i didnt know weather to put this here or in GG&A so sorry if its in the wrong place but i just pulled apart my monte allums modded DS-1 becasue for a pedal that gets great reviews and one that ive seen great videos on youtube it sounds kinda terrible

i think this is the tri mod or somthing not to sure but it has a 3 way toggle swicth installed so i opened it up and im an electronics noob so i just searched for anything that was broken snapped or loose etc. everything seemd fine so i plugged a patch lead into the input and the battery check LED lit up but there are 2 LED's attached to the toggle switch one was dull but then got brighter as i flicked the switch so im guessing that ones in perfect working order but the 2nd LED failed to come on at any position of the toggle

its a big ask but if anyone can offer some insight that would be great, thanks

If I'm not mistaken, plug in a guitar and start playing. You should see the LED briefly light up when you strum a note? The mod is using a LED and something else for the clipping diodes, rather than for a visual indicator for something. This isn't the problem in this case.
I've found with my modded DS-1 it takes a bit of knob twisting for it to sound great. Some settings are quite bland and horrible sounding, but once you get the sweet spot the pedal just screams.

Basically a Keeley, with a couple of mods around the tone stack. Mine sounds best with the tone controls slightly rolled down and the gain fairly up - works great with bridge humbuckers.
