The Boss OD-3 Overdrive Pedal is a powerful, dual-stage overdrive pedal that can be used to provide all of your overdriven lead and rhythm tones, or can act as a booster for upping the gain on tube amps. This is the 'fullest' sounding overdrive pedal in the Boss arsenal to date. The OD3 is sonically somewhere between the SD-1 Overdrive and the DS-1 distortion when the drive is cranked up. It is still more along the lines of rock and heavy blues (like the SD-1) rather than being a metal players pedal, but it does pack much more of a punch than the SD-1, and can be used to push high-gain amps through the roof.

The incredible compression and sustain achieved with the Boss OD-3 produce a huge tone that has a very full bass response and very natural response to dynamics. If you want the overdrive sounds of classic amp stacks, this pedal is going to give it in droves. You can expect a crisp overdrive sound that'll respond dynamically to every nuance of your performance. This is a real players pedal, offering simplicity and reliability in place of over the top 'FX' sounds, so your tone is always full.

In classic Boss Compact pedal style, the Boss OD-3 Overdrive Pedal has a road-ready metal chassis with simple, powerful controls that let you get the best results. Drive gives you control of the amount of overdrive 'break-up' you get, Tone gives you control of your presence and top-end bite, while Level lets you set the relative output level so you can choose how much the output signal is boosted when the pedal is engaged.
