Keeley Modified DS-1

Starting looking at these last night.  Anyone tried them?  Loads of comparison videos on youtube.  Sounds like a great pedal.

I checked the comparisons between the two (stock vs modified), but just for the sake of curiousity. But, in my case, I only use overdrive pedals instead of distortion.

I think the DS-1 is more of a OD than a distortion pedal for which I play a lot of overdriven blues....

I'm going to look up the keeley mod and see if I can't do this myself...

I had one of these, it is more of an overdrive and it was a great pedal to kick up the gain for a lead. My only gripe was it didn't sound good for songs where i wanted to keep the pedal engaged and roll the volume off, it was to trebly for me in that range. I traded it for a keeley modded blues driver that more satisfied my needs at the time.   But you know different setups make different tones and everyone's ear is different, i actually had vintage noiseless pickups when i was using that pedal, and i think that was more of my problem than anything. I never could get those to sound like i wanted them to .

I did watch a vid last night of the Nobels ODR-1, seems like a really good pedal.
