I would like the Waza SD-1W to see how much improved the circuit is on regular SD-1 setting. the custom setting I don't care about.So.. *commence rant*
y'all saw me have an incoming of a Boss OD-3 last week, THEE pedal I've been waiting to own for years. Finally got my pedal and put it on my board after my SD-1. Straight honest, not sure how I feel about it after being super excited over owning one for so long.
Y'all are right, it truly does have a more amp like response, but it kind of feels flat in comparison to it's SD-1 sibling. Maybe that's what it's supposed to do EQ wise..? I've been trying it through my clean channels (Boogie Mark IIIs, JCM 2000 DSL 50/100, Dual Rectifier Rev G). I'm years in to having the response of the SD-1 so take it what it's worth. That pedal keeps everything (literally) TIGHT, while the OD-3 doesn't seem to hold the bottom very well..at all. It's very LOUD when engaged. I'll keep it on my board for a little more experimentation. It does A LOT better stacked. Certainly can't see that OD-3 as a stand alone always on.
I also have an anniversary black SD-1 that I've not yet to run with my ole Taiwanese SD-1. That may be the better answer after all ...in tandem with my MXR 10 Band EQ 3. So much control in that regard.
Anyways, here's a perfect to each their own scenario
