Got a good deal on a mint SD-1 on Reverb. Total price was $30 and it might as well be brand new. I’ve had SD-1s before over the years, including the Waza variants. Great classic drive, Boss’ superior Tube Screamer, imho. But this one is different from my prior SD-1s: There’s now a lot of empty space inside! This one was made in November of 2018 according to the serial. I’m happy to report that this one sounds as good as any of the other SD-1s I’ve had over the years, which includes the Waza and an old black label MIT. So if anyone is anti SMT, this one sounds the same as the rest. I can’t mod it, granted, but I don’t want to. I’ve had modded SD-1s over the years too, and the stock has always been better for my needs. Just thought I’d share the gut shots. I had heard the DS-1 and BD-2 were SMT but hadn’t realized the SD-1 was too now. I really don’t care about SMT, it’s all the same to me, but I do wonder what’s keeping Boss from going mini with some of their pedals now that they can shrink the guts so much, I’d love some mini Boss stuff!!!
