Is there such a thing as a Boss OD-1 clone?
Thunder Tomate used to make the Taxi Driver which was an OD-1 clone, but I've not heard of any other. A tubescreamer with asymmetric clipping should get you there.
I reckon you would get in the ball park with a Timmy.
I'm pretty sure the Boss super overdrive is the same pedal but with a tone control.
I totally disagree with the 2 posts above me. I had those 3 pedals and they all sound different. The OD-1 has a similar EQ to a tubescreamer, actually. Bass cut and slight midboost.
But thats exactly what the SD1 is. Boss' take on the TubeScreamer.
Close, however the OD-1 cuts more bass pre clipping than the SD-1.
And still I am looking................
The guy's reserve price is $90.
You can't go wrong with Thundertomate, great Spanish pedal builder!
Considering that the clipping schemes are completely the opposite, I'm not sure how you can say that. What do you base this opinion of yours on?
I have one. I don’t know if it’s a clone or not. It does have three clipping diodes and a quad op amp. I will tell you that it sounds fantastic
TT's is a clone of the long chip OD1 (early-version).
A Tubescreamer is an OD1 with symmetric clipping. The TS has symmetric clipping to get around the Boss patent.
Any reason you resurrected a 6 year old thread? lol
BYOC makes one.
You know how someone asks a question that’s already been covered by numerous threads and everyone’s like, “omg search function?”
