BOSS DS-1-4A overview

  • 1Description

To commemorate the 40th anniversary of its compact series pedals, BOSS has released this limited-edition DS-1 Distortion Pedal, which updates the classic stompbox by giving it a new a look, with its black body, gold lettering, and gold-capped knobs. It also features a vintage silver thumbscrew holding the battery compartment in place. The pedal comes in a box with a special 40th anniversary logo, and is available for one year only: 2017.

The pedal itself provides a hard-edged tone with a smooth sustain and variable tone. It can be used for guitar or keyboards, and provides Distortion, Level, and Tone controls to tailor the overall sound.

    BOSS DS-1-4A reviews

    DS-1 Distortion Pedal (40th Anniversary, Limited Edition) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from THE Black Box ! i've bought roland pedals since the 1980s and they all still work. never bought the orange as my amp at the time had great distortion channel. however...i'm always looking for new sounds. this elegant little box loves my marshall vintage modern and well as strat and paul. and b&h undercut every other store.
