Great Quality but not my cup of tea.

As many a guitar player I'm looking for the holy grail of distortion pedals and the one that suits me best so far is one an unknown brand called Onerr, I believe it's the DST-1. It's not the quitest pedal I've come accros so far noise wise, the wazacraft performs much better but sound wise it can't beat this one. At least not for me. :-)
All the best keep on rocking

I love BOSS pedals for your design, reliability and robustness, and easy battery replacement. But so far there was never a booster or distortion of this company, with which I would be really 100% satisfied - especially in connection with my VOX AC30.

With the SD-1w this has now changed. The absolutely amazing thing is that with this pedal two basic work modes work equally well - both in the so-called "custom mode".

We assume the VOX AC30 (or similar tube amp) is torn to the limit of its internal gain (or distortion). He then delivers a crunch sound, which for example for Rhythm Parts à la Rolling Stones, Early AC / DC, Led Zeppelin, 77 Punk, etc. offers. Then adjust the SD-1w the tone slightly back, the level to at least 2 o'clock high and the drive turn back to about 10 o'clock. Now the SD-1w works great as a solo booster. It gives the sound just the right amount of extra volume, additional sustain, and a bit more distortion for lead parts. The sound remains beautifully transparent, can be adjusted in the distortion with the volume potentiometer of the guitar excellently and possibly biting highs can be throttled with the tone control.

There are not many pedals with which the above setup works really well, but so far the SD-1w is the only pedal I know with which not only this application works, but also the following:

We have adjusted the VOX AC30 (or a similar tube amp) to a good clean-sound, which is slightly saturated, and now turn the SD-1w's drive control to maximum, adjust the Tone control to the center position and control With Level the volume so high that when the pedal is activated, it is only one tick above that of the clean sound. So we get the distortion purely from the pedal and the clean sound from the amplifier, as if we had a two-channel amp. And also that goes! It sounds with the pedal activated almost exactly as if I had torn the amp itself to the maximum of its distortion. The clarity and definition of the guitar are not lost.

And this is probably the special feature of the SD-1w compared to the much cheaper standard SD-1. Everything sounds more transparent and defined. The frequencies are tidier. It all sounds less nasal and center, punch in the bass is not lost, "scratching" in the treble can be better mastered.

For me, with this pedal is really a dream come true!
