    SOUND QUALITY

    The ds1 possde a range of quite tense gain. the premir emoiti we are on a big overdrive dj not mla MUSCL. Ms. Adi zero it gives a little.

    But to appreciate the full sonority of the model, totu depends on the amp. On a transistor it will be very flashy and cool. on a round lamp course. It is a case of school this pedal. On or opinions partags.

    For me, uses a jcm 900, it gives its full potential in tone and gain around mid race. Between 10 am and 14h is the best. The grain is dfini with a small burr on the treble that gives it its charm and all its horror as tastes.

    It's pretty Ralant, incisive, and "fuzzy" a little bit on levs gain rates.
    The tonality is to be dose with lgert because it changes all the color, for example, it has substance loses its corp and becomes almost unusable. A zero is completely touf.

    All in all mediums but are hollowed out well in the mix, the output level is pretty straightforward, without being a clean boost.

    -----

    The best of the best is the change ds1. Once sifts electronic levels it reveals a hidden potential well above the class with its cousin, the design proco rat for example.

    It is a good pedal overall. It has a color that we can fall in love.

    I primarily accuracy of all I have a very transistor any amp (I bought a pack with my guitar ...) So perhaps this pedal sound correct with tube amp in a room with perfect acoustics, but at home, on my amp, and even playing with a Gibson SG, it's just devastating. The overdrive of my amp rotten makes a thousand times better (but there's no footswitch so ...) In short, made noise is very dirty, you could rub your guitar against a wall cr worse instead of playing mdiator has not change as the sound is dnatur and that, whatever the rglages. In short, this pedal is perfect for someone who does not play guitar, it totally obscures the game messes up the masterful guitarist and Manire her into a bitter thing and / or filthy. All without character, so no longer esprez express yourself with your guitar.

    NOTICE GLOBAL

    I have this pedal for 2 years, a friend has given me. He had bought this pedal when he started the guitar. Today, it is a true purchased: a Blackstar HT Dual. Well I quickly understood why he did not take what I pay him when I get me bought another.
    At the same time, for the price it is expected much. But when even more than a.

    In any case rflchissez well before you consider buying this pedal, imagine that you will play with you stronger in stores, your amp will be worse than the one on which you test p dale, and that you might find in trying it, "pchu and destroy", is rvlera so deafening and ugly.
    Also take into account the fact that no one will want you to buy it, so you have that you have a beginner guitar player friend at hand to rid esprer you one day ...

  • How disappointing

    Boss DS-1 DistortionPublished on 11/25/14 at 10:28
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    This is a distortion pedal.
    Supplied without power.

    UTILIZATION

    Setup is simple, we can find different sounds easily. It's pretty simple, a few knobs turn and basta. Easily found the maximum potential of this effect.

    SOUND QUALITY

    The effect is not at all effective in my case. The sound is really very very very "digital" ca rens really artificial to perfection and it is clear that we have a Distortion pedal 50 € the colors of the DDE.
    Joe Satriani has one it seems ... But it also seems she is moddée. This may be the value of this pedal. It is not too expensive, is it can be made to be moddée.
    But new, vulgar distortion simulation discount is obtained. This is really bad.

    I used this pedal on a Gibson Les Paul 70's Tribute, and an Ibanez RG on Marshall amps Valvestate VS265R Marshall DSL40C, Orange Micro Crush CR-3. Nothing ay do is bad!

    OVERALL OPINION

    I used it a few days, not more. I had not used real effects worthy of the name before that this is a Peavey VYPYR with effects in models of same value or Multi zoom effects that gave the same effect made made in Lidl

    With the experience I do not redeem this pedal. First I try to test the DS-1 modées before I started!

    Distortion pedal called "classic". Given the number of models that run we can talk about "standard" or "stallion". Some personality.

    UTILIZATION

    Easy to use, as written elsewhere, 3 knobs, switch.

    SOUND QUALITY

    My opinion is purely subjective, but for me, this pedal is very efficient. I played with for 20 years and I always come back. It is in position 3 in my chain of OD after a Boss Blues Driver and Ibanez TS9. She crunch perfectly, whatever the guitar and amp and more, it combines perfectly with the previous two pedals. If we take a few knobs, it saturates quickly. Perfect for rock.
    Not a monstrous gain, but enough to send the sauce without worries.

    Well it is true that we should not have a heavy hand on the distortion and tone knobs for the past three quarters of the race of these it becomes very loud. At this point we get a sound that goes beyond the usual, but difficult to use for my part paths.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I do not understand the negative reviews, because this pedal has become a "standard" experienced since its sortie.Ce is not a pedal "plug and play", that is certain. You have to fight the grind, tame ... But once one understands the intricacies of gadget we take a real pleasure to snap ....
    Conclusion: Some very good stuff, but probably less popular today because of its strong personality typed "vintage".

    The distortion is cold and screaming, I can play with no more than ten hours in total before returning to the basic distortion of my amp (Marshall MG50FX)

    I've had almost a year, but I've only used it a few hours in total, because the sound does not suit me (but please can could be more) and especially the continuous whistle unbearable when the pedal is activated.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for a year, I had several ds-1 modified in the hands, and the only one I found is the best outlaw-mod. Mine is from 1989, I know they changed anointed components from. For me it is an extra distortion, because I am fortunate enough to have many expensive distos. The value for money is unbeatable. On top of that it is easy to find secondhand!
