    I had an mij DS1, it while it sounded good at bedroom levels, it tends to fizzle out at gig volumes. Ask shredcow.

    I prefer to use it as a booster rather than a primary drive pedal...check out the setting when Mr Vai used it during "the animal" in live at astoria.....the gain was at almost zero. Using it to boost an already overdriven amp works wonders.

    Swee Lee, Ebenex, Standard Value, Look For Beez, Blackwood should have the BOSS DS-1 in stock..
    If you need them pre-modded, Look For Beez has his Beez mod, Standard Value has the Mike mod, and G77 has Robert Keeley's Ultra Eye-Seeing mod..
    I may not enjoy the stock Taiwanese DS-1 tone as it sounds nasal, but some people have used it in their music and it sounds great.. It all depends on your settings, amp used and guitar used as well..
