      you are not alone guitar toad.

      i got a spina modded ds-1 and its the only pedal i use. it has some serious mojo happening after it went through john's hands! i am even considering either sending my maxon od-9 to john or sell it since its slowly decomposing in a corner of the house since i got the ds-1.

          Do you have more than one modification scheme for the DS-1? If I got a 2nd DS-1 and sent it to you could you do something totally different but equally cool? Or for the next pedal I send your way would I be better off to get a SD-1 or TS-7 or a Sparkle Drive?

                Sounds dangerous.

                      Keep me from redundant typing and do a search on TS9 mods...Basically the same pedal from memory?

                            Dude this modded already DS-1 sounds incredibly smooth for a distortion pedal! How much better can it get? You guys are making it sound too good to be true.

                              The Sparkel Drive is a Tube Screamer that gone and went to heaven! It's an overdrive pedal,but more transparent than a TS...The extra "clean" knob on this pedal is excellent also,as you can go either fully clean or fully overdriven,but also blend the two tones together...Either way the pedal stays very round and full sounding...Your clean boosts are also very clean and very full overall....My favorite current TS clone and resonably priced..

                              The S Drive and a DS1 are completely different pedals..
