Got a Boss SD-1...

I went to GC today to burn up a 30% off coupon with the intent of buying an RC-2 Loop Station. They said that Boss wouldn't allow the store to take 30% off the RC-2, but that I could apply the remaining % off on another item. So, for fun I jumped on the $59.99 SD-1 Super Distortion. I've got the OCD, TS-808, TS-9, Reverend DTII, and others - and I have to say that I love this little Boss box!! I've only pushed my Strat and Tele through it this afternoon, but just love the slush-ified, drippin' Strat tones coming out of the yellow pedal. I planned to send it off to Keeley for their SD-1 mod, but I think I'll keep it stock.


Oh yeah, the RC-2 is cool too.....:BEER

if you don't mind a bit of bass loss they're great! especially for leads.

had mine for three or four years now. i'll never sell it or even mod it!

i think SD-1's are decent in their stock form. they're a little harsh, but excellent once AM or keeley modifies them...

i have an old stock one at home that i just keep as a back-back-up. it's a good versatile, inexpensive pedal....

that harshness is what makes it such a cool pedal IMO. This makes it great for bringing out definition in more complex chords. ymmv.

$59.99? Doesn't MF have these for $49.99?

Either way, watch out for SD-1 signal bleed. Something about the design. I did the Monte ALlums SD-GT mod to mine and it's awesome. I've used it and a Blues Jr. at jams and people have been very impressed.

Analogman's SD-1/808 Silver mod is really good. Ask Mike to also put the 'bleed' mod in there if you decide to send it to him.

I think I might pull some pennies together and order one from one of the mod-ers out there and keep the stock one.

I have a Whizzer modded one (two toggles... One for more or less sustain and the other for asymetrical OD. It also have the Spill Over mod that cures the bleed. It's brand new and for sale incidentally.
