Boss DS-1 LTD., Boss Quality, Cool Paint Job

By Steve

Comments about Boss DS-1 Limited Edition Black Distortion Pedal:

Unlike many guitarists, I actually like the Boss DS-1. The stock, current DS-1 sounds good with my guitar and amp. The DS-1 Limited Edition Black pedal features the same guts and sound as the current Taiwanese-made DS-1, but with a cool paint job. If you're a Boss hater and/or pedal snob you probably won't like it. If you're looking for the DS-1 sound but don't want to pay a premium for the paint job, then buy a used DS-1 and save some money. I love Boss pedals and own quite a few, so this purchase was a no brainer for me.

    Comments about Boss DS-1 Limited Edition Black Distortion Pedal:

    Great pedal, love the new color.
    And this Limited 'Guitar Center-Edition' is very special; I even ordered 2 of them!
    Quick delivery, too bad GC won't ship to Europe.
    Luckily a friend who went to the USA could bring me the 2 pedals to Europe.
    Thanks Guitar Center!

        This pedal is AMAZING! I got it for Christmas and I have been non stop using it! The pedal has a great range from muffled distortion to clean and clear. It's my first Distortion pedal, and I'm impressed! The price is well worth it. It even sounds good together with my Flanger pedal.

          Great for a starter distortion pedal. Nothing new or exciting, small old DS-1. With some fairely easy mods it can be turned into a great pedal though.
