Boss DS1-X Distortion Pedal

I received my Boss Special Edition DS1-X Distortion pedal from Sweetwater Music I am very picky about my sound and not a huge fan of pedals, but once I plugged the DS1-X Distortion Pedal in it is amazing right out of the box.It's everything it says it is and then some!!!! . Best investment I have ever made.. It brings my Marshall JVM 410H Full stack and I don't even have to turn it to 10 to get the prefect sound...just as it was described by the Sweetwater service... You can get any sound you want from Legends like The Scorpions and Legendary Randy Rhoads.. From Clean sounds to growling distortion with out any muddy sounds. This pedal is great! Sweetwater music has The BEST customer Service EVER! Extremely helpful and very friendly and FAST shipping.. Defiantly will do business with them again Can't say enough about the Boss DS1-X pedal and Sweetwater Music. Just Amazing. It will blow you away. Boss out did themselves on this pedal...

Great Distortion Pedal

I have been able to dial in some great tones with this pedal. Very satisfied with the performance of this product.

Mehhhh its ok

So I finally tried this pedal the other day. Its a true modern distortion with solid bass, but when I cranked the gain the high frequencies really show through and not in a good way. Roll back the gain and the top end begins to muffle. I could also hear the old DS1 coming through when the gain was cranked. Side by side with the DA-2 was a no brainer win for the DA-2. The DA tone was solid top to bottom with the same nice bass response. Odd the DA-2 is no longer being made. The DS1X is an ok pedal, but I can still hear the old DS1 fuzz in there.
