About This Listing

Unleash the tone of your Blues Deville Reissue with the Supreme Mod Kit from Fromel Electronics! 

This kit works for the Reissue Blues Deville (the Made in Mexico version). If you have an original Blues Deville see my listing for that item. The Blues Deville in its short life has received a lot of acclaim, it sounds good and is pretty reliable, other than a couple common problems. After these mods your amp will sound fantastic and be more reliable. The classic Fender tone is released through these changes. The flabby bottom darkness is gone, what you get is full warm classic tone with nice top end sparkle. Complete kit with detailed instruction book with photo's includes all the following mods. This Mod kit is for the current re-issue Made in Mexico version.

Additionally, the kit upgrades every tone-critical cap in the circuit with high quality F&T and Nichicon electrolytic caps. All the capacitors in this kit were specially chosen for great tone, reliability, and accurate fit in your Reissue Blues Deville.


Please Note: The Supreme Mod kit includes both the "Complete Mod Kit" and "Recap Kit" that we offer and is the ultimate tonal upgrade for your own amplifier!

Included in the kit is all the components necessary to to get your amp in top
shape and the detailed instructions to make the changes easy. If you
have a basic understanding of electronics and soldering skills you can
do these mods in a couple of hours. 

Included in this kit are the following upgrades:


Tone Stack - Get rid of that farty bottom, honky mids, and lack of clarity. High Quality WIMA caps with corrected values for the Bass and Mid Cap and corrected value for the slope resistor.  What about the Treble cap? replace the
cheap ceramic cap with a high quality Silver Mica cap. The result is an
amp that sounds huge and warm with nice top end sparkle, not dark and
buried in the mix.


Twin Mod - Fix the mids on the amp and get rid of that flabby bottom. This mod enables you to take all the mids out of the tone allowing
more flexibility and versatility. This is accomplished with just a short
jumper wire but the result is far better control of your tone.


Brightness - Like to play at low volumes but find the amp too dark? The brightness mod adds sparkle to your tone at low volumes. As you turn your amp up the brightness mod looses its effect so the amp never sounds brittle at high volumes.


Power Resistors-Many problems with the Blues, especially the older ones are from the power resistors that control switching. Two new power resistors
installed properly will avoid many problems down the road.


Plate Load Resistors - Replace all the plate load resistors with 1% 1/2 Metal Film resistors. This amp can develop a loud crackle/static that is caused by the plate load resistors. This mod fixes or prevents this problem and using the same carbon comp resistors found in vintage and boutique amps you add rich
harmonic overtones.


Reverb Mod - Why does the reverb in this amp become a complete wash after turning it up past 3 especially at low volumes? This mod makes the reverb more controllable, fuller, and more natural. This is an easy mod that is
nothing more than clipping one wire and replacing one cap but the result
is amazing.



Global Master Volume Mod - This mod allows the Master Volume to work on both the clean channel and the drive channel.


Switchcraft Input Jacks-
Your input jacks are soldered directly to the circuit board, apply some
tension when the amp is plugged in and you could cause major damage to
the circuit board in the amp. This mod gets rid of the wimpy plastic
input jacks and replaces them with high quality metal switchcraft jacks
that are panel mounted and NOT directly soldered to the circuit board.
Included is a shoulder washer and isolation washer so the input jacks do
not ground directly to the chassis and prevents ground loops. The jacks
come pre-wired with high quality, Teflon Coated, Silver Plated Copper
Core wire. The solder I use is Silver bearing. This is the same quality
you will find in high end boutique amplifiers costsing thousands of
dollars.


Proper Lead Dress - Take a look inside a boutique tube amp and you will see all the wires carefully twisted and placed for greatest reduction in oscillation and noise. The Blues Deville has all the internal wires zip tied together. I give clear instructions on dressing the leads inside the amp for optimal performance, this results in lower noise and less chance for
oscillation.


Electrolytic Cap Upgrade - Replaces all of the power filter and cathode bypass caps with high quality F&T and Nichicon caps.
