this is my first post. my son wanted me to mod his bd-2 with a kit he got from Fromel it is the "supreme" mod kit. I accidently put 2 diodes in backwards. They are d7 and d8. I didn't realize they were in backwards until I powered it up and it didn't work. Can this harm the pedal ? I got new diodes switched them out and it still did not work. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Jebbo

That's probably not your issue as diodes act as switches. When installed "backwards" they act as a switch that's turned off thus not allowing electron flow. I would double check all your soldier joints for opens or soldier bridges. I've not done any mods to the BD2 but I do know its pretty packed inside there.

Thanks csbluesman I'll check my solder joints and recheck the diodes I installed. Thankyou for your help.
