Boss DS-1 Distortion

The Boss DS-1 Distortion is a king among distortion pedals and is one of the most popular effects units of all time.

Unveiled in 1978 following the launch of Boss’s iconic compact pedal series the previous year, the flexible DS-1 Distortion set a standard for all that followed.

Great for rhythm and lead sounds, this Boss classic features three simple controls – tone, level and distortion – with which to dial in your perfect settings.

Known for its edgy voice, the DS-1 Distortion allows electric guitar players to cut through a band mix. Whether on stage or in the studio, this Boss staple can be relied on for world class tone every time.

Popular with beginners and pros alike, it’s a great pedal to have in the toolbox and is built to withstand decades of use.

Long sold with a five-year warranty, Boss pedals are famously tough and are frequently cited as modern classics (just ask Joe Satriani or Steve Vai!)
