How can you not have this on your pedalboard? It's a classic! You love the sound of an overdriven amp, right? Well, sometimes, it's just not feasible to turn way up and get those power tubes cooking. That's where Boss's ultra-affordable SD-1 Super OverDrive pedal comes in! You can dial up everything from subtle grit to smooth, sustaining lead tones with this little wonder. And, best of all, you can control how much overdrive you get by altering your picking attack — just like you would with an overdriven tube amp!

I use the SD-1 primarily for worship music in our church's band and have it going into the front of a clean amp (a Tech 21 Blonde). With this pedal/amp configuration I can dial in thick, warm overdrive, or a more transparent, delicate clean sound with a little bite.
Your pickups will play a huge role in the sound you get from this pedal. The Kiesel Lithium pickups in my Aries produce a thick, raging overdrive that cleans up ok with the guitar's volume knob. This allows me to significantly change my tone depending on my picking attack, as I can get light, pretty singles notes/chords when picking softly, and full on roaring chords during a chorus. A hot humbucker will drive this pedal into full overdrive quickly, even with the gain on low.
Single coils will respond much differently, producing a cleaner, transparent overdrive in the low to mid gain setting. Turning the gain up higher will of course add to the dynamic response of your picking and allow you to clean it up with your volume knob much more so than with humbuckers.
The overdrive is smooth and round not too shrill or harsh. The drive goes way beyond what I would need. The price was a nice surprise.
The only thing that I can say bad about it is that it is hard to dial in just a little crunch. On the other hand, I wanted to do two pedals to step up by switching between them and use them together, so I added a Joyo Sweet Baby and got just what I was looking for.
