Boss DS-1W Waza Craft Distortion Pedal
The classic Boss distortion, enhanced with Waza Craftsmanship!
The Boss DS-1 Distortion is a true icon of the stompbox world. Introduced in 1978, Boss' first distortion pedal defined a bold new sound, delivering hard-edged attack and smooth sustain that’s been a staple of players for generations. To this day, the DS-1 is Boss' best selling compact pedal ever, and is the latest in the range to get the legendary Waza Craft treatment! Introducing the DS-1W Waza Craft!
In true Waza Craft fashion, the DS-1W blends the look and character of the original with a newly revised discrete all-analogue circuit for expanded range and versatility. With two different modes on hand, you can seamlessly switch between the Standard DS-1 circuit and the new Custom mode, which boasts a fatter distortion with a more focussed mid-range.
True to the original, the DS-1W features controls for Tone, Level and Distortion, making it incredibly simple to dial in a great sounding mid to high-gain distortion. The Tone knob is powerful too! Turning the knob clockwise increases high frequencies whilst cutting lows, and turning it anti-clockwise has the opposite effect. Whether you're a fan of Hard Rock, Heavy Metal or Punk, the DS-1W is filled to the brim with genre-defining distortion sounds. All you need to do is strap in and enjoy the ride!
