Boss DS-1 Distortion Supreme Mod Kit for DS1
Boss DS-1 Distortion Supreme Mod Kit for DS1
Offered by Fromel Electronics
Price: $19.95

5.0 out of 5 stars Turned My Pedal Into A Beast, September 16, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This mod kit turned my DS-1 into a roaring beast. I bought a used pedal a couple of weeks ago and really didn't care for it at all. Kept getting volume drops during playing and would have to turn it off and back on to keep it from dropping during solos. Saw this kit and decided to give it a try. The description says 5 different mods you can do with the kit but the instruction sheet has 9. From simple to supreme. I did the supreme mod. I am not the greatest solderer so it took me about 2 hours to do it all. I started by checking every piece I replaced, plugged it into guitar/amp, to make sure it worked before moving ahead. Then it went to 2 pieces, then 3 and then 4. Really is time consuming when you try each replacement. Anyway I am not an electronics genius nor a professional soldering guru and I made it through the mod and surprisingly it works. The pedal is almost like another overdrive now with the distortion turned off. That is how much more volume this gave mine. Worthwhile project and if you have basic soldering skills and the equipment give it a shot. Your modded DS-1 will surprise you.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Plate, March 23, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The only reason I gave this a 4 is because of the shoddy chrome job. The only place this is chromed is in front of the pickup. The back part has zero chrome. I bought 2 and both are the same way. I've gotten imports with better workmanship. That being said that is the only reason I am displeased with the product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't Beat the Price and Quality, March 23, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Great price. I had to do a little filing to get this bridge to fit as some others. I am replacing everything (pots, pups, tuners, etc) on this guitar so I can't say the bridge is better than the one it came with. I am still waiting on some parts to put it back together. I know the bridge block is 3 times bigger and the Fender is way better in the quality department. I am sure it will be a vast improvement over the one that came with the guitar.

4.0 out of 5 stars Using to finish guitar neck, March 9, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is my first experience with product. I am using it to finish a guitar neck. It's a lot of work and I probably won't use it again. That being said it does leave an ok finish. It is just to time consuming for my particular needs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Neck Plate, March 9, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The plate is ok for me. I know others have said it is light metal but I don't think it really matters. The neck plate to me is more for protecting the guitar body then it is for anything else. The screws are what is securing the neck to the body not the neck plate.

5.0 out of 5 stars Planer Knifes, March 9, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I bought these to put in an old delta jointer. The shipping was fast and the blades look to be good quality. I haven't put them in my jointer yet but they look to be good quality. If my opinion changes once I mount them I will update this review. Also, purchasing these through amazon saves a few dollars than ordering from the ANK website.

These are just like the sleeves that come with the ridgid oscillating sander. I haven't used them yet but they look to be of good quality like most ridgid products.

These are good in my opinion. The finish is good and parts go together as they are suppose to. That being said I am not one of those guys who slings my guitar around so my review is only good for those type of players.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not a very good product, February 27, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Went through 4 of the 6 sheets and each one had runs using black ink only. 2 of 4 cannot be used they were so bad. Will not buy again.
