Best Overdrive for the price
What is your opinion of this product?
This is a great overdrive. There's a reason boss has been making these for over 30 years. Great for boost, bluesy drive or light crunch.

Great sound and quality
What is your opinion of this product?
A friend gave me a Boss SD-1 in 1993. I have used it in my setup for the last 24 years until I fried it last month by accident. It still looked and worked as well as it did the day he gave it to me. I replaced it with a new SD-1. The quality was the same but the sound was better than old one. I am almost thankful for my mistake and can hear a defiant improvement of my all around sound do to this pedal. Boss makes great equipment. I expect to have and use this one for a very long time.

Complements my tone nicely
What is your opinion of this product?
The extra grit and presence this pedal adds as a boost complements my tone nicely and gives me a different flavor from my modded Bad Monkey OD which is my usual go-to boost. I've used various other ODs as well but will keep the SD1 on my pedal board for sure.

Solid overdrive pedal with great tone
What is your opinion of this product?
This pedal pairs well with every amp I have plugged it into (jr blues, bassbreaker, orange rocker). It has good tone, a good classic rock overdrive sound, the pedal is sturdy and feels solid on the board. I am very satisfied with this pedal.

Classic staple pedal
What is your opinion of this product?
Is there anything new to say about this pedal? Ive used screamers before and never really liked them. So I figured why not try an sd1. Zakk wylde used them for ages so I figured good enough for me. Its boss so its built like a tank and is just a solid boost pedal that also does some great mid crunch tones.

Great OD Boost and good on its own
What is your opinion of this product?
I use this as a OD Booster for my Ibanez Super Tube. There is little to complain about. It is also good on its own.

Mild Overdrive 335 KB
This demo shows the SD1 with the DRIVE control at a lower level and TONE set a only about a third. Good for a bluesy sound.
Hard overdrive 338 KB
DRIVE turned all the way up and highs boosted with the TONE control.
As a booster 338 KB
With DRIVE set low and LEVEL turned all the way up, the SD1 functions as a gain booster, augmenting amp distortion and providing deeper, thicker sounds.
