I'm looking forward to mod mine

Is there a way to get this tone with a mod ? they threw it in the fire and made it weird, but is there another way ?

Also, what are some other mods i can do to make it sound actually good? and how can i make it true bypass ?

theres a few sites with lists of circuit bends you could try.. iirc, theres a few that make synth-y sounds, but I can't remember if any are affected by the guitar signal..

for other mods, check out kurtlives' ultimate ds-1 mod. I did those mods, then changed a few things on my own, and it sounds pretty decent..

When he plays his guitar with it, it kind of sounds like the sounds that The White Stripes made in"Icky Thump." I doubt they used that technique but... uh good on them.
