Up for sale, a 2020 Boss DS-1X Distortion pedal in near-mint condition and in perfect working order. This special edition of the iconic DS-1 platform reimagines the iconic tones heard on the pedalboards of players like Kurt Cobain and Robert Smith.
The DS-1X features Boss’s new proprietary Multi-Dimensional Processing (MDP) technology; separating the input signal into different “dimensions” by frequency and dynamics, and then analyzing each dimension separately for optimal performance and tonal control. In line with that sculpting control, the DS-1X has Low and High knobs for two-band EQ capability where the DS-1 had just one Tone knob, retaining the standard Level and Distortion controls. The resulting distortion is crystal clear, with very little unwanted noise (even when cranked), never muddy or inarticulate.
This pedal is in fantastic shape, with just a scant few tiny nicks on the sparkle orange enclosure. The chrome faceplate and knobs are exceptionally clean, and the pedal has a vintage-style silver battery compartment screw.
