The Boss DS-1 Distortion has been around since 1978, and has since graced the pedal boards of a wide range of players. From Punk and Grunge to Country and Jazz, there's no limit to the sounds this classic pedal has helped create over the years. Older DS-1s were made by Boss in Japan while modern production has been exported elsewhere in Asia. Earlier examples are rarer and somewhat more sought-after by purists.
