Boss DS-1 Distortion Pedal
Boss DS-1 Product Overview by GAK
The Boss DS-1 Distortion is the true industry standard pedal. Since its introduction in 1978, the DS-1 has found itself at the feet of some true guitar legends such as Kurt Cobain and Joe Satriani.
Whether you're using the DS-1 pedal to boost your distortion channel for solos or as pure distortion on a clean amp, you can't go wrong. The TONE knob gives you a spectrum of sounds from dark and crunchy to sharp and crisp distortion, while the DIST knob can take the DS-1 anywhere from light overdrive to out-of-control mayhem.
Because it's a Boss, you know this little pedal is built like a tank.

You cannot go wrong with Boss pedals, easy to use, great range of sounds and totally bomb proof.
Great value for a Boss product. Have been able to get some nice tones out of it.
