This one was manufactured in Taiwan, November 2005. Works 100% as new. Two distortions in one: Mode 1 is very much like the classic DS-1 pedal, Mode 2 is a thicker, more midrange-focused distortion. Pretty versatile for a $45 used pedal! Good tones, no crazy noises or overthetop hissing, lots of adjustability. I'm looking for $45 shipped on this one. Paypal is fine. No trades. Please note, my feedback is 100% for the past year; the one negative from over a year ago was from a guy experimenting with power supplies for a vintage pedal he bought from me. He fried the insides then complained of a "squealing." Duh.... Anyway, this DS2 is in perfect working order with either a 9v battery or standard Boss-type power supply or pedalboard power. Any questions, just ask. Thanks!
