    I saw a picture of a DS2 on Prince's board. I use an SD 1 and usually dont split hairs about tones.

    But, we cover a couple Prince songs and wonder if a DS2 would be worth getting, for kicks. It could totally be a pedal I would flip, or not. IDK.

    For instance, I recentlyr bought a wampler mini plexi drive and dont use it at all. The SD1 is just better.

    Thoughts?

    I supposed it would depend on how you are using your amp but I have just about always preferred a OD (SD1) pushing a crunchy amp over using a distortion pedal (DS2) into a semi-clean amp for gain. Try it out for yourself though and see what you prefer.

    I have a ds-2, and to my ears it's almost a fuzz.

    My amp is a clean platform. I do stack the sd 1 with a Euphoria for over the top solos though. Thats how I do my current tones for Prince songs.
