Introduced in 1978, the Boss DS-1 redefined the sound of distortion with its hard-edged attack and smooth sustain. The new DS-1W blends the look and character of the original pedal with an all-analog circuit, making it an excellent fit for players seeking a classic-sounding distortion stompbox.
The DS-1W offers two crushing distortion modes - standard and custom - that give it an extensive range of gritty, snarling sounds. In Standard mode, the DS-1W delivers that instantly recognizable DS-1 growl that can be fine-tuned with the tone control that simultaneously boosts and cuts each end of the frequency spectrum as the knob is turned. In Custom mode, the DS-1W churns out a thick, mids-focused distortion that cuts through the mix like a hot knife through butter. No matter what style of dirt you need, the DS-1W is more than capable of slinging it out and melting faces.
Precision-crafted in Japan, the Boss DS-1W Waza Craft Distortion is the perfect pedal for folks who want a timeless-sounding distortion with plenty of speaker-shredding tones on tap.
