Product Description

The Boss DS1 Distortion Effects Pedal delivers added sustain and distortion types that range from very soft to very hard.
With its level control, you can set the DS1 to match your volume level, or to get that boost when you go into a lead. Other controls are tone and Distortion (affects the amount of distortion).

The DS1 provides a harder distortion effect for guitar and keyboard sounds. Instead of toneless, fuzzy distortion, the DS1 faithfully reproduces all the subtle nuances of your playing dynamics, from whisper-quiet to screaming loud. The onboard TONE control allows you to tailor the overall sound to your liking.

Being new at the electric guitar, I needed something simple, yet effect to give me the rock sounds I was looking to produce. The Boss distortion pedal DID NOT dissapoint. It's simple to use and sounds great!! Perfect for the beginning rockstar!

Can’t go wrong
What is your opinion of this product?
The DS1 is one of my favorite distortion pedals. There are more versatile and tighter sounding pedals. I grew up with this sound and it still sounds great.

Pretty great pedal
What is your opinion of this product?
A great pedal for the price point it performs amazingly for the price. My only issue is the volume jump when it’s turned on but that isn’t that big of an issue.

Well worth the money and easy to use.
What is your opinion of this product?
It is easy to use. I’m happy with my purchase. The only thing that would make it better is if it came with a power supply so you didn’t have to use batteries.

i love this pedal
What is your opinion of this product?
This pedal sounds great using it with my 4 watt vox tube amp. The distortion is more clear with the pedal rather than just cranking up the amp for its natural overdriven. I get more gain with the pedal too.

Really Good!
What is your opinion of this product?
This isn't built to be versatile. It isn't built to be a super high gain death metal distortion. It's built to sound like a distortion channel on a decent tube amp, and it does that fantastically well! To my knowledge, this is Boss's cheapest effects pedal, and it's is a wonderfully good value! I expected it to sound really thin and harsh with my Mexican Fender Strat, but even those pickups sounded really good here! (If you can get over the noise; those pickups are dastardly noisy when driven!) My main guitar, a Super Deluxe FSR Telecaster with Fidel'tron humbuckers, is being worked on so I haven't had the pleasure of really putting this through its paces, but if it can make a Mexi Strat sound passable, imagine what it will do with my grown-up guitar!
