OK, I bought a Boss DS-1 pedal

  1. The thing is, whenever i use it, it doesn't sound like a bass, it sounds like a guitar. I know about Boss OBD-3, and I know that's made specifically for bass. Is the DS-1 for guitar, bass, or both?

  3. if it's boss, it's made for guitar unless the name specifically implies otherwise. i had the same impression of the ODB-3, though. Joris told me it sounds a lot better with an active instrument, with plenty of bass dialed in. and i believe pretty much anything that Joris says, he's a smart guy.

    I have this Boss SD-1 I got for about $25 that I often use with my MM Sterling (it's active by the way). It sounds REALLY good on the D and G, and sounds decent on the A and E. I guess the tone knob gives more control?
  5. Damn. I'll have to return it, I guess. I don't really like it anyway.
