Absolutely! Here it is: Boss DS-1 modded for bass CLIP included. - TalkBass Forums

The full and final list of what he did is on post #30 on page 2.

Okay, so I did all the suggested mods from the above link tonight except D5, I was having trouble with it, so I just kept it. It still sounds good, but I'll have to see if I gained any more low end this Sunday, or whenever we practice this week!

One way to check if you have the ability to run a line in and out of your computer is to download some free RTA (Techno-geek speak for "realtime audio analyzer") software. It will send pink noise (the full human audible spectrum from 20hz to 20khz at the same volume; sounds just like static to the untrained ear) out and give a readout of what it receives through the computer's return. It will give you a good idea of the frequency curve of your pedal and you can see if it does roll off the lows.

Not a bad idea I'll have to check that out. I have a suspicion that I didn't gain much low end. Maybe a little. I'll have to see what else I can do if the sound isn't satisfactory.

You could always try putting the DS-1 in a blender, too. That's an easy way to gain a lot of low end.

Explain please? I'm new to effects and such. I that where you mix a clean signal and distorted signal? And how much would something like that be?

Best. Comment. Ever.

What he means is break/throw away/get rid of the pedal to gain low end.

Or... you could really blend the dry signal with the distorted signal in a parallel loop to get back some low end...

Oh jeez! What a n00b i am! I seem to never read things the way they were intended, I always pick the most obscure way to read things!

'Parallel loop' ....can you explain this witchcraft? haha. How does one going about making your mysterious 'parallel loop'? Because that sounds like something I could really use!

You could have someone build one for you... I don't really know how to make one myself and split/buffer the signal right (though, I can't imagine it's that complicated as far as pedal building goes).

A parallel loop could basically blend an effects loop with an unaffected signal, probably most effective with a blend knob and a level knob.

But yeah, I'd probably go ask S.B. Nichols to build me one if I wanted one.

Jon...

Crazy idea...no idea if it would work...

Could you take a Y-splitter to split the signal before the DS-1 and another Y-splitter to recombine it afterwards?

I don't see why not... that would probably be my ghetto-rig solution (I've heard of Y-splitting working on lots of effects). But you would probably be definitely dealing with some serious volume disparities, and no easy way to change the blend.

But hey, might work perfect, too. Who knows.

@Thesteve:

Y-cables sort of work, but not well at all. You'll run into phasing problems and more apparent volume drop with a passive splitter setup like that.

@Ethan:

Parallel blending is what it sounds like; two signals split, run parallel to one another and blended back together. A blender combines the dirty signal with the original clean signal. A little bit of clean blend goes a long way towards adding low end.
