    If you can buy a "made in Japan" Boss, do it ! The DS1 is fantastic.

    This guy is the sound. Really diggin the feedback harmonics. I’m used to boost pedals and working the volume knob. So I really have to adjust the volume of my amp while the band is kicking then work backwards with my volume knob. The pedal doesn’t push much air through the speakers. Once the amp is adjusted it’s all good though!

    The original Boss DS-1 is by far the best sounding out of all the DS-1 pedals I've ever owned, which has been many. Vintage tone what out the nasally voice like the later versions.
