Boss DS-1 Distortion
Boss DS-1 Distortion
Distortion Pedal@+The BOSS DS 1 is already a classic among distortion pedals. Compared to the legendary overdrive pedals from BOSS, it provides considerably rougher and more aggressive distortion, which is clearly oriented towards the stack sound of British amps and further away from the rather toneless fuzz sound of older distortions. DS1 is certainly good tip for fans of a harder pace. With level, distortion and tone controls one can naturally create tamer sounds. And the stability and reliability of DSP effects - there's no need to mention it.@+@+
  • Hard distortion effect for guitar and keyboard
  • Reproduces faithfully all the subtle nuances of the dynamics at any volume
  • Controls: Level, Distortion & Tone

Boss BD-2 Overdrive

That will be a relief for your neighbours. @+@+*Back to the essentials*@+@+If a no-frills, earthy blues and rock sound is desired, you've come to the right place with the BD-2 Blues Driver. Slight distortion, fat overdrive and soft, silky sustain. The distortion levels can be set with Gain. The setting range covers slightly distorted to the hardest overdrive. Tone Control allows you to set a variety of classic sounds. Overall Level enables the adjustment of overall volume, regardless of the distortion. @+
