BOSS has revamped two of their most venerable pedals, the OD-1 Overdrive and DS-1 Distortion, in the form of the new OD-1X and DS-1X. Both pedals feature next-generation technology, individual High and Low controls, powerful real-time processing to deliver rich, wide-range sounds with natural compression, and BOSS’ innovative Multi-Dimensional Processing (MDP), realized with proprietary technology and custom DSP. You’ll still be able to get the classic DS-1 and OD-1 pedals if you want, but these two units take decades of Roland/BOSS R&D and distill it into new units which take the essence of those classics and blast them into the future. Here’s the press release:
PRESS RELEASE: BOSS is pleased to announce the OD-1X Overdrive and DS-1X Distortion, two special edition compact pedals for guitarists with an ear for premium tone. Delivering a refined tonal experience that’s only possible with the legendary expertise of BOSS, the OD-1X and DS-1X will forever change the way players think about overdrive and distortion.
Bringing together decades of innovation in pedal design with the most advanced tone technologies, the OD-1X and DS-1X offer next-generation performance that opens up a modern era of expression for guitarists everywhere. Featuring all-new designs powered by BOSS’ cutting-edge Multi-Dimensional Processing (MDP), these inspiring pedals provide superior sound, feel, and response characteristics that are impossible to achieve with traditional analog designs.
