Case type Boss, sturdy but less well for Inrush foot because too much travel.
PSU 9v classic. € 40 bought used 2 years ago.
No problem setting, there is one that goes well, and a single. Otherwise, Intrets is that the settings are not only nuances, they are very effective for those who are still looking and still sound original.
So a single tone control is ok, it is between 11am and noon, is accurate because there is a space of 2 or 3 mm that moves its not bad. The rest is pretty ugly or a very special action, either acidic or too dark. Otherwise, good tuning, the distortion is far, far right, rapper, and dug quite playable.
the volume depends on the amp and guitar and the level of distortion can be strong without seeming rude default. For use with all it's a distortion without much flavor without too much character, the grain is fine enough, smooth, clinical, transistorized. In short, it's not great but it does it anyway for a laugh or rock FM home in varying styles.
I use it little, it is very typical 80's. I prefer the distortion / fuzz / OD that have character, reacting to the nuances that make a rattling or magnitude, a relief, a little juice. Here is fairly smooth and flat even if the power is there. It's a style that can love, but an acoustic point of view, dynamic, that means. Setting of 1 is not that bad but we know we can have much more in this style (DS1 boss for example).
Paid 40 euros hand, it is not worth more, it's almost the same price for the pleasure given. I bought it for the brand, but Tokai have me disappointed on this one then. So beware of versions of the TDS-1 if I believe other reviews! What puzzles me because the pedals were never really famous.
