    If I could own all the pedals I really wanted to that would be just stupid, but if I could own just a few more than I own now I would still have my Keeley/Boss DS-1.

    I really am going to miss that little orange box. Great sounding distortion!

    I have not played one, but have read about them many, many times, and I think you are NUTS to get rid of that pedal.

    Eh...it's all subjective. I don't regret unloading my Keeley DS-1 at all. Hopefully, the guy who bought it likes it more than I did.

    Why not keep the pedal and ditch the wife?

    A DS-1 = blowing your savings? Aren't they less than $50?

    Its about $100 depending on where or how you get one. Listen, I love over drives and distortions, love 'em! But at the end of the day I need Delays, Synths, Octaves, Fuzz ect...

    My collection is missing so much more than a distortion. that extra 100 bucks will turn into a Fuzz (which I don't currently have) down the road. I just compounds if I try and keep them all, so that 100 dollars is really 200 and if I ever get a Mooger Fooger... well you get the picture.

    Well,

    Effeccts boxes are small and can be very cornfusing with all the preety colors..

    I say keep as many as you can.

    I like the Keeley DS1. Very nice pedal for what it does.
