Well I must say that I am a believer. Now I know it has only been one night but I have tried a stock ds-1 several times and though I have always tried to like it, I can honestly say that to my ears it sounded so bad that I could never stand it for more than maybe 5 min. at best. Well I just played the analogman ds-1 pro for about 2 hours through a Marshall 50 watt plexi clone, using an Anderson claissic strat and a less paul std. I am anxious to run it through its paces at a jam this week. I can't believe the difference. I stood on the fence of this mod for at least a year now, thinking no way can that pedal be useable for me, but the hype and discussion made me too curious. So I can say that I am pleasantly surprised but by the same token, I can't imagine Analogman putting out something that doesn't sound good.
