Keeley DS-1 Mod Service and Pedals!
21 Nottingham DR From Modest Mike's Mods Yep, we have someone local who does pedal mods. Modest Mike's Mods in Bella Vista is ready when you are. This listing is for mod service, and we also have some of these that are already modded.But let's look at the mod 1st!The DS-1 is popular. Almost all guitar players have seen or played one. Most of us were a little disappointed.It's a good pedal, it just needs a little help! We can take your DS-1 and mod it to the same specs! We use the same parts as in the Keeley Utra with Seeing Eye mod...no more, no less.Steve Vai uses 2 Ultra modded DS-1's that he got from Mr. Robert Keeley. Here is what Mr. Keeley himself has to say about this mod:"DS-Ultras are used by the guitar gods like Vai and Lynch.Our third Keeley mod is going on 8 yrs as the respected measure of tone! The DS-Ultra is our most popular modded distortion pedal!The Keeley Modded BOSS DS-1 Guitar Effect Offers the Finest in Marshall-Amp Tone-In-A-Box!!! Perfect for tones like A-C/DC, VAN HALEN, STEVE VAI. JUST TALKED WITH STEVE VAI at the NAMM Show this weekend (01/2005)! He told me that he still loves the couple of DS-Ultras he has!- Toggle Down - Adds another LED to the clipping circuit for a Large Fat Tone.- With the diode Toggle Switch you have the DS-ULTRA! Huge tube like tone, switch back and you have the classic Seeing Eye Mod (SEM) version of the pedal for high gain, tube like distortion!- Mods to correct the bass response and give you a fuller, more powerful tone. Perfect for Strats now with this mod!- Extra mods to increase the distortion range at max settings.- Toggle Switch Up - Our Standard Seeing Eye Mod.The Extra LED increases the volume output of the pedal a bit, great for using the DS-1 as a pre-amp to push the amp or to fine tune a low distortion sound on the unit. The way we engineer the mod, it has increased second order harmonics and tube-like qualities."I have a mod for my own custom mod. Let's call it "Mike's Custom mod."Without getting into major things like true bypass, or asymmetric/symmetric clipping switches, or double stacked opamps (we can go there if you want)...there are components that can be removed and/or replaced with better quality parts of different values to produce a number of differences, all good. These replacement resistors, capacitors, diodes, and led's are hand-picked in my personal DS-1 to tame the harshness of the clipping and the low end, increase the mids, and get rid of that "nasal sound." After this mod, my DS-1 sounds more like an overdrive/distortion pedal. Sounds sort of like the SD-1, but with more guts and low end. Comments from Modest Mike's customers: "Big improvement over my stock DS-1, very pleased. Made a good pedal great!" franks9484 "Awesome pedal now! Extremely fast service! Worth every penny! Thanks Mike!!!" gibson_fan "Get the pedal, send to Mike, rock happily ever after!!!"artle24 "Dear modestmikesmods,Pedal just showed up and it sounds great!!!

We will still do the work, run a twelve hour burn test, and have it on its way back home in three business days.
