I did this mod to my SD-1 actually, and I wasn't too impressed. Not at all actually. I think I know how an 808 is supposed to sound (reference: Vintage ibanez 808, sparkledrive, BYOC OD,...), and that so called "SD 808" didn't even come close. Rrreally dark sounding, muddy even.

But feel free to give it a try, for all I know you'll love it.

It could be the components you used. I found it fairly similar (not exact of course, but very close sounding to the 808 reissues).

 

My friend did the mod and I felt pretty stupid after spending more $ on an actual vintage 808 (which I ended up not using). :o
