Just won a TR-2 on eBay...

So you bought it first and then you ask?

 

Just wanted to hear a few opinions on it as it won't be turning up for another week so I can't judge it til then. If it's good enough to my ears it will stay, but I was just wondering what other people's thoughts were on its perceived issues.

So what can I expect? I
've read conflicting accounts online about it cutting out a lot of volume/ low end,
so is this really true, or do I have little to worry about?

 

I've had a few of them, and they were all tonally transparent - i.e. no bass cut.

There was a slight perceived volume drop with them all though, but by all accounts Boss fixed this a couple of years ago - so if it's a fairly recent one, you should be OK.

 

If there is a volume drop, I find replacing resistor R9 is the best solution; this is the 'volume' resistor. Reducing the value (stock value is 10k) increases the volume.

This. The C4 mod just makes the wave a little "harder" I think. I did the c4 to mine and thought it helped.

 

I added a 10k volume pot in place of the R9 resistor which made the TR-2 a lot better IMO. It wasn't bad stock but having the option to increase the volume is a plus.

I personally think they sound great and the newer ones don't seem to have the volume drop. But...if you play with any amount of gain, you hear the effect coming through loud and clear...tick, tick tick...rendered it unusable for me. I had two different brand new units and both did the same.
