Boss SD-1 Super Overdrive Pedal

Since its release in 1981, the workhorse SD-1 Super Overdrive has been the core gain pedal for generations of players across every musical genre. Based around the revolutionary asymmetrical clipping circuit from the OD-1 Overdrive—one of the three original BOSS compact pedals from 1977—the SD-1 delivers rich, smooth, and highly musical overdrive tones that continue to inspire guitarists everywhere.

  • Genre-defining BOSS overdrive sound
  • Unique asymmetrical clipping circuit produces tube-like overdrive characteristics
  • Mild-to-moderate drive tones with focused midrange and tight low end
  • Ideal for use with clean and slightly driven amps
  • Also works great for bringing tightness and definition to high-gain amp tones
  • Stacks well with boost, overdrive, and distortion pedals
  • BOSS five-year warranty

The Clipping Circuit That Defined “Overdrive”

In 1977, BOSS created an entirely new stompbox category with the OD-1, bringing natural overdrive in pedal form to guitarists for the very first time. Producing a signal rich in even-order harmonics, its unique asymmetric clipping circuit replicated the pleasing sound and feel of a driven tube amp—but at controllable volume levels. Four years later, this breakthrough design evolved into the more versatile SD-1, which added an active tone control for shaping the treble response and subtle enhancements for more low-end body.

Overdrive Perfection

The SD-1 allows players from beginner to pro to get inspiring sounds right away. Thanks to its natural behavior and the subtle mid boost that’s part of its design, it’s easy to use. It gives your tone a push where it matters most, ensuring your guitar always sits perfectly in the mix with warmth, clarity, and rich presence. Lower drive settings are great for rhythm parts, while higher settings are ideal for fat, singing leads. The SD-1 is also very sensitive to input gain. So, you can dial in different shades of overdrive simply by adjusting your guitar’s volume control.

The One Pedal Every Player Needs

With organic character, plus responsive drive and tone controls, the SD-1 delivers for almost any style of music. Kick on the pedal with your favorite clean or slightly driven amp for a mild-to-moderate overdrive. It’s ideal for everything – from classic rock and gritty blues to pop, country, jazz, and beyond. The SD-1 also shines as a booster for high-gain amps and other drive pedals. It provides mid focus, tight bass, and smooth top end that’s perfectly suited for heavier sounds and solo playing.
