Mingle these two to choose from, as you go along & for good measure, just throw in a RV5 Digital Reverb & you've got all you will ever need. 🎸 Heaven ~ Thanks 'Boss'
2016 - still on John 5's board apparently
Once I was back home, I straight away jacked my guitar in and hit the chord with SD1. I could not get heavier or noisier or crunchier sound that I hoped for. Disappointed at first, I could not even go back on holiday to the same place for refund. Having no choice, I had to keep it. Keep it on the chain next to DS1.
The more I used it, the more I got used to with its sound. It leaves me to wonder when they describe the sound of pedals in words like crunchy, natural, warm, deep, flat, etc. This one sounds like as if the sharp edges of that crunchy sound of Over Drive OD3 is smoothed out. And the condensed dots in the overdriven sound are thinned out. Now I don't have to switch the knobs of DS1 every now and then for different music. For heavy stuff I kick DS1 and for soft and bluesy SD1.
Still I wonder what is in the name 'Super'. But I learnt now that it is one of the Super Cool pedals the Boss made.

But... It may be exactly what you're looking for. Its tonally very similar to the legendary Ibanez Tubescreamer (perhaps slightly brighter)... It produces a smooth, natural sounding overdrive that works best when pushing a slightly crunchy valve amplifier. If you're after the Tubescreamer sound, check this baby out first, and save yourself a heap of cash.
So, while its not really my cup of tea, it does what its designed to do very well, and at a very tempting price. Its worth stressing that this is designed to push a valve amplifier... Using it as a standalone crunch pedal with a solid state amp will leave you very disappointed.
So I recommend this pedal to anyone looking for that Tubescreamer sound... If that's not your thing, you'd probably be better off with either the BD-2 Blues Driver, or the OD-3 Overdrive.

Had one of these for years - it got overlooked eventually in my search for 'that' perfect sound - which I'm still looking for - still, I had some trouble playing lead on the neck... Read morePublished 13 months ago by Ric
In my personal opinion this is better than the tube screamer.
Very cheap these days also.
Great unit, works very well, and built with the usual Boss quality. I have a few BOSS pedals all very reliable and durable. One tip, get the power supply as it eats batteries. Read morePublished 16 months ago by Lancashire Lad
