Manufacturer's ID: DS-1W

The classic BOSS distortion, enhanced with new tone possibilities through Waza craftsmanship. Introduced in 1978 among the earliest models in the BOSS compact series, the orange DS-1 redefined the sound of distortion and remains as influential today as ever.

Its hard-edged attack and smooth sustain have made it the best-selling compact effect to date, and its distinctive tone is behind the signature sounds of a long list of rock and alternative icons. With the DS-1W, this legendary stomp joins other BOSS classics in the Waza Craft series, fusing the look and character of the original with a newly revised discrete all-analog circuit for expanded range and versatility.


  • Special edition Waza Craft pedal for the ultimate BOSS tone experience
  • Newly revised two-stage gain circuit with discrete analog components
  • Standard mode delivers the legendary sound of the original DS-1
  • Custom mode provides fatter distortion tones with focused midrange and increased touch response
  • Versatile Tone knob provides wide-ranging frequency control fine-tuned for each mode
  • Two modes offer increased versatility when the pedal is used as a gain booster
  • Premium buffer for clean and clear tone when bypassed
  • BOSS five-year warranty

Overall Rating 5/5 (1 reviews)

I was hesitating about purchasing the DS 1w as I already have an 80s and a recent DS 1 but within minutes of plugging in I was glad I did, The c mode adds a bit of poke to the volume and the tone is fuller and at lower gain settings with the tone turned down it does a cracking ZZ Top La Grange impersonation.
