do you have a fresh battery in there or just whatever was left in there from the store? the DS-1 should add a noticeable amount of fuzz on your tone.

Yeh I changed the battery, and yes there is fuzz, but it's very weak and i'm really disappointed.

you still have the receipt?

you're the first person i've heard of being disappointed with the fuzz from a DS-1. are you running it into some sort of combo amp with a really nice gain channel? (like a midrange marshall or something)

Naw it's a Fender amp. Maybe it's my guitar, it has a super clean tone, the pedal just does really nothing. Idk maybe I should just get a different pedal. Maybe a metal distortion one?

Maybe you should have gotten a fender instead of a G&L...fenders have a muddier tone.

Yeh I really hate my guitar. I went to guitar center and played just about every guitar there, the ones I liked most were the Fender Jaguar with dual humbuckers, the Epiphone SG (which strangely enough sounds better than the Gibson), and the Epiphone dot, so one of those will be my next guitar after I sell my G&L on ebay or something.

Epiphone bodys actually sound better for some reason...but Gibson's pick ups are superior to Epiphone's...

Boss are a generic brand...and their distortion is the worst offender

electro-harmonix are the best mainstream pedal brand ive encountered
if you've got the cash go for a zvex box of rock or some beautiful (and hugely expensive) boutique thing

but the Big Muff is brilliant and gives you a way more interesting sound than the ds-1 ever could (ive had both) also way more grind.
there is no reason you're g&L cant be a filth beast

What was the name of that brand you really like? I remember you were saving money to buy one of those guitars on ebay. I can't remember the brand though, are those any good?
