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.

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!

Bland generic distortion
It's a Boss. It just won't die.
Your general opinion of this product.
I have owned one for years. I plug it in once in awhile to remind myself how much it sucks. This pedal has been sold for $39.00 for ever. It wasn't worth it then. It's not worth the higher price now.
It will suck the tone out of guitars that sound awesome thru almost any other distortion pedal.

Great For Beginners
This pedal was made pretty week, its very durable but the battery life is very short. So if you get this your also going to want to buy a charger cord as well.
Its very durable, its been thrown around a lot going from place to place and still works perfectly.
Your general opinion of this product.
I got this pedal because I play electric guitar with a band, its a pretty good pedal you just have to know what kind of sound you want but overall for the price its worth it.
The sound changes sometimes when the battery starts to die, so if that happens when your on stage its not the easiest to adjust the tone then.
The tone was nice, it really depends on what kind of music you play. If your looking for a hard rock distortion this might not be for you, but if you want distortion without being too edgy then this is for you.
Its a very nice looking pedal, with a very crisp look and a paint job that looks the same today as when I took it out of the box.
It worked right when I took it out of the box, so I could play with it right away.
