pretty sure I'll be getting one. It's time I did some jamming with the old ds-1, this is as good an excuse as any.

Could it be that simple? The whole circuit was rehashed in 94 to bring it to work on a 9V PSA supply, but the bulk of the DS1 ran on 9V internally - it was just the ACA adaptor stage that didn't.. But the two circuit boards were so different Boss called them DS1 and DS1A on the circuit boards to emphasise the difference, and the instructions in the service manual state they should be treated differently. However the schematic circuit diagrams are virtually the same with some differences at the voltage input and how the IC chip is connected (extra caps in the DS1 and an extra grd connection). I wouldn't want to say either way.Question for Analog Mike, [or any DS-1 experts]
Is one of the 9 pins in the original TA7136AP chip unused? In other words, could a pin be sniped and then installed in a newer 8pin Jrc NJM3404AL / Rohm DS-1?
Man they are slow... only took them what, 15 -20 years? I always wondered why these large pedal purveyors would continue to market products with problems that others would fix. Looks like they have theirs heads out of their a$sses?A few years back Boss put in the JRC chip that we had been using in our Pro mod for a decade, it does make the DS1 sound better. They also copied part of our TR2 mod. Thanks for the props, Boss!
Man, that blows. I hope such a redesign is a precursor to a Waza version. Seems almost inevitable, but still.You may not have seen the post I made on FB and Instagram.. the new orange ones (not sure on the black ones yet) are now surface mount so we can't mod them anymore.
Yeah I have a 40th edition that's boxed up ready to send to you to mod when I have the $ to do so. It looks like the tried and true DS-1 and nothing like this new version which I assume has been changed in the last few months.You may not have seen the post I made on FB and Instagram.. the new orange ones (not sure on the black ones yet) are now surface mount so we can't mod them anymore.
