BOSS OD-1 Overdrive Pedal Made in Japan 1986
The Boss OD-1 Overdrive was one of the first 3 Boss compact pedals produced (along with the PH-1 and SP-1). The OD-1 was released in a time when fuzz and distortion were the go-to choice for guitarists and overdrive was considered to be too underwhelming. The OD-1 and was originally planned to be a distortion effect, however the designer decided on the smooth, clear overdrive that can be dialled from a crisp clean boost up to a warm crunch. The OD-1 was one of the first pedals to use the term "Overdrive", with pedals prior to this generally being referred to as "soft distortion" (such as the OD-880).
This one features the JRC4558DD chip and was made in 1986, making it a rare late Japanese model (as it was previously thought that they were only made until 1985).
This is a used pedal and may show some signs of wear, but is fully functional.
This pedal is available in store at Guitar Village Frankston 50 minutes south of Melbourne.
