Rock Hard - We have eliminated all the treble buzz and what's left is a great distortion! We have been tweaking with the DS-1 for many years trying to make is sound better. We stray from the normal modding avenues and try something a little different. The result is the DS-1 Rock Hard. We've taken the 80's metal out of the pedal and made it a sweet tone machine. Fat sound, well controlled top end, a good midrange and no more fizzy distortion. We've also moved away from using LED's for clipping with this mod and use transistors instead. The result is an amazing sounding pedal with a '70's hard rock edge.

True Bypass Options:
3PDT Bypass - Installs a 3PDT switch in the footpad of the pedal. Requires drilling a hole in the pedals footpad.
Silent Step - Microcontroller/Relay bypass that uses the original Boss switch to actuate the relay. No switch holes are drilled for this option. The Silent Step offers a few other features over the Parasite. See the Silent Step for more info.
Parasite - Relay bypass that uses the original Boss switch to actuate the relay. No switch holes are drilled for this option. The Parasite uses the Boss FET switching circuit to flip the relay rather than a microcontroller. See the Parasite for more info.
