Tone Freq's TONE TIP: Boss DS-1 vs DS-1 Ultra Keeley Electronics Mod

Mods are a GOOD THING! Last month Jaux posted his review of Keeley Electronics DS-1 Ultra mod and I wanted to find a video to demo the two pedals side by side. I am HUGE fan of Keeley’s work, owning most of his most popular mods and pedals. The video link below clearly shows the differences. Even with laptop speakers the difference in tone is very noticeable. Toward the end of the clip the toggle is engaged switching from the “Seeing Eye” mod for high-gain to the second LED stage giving it more bottom-end richness. No matter the genre of music the Keeley DS-1 Ultra mod is a must-have for fans of great distortion tone!

Thanks to McKinoza for posting his shootout on YouTube.
