or how to do it. I figured this was just as easy and got the job done.

    Yeah this was really easy. All you have to do is drill a hole in the spot of your choice and get the 1 Spot or Godlyke battery clip jumper cable.

    The battery lasts a decent amount of time, but I didn't want to be buying batteries all the time to keep the pedal powered.

    Nicely done. That's resourcefulness at it's finest. :)
     
  11. its sucks that they don't have one standard.. My 70's one does and I have seen pics of other 70's ones with the power thing in the same spot so I presume its original :confused:

    Ah well, it has one eaither way :hyper:
