    Comments about Boss SD-1W Super Overdrive Waza Craft Guitar Effects Pedal:

    One amazing overdrive. Compared to the Ibanez 808 this is sounds better it gets cleaner and way more drive in the custom mode. It's even less money. If you love that tone for your overdrive this is a must-have. Is it worth more than a sd1 YES!!!!!!!!

    Comments about Boss SD-1W Super Overdrive Waza Craft Guitar Effects Pedal:

    Played with a good quality like the early tone king amp, black faced fender and nice with a blues Jr. too. The custom switch adds a slight boost in-between 1.5 to 2 k. range, the harmonic sweet spot on good Valve / tube amplifiers. There are better pedals out there like the Landgraff stuff for example but were talking almost 5 big ones Boss still make some good quality that last a long time. worst case the momentary switch might have to be replaced (3 George Washingtons) and 5 minutes to do. I'd like to see Boss do a WAZA Dual compressor with the same quality as the SlideRig compressor at a Boss price (Bonnie Ratt in a can) Back to the Overdrive? you'll be very happy with this OD pedal Guaranteed! classic rock, bluz, country and it just may be a good stacker with your favorite TS pedal.

    Stop looking at it... and buy it

    Pros

    • easy to use, sounds really good

    Cons

      Best Uses

      • to drive a hard driven pre-amp even harder

      Comments about Boss SD-1W Super Overdrive Waza Craft Guitar Effects Pedal:

      I have went to rock concerts and thought wow...how do they get that guitar tone. Well here it is. This thing will set a Marshall pre-amp on fire. If you have a Jcm 800 amp or a jvm410h (crunch channel) use this unit to drive the pre-amps harder and you have serious tone for metal or classic rock.

      Comments about Boss SD-1W Super Overdrive Waza Craft Guitar Effects Pedal:

      This pedal is beautiful and sounds better than it ever has. However, you should spend plenty of time working with the tone knob to dial it in exactly where you like it. Minute turns of the knob allow for many sweet spots, and tonal differences. In my ears, this unit has a huge lower-midrange "push". Try cutting this back some by turning the tone to the left. Somewhere between 9 o'clock and 11 o'clock sounds very usable to me. Also remember, you should review the tone settings on both your axe and amp as well. Readjust everything just a little bit and you will find it's best use with your rig.
