I am not sure who does the IDX Pro modifications.

All of the Classic III SL, Classic ID and IDX pro units I had with the Threshold & Ground Balance modifications were done by 'Mr. Bill' Crabtree himself. Sad that he had to quit doing them. I have heard of some attempts people make, but their clip and re-solder talents are not quite up to spec and I have seen some units that didn't work well.

I heard that Keith Southern does the modifications, but I haven't checked with him about that, or know what the time element might be or the cost he charges to do it. You could track him down and send him an e-mail. He might only do the modifications for a charge, or he might have the schematics you are looking for to attempt it yourself.

A modified IDX Pro is another one of the better detectors to be around this past twenty years.

Good luck if you do the work yourself.
