F$%K up my DS-1

Post by Tristana » Mon Dec 11, 2017 8:01 pm

When I was a high school student, I purchased a Boss DS-1 from a small local music shop as it was one of the cheapest options they had that didn't seem like complete garbage.

I was wrong.

Last night, I opened it up for the first time and desoldered the two clipping diodes. It was a great decision.

I'm now eager to screw with the pedal even more and see what can come from it. My question to you is, what's your favorite flavor of DS-1? What mods do you like the most and what should I try?

Love these pedals! They're a blast to circuit bend.
