Thinking of getting either a DS-1 or Keeley DS-1,
before i pay extra for the Keeley version, i'm wonder if the normal DS-1 has any advantages?

I like stuff like chili peppers, stone temple, nirvana.

Would an original DS-1 be better suited for this?

Oh also, would it be redundant getting both a Keeley DS-1 and a MT-2?
thanks

The only advantage a stock DS1 has is it's cheaper, that's it. The mods are all basically better components that improve the sound quality and cut noise.

For Chili's and Nirvana, you're better off with a DS-2.

It's cheaper, but really doesn't sound that good. If you want to get a DS-1 then definetely pay more to get the Keeley modded DS-1. Or you could also just spend around the price of a Keeley DS-1 and get a better pedal by a different brand that sounds good and doesn't need modding. But I'd definetely go with the Keeley one. But also you know Kurt Cobain
of Nirvana used a DS-2. You might be better off with that. But they aren't as good for stuff like Chili Peppers.

You could get a DS-1 and mod it yourself, it's not that hard.

They are. John uses both a Muff and a DS-2. He's now got rid of the Muff, and is using a Muff'n.
