    In 1977, BOSS launched the iconic compact series with the OD-1 Overdrive, PH-1 Phaser, and SP-1 Spectrum pedals. In the 40 years since that introduction, the colorful line has been adopted by generations of musicians, with 119 unique pedal models produced to date and well over 15 million units sold. Boss' pedals are used by players of all levels, from famous touring pros to bedroom hobbyists. In fact, it’s hard to find an experienced guitarist who hasn’t used one or more BOSS pedals at some point throughout their playing career. 

    BOSS stompboxes are renowned for their great sound, rugged durability, and a unique practical design that remains vital four decades on. But while these primary factors haven’t changed, the technology that goes inside the pedals has continually evolved. 

    From the beginning, we’ve maintained a passionate spirit as a sound innovator. Leveraging knowledge gained through persistent research and experimentation, Boss' pedals incorporate everything from old-school analog circuits to high-tech DSP. But while the design approaches differ, there has always been just one goal in mind: to achieve the very best sound possible.

    The current BOSS compact lineup includes over 50 models that cover the effects needs of guitarists, bassists, and other musicians around the world. We are extremely proud that Boss' pedals continue to inspire creativity in all types of genres, and remain dedicated to leadership in pedal innovation for many decades to come.

The DS-1 is the top-selling BOSS compact pedal ever, and its original, unchanged design continues to inspire the creation of great music everywhere. The classic DS-1 tone is behind the signature sounds of numerous rock legends, and is ready to fuel your own signature sound today.
