MGR/Sam's review"Boss SD-1"

Boss SD-1 SUPER OverDrive
I paid $45 at a used gear place as it sounded OK in the store (like most gear)

Nice yellow box...hard to misplace

It sucks ALL the bottom out of your guitar sound, leaving only a raspy, thin 80's vacuum cleaner tone

Built like a tank...sadly

Waste of $45. For overdrive, the Maxon OD 808 is far superior and worth the extra cash.

MGR/Evan's review"Boss SD-1 Super Overdrive"

I bought this distortion pedal brand new at Mars Music for 50 dollars.

its looks cool...thats the only thing that i liked (its also very well made)

IT SOUND HORRIBLE!!!!!!!!!! i tried all kinds of defferent settings and it still sounded like garbage. My friend haas the boss metal zone pedal and i think that u should shell out the extra 40 dollars and get that cuz this pedal was a waste of my money...i eventually returned it for a D.O.D. death metal distortion pedal. The D.O.D. sounded 100 times better and was the same price (a little cheasy though).

Very well made...could survive a hurricane

Dont waste your money on this crappy pedal...if u want to sound like Grandpa, this is the pedal for you, but if you want to sound like kirk hammet of mark tremonti, the metal zone is the pedal for you!! (if you dont want to spend the extra 40 dollars and get the metal zone, then the D.O.D. sounds really good for being only 50 dollars, but there is lots of feedback, and its kinda cheasy...but it gets the job done)
