BOSS DS-1 4A Limited Edition Black / Gold - Guitar Distortion Pedal
Boss has announced the DS-1-4A Distortion, a limited-edition stompbox that commemorates the 40th anniversary of BOSS compact pedals.
This special version of the long-running DS-1 Distortion pedal features a unique black and gold look and the classic tone that’s been a favorite of guitarists everywhere for nearly four decades. The DS-1-4A is the first release of the anniversary year, which will be celebrated with many other activities throughout 2017.
The DS-1 Distortion was introduced in 1978 as part of the second wave of compact pedal releases. Its hard-edged attack and smooth sustain was an instant success among guitarists, going on to fuel the signature sounds of numerous rock legends. This humble orange pedal has enjoyed such enduring popularity that’s it’s remained in the lineup to this day, outselling every other BOSS pedal to date.
The limited-edition DS-1-4A features a sleek black body with gold lettering, gold knobs, and a vintage silver thumbscrew for the battery compartment. The pedal comes in a special box with the Boss 40th anniversary logo, and will be available in 2017 only.
