Really quickly.

I aquired a boss ds-1 today am having trouble taming its fizzyness and getting good amount of useable gain for blues rock.

My setup is
Gibson les paul-->boss ge-7-->boss ds-1-->Marshall jtm30 (all tube)

Cheers

ok so iv started been shredding for a while now. and i was reading other threads and i was wondering, is shredding just playing random notes all over the fret board wherever i want. or am i supposed to shred in some kind of scale??

You can't tame the fizziness on a Boss DS 1, this is how it sounds
Get something better, or crank the f*ck out of your JTM

DS-1, softly put, is rather poor.

A nice Maxon OD808 will be perfect

You should overdrive the JTM - boost with a good pedal like tubescreamer or any other mid-booster - must have lots of mids in there - more volume!

It's not gonna get those tones. The mids are way too scooped.

EDIT: I don't have a schematic with me but I think the tone stack of a DS-1 is post clipping. If it is, try boosting the mids and taking away bass and treble on the GE-7 and put it in front of the DS-1. You probably won't get any of the tones you're looking for but you'd get a half decent distortion tone.

Yeah, you already have two pieces of the puzzle down pretty well (the LP and the JTM), now just get a tubescreamer or something, crank the volume and mids up, and you should like what you hear.
