I was looking around at ODs trying to decide what to get and stumbled across this pedal on sale at L&M for a hundred bucks, down from one-seventy. Out of stock but I guess they get them on backorder. Ordered one so we'll see!

Anyway, I didn't find ANYTHING on this forum about them despite that they've been around a while, but they seem to have pretty stellar reviews and sound like they're a different sort of beast than most ODs out there. Higher-def in a good way & highly responsive etc. They look pretty swank too!

FYI...

Yeah it's digital, so I was going to stay away from it as well, until reading some reviews. It's not supposed to be a digital version of the OD-1, it's supposed to be a whole new thing. From one review:

  • Without abusing hyperbole, the Boss OD-1X sounds unlike any overdrive available today. Whether used as an independent distortion source or to run into and overdrive a preamp, most overdrive effects work best as an integrated part of an ecosystem, with terms like “transparent” or “focused” as the typical descriptors. The OD-1X, however, sounds so present and lively on its own due to its responsiveness and dynamic voicing that it has an uncanny “plugged straight into the amp” feel. At lower gain settings, the OD-1X has touch-sensitive grit that is tube-like and extremely expressive; it feels alive. As the gain is turned up, subtle EQ shifts happen to compliment the overall gain structure while the pedal remains open, uncompressed, and harmonically rich.
The more reviews you read, the more they all say the same kind of thing ... kinda looking forward to this thing eventually arriving:)

Looks like the sale's over tho, fyi:(
