I knew when I tried it I had to offer it as an option on my Daddy-O Mod. This Tri-Gain Mod will add a ton of tonal options to an already great sounding Daddy-O Mod.
With this switch we will toggle between two 1N4002 Diodes and two 3mm Red LEDs. So you get the smooth, creamy saturation of the 1N4002 Diodes and a Volume Boost that the LEDs will give the circuit.
With the switch in the middle position all diodes are bypassed which will give you a huge volume boost and will allow you to get a much cleaner gain. You’ll find that the LEDs will add volume, bass, a very smooth gain plus a ton of thick sustain.

This mp3 was recorded on a Strat with a DiMarzio PAF Pro at the bridge and two DiMarzio Virtual Vintage pups at the neck and middle positions. The amp was a stock 2000 Fender Hot Rod Deluxe and the mic was a SM57.
IMPORTANT – Danelectro has changed the circuit of the Daddy-O. They have switched to using smd components. Please note that my mods will NOT work with this new design and I will not be offering a mod for it. The tiny smd components are next to impossible to mod or replace. If you are buying a mod for your Daddy-O open your pedal up and make sure it looks like this. If it does my mods will work with your pedal
