Boss SD-1 Overdrive

Super Overdrive Pedal

The Boss Super Overdrive provides a soft, tube-like distortion, ideal for melodic lead sounds. But turning the tone control up can make it quite coarse. The SD-1 delivers excellent results before a pre-distorted amp; with low Drive and high Level it is also ideal as a booster for eliciting the missing bit of sustain and distortion on a good-sounding tube amp that is made in more of a classic design (i.e. has relatively little gain).

  • Warm, soft distortion of a tube amp
  • Level, Tone and Drive adjustable
  • Very robust, compact design
  • Battery and mains operation possible
  • Optional mains adaptor: Thomann NT AC/PSA # 108096

Quality sounding and well built product.

19.08.2016
I bought this pedal to be used as a tubescreamer equivelant to help improve clarity when playing high gain style music. After searching and reading hundreds of reveiws for different pedals of a similar purpose i eventually took a punt with the boss pedal, as they seemed to have a reputation to be extremely well built and with this i cannot disagree especially compared to the cheaper chinese copys. With a solid metal housing and nice feeling knobs.
The pedal serves its purpose with my rig and cleans up the sound improving overall clarity. The pedal does however cut the bass quite noticeably when kicked on which can be lowered by cutting the tone and level knobs.
The gain within the pedal can produce a gritty and dirty bluesy sound when applied to a clean channel but will not produce metal level gains like other pedals as it is only a overdrive , not a distortion pedal.

Overall as a tubescreamer equivelant the pedal is undeniably an option to anybody. It sounds good, does the same job as the tubescreamer and especailly considering the price of the pedal being atleast £40 cheaper than the TS. The only main gripe i have is the colour but thats just being picky

Good overdrive to get some extra tone

21.02.2017
Mostly I play using AMT P2 preamp, which is modelled around 5150 preamp. It sounds good, but lacks clarity on neck pickup. Maybe it is because of the guitar.

Yes, it improves the sound in the way I wanted, now neck pickup sounds great, it adds noticeble sustain.

At the same time, when playing heavy riffs, I can hear that it cuts of too much base. Some extra EQ needed for really brutal sound.

Also it works great in front of Atomic Amplifire pedal, and even pushes the virtual amplifier the way it should.

If you wanna shred, this overdrive is for you.
