Introducing the Boss DS-1W, a special edition Waza Craft pedal that offers the ultimate BOSS tone experience. Based on the legendary orange DS-1, this classic BOSS distortion has been enhanced with Waza craftsmanship and a newly revised two-stage gain circuit with discrete analog components. The DS-1W offers expanded range and versatility, making it an excellent addition to any guitarist's pedalboard.

The DS-1W delivers the authentic sound of the original DS-1 in Standard mode, featuring a versatile tone control that affects low and high frequencies. You can precisely dial in the sound for any application, from sharp rhythms to searing solos. The Custom mode, on the other hand, offers a bold new sound that takes the unmistakable DS-1 character to the next level. With a thick, mid-focused character, Custom mode provides more fatness and cut, making your sound stand out in the mix. The available level has been increased by 6 dB, providing a wider range of gain boost for driving amps and pedals.

The DS-1 has been the go-to distortion pedal for leading players in hard rock, metal, grunge, and fusion genres for over four-plus decades. Its hard-edged attack and smooth sustain have made it the best-selling compact effect to date, and its distinctive tone is behind the signature sounds of a long list of rock and alternative icons. With the DS-1W, BOSS has taken this legendary stomp to the next level, providing even more tonal range and versatility.
