Good compromise

DocR, 05.07.2016
Analog or digital - what should you take? The Boss OD-1X depends on various Fender tube amplifiers (Princeton, Deluxe Reverb). Of course, I have also the usual yellow and blue BOSS analog distortion, but still have a distortion or better "Overdrive" with a little more influence possibilities on the sound. The overdrives emphasize the center frequencies and caps basses, which of course makes sense. Sometimes you want to give some thrust from below, especially at smaller volume.

After I have already had a good experience with the bass version of the -1X series from Boss, the OD-1X has been included in the collection and has depended since the delivery before the amp. The degree of distortion achievable with the OD-1X is enough for me , I usually hear on Drive settings in the first third of the control path. Very nice is the response to the attack strength and the position of the volume potentiometer on the guitars. I have tried the OD-1X currently with Telecastern with single coil and with single coil / Humbucker equipment and an Epiphone DOT, which has not mounted too humbucker.

Even slightly tweaked sounds are fun. Due to the bass and treble control, I can influence the sound exactly as intended.

I have tried the OD-1X so far only with power supply. It depends on various other effects on a Harley Benton Powerplant and does not disturb the other effects at all. I have not tried battery operation.

The yellow paint looks good. The chrome plate under the also chrome plated potis are taste, the potis run however beautifully stiff and evenly. The shelf life is hopefully the boss standard, my oldest boxes are from the 1980ern and still function as new.

Great pedal overdrive

bernardo231, 16.08.2016
Definitely the best overdrive I've ever had. Its biggest defect is the high price but it is worth spending a little more for this pedal, especially if, as is my case because of the style of music I play, you will use it a lot. It puts absolutely no noise and gives a variety of sounds of incredible quality.
A long time ago I acquired the Boss DS-1X and together with this makes a perfect pair, even since I have both the distortion pedal puts less noise (I used to have it with a Boss OS-2).
In short I am more than satisfied with the purchase and above all very happy with the remarkable improvement that this pedal brought to my sound (along with his brother DS-1X) so I recommend it to everyone without hesitation.
