The DS-1, Boss' very first distortion unit, will provide you with a hard-edged distortion effect for guitar and keyboard sounds. Unlike other distortion pedals, the DS-1 maintains its tone while still providing you with a deep and crispy distortion. The DS-1 accurately responds to all the subtle nuances of your picking and playing dynamics, from a quiet whisper to ear-spitting loud. The onboard TONE control allows you to tailor the overall sound to your liking.

I think the distortion peddle helps me a lot trying to see what tone best suits my playing and opens up more creative flow for me.

Way too maligned, but a solid and tested distortion pedal

I have been eyeing a dedicated Distortion pedal for quite some time and went with the tried and true Boss DS-1; solidly built with clean, impactful distortion that doesn't sound overly muddled. Recommended...

I use this Distortion when I need a little extra kick on my distortion, I mostly use a Super Overdrive which is a lighter version of distortion, great combination.

I lost my first one during one of our gig. I'm kind off an old school dude that never relies on many guitar effects. This BOSS DS-1 Distortion really works well for me. I owned a Gibson Les Paul Studio, two Rickenbackers, Tele, Strato, PRS SE 24 and three acoustic/electric guitars. I only used this DS-1 Distortion to all my electric guitars. Kudos to BOSS.

DS-1 review

When I play guitar live, I like a simple classic rock distortion. This was the first and only distortion pedal I've ever bought, and fell zero need whatsoever to buy or use another one. The tone is perfect for what I want out of a distorted guitar...not overly processed sounding like many digital effect pedals. Just a pure crunchy powerful distortion.
