The Boss DS-1 is a legendary pedal in the guitar world. It has been Bosss best-selling pedal for almost forty years, thanks in part to its rugged construction and alluring colour, but mostly due to the fact that is rocks. Delivering hard-edged attack and smooth sustain that can be dialled in using the three control-knobs to give the player the sound they are after. Whether the gain is cranked to the max, or lowered to act as more of a clean boost, the Boss DS-1 is a superb distortion pedal to add to any board.
