BOSS DS-1X Distortion

The next generation of distortion pedals.

One of the most common guitar pedal effect, if not the most common, is the distortion pedal. We guitar players simply love that roaring shredding sound and can't get enough of it. But every guitar player knows, while the distortion pedal sounds great on singular notes and some chords or specific pickup settings, it may sound not so good on other notes combinations and pickup settings. We lived with that happily so far since we knew no better, but now there is a way to enjoy it all, it's called the BOSS DS-1X.

Unlike a traditional gain pedal, the DS-1X is a digital pedal, powered by BOSS' innovative Multi-Dimensional Processor (MDP). In other words, the pedal analyses your playing in real time and shapes the distortion sound to fit to it. The result is a clear and tight distortion across the entire guitar scale that fits to whatever it is you play, chords or single notes. Thanks to is being a digital pedal, the BOSS DS-1X also has a lower ground noise which is not the case with most distortion pedals. As to how good it sounds in comparison to analog distortions we leave it for you to judge. Just put it against any of the analog pedals offered on TonePedia, set both to 'blind mode' and make your call.
