Definitely an improvement over the stock DS-1, this thing has a pretty thick high-saturation distortion with a loads of sustain, definitely late 80s/early 90s JCM 900 territory. Not noisy at all in the higher gain settings, but I found the high-end a little too prominent. Roll off the volume and it cleans up fairly well. Anything past 12 on the gain knob is practically metal territory, but again, it surprised me how it didn't get noisy at all and the distortion remained fairly manageable. Great pedal overall that's fairly overlooked, not too many medium gain distortion pedals around out there any more either, so I recommend getting one to try.

Simple yet effective! And Even though it doesn't have a mid knob it's still easy to get that "mid scoop" sound. It has a good range between high punchy country tones to heavier rock tones. Great for hard rock!
