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.

Boss has been making some of the best stomp box pedals for decades and the DS -1 is one that every guitarist should have on hand for that little extra something. Adds the right amount of extra distortion while maintaining the amps original tone. As with all my other orders AMS delivered in excellent and professional fashion. A+

Product Review

What can I say about this pedal that you dont already know? BOSS puts out fantastic pedals and the DS-1 is no exception. It does what it is is supposed to do, and it does it well. and with the metal case, it will stay up to all the abuse you an give it.

The original, still the best!!

Product Review

Had one in '78 when I was a teen, just bought one for my 14 year old to be his first pedal. Pedal CATCHS a lot of flack by users who don't use correctly. Been on my boards for 30 years I use for classic rock and boss mt2 for metal and thrash. Boss has always been the best makers of all pedals, never used any other. You won't be disappointed with this pedal...

Classic tone

Product Review

All of the classic distortion tones you’ve heard for forty years and still built like a tank. Should be on everyone’s pedalboard.

Classic distortion

Product Review

It's hard to review this seeing as it is in the top ten of many lists for distortion pedals. It's hard to find used. This has the classic sounds for heavy metal, thrash, etc. Add a good chorus/flange and it's amazing

Can’t go wrong

Product Review

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.
