Boss DS-1X Distortion Pedal for sale

The Boss DS-1X is a premium version of the DS-1 that produces a much more aggressive distortion. The DS-X1 has a lot more gain than the DS-1, plus the 1X sounds superb at both low and high-gain settings.

This pedal is built with classic Boss features like a durable cast-metal case, easy-access battery compartment, non-slip rubber rear and switch surfaces, silent FET switching, recessed knobs, nine-volt adaptor jack and an on/off LED that doubles as a battery-power indicator.  

The DS-1X features an EQ to help the player dial-in just the right tone by boosting the bass and treble frequencies well past the spectrum of most amplifiers. And even all the way up, the guitar's tone doesn't get noisy or muddy. This little metallic orange stompbox delivers fat and chunky distortion that simply rocks.  

This pedal is second hand, in Very Good Condition, and it sounds great. This pedal does not come with its original box, but a PDF of the user manual can be provided upon request. If you have any questions about this Boss DS-1X, please send me a message.
