Mr Scary redux....tonal revelation

Post by JKD » Tue Jul 29, 2014 10:15 pm

Ya know, I have a ton of expensive modded modules but I just put my Mr Scary into my MOD50 for giggles.

Now I remember why I love the Lynch modules......the Salvado Deluxe might have the edge in clarity and bite but it's hard to beat a Mr Scary for the $$ IMO.

That has always been one of my favorite stockers. Along with the blackface SL+.

Way back in the day I had Rob do the clarity and warmth mods to mine and it is still one of two mods that I have never moved over the years.
RM100 - JF Brahma, JF Mr. Scary, JF D-Zilla.
LP Trad Pro, LP Trad Plus, Charvel SoCal, Charvel San Dimas.
Marshall 1960A with V30's and ET65's.
Marshall 1960B with Greenbacks.

Mr Scary was the first mod that really made me stand up and listen to MTS.
I have the stocker as well as a base modded JF one.
Both are awesome and I've usually got one or the other loaded in the RM4.
No such thing as too many,

Yes,

back when I had my highly tweaked MTS setup, Mr Scary was my primary module. The only module I ever came across that sounded great along the entire travel of the gain knob. FTR, I never tried a $300+ module like a Friedman or Salvation.

Is it possible to describe the difference between the stock Mr Scary and the Modded

Well considering Dave F designed them both that's a bit of logical fallacy..heh but yeah, love them both.

True story, I had a Friedman modded Egnater Dual Erect...I think he called tithe eRECTAL....that thing was crazy brutal.
