The BOSS DS-1X Distortion pedal completely redefines the distortion stompbox with new levels of dynamic response and clarity. Get tight response on the low strings and fat, singing tones on the highest notes—no matter where you play on the neck, even at the highest gain settings—plus exceptional definition when playing two or more notes at a time. The sound is never muddy or boomy, while the smooth, natural presence ensures that you always cut through without harshness or nasal overtones.
With the DS-1X, your distortion tone feels and sounds “dialed in” the instant you turn it on, for a playing experience that’s both effortless and inspiring.
