THE ONE DISTORTION TO RULE THEM ALL

The DS-1 Distortion is a true icon in the world of guitar effects. Introduced in 1978, BOSS’s first distortion pedal defined a bold new sound, delivering hard-edged attack and smooth sustain that’s been a staple of players for generations. The DS-1 is the top-selling BOSS compact pedal ever, and its original, unchanged design continues to inspire the creation of great music everywhere.

The classic DS-1 tone is behind the signature sounds of numerous rock legends, and is ready to fuel your own signature sound today. Capable of producing a wide range of rock tones, the DS-1 Distortion is the perfect addition to any musician's setup. Its unique combination of hard-edged attack and smooth sustain lets you develop unique sounds that stand out in any mix.

  • Legendary distortion used by guitarists everywhere since 1978
