The BOSS DS-1W Waza Craft guitar distortion pedal blends the look and character of the original DS1 with a newly revised discrete all-analog circuit for expanded range and versatility.

The DS1W, with two modes and a discrete all-analog circuit design, expands the DS1 experience for a broader range of styles and applications. In Standard mode, you get the tight, hard-edged tone and singing sustain of the original pedal, and Custom mode takes the DS-1 sound character to a new level.

Custom mode presents a unique new distortion voice while retaining the DS-1 personality and edge. A thick, mid-focused character provides more fatness and cut to make your sound stand out, while the tone control maximizes the mode’s richness and presence.

The available volume level has been increased by 6 dB, providing a wider range of gain boost for driving amps and other distortion or overdrive pedals. With more input sensitivity, you can conjure up all sorts of distortion colors with picking dynamics and volume control adjustments on the guitar. Just let your creative juices flow!

When setting up your guitar effects pedal board, the DS-1W distortion pedal should be first in line, unless you're also using a compressor or octave pedal. The BOSS distortion pedal partners well with other guitar pedals and it's the base upon which other sounds are built.

The new analog circuit in the BOSS DS-1W Waza Craft distortion pedal gives you a broader range of subtle tones with higher gain settings without any harshness. The original DS1 was probably the default distortion pedal for most guitarists, but now its new big brother is sure to take the lead. Contact Andy's and order yours today.
