Why didn't I buy one 20 years ago??? Just saying. Share the love
I love my OD3. Its been my main drive pedal for 4 years now, but they are radically different than an OD/SD1.a few years ago I picked up a used OD3, its better than the od-1, its a great drive, excellent for boosting a solo/lead part especially
But I've read of lots of people who have given up on Mesa amps or Timmy pedals within 5 minutes because 'the knobs set at noon' didn't sound perfect to them. RTFM may open up options for those people, but there are lots of suppliers to source 'sounds good at noon' equipment, I guess. Mesa et al ain't missing the business, from what I can tell.Good design should not require needing to consult a manual to make a 3-knob pedal sound good. Boss has built the reputation and following they have because they do their best to stick to that principle. That's part of why Josh "JHS" Smith likes them so much.
