This is the best distortion i have found, I just wish I could have 2 more so I could use more of it's tones.
Price: $59.99
Where Obtained: Guitar Center
Features:
Has a two band EQ, gain and distortion controlls and a volume knob.
Sound Quality:
I use it with a Gibson SG Special, and a Crate 120 watt solid state amp, and the tone and power is just awsome, it is a little loud when you just have it on and you're not playing, but it's not noticeable at all when you're playing. I would say it's probably better suited to rock and hard rock than blues or that sort of music, as it really does give a lot of bottom end when desired.
Ease of Use:
It takes a litte time to dial your tone but it can be set to almost anything and sound good.
Durability:
I kicked it off a stage once because it was shorting out, and all it needed was a little tightening of the inputs. This will not break.

I was planning to buy the MT-2, but this thing blows it out of the water. It's basically a souped-up DS-1.
Model Year: 2002
Price: $89.99 (new)
Where Obtained: Wray's Music House
Features:
Controls for Level, Tone, Bottom, Distortion and Gain Boost. Very simplistic, and not too hard to find a good sound.
Sound Quality:
When you crank up the gain boost you get mega noise, but unless you're not playing anything, or recording, it should be a problem.
Ease of Use:
Pretty easy to operate. It has everything a distortion pedal should have.
Durability:
Boss. 'Nuff said. Can also be used for a doorstop or car jack.

I would definately buy another on if lost or stolen. It is a wee bit on the expensive side, but with distortion like this, its well worth it.
Model Year: 2002
Price: $69.00 (new)
Where Obtained: Local music shop
Features:
This thing doesnt sing or dance or anything, but its a BOSS pedal, u know when you buy it it going to do exactly what it says it will. It can be plugged into the wall, ac, or battery powered. And it looks cool!
Sound Quality:
I got home and ran this thing through my 10 watt practice amp, what a difference. This thing sounds amazing, and can generate enough sounds to keep everyone happy. When i plugged it into my Marshall the neighbours rang up to complain. And they live miles away. Real rock/ classic rock kinda sound.
Ease of Use:
You could train a monkey to use the pedal. Although you really wouldnt want a monkey messin with it if it were yours.
Durability:
Pretty damn strong. Is there anything else you can say!
