The DS-1 provides a harder distortion effect for guitar and keyboard sounds. Instead of toneless, fuzzy distortion, the DS-1 faithfully reproduces all the subtle nuances of your playing dynamics, from whisper-quiet to screaming loud. The onboard Tone control allows you to tailor the overall sound to your liking.

Well I bought this pedal after trying literally about 60 pedals at my guitar shop. It is extremely simple and yet, quite versatile. It provides a great variety of sounds and is very well built for it's price point

What do you especially like about this product?
It's orange? No, it is extremely simple to use: You can simply "dial-in" almost any distortion effect you can think of. It's simplicicty, versatility and the fact that it does not sound cheesy make it ideal for studio and stage usage.

What do you dislike about this product?
It is, in fact orange... Actually it could've used a middle frequency control (although that would have made it more complicated). You will more than likely need to purchase the adapter as this unit will devour you batteries if you leave the input cord in. So while you are not using it it could fail on you. There is a usuful LED indicator (when the effect is engaged) that iwll let you know if you need to change the battery.
