Guitar EffectThe OD-3 has a soft, rather central basic sound, which can be varied well with the tone control. Thus it is ideal to drive big "evil" amp towers and to elicit even more sustain, distortion, but also warmth. Even used with small amps, it provides excellent services.

Many guitarists use the OD-3 with little distortion, but higher volume as a booster, thus bringing hot lead sounds to their tube amps faster.

Boss OD-3

Rory B. 463, 30.07.2013
Every guitar player who gets the pedal bug will go through the purchase and upgrade of their gear as sure as the sun will rise tomorrow. At some point in that process you will probably use Boss effects and you could do a lot, lot worse than try this drive pedal. The key to this pedal is the level knob, the tone knob will brighten or darken your sound, the drive knob goes from hint to soaked and the level knob either reigns the volume in or puts you totally over the top. It's robust, easy to use and gives you a good driven tone which is just what you want.

Great, warm Blues tone

Benjamin311, 17.02.2014
Boss says, the OD-3 had a "bigger, smoother tone than any Overdrive pedal ever had". I say: It's true!

The tone is very warm and fat, much smoother than for example the Boss BluesDriver. The drive range starts with a nearly clean, slightly fattened tone and ends with a solid rock sound. The tone poti allows to adjust the highs and the "punch" of the Overdrive. It's a good way to control the basic sound of the drive, the overall control still can be done with the amp.

The OD-3 fits perfectly in any amp character: It supports its tone and doesn't change it too much. It always adds smoothness and bass to it, but if you have a Marshall, it will still sound like Marshall. The best thing is the OD-3's dynamic: You can turn the drive poti completely up, but you'll still be able to control the drive from clean to completely overdriven just by using your guitar's volume poti.

By turning down the drive knob and cranking up the volume you can use the OD-3 as booster and sustainer too add a creamy component to your amps overdrive. I use it with volume at 10, drive at 2.5 and tone at 4: With a clean amp sound I get a nice blues tone, with my amp distorted the Boss is a booster for my solo sound.

Quality and handling is classic Boss-like. Perfectly crafted and a real work horse on stage: You could drop this thing down from the 10th floor and it would survive :-)
