Not me, I've always liked the DS-1.

pure ignorance and kurdtz association (and guitar center rawk gawdz by extension)

anyways i've recorded another demo, this time with humbuckers.

https://clyp.it/uhmstzg5?token=6a7f78f7acf6fa6bce7da8de0b25f2ce
modded Cyclone HH > DS-1 > Vox Pathfinder 15r > Blue Snowball mic > computer
I left the tone knob where i like it at around 11:00,
start off clean
distortion: minimum, about 11:00, 1:00, maxed, and then a gain knob sweep

Same. I'd like to try a MIJ one if I had the chance.

The early MIT ones apparently sound the same as the MIJ ones. Anything up to about 1993/1994 IIRC before they changed the opamp.

I don't hate it as I've never tried one properly. I was always an SD-1 user in my early pedal days.

Oh hell yes, the battery in it is finally starting to die and it sounds amazing. I almost forgot how good is sounds with a little voltage starve. Right now it's mostly noticeable with the gain maxed out, but I'm gonna keep playing until it starts to sound especially different. I'll also record a sample of the max gain sound with and without a power supply first. But overall, now I'm really curious about adding a voltage starve control, built in.

You can make/buy little inline voltage sag controls, probably better than adding it to just one pedal.

And means you can stop using batteries 🌳 🌍 🙏

oh fuck, you're right, I could put together a little volt starve box for cheap. (and the battery just happened to be already in the pedal when i got it lol dude totally did not check for that first before sending)
