The Boss DS1 is a staple in a lot of pro rigs guys like Joe Satriani and Kurt Cobain have made this pedal famous. To most peoples ears this pedal doesn't quite nail the tone they are looking for. Kinnatone is here to help with this.
I change key caps and resistors with Metal Film caps and voice your pedal to Kinnatone specs. This increases bass and mids response thickens up your tone, while improving the overall tone of your pedal. Think raging Marshall tone!
Then I add two way clipping switch to your pedal giving you even more tonal options. I then take away the pins and needles sound of the tone knob. Making it usable all the way to the end of the sweep. to finish this off add clear Knobs and bright blue LED to make your pedal look as cool as it sounds! Some have called this a Marshall in a box I've had many compliments on this pedal and have remodded a lot of competitors pedals with my mod. My customers always email me after the fact excited as can be about this mod.
