    The OD-3 is one of my favorites, although I don't have one right now. I'm not sure how to compare it to a Blues Driver, but it's different enough I would probably use both and not consider the OD-3 a direct replacement for the BD-2. The OD-3 adds less mids than a TS9/808 or SD-1. It also retains some bottom, but cuts more highs than the BD-2, IMHO. I'm using an EHX Hot Wax dual overdrive right now and I think I could easily replace it with an OD-3 and BD-1. But the Hot Wax works well for me, so I won't ;)

    In any case, the OD-3 and BD-2 are both great pedals and more versatile that TS pedals or some older Boss overdrives. Those pedals have places where they excel, but the OD-3 and BD-2 are certainly more versatile, again IMHO.

    I hope you like it. I like mine quite a lot. It was the first OD I really bonded with.

    I just put it on board and used it a bit....nice for my tastes.i don't want it for main overdrive as I use my amp for that.so it boosts my Laney VC 15 with less highs than BD-2 and less mids than SD-1... it's.i see us together for long time

    Congrats on the OD-3!! It was the first Boss dirt pedal I actually liked. Haven't been a huge fan of Boss dirt in general, but they have grown on me as I have learned to use and/or mod them.

    Enjoy!!
