What's up. I'm thinking about modding my DS-1 with the Diode Mod. Does this decrease the amount the amount of distortion I can get? What's the biggest change in the tone? Will it be suitable for metal music? Any answers are appreciated.
Are you talking about clipping the Diodes in a DS-1? Namely D4 and D5?

Those diodes IIRC are used for a bit of extra gain so if anything clipping them would probably clean the pedal up a bit and cut down on some of the rattiness but I dont think itll add gain if thats what you wanted as a result.
