As its name suggests, it is an overdrive (and maybe more).
The case is solid like all Boss pedals. The yellow color gives life to Pedalboards sometimes a little dull.
It is therefore an analog effect can not be easier with three knobs

Pedal so simple!

UTILIZATION

As mentioned above, the configuration could not be easier. There is no indication in the manual but the need does not feel. Turning the knobs 30 seconds to see what happens, you soon realize that we should not push too high volume, drive adjusts depending on what you are looking for:
the slight crunch limits the distortion (without ever reaching so far.

SOUND QUALITY

The overdrive is great because it offers a wide range of sounds, from mild overdrive to limit the distortion. The sound is warm and rather round, something I really appreciate. I think the cons by volume may be a little too sensitive ...
Unlike some pedals in its category for the same budget, there is very little wind and noise. Despite the years (6 years now and I have that I used).

OVERALL OPINION

For 6 years now, this pedal complete my game whatever amp I'm using (the small 5W to 100W ... big stacks).
I appreciate having a pedal simple, inexpensive, and that is not a gas plant!
The settings are simple while sounds very good, the rigidity of the case Boss is no longer re ...

With experience, I would do without hesitation that choice. But I buy OCCAZ! 2x cheaper! Given the strength of the effect, it's worth it!
