Defining a new sound that has provided players with a hard edged attack and smooth sustain, guitarists of all genres fell in love with it from the startThe DS-1 tone is behind the signature sounds of numerous rock legends, and is ready to fuel your own signature sound today.

Amazing Sound

You can use this pedal as a subtle tone or volume boost by dialing the distortion back, or crank it right up for some seriously bone crunching riffs. The DS-1 can be used for a wide range of genresproviding super smooth growls, harsh Grunge tones or high gain Southern Rock, all at the twist of a dial.

Easy to Use and No Fuse

The simple controls allow you to dial in your perfect tone within seconds. You have a Tone, Level and a DIST (distortion) knob and that’s it - easy! The Tone function allows you to dial in a more treble based sound or boost the bass frequencies, whilst the Level function provides control over the volume of the pedal

Recessed Knobs Hardwearing Construction
