The JHS Pedals DS-1 Synth Deluxe mod is the end-all-be-all DS-1 mod, with more options and better tone than you ever thought possible from this little orange box that takes up space in closets all over the world.
We start by upgrading many of the key components and add a three-way gain switch to choose between “Crunch”, “Boost”, and “High Gain” modes. Then we take it into uncharted territory and add three switches on the side that activate different “synth” modes that produce wild tones of fuzz, lo-fi overdrive, synth droning, octave distortion, ring modulation, and more! When any one of the switches on the left or right side of the DS-1 are engaged, just turn the drive knob up past 12 o’clock and start experimenting. We also switch the placement of the tone and volume knobs so that the pedal has a more traditional layout. Then we add an LED that lights up based on how you’re using the Synth Deluxe.
