    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'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.

    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 just don't like the sound. It's too (and I know you're starting to roll your eyes) 'digital' or 'metal' through my Vox (no offense, metal bro's). The only way I like it with tubes is to drop the 'drive' really low and dime the 'level', but at that point I'm not getting much more crunch than if I just turned the amp up- which doesn't solve the ever-annoying "this club is tiny, how am I going to rock out with my amp at 3?" dilemma. Now, tone is totally subjective, and all amps/guitars/etc. sound a bit different, so it could just be my gear, but I have to say that while I love this for a tube-like drive for a solid state amp, it sounds cheesy with actual tubes.
