BOSS DS-1 Distortion

BOSS DS-1 Distortion

From small venues to the biggest stadium stages, the BOSS DS-1 Distortion saw it all! 

Kurt Cobain had it, Satriani has it, and probably your neighbour too. The BOSS DS-1 is without a doubt one of the most famous distortion pedals out there. Since the late '70s and until today, this little orange pedal offers a compressed, British stack style distortion sound with an easy control layout - Distortion, Tone and Level. The BOSS DS-1 is not a subtle pedal but not brutal either, it retains its characteristics with most type of pickups and it is really a great pedal for beginners and pros alike.
