    ds-1 is very different sounding from death metal or metal zone.

    Boss MT2 would definitely give u a variety of tones(Well i am selling it coz i am more of an overdriven tone guy)

    Best would be to try them out at the nearby store .. If they are not available then at least see youtube videos and see how each of the above mentioned pedal sounds.. Everyone has different taste when it comes to sound...

    What kind of sound are you looking for?
    DS-1 = Classic Marshall Overdrive
    MT-2 = Marshall Extremely overdriven with lot more flexible EQ, more fuzzy

    DS-1 is good for overdriven to distorted sounds while MT-2 is just all out distortion, no milder overdrive.

    DS-1 for clear lead tones without much fuzz, 80s and early 90's rock/hard rock. AC/DC type crunchy overdrive to early Joe Sat type lead tones. Works well for heavy blues too.

    MT-2 for anything from Slash like heavy lead tones to very heavily distorted rhythm tones like In Flames. Has loads of sustain for solos but is a little more fuzzy and less cutting compared to DS-1. It will not clean up at all with volume. Can do little outside the Metal genre, but can get decent Metal tones though. More aimed at modern (extreme) metal sounds.

    Youtube is pretty good for demos.

    Let us know if you are looking for a paticular artist's tone...

    @GuitarPlayer729 - PMed u. Bajaao not available today. I think its holiday for them. And also MT2 is not the tone that i am looking for even though it may sound heavenly on my new Amp. Well you can send anyone in mumbai at my place to check out the pedal if you want. I will ship it thru Bluedart..DTDC or anyother u know..dont know which and how they work. Need to find out.

    have you looked into BSIAB from general guitar gadgets? if you are not in a rush and like DIY i wont mind mailing you the parts and a home etched pcb or just head over to runoffgroove and explore other options ( i can pretty much send you any pcb from there with parts)
    seriously guys there should be more DIY happening here

    easiest?? r u kidding?

    I have visited this site earlier than ur post and found that i cant get those PCBs by any mean....
    yes, they do provide the circuit diagram but the basic requirement is that PCB...

    I have circuit diagrams of Boss DS-1, DS-2, OD-1, MT-2, MXR Distortion Plus and many more....(may be stickies can be made with them) but making them on a plain PCB is risky + untrustworthy + time eating + harassing +......bla bla bla

    I hope unkle have PCBs with their schematics :)

    go to their "FX Kits" section, they provide everything needed in the kit.
