    DS1 where have you been all my life? Oh yeah in the back of a drawer...

    Picked up one a while back really cheap. I don't mind it. As m&d say it needs an amp that's being pushed. I've also found it is good to stack with another dirt box. I tend to put it further up the signal chain. That's said it's not on my board. There are better pedals out there. I'm planning...

    Tips for distorting Seabed's repeats?

    I'd like to have the repeats distorted on the Seabed delay (deep blue delay). I've been told using a pair of anti-parrallel diodes from the repeats pot wiper to ground will distort the signal. Are there any other mods I could try? Cheers
