Why doesn't the DS-1 get much respect? I got mine with a 10% off coupon at GC and it was already on sale at the time, so I paid around $25, which is a freaking awesome deal for *any* pedal. I think it sounds pretty good for a $25 pedal. And there are lots of mods out there if you can handle a soldering iron and have a drill press. Sure, the thing's not a boutique pedal, but I don't think I need to be embarassed if I have a DS-1 on my pedalboard. Why all the hate?
