Manufacturer's ID: BOSSDS1
What we say:BOSS’s colourful stomp boxes are the most recognisable pedal range in existence. For over 40 years, guitarists from bedrooms to stadiums have put their boot down on a BOSS effect to transform their sound. Several models have passed into guitar legend and early examples can fetch extremely high prices. Happily, BOSS have maintained their stellar reputation for world-class effects in bomb-proof casing with their current range and have fended off the imitators for decades to remain the pre-eminent single pedal effects manufacturer in the business. If there’s an effect for guitar (or bass, vocals, keys…be creative!) then you can bet BOSS have a pedal of it in their range or even invented it outright! Every guitar player should get to experience the joy of selecting a pedal from BOSS’s exhaustive roster, plugging it in and unleashing their wildest sonic dreams.
Without doubt BOSS's most popular compact effect, the DS-1 has been the One Pedal To Rule Them All since it's inception in 1978. From it's distinctive orange box form to it's abrasive clipping and gain structure, the DS-1 is an undisputed classic.
With just three simple controls - Tone, Level and Distortion - you can dial up a multitude of dirty sounds from tight and grainy right through to smooth sizzle with a heap of sustain. It's also one of the most affordable BOSS pedals on the market and with that you still get all of the build quality and reliability that millions of players have come to expect from BOSS. Legendary!
