Boss SD-1 Super Overdrive

Comments about Boss SUPER OverDrive SD-1 Pedal:

the Boss SD-1 is the best Overdrive value on the market! The SD-1's circuit is very similar to that of a vintage Tube Screamer, except for the addition of an additional diode in the clipping section. The resulting asymmetrical wave pattern produced a deeper, richer bass response than the Tube Screamer's symmetrical clipping section. The SD-1's sound is also less focused in the mid-range frequencies than the Tube Screamer and is not as smooth. The stock SD-1 produces a classic overdrive sound in it's own right. However, you can also find numerous DIY modification on the web that will allow you to turn your SD-1 into a "boutique" pedal for just a few dollars and a couple of hours time. I performed a mod to improve the bypass mode, as well as added a switch that allows me to toggle between symmetric and asymmetric clipping. I also switched out a few components to improve bass response, increase the amount of available overdrive, and also provide more clean headroom.

Comments about Boss SUPER OverDrive SD-1 Pedal:

This pedal gives great tone without too much noise or useless sounds. Add a little compression and delay and you could rock like Edge. Sounds great through any Fender guitar I've played it through.
