Opinión Boss DS-1 Distortion

victhebig23/04/2009

La opinión de victhebig

Boss DS-1 Distortion
EL pedal de distorsión, simplemente...Los que tienen una opinión negativa sobre este pedal deberían de cambiar de ocio.Es una herramienta musical, que responde muy muy bien al ataque, una dinámica increíble.El Rat Vintage es el único pedal que se acerque a éste, pero en un registro un tanto diferente.

UTILIZACIÓN

Configuración sencilla : la distorsión suena bien en toda la acción del pote, los medios y agudos no se pierden. El pote de tonalidad permite añadir medios/agudos, por ejemplo cuando uno toca con la pastilla del mástil o cuando el ajuste de la distorsión está reducido.

CALIDAD SONORA

Con es canal OD de mi Marshall, suena Nirvana, instantáneo y flagrante.Quiero comprar un segundo DS1 para modificarlo y ver si se puede mejorar, por ejemplo, el nivel de salida del pedal (en el canal claro es cierto que fuese mejor un poco más de volumen).

OPINIÓN GLOBAL

Por supuesto, la distorsión ideal es la de un ampli de 3000?.Una pena.Pero uno no se va a suicidar tampoco.Existe el DS1, el RAT, y que se vayan a la  m... los ricosA los que consideran que esta distorsión es común o neutra, mejor decir que están hablando de si mismo. Que vayan a vivir a un hospital blanco.

La opinión de tonmazz (content in English)"Boss DS-1 Tried and True for basic Distortion tone"

Boss DS-1 Distortion
No rocket science in the features of the Boss DS-1, just straight ahead fizz when you need it. Three easy to use controls for tone level and distortion. That's as straight forward as it gets. Well made and instruction manual is more than sufficient.

UTILIZATION

The tone control takes the DS-1 into bright to bassy territory depending on the setting. Level sets your level of the pedal tone in comparision to your amp tone. FInally the Distortion dial gives you more or less distortion depending on your preference. As I said, very straight forward and easy to use configuration with few bells and whistles. Typical Boss battery configuration for easy changing of the 9 volt. Can take a power adapter as well.

SOUND QUALITY

This is a tough one for me because before I recently became a tone snob, I used the DS-1 through a Fender Twin Reverb for many years and loved it. It served its purpose which was to make a clean toned amp sound dirty and hairy. I have to say back then I loved it and it was all I needed to gig with. To my more picky ears these days, it can be a little harsh and fizzy but that is what it's supposed to do so I don't mean that in a negative way. We all have preferences for what we'd like to hear and to my ears these days, I prefer a warmer distortion less abrasive and more compressed. This is not it if that is the goal. It creates an open, fizzy gain that works for most hard rock songs and in a mix who can really tell anyway.

OVERALL OPINION

I like the simplicity of this unit and when I gigged with it years ago I really like it a lot. While I have one now as a back up, I don't actively use it anymore but I think it is perfect for what it is and it is truly an old standby. Hard to find anyone in my group that hasn't used this at one point or another. Yes there are better units out there but for simplicity and price this one is tried and true and works well.

Boss DS-1 Distortion
The Boss DS-1 is a distortion based effect. It is used to add an analog type distortion to a guitar signal before use in an amplifier. This distortion has been around for many years and has remained unchanged though it's production life. The unit has three user definable controls to allow for configuration of the sound. There are two ¼ inch jacks, one for the guitar input and one to send to an amplifier. There is also a 9 volt adapter jack available so the unit can be powered from an external AC source (sold separately).

This distortion effect pedal can be tailored through three user controls. These consist of level, tone, and distortion. The level control is responsible for the overall output of the unit that will feed the amplifier. As this knob is turned clockwise the overall volume will increase. The distortion dial allows the user to control the amount of clipping, or distortion the unit will produce. As this control is turned clockwise the amount of gain will increase producing a more distorted signal. The tone control will affect the how much high or low signal is processed through the unit. As the dial travels clockwise the tone will alter from a thick, bass heavy sound to a cutting, high treble sound.


UTILIZATION

The Boss DS-1 is one of the easier effects to tailor in your pedal board. This effect should be one of the first in your signal chain, before all time based effects but after and compressor or envelope type effect, like a wha. As with any distortion based effect you will want to add or decrease levels so they are most complimentary to your amplifier. The effect is engaged when the red LED is lit, always be sure the light is bright as a dimly lit LED will indicate a weak battery that will affect the quality of your sound. The manual is very basic but it does get its point across.
