It's time...........................for the MDRT transformer to be installed.



Behold, goods direct from Belgium's finest witch dr of electronics (MJMP you will need to identify all those parts as I haven't a f**king clue what they are.....apart from the MDRT lol)

Before I make the mods I'll make some recordings.  I have recently fell in love with good old stock MP1 again and she's rocking like a mutha fucka now!

Before I do this who did up the guides for MDRT replacement and noise Mod?

I think they could be improved and if I can collaborate with someone on this to make them better I think it would be a good thing.  I do documentation as part of my job and I'm used to making guides for idiots that details every step so I think I could improve the existing guides.

We can upgrade these together then?

I mean no offence but there are some things I think are written from an experts point of view.  As opposed to a guy who can just operate a soldering iron point of view..................like me?

Ok attached is a song using stock MP1 (pre MDRT)

patch is for rhythm

od1 7.5 od2 7.5 Master 5 Bass 2 Mid 2 Treble 2 Presence 6

Patch for Solo is

od1 7.5 od2 7.5 Master 5 Bass 4 Mid 2 Treble 2 Presence 6


No I know there a few little mistakes where one track on either side differs from the other, I could not be bothered to fix these because it still gives you an idea of the MP1 sound I get.

The solo is nearly there.  It's taken a lot of practice to get it close at that speed.  Funny I can do shit like that all day off the cuff and no problem, but when it comes to having a set piece suddenly it's more difficult!

See what you think.

Impulse I am using is Marshall1960B-K120s-SM57-Cap-0_5in               and that's a JBL speaker I believe.

Well once I begin  doing the mdrt upgrade I take photos.  Then add a bit of text to them detailing the step, then we'll blend the original together some of the new detail.  Sound like a plan stan?

If not I'll just document everything here with pictures for everything, I mean everything!  Then it's an MDRT "for dummies" guide.  I feel like starting the mod now since I have recorded what the stock one sounds like.

MJMP shall I do the MDRT first then the noise mod?  If I've asked this before forgive me  :'(

Are the snake skin?  If so yes  :lol:
