    great pedal, but the sweet spot is with the tone at 12 o'clock i think. that said, the brittleness of the the high end makes for good noise rock...

      I think it's flat out horrible! The SD1 on the other hand is amazing...and not only for it's price!

          First ever guitar pedal that I was ever aware of, even before, I started playing guitar. It's a standard, but IMO it suck ass.

            It was my first pedal to and I used to play it thru my bros boom box. Metal all the way I thought...it couldn't be any better if you asked me! Scorpions and me...Mattias Jabs in the left headphone and me and my DS1 in the right and my tone was just as good, if not better

            I'm glad my ear developed a little

              Even then, I thought the sound was horrible. I think... it's actually the pedal that turned me off to the word "distortion" even in a very young age?!

                  I never had any luck with them .....then I got a Boogie about 5 years ago....... let me tell you the Boogie LOVES the DS-1 and I've had a DS-1 around ever since. I use both a modded one and a stock one.

                      I have a SD-1 sitting here I bought last week, ready to return for an OD-3. Good choice? Reason being my amp does subtle OD well enough on its own and I want something a little stronger but still under the distortion level.

                        I have posted this photo before.....yea I know nice boots

                        Weather or not the DS-1 works for you or not depends on how you use it and what you use it with...but this is true with all pedals and I'm sure you all know that

                        If you have ever watched Via: Live at the Astoria London then you know that he uses it for a lead boost into already cranked Carvin Legacys, and it is not the tool he uses to get his main tone. So it is to Vai what the Tube Screamer is to SRV...a tool used for lead boosts.

                        OK enough on that...I own a Keeley modded DS-1 Ultra and it has got to be the most disappointing pedal I have purchased from RK

                        So...OK I'm not Vai, my Keeley modded SD-1 on the other hand will be around when I die

                        Anyway...just because it did not do what I wanted doesn't make it a bad pedal, it goes right back to my opening statement "weather or not the DS-1 works for you or not depends on how you use it and what you use it with" . As with all pedals...if it works for you ROCK ON!!

                          Exactly. I have that DVD and watch it alot. The DS-1 for Vai is just a lead boost to smooth out the Legacy.

                            I just got myself a ds-1 and its pretty good. Sounds good with a bass, too
