So I bought a used/new condition Boss DS-1 distortion pedal from Guitar Center for the whopping total of $15. I bought it with they intention of modding it and in stock trim it isn't doing much for me. It came with a brand new $4 Duracell 9v so I thought it was a pretty good deal and a great candidate for a fun experiment. There are lots of mods for that pedal out there and I wanted to know which ones UG has tried.

Pedals I already have a Russian Big Muff, a Metal Muff, a Fender Blender and an MXR Distortion + so I don't want to clone any of those.

Amps I play are VHT Pittbull UL, Peavey XXX, a Marshall JMP-1 pre and an old Peavey Mace.

I usually play plugged straight into the amp without a pedal but I am a real gain slut and I have the gain cranked. I like the sound of my amps so I'm not looking to transform anything for $15, just a "little more" or slightly different take on them.

If you have a link to your recommendation that would be great.

Thanks UGers,
Bob

Thanks NnjRik. Keeley mod seems to be a popular choice. I was surprised to see a modder who sells pedals giving away his design.
