The classic Boss DS-1 Distortion pedal is one of those timeless pedals that has stood up to the competition, and remained on many players pedal boards due to it's incredible reliability and very dynamic distortion tones. It provides a harder distortion effect than overdrive pedals and is perfect for guitar as well as other instruments. Instead of toneless, fuzzy distortion, the DS1 faithfully reproduces all the subtle nuances of dynamic performance - at any volume, even when the distortion is up at full.

The range of tones you can get from the DS-1 Boss Compact Pedal make it incredibly versatile. The available distortion tones start from lighter crunchy sounds (think blues and rock), but go all the way to heavier sounds that are perfect for metal. Some people use this pedal as a booster/extra distortion pedal for the most extreme lead tones and powerful solos. The increased sustain and feedback you can get by cranking up the DS-1 into your drive channel works well on stage, making sure you are in control of those effects when you need them.

If you are looking for a simple to use, workhorse distortion pedal, the Boss DS-1 is the perfect choice. There is simply no other distortion pedal that has been so widely used and remained popular for such a long time. The (not so) secret ingredients: great distortion sounds, rugged design and excellent value for money.
