The DS-1 Distortion was introduced in 1978 as part of the second wave of compact pedal releases. Its hard-edged attack and smooth sustain was an instant success among guitarists, going on to fuel the signature sounds of numerous rock legends. The DS-1 has enjoyed such enduring popularity that it's remained in the lineup to this day, outselling every other BOSS pedal to date.
The DS-1-4A comes in a special box with the BOSS 40th anniversary logo, and will be available in 2017 only.
