      Comments about Boss OD-1X Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

      I have never experienced an overdrive FX that could do so much and sound like a match-made-in-heaven with a variety of guitare and amps. I have tried this with a Strat, ES-335, flying V metal guitar through Fender princeton reverb, small solid state marshall and even through a PA. They all sounded FANTASTIC !

      The market for OD pedals has exploded even more in these last 5 years. The reason for this is simply besace of the explosion of cheap guitare and amp gears. All thèse million of OD pedals really do is tweak the EQ differently, and add more options. This one has not only done this, but for whatever reason it sounds just great throough this variety of amps and guitare.

      What I like the most about it is that I no longer have to change the settings for different style / songs. All I do is switch pickups, pick atatcked, volume control on the guitare and I get this wide range fo sweet OD to fit all my styles.

      Comments about Boss OD-1X Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

      I bought the OD 1-X to replace a 1980 MIJ Super Overdrive that I thought was emitting a low level hum (which turned out to be a bad Boss power adaptor)
      Guitar Player magazine was correct, the OD 1-X may look similar, and both are called overdrive, but they are different beasts. The OD 1-X is clearer, with less midrange, better EQ control and higher output, but slightly less gain and sustain, which can be compensated for by turning up the gain.
      I use an overdrive as my crunch and lead sound, as opposed to using it to goose an already overdriven amp. The OD 1-X would work really well for those seeking a boost.
      Overall I am happy with the OD 1-X, who knows maybe both will end up on my pedal board.
      It is nice to have a bass control, because my SD1 seems to lose bass response compared to when it is turned off.

            I didn't find the sound I was looking for with this. Anything past 12 o'clock and it goes into garbage tone. Disappointed and wasted money. Should have just got the super overdrive.
