Features That Define a Classic
The BOSS DS-1 Distortion is renowned for its legendary tones, embraced by guitarists spanning diverse musical genres. It offers a hard-edged attack that remains clear even at maximum distortion settings, making it ideal for blistering solos and powerful rhythms. Additionally, the DS-1 excels as a booster when dialed down to lower distortion settings. Its unique tone control provides a wide range of sound shaping possibilities, and perhaps most notably, it doesn't mask the unique characteristics of different guitars, pickups, and playing styles. Plus, simply turning down your guitar's volume cleans up the tone without sacrificing clarity.
Before the DS-1, distortion pedals often produced harsh, buzzy tones and muddied sound at high gain settings. BOSS engineers changed the game by developing a distinct distortion circuit for the DS-1, which delivers tight, hard-edged gain with rich harmonics while preserving the nuances of different guitars and playing techniques. This innovation had a profound impact on hard rock, metal, and punk styles that flourished in the '70s and '80s, and its influence continues through the generations. Whether you're chasing classic rock tones or forging your own path, the DS-1 Distortion stands ready to unleash its signature sound.
This pedal works nicely as intended and is in very good condition, exhibiting only very light external wear and has had velcro applied to the bottom as can be seen in photos. Box and manual are included.
