Step on it and Wail!
by yerkool45 from San diego,CA U.S.AThis is by far one of the best boost pedal I've ever own without spending over $50,without killing your tone, and it also beat out those high $ pedals as well. The secret lies in how to set it up. L... read more [+]evel Knob at max,Tone knob at 10'Oclock and Drive knob at 9'Oclok which I use as the level knob. This goes in front of My awesome Boss OD-3 which I use alot for rhythm work. And when solo spots come up during live gigs I step on the SD-1 and go at it baby! I need to buy another one of these and another Boss OD-3 for my smaller set up I'm building soon..... close [-]

In my opinion, this is one of the best Boss pedals out there. Less trebly than the OD-3 and fantastic across the entire sweep of the drive knob. Sounds great in front of both British and American flavored amps. close [-]
Beats the Tubescreamer
by Dan from MichiganFantastic gritty overdrive tones, beats the tubescreamer hands down. Almost the same circuit as the tubescreamer though - very moddable.

Only complaint is the distortion bleed-through, but I don't use it on settings that high and like I said, very moddable. close [-]

GREAT FOR LEADS BEHIND A FUZZ OR DISTORTION PEDAL
by J.C. AmericanDeluxeStrat from Tazewell,TNI added the SD-1 to my pedal board right behind a BOSS BD-2 "Bluesdriver" the BD-2 creates a perfect crunch , then when the SO-1 is engaged it creates a perfect lead tone on my marshall tube amp. Alon... read more [+]e the tone is not so great , but behind a good distortion or fuzz pedal this thing sounds amazing. Sounds best coming through a tube amp, looses a little of its bite coming through solid state. Bump it in on a tube amp with a little fuzz and you'll love the tone. close [-]
