Boss DS-1 Distortion Pedal Reviews


Boss DS-1

When it comes to buying music equipment, I'm stuck to a low budget. Not everyone can afford the top range stuff! My guitar is very cheap, so cheap in fact, that I took the name badge off so nobody could tell what it was! The sound of it on it's own is something quite pathetic, but it's easy to fix.

As soon as I stomp on my DS-1 it's a whole new story. All it takes is a little twist of the tone and distortion knobs and you can find a whole range of tones, from a rich, warm tones that fill up the background for any song, to a tight grungey overdrive like distortion that pulls you up to the front.

The level knob is excellent for boosting your sound, you can turn it up to blast out those distorted parts, or turn it down to give a little subtlety to your sound, and it's volume not gain, so you don's lose the tone.

Like all boss compacts, the DS-1 will last. It's a solid little thing, mine is battered and bruised because I've had it so long, and it's still going strong, I couldn't break it if i tried. And although it can work with a 9v power supply, a cheap battery will last ages.

Simple, cheap, effective. I reccomend this pedal to anyone, no matter what your budget!

Price Matching

Dolphin Music brings you the best music gear at the best price. We are committed to superior customer service and have extensive product knowledge. However, in today’s market we may not always be aware of all the price fluctuations of the products we sell. So, we offer competitive price matching.

What prices we will match?

We will compare prices for new, direct from manufacturer items, excluding any add-ons, options, or other special features which may affect price.

The item must be new and must be the exact same make and model (ie, the same size, version, etc.).

The price you have found must be the Internet Retailer's regular, advertised price for a current and available item. The price you found cannot be a closeout, discontinued, blemished, year-end, inventory reduction, or any other type of advertised sale price.

Price Matching requests may not be combined with any other promotional discounts, specials or other price incentives.

Prices and price sources you have found which do not meet the above criteria or in which incomplete or inaccurate information is provided to us, will not be approved for our Price Match.
