Boss DS-1W

For over four decades, the BOSS DS-1 has been a staple in the world of guitar effects, pioneering the high-gain sound and defining distortion as we know it. Now, BOSS proudly introduces the DS-1W Waza Craft Distortion, a special edition pedal that takes this iconic classic to a whole new level of tone and versatility. Get ready to experience distortion like never before, finely crafted for the modern musician.

Waza Craftsmanship: Elevating the Iconic DS-1

The DS-1W is a testament to BOSS's commitment to superior tone and performance. This special edition Waza Craft pedal combines the timeless look and character of the original DS-1 with a meticulously revised discrete all-analog circuit. The result? A pedal that not only captures the classic DS-1 sound but also offers an expanded range and unprecedented versatility.

Two Distinctive Modes, Infinite Possibilities

Experience the DS-1W in two distinct modes that redefine what's possible. In Standard mode, you'll embrace the authentic sound of the original DS-1, renowned for its tight, hard-edged tone and singing sustain. The versatile tone control lets you fine-tune your sound, from sharp rhythms to blistering solos, and everything in between.

Switch to Custom mode, and you'll unlock a rich, fat, and dynamic distortion voice that retains the unmistakable DS-1 edge while taking it to a new dimension. With increased level and input sensitivity, you can explore a wide spectrum of distortion colors, all responsive to your picking dynamics and volume control adjustments.

Waza Craft: Where Art Meets Tone

BOSS's dedication to superior tone shines through in the Waza Craft series, where the art of craftsmanship meets exceptional tone. Carefully selected analog components, refined circuitry, and meticulous attention to detail define these special edition pedals. In Japan, "Waza" represents art and technique, and the DS-1W proudly carries this symbol, signifying the pinnacle of BOSS design and craftsmanship.
