          Comments about Boss DS-1 Distortion Stompbox Pedal:

          bought my DS-1 10 years ago. Many pedals today are obsessed with ultra high gain, which makes you sound anonymous. Here, you get distortion that begins with a mild crunch near to your clean signal, and moves to a searing sound. The tone knob goes from a dark thick sound to a bright, thinner and progressively less bassy one. My DS-1 is always in my rig and is my go-to lead sound. I use it with all of my guitars.
