I had a keeley modded sd-1 the 5 star Ge mod and it turned a good pedal great!!! They are like $139 modded or you can always get the pedal and mod it later. The Mod is worth every penny!!! I wish I still had mine!!! Damn you G.A.S!!!

I'll be making some Timmy clones in the coming days, waiting on some enclosures. I don't have an SD-1 any more (apart from in the GP-8) because it was in the box that I lost which also contained several mikes and numerous other pedals. I'm intending to use the Timmy where I would normally have used the SD-1. This is just on my pedalboard that I use for harp and just screwing around on my Marshalls and Fender. So I'll have two overdives on it, a TS808 clone and a Timmy clone.


i found the ts a bit middy with most of my amps for rhythm tones. of course, maybe i should have just dialled in the amp to be less middy And it's possible the sd1 is more fluid, as i said, i only had time for a quick try with it.

ts and timmy is a good combo, though.

Well, Dave, you know me. Leave a tubescreamer with me for more than 5 minutes and I'll mod the bass back in. My tubescreamers are never like normal ones.

that might be it i'd say it's the mids more than the bass, but then more bass relative to those mids might achieve the same effect, i.e. make the mids seem less prominent.

EDIT: speaking of the timmy and tubescreamer- did you see that thread over on tgp about using either as a boost for metal? bunch of responses saying the timmy is the wrong tool for the job. i really wonder sometimes about tgp. they don't even play metal and think the timmy can't be used as a metal boost, and i've lost count of the amount of times i've seen them recommending mid gain drives (e.g. ocd) for metal.

I stay away from TGP. They make my head hurt with all their "mojo" bullshit.


It's lack of bass that makes them mids heavy. Turn up the tone control and they have plenty of top end - so where does the mid hump come from? Lack of bass.

Adding to this thread, as a standalone OD it works pretty well.
Especially considering the price.

I know there are other, even cheaper and sometimes even better sounding TS clones, but they aren't as solidly built as Boss pedals from what I've seen so far.

yeah (assuming my daphon is actually a clone) its standalone od tone is pretty good. more marshally than a ts or something like that. I could use it for ac/dc or something like that.

To me it works pretty well for ZZ Top type tones.

Digitech Bad Monkey is a way better TS voiced/mid hump low-mid gain overdrive, and dirt cheap to boot. A much better proposition than an SD1. To me at least. All the best.
