    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 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.

    I've used a lot of Boss Pedals in the past and this one is great just like all of the others. I've always liked the silent operation of the Boss Pedals. I've purchased several Electo-Harmonix pedals and, while they have great sound and are made very well, when they are engaged, they make a very loud "CLICK" sound...not so great when you are at a quiet part of a song and want to prepare for an upcoming change in tone/sound and a "CLICK" comes right before you start playing. If you like silent operation then Boss is the way to go.

    It looks very simple with only three knobs, but you can get some good sounds out of this simple-looking box.

    Very good construction and great sound.

    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'm using it with a valve amplifier from the 60's and the sound of the distortion is very rough and very authentic, I really like it.

    It's a good OD, but I thought it would be higher output, and more articulate. Just personal preference. I mean, the Pedal is a Classic for a reason.

    For the money, I have no complaints. The enclosure, dials, and footswitch are all durable. Not true bypass, but none of the BOSS pedals are. It doesn't suck tone. This pedal isn't the end-all be-all overdrive, but with asymmetrical clipping it fills a niche that TS pedals don't. You lose a little low end when it is engaged, but that actually works pretty well for leads- especially with humbuckers or amps with a looser kind of 'classic' distortion encountered with EL84s. As a stand alone overdrive, I prefer other pedals. But where this pedal really works for me is as a boost to other dirtboxes or an already overdriven amp. You get singing, harmonic leads when it is dialed in right. Like any overdrive, you introduce noise when the pedal is engaged and things can get hissy while you are palm muting if you crank it too far. I am a dirtbox hoarder and I like to rotate the pedals and try different combinations. Lately, I am running this into either the V1 Cool Cat transparent overdrive (Timmy Clone - very, very nice) or the Behringer BO-100 (which is a dead ringer for the Boss Blues Driver) then into a tube amp that is dialed in on mild crunch (Jet City Combo or Palomino Combo). As with any overdrive, this thing will not sound very good (IMHO) running into a solid state amp. That's just not what it was intended to do. It was intended to drive preamp tubes into saturation but YMMV. Because I'm a cheapskate (and because these things are durable like bricks) I bought it used for $20, but it is well worth the new asking price.
