Boss DS-1 Limited Edition 50th Anniversary Distortion Pedal

In celebration of our milestone 50th anniversary, BOSS has unveiled a trio of collectible, limited-edition versions of our most popular and influential compact pedals. The DS-1 Distortion (DS-1-B50A), SD-1 Super Overdrive (SD-1-B50A), and BD-2 Blues Driver (BD-2-B50A) offer a host of unique commemorative features and have been produced in strictly limited numbers, with just 7,000 units available worldwide.

The DS-1 Distortion is a true icon in the world of guitar effects, with well over one million sold and counting. Introduced in 1978, BOSS’s first distortion pedal defined a bold new sound, delivering a hard-edged attack and smooth sustain that’s been a staple of players for generations. 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.
