I am huge fan of Keeley Mod Boss Ds-1. And I have it. I like early Satriani tones. And I want to use Keeley Ds-1 with a solid state amp.

Which amps do you advice for use with Boss Ds-1 Keeley Mod pedal? Jc-120 is too expensive in my country. (even used jc-120) So I need cheap 20-30 w solid state amp.

I can buy these used amps :

Fender 25r (I think its too harsh at youtube videos. Or maybe video quality of clips was bad)

Peavey Vypyr 30 (but modelling works well?)

Hughes Kettner Edition Blue

I need your great helps.

Ps : I don't think I buy a tube amp. Just ss amp.

Yep, choose your amp first and then a pedal to shape it's tone. Most OD pedals sound like ass in front of a low price SS amp. Ponder this a bit longer b4 buying anything.

What is your budget and location? And screw you your going used because you bought the pedal first.

Whatt? No I did not buy the pedal first. I have already Marshall Dsl15C. I tried many low watts tube amps for home studio (Lil night train, Blackstar Ht-5, Laney cub 15 head. Currently Dsl15c)

I tried Boss Ds-1 with above amps but I didnt like results so much. lil night train give muddy sound. Blackstar Ht-5 has much bassy tones. With laney cub it has dark tones.

So I tried Boss Ds-1 with Marshall MG100. I was shocked. Detailed, tight sound. So I decided to search ss amps.

So I will use both Dsl15c and SS amp and Boss Ds-1.

Boss Ds-1 response different reaction for different amps. Tight, or muddy etc. So Boss Ds-1 is not a tyre. It has soul

A DS1 has soul? Can you please introduce me to your drug dealer?

Cratty buddy I think you are to caught up in trying to match a pedal to an amp to get a sound that most likely wasn't produced originally by either. tone chasing can be a tough game and starting with a pedal is the stuff of total fail. start with the amp and then find pedals etc that go with it to get you where you want to go tone wise. I play a lot of 70s hard rock stuff through gear that wasn't around at that time. the trick is to find stuff in your budget that will go together to "reasonably" get you what you want. joe used tube amps so that would be a good place to start.

if you like the marshall MG sound, buy a marshall MG.

Cratty, you've basically proven that your tastes are very different from 'the norm...' That's fine, but it means our opinions may not help much. You just gotta try stuff and see what you like.

The DS-1 isn’t known for sounding good with solid state amps. Using a Keeley modded DS-1 in front of a modeling amp is probably going to sound like the host of heaven busting a synchronized wet fart. Just get the Vypyr and use the onboard tones for now and start saving up for a tube amp.

Maybe try a bass amp? (Shot in the dark.) Were you only playing the amps you listed with a ds1 in front? If so, each of those amps you listed may nail the tone your ears wanna hear but the ds1 may have skewered your ear's opinion. It seems kinda trollish that the ds1 and an mg are what you prefer, not that there's anything wrong with that if you're not a troll, maybe you just like a harsh fizzy sound. I like the ds1 too, btw. Not as the centerpiece of my rig, but its a decent pedal for what it does.

If you like the MG100 sound more than tube amps, then you must hate listening to almost every popular guitar recording ever made.

Must suck to be you.

Yep, if a Marshall MG is your tonal nirvana, my opinions will be of no use to you. Carry on.
