Wikipedia Roulette: Boss DS-1
The Boss DS-1 is a basic distortion pedal manufactured by the Roland Corporation under the brand name Boss since 1978. It has one tone knob, one level knob, and one distortion knob. It can produce a thin, light, snappy distortion up to a heavy and harsh sound.
Kurt Cobain owned the pedal. Which might make this the most relevant Wikipedia roulette ever. When I was a child I never understood how musicians could make their guitars make weird sounds without the pedals. Then I learned if you get really big, you can pay someone to do it FOR YOU…and NO ONE SEES THEM. I GET MORE CREDIT THIS WAY.
Congrats to Tyler who scored three day Lollapolooza passes. He’s excited about Bang Camaro, and having just read about them, so am I.
