* About:

The Boss DS-1 needs no introduction. It's the most iconic Boss pedal and one of the most recognisable pedals in existence. It's a right of passage to own a DS-1 as a guitarist, and nearly everyone has a story about theirs first.

Versions made before 1994 use the original Toshiba TA7136AP IC and are considered to be the best sounding pedals. This chip was changed twice more before settling on the current circuit produced today.
