OD-1X; taking the Boss overdrive you know and love roaring into the modern era with incredible expression and a peerless level of performance.

Special Edition Boss OverDrive

Combining over 40 years of technical knowledge, pedal design innovation and cutting edge technology, this next generation Boss OverDrive pedal delivers a new tonal experience that only Boss could bring you.

Boss X Series Technology

When designing the X Series pedals, Boss wanted to deliver something truly special. To that end, an incredible amount of research and development was put in to creating the proprietary Boss MDP chip, allowing for Multi-Dimensional Processing.

Multi-Dimensional Processing, or “MDP” for short, allows the pedal to analyse your performance and adapt its own output to your playing.

With the OD-1X, you get overdrive unlike any other pedal you may have tried. Try some heavy riffing and the OD-1X gives you flawless, fat tones. Slip into some chord strumming and you’ll get the smoothest transparent grind. Really dig in and it roars.

The MDP technology allows the OD-1X to naturally follow the dynamics of your performance, with the tonal character and amount of overdrive perfectly complementing your playing, giving you an unprecedented degree of subtlety and nuance.

The combined input from the world’s greatest guitarists and the engineers at Boss has produced an incredibly musical, inspiring and exciting technology in the Boss X Series pedals.

Incredible Overdrive Sound

Being a special edition Boss overdrive pedal, the all-new design gives you a much superior playing experience that you just cannot get from an analogue overdrive pedal.

With the real-time processing thanks to the OD-1X’s digital technology you get a rich, and wide tonal range with natural compression while the unique characteristics of your guitar and pickups are beautifully preserved.

Thanks to the painstaking and meticulous work from the good people at BOSS, the OD-1X pedal has extremely low noise levels so you get beautifully clear signal – even when you are at the highest gain settings.

Solid, Intuitive Design

At the top of the pedal you will find four knobs, giving you full control over your sonic output- LEVEL, LOW, HIGH and DRIVE. Thanks to the recessed control panel design that Boss incorporates on their compact guitar pedals there’s no danger of accidentally knocking your settings when you’re rocking out on stage.

The thick chrome control plate is very sturdy and gives the pedal a nice, classy look along with exclusive chrome knobs that haven’t been seen on Boss pedals before.

A silver screw secures the battery compartment, paying tribute to the original Boss stompbox pedals released back in the 1970s.

Also, being Boss guitar pedals, the robust all-metal chassis is nigh on indestructible and is perfect for taking on the road.

Delivering a huge, bold tone with an unprecedented response to your playing, the OD-1X is overdrive like you’ve never experienced before and is essential for the guitarist who holds their tone paramount.
