What’s all the hoopla and praise for this pedal. I’ve been playing guitar for 50 years, but just this week I bought my first Boss SD-1 Overdrive pedal. I’ve used many OD pedals during those years and I have, what I think is one of the the best OD pedal out there,...a Maxon OD9. I’ve owned it for over 20 years. But I keep reading how great the SD1 is, for years and years I’m hearing how great this OD pedal is. So last week I decided to buy one and check it out,....what a disappointment!! Oh sure it added overdrive like it’s suppose to, but it also added its own tone,....which leaves a lot to be desired! I have a great sounding amp and the last thing I want is an OD pedal coloring that great tone! I thought it would be a very transparent pedal, a pedal that would add some low levels of gain to enhance an already great sounding amp, not change the tone. Man was I wrong, you know sometimes the grass looks greener,....but not this time. All I can say is my Maxon is going nowhere, and my SD-1 is going back to the store!
