    Great pedal, and I would buy it again in a heartbeat.

    This is a great sounding overdrive on its own - very smooth and creamy sounding overdriven tone, great for all kinds of classic rock.

    You hear things like "it cuts out too much bass", when that's really what the pedal is supposed to do.

    I've been playing guitar for 7 years.
    I've been playing in a worship band for a church for nearly 3 years.
    I've been leading said worship band for about a year now.
    With worship music you don't want anything heavy (especially on Sunday morning with elderly people who question contemporary Christian music), you want a slight over drive. (especially if you're the only guitarist playing or there is only one other guitarist)
    The range of sounds this produces is amazing. I could get a simple slight overdrive that is perfect for Sunday mornings.
    Or take it all the way to really rock out for a youth event.
    Boss pedals are the real deal. period.

    I picked this up in order to boost my gain on my amp a bit. It does a wonderful job of that (Drive set low and the level set high. Tone set to taste.) The additional noise it produces is relatively low, so you won't have any excessive staticy buzzing sound to deal with. As with any other Boss pedals, it's well made and reliable.

    I'm a drive pedal junkie. I've tried dozens of them. So many that I can't remember all of the ones I've tried.

    As of 12-2-13,the Boss SD-1 stands as the best overdrive pedal for my needs. Notice that I didn't say "for the money". No, that's just the icing on the cake. Here's what I've tried and/or owned:

    BBE Green Screamer
    Boss BD-2
    Boss OS-2
    Digitech Bad Monkey
    Fulltone OCD
    Fulltone Fulldrive 2
    Ibanez TS9
    MXR Custom Bada$$ Modified OD
    Proco RAT2

    I bought my SD-1 when I was a high school senior circa 1994. Back then I had cheap guitars with crappy pickups and solid state amps that were thin, sterile, and lifeless. I thought this pedal would help. Well it didn't and was delegated to the closet where it sat for nearly 20 years until my desire to pick up the guitar took over. Several years of my career(s), personal destruction and re-construction were pretty well settled, well partially at least, I got back on the crazy horse that calls itself a guitar hobby.

    I tried all the above pedals and never really could settle on one. It was always something. Too harsh, too brittle, not enough sustain, too aggressive, etc.

    Then I took the SD-1 for a ride again, this time with a Fender Blues Junior and a Tele with some real pickups in it. That's what was missing all along, tubes and good pickups.

    This pedal does a great job tightening up the frequencies of the guitar and making your notes sing. Yes it rolls off highs and lows but that's the designs' intent. It makes dynamic amps like Fenders and Voxes sing while tightening up the response sort of like a compressor. What about the beloved tube screamer?

    I ordered this pedal to use on my pedal board on my B-52 AT-100 Tri-Rectifier (All Tube) Half Stack.

    I use the Amps distortion and use this pedal as a Booster (low drive value, higher level value). It essentially turns my 3 chennal amp in to a 6 channel amp; When I activate it on my clean tone, it gives me just a little bit of break-up, it gives a boost to my light distortion and heavy distortion channels when I activate it as well. So I use it when I want an "in-between" my light and heavy setting, or a little more out of my heavy setting, all without throwing the original tone out of whack thanks to the tone adjustment nob which I set to match my amps natural tone.

    This adds a lot of versatility to my setup, and I am very happy with it.

    I have also played around with using it like a distortion pedal just to see what it was like, and it was satisfactory.

    Great as a booster, as others have said. For solos, it'll boost your mids and your signal. As an overdrive, it's great, kind of a midsy, Marshally sound. It does suck out some of the low end, but you can fix that on your amp or board or whatever. It's a Boss, it's solid - and a great price. Remember, this is overdrive - not distortion. For distortion, look at other Boss pedals.

    I have several overdrive pedals, some of which are much more expensive than the BOSS SD-1. For a long time I overlooked my SD-1 and used other pedals. But when I went back to trying the SD-1, I was pleasantly surprised to find that this relatively inexpensive pedal is superior to some of the pedals I had been using. I don't mean merely that it's "very good relative to its price"; I mean that it's "very good--period." It easily outclasses some pedals for which I paid much more. The price for this pedal sometimes goes down to about $45 on Amazon. At that price, it's an amazingly good deal. Note: This is definitely an overdive pedal; it will not deliver metal distortion (at least not by itself). If you want to ride the crazy train, look elsewhere (like Deltalab's Metal Distortion pedal). What this produces is smooth old-style overdrive. It's excellent. It sounds especially good through a dash of chorus. I plug my SD-1 into a Fender Mustang II amp and turn on the amp's chorus; the result is delicious. I've used the SD-1 with both single-coil and double-coil pickups. Both sound good, though, not surprisingly, you get a heavier punch with a humbucker. But it sounds great with single-coils too.
