Could someone PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE take a picture of the inside of the ds-1 if you have it? Or atleast tell me what pin #'s the wires the input and output jack are utilizing? For some damn reason I think I have mine hooked up wrong after doing a mod. Thank you SOOOOOOO much in advance!
Go to the Premier Guitar website. They have a great article all about modding the DS-1. Schematics, everything, I'm sure there are pics. I did mine and it sounds 100% better. Went from unusable buzz to killer distortion.
that doesnt tell me which pinouts are going to the battery, input, output... FUCK. The only other decent schematic i've found is for the wrong version. Guess I have to go to sam ash... buy a new one... open it up... see wtf i did wrong, seal i up... take it back tomorrow. LOL.
yeah that schematic is for the older version of mine. Tom thanks for making me actually learn how to read a pcb!!! LOL. I traced everything back and there is only one wire that's actually ground... i'll figure where it goes tonight. Now I just have to figure out on those i/o jacks which is t/r/s/ Thanks guys!
Tip is positive, sleeve is negative. Shouldn't be a ring on that jack. There's usually a clue if you look at the jack. If not, use your multimeter to check with a cable plugged in.
funny thing... i went and bought a ds-1 to see what I had wrong.... I had it all wired right to the schematic. took it out of the metal box... stopped working. GROUND PROBLEM! I had to have it properly grounded so... it works now! I'll post pics and samples of my friends finished circuit bent ds-1 in a few days.
