The DS-1 Distortion is a true icon in the world of guitar effects. Introduced in 1978, BOSS’s first distortion pedal defined a bold new sound, delivering hard-edged attack and smooth sustain that’s been a staple of players for generations. The DS-1 is the top-selling BOSS compact pedal ever, and its original, unchanged design continues to inspire the creation of great music everywhere. The classic DS-1 tone is behind the signature sounds of numerous rock legends, and is ready to fuel your own signature sound today.

Genre-Defining Distortion
Before the DS-1, most distortion pedals produced harsh, buzzy tones and muddy sound at high gain settings. In 1978, BOSS engineers changed all that by developing a unique distortion circuit for the DS-1 that produces tight, hard-edged gain with rich harmonics while retaining the unique characteristics of different guitars and playing techniques. Hard rock, metal, and punk styles began to flourish in the ’70s and ’80s, and the DS-1’s tone had a defining influence on these genres. That trend has endured through multiple generations, and players around the world continue to seek out the classic DS-1 sound.

Gain from Mild to Heavy
From its modest three-knob interface, many different sound colors can be coaxed from the DS-1. Its pioneering two-stage circuit incorporates both transistor and op-amp gain stages. This approach is critical to the DS-1’s characteristic low-frequency fullness, which

a tad megaphone like This pedal is cool. It is a great stack pedal I use a boss blues driver as my base tone, Then I put this as a solo boost. The boost is more transparent then a tube screamer drive pedal in this price range, however it still has a mid boost that is nice with single coil pickups. With humbuckers it sounds great but has a bit of an old radio quality that is not as transparent as I would like. This pedal as a base tone is a bit uninspiring. It almost sounds like generic rock drive. For the price is…

Classic pedal distortion My amp (Fender Blues Jr NOS) doesn’t have an overdrive channel, so I was looking for something to add to it to give it a dirty sound. Yes, I realize that distortion and overdrive aren’t quite the same thing, but I just wanted a different sound to come out of the amp. This pedal fits the bill. It isn’t one of those expensive, boutique pedals, nor does it try to be. It’s a basic distortion pedal with three settings (tone, level, distortion). It’s been used over the years by many, many guitar…

Included accessories are cheap and nasty, but still worth the extra $10 The pictures show cables and such that are much higher quality than what actually comes with this kit. That being said, they still work fine, and it’s nice to have and extra instrument cable and patch cable. The pics are Fender Mediums, not a variety.The instrument cable is the type with a metal spring for strain relief, and they are rebuildable if they fail, unlike many cheap cables. The patch cable is of the cheap, floppy type you can’t fix if it breaks, however.As for…
