Boss DS-1W Waza Craft

Much ballyhooed, the DS-1 is a classic, bestselling, compact distortion pedal from Boss and it has finally received the Waza treatment with upgraded components plus an added custom mode. Boss' DS-1W has been outfitted with high quality, discrete, analog components and a recently upgraded two-stage circuit with both transistor and op-amp gain stages. Two modes on the DS-1W make it incredibly versatile while staying true to the original 1978 circuitry. In the Standard mode, you get, well, the original tight distortion sound, while the Custom mode is fatter, has more midrange, and with higher headroom along with increased sensitivity for dynamic playing. As with all Waza Craft pedals, a premium buffer is included to keep your signal crispy. Add the sound that's heard across countless recordings to your signal chain and stand out with the extra care that has been given by gripping a Boss DS-1W.
