I have too many overdrive pedals, some of them higher-end boutique models. I just keep coming back to this one, it’s very natural sounding, very glassy and warm but with a good amount of gain if wanted. Sounds amazing with a strat/tele and a tube amp. The low-end is prominent, works great with my Blues Jr.

Like one of the other comments it does produce a great tube sound. Sounds good from a very cheap amp to my marshall stack.

Perhaps the only drawback to this offering by BOSS is that it can be TOO loud! Very powerful; not the widest range of gain, but can certainly bring muscle to your sound.

I have it...and it is a killer overdrive. Not going to find better bang for buck. Even price range aside, this product will go up against overdrives double it's price. It has very tube-amp like feel when playing and tone. If you're looking for a simple but very good overdrive, look no further. It's my go to pedal every gig.
