Hi from a early thread about boosting i have considerd the Boss SD-1. I have read many reviews and they have all said boosting it with there amp overdrive i know this seems stupid but i was wondering if you can use it with ur amp distortion, because im very happy with the overdrive and distortion sounds it just need to be thicker. Im curruntly in a tharsh core metal band (www.myspace.com/conjuringvengeance) so i will be playing real heavy stuff and i was wondering if it will make my sound a lot more thicker and more sustaine. Also from reading reviews i have read that its bypass isnt grate i was just wondering how bad it actually is but hopefully i will be able to try it out this wednesdday.

Thanks in advance

You mean the Boss Metal Zone or the Boss Metalcore? Thats a big no-no. I would get a Metal Muff and a Maxon OD-9 or if you have pretty nice amp OD, I would just get the OD-9 to tighten the lower end. The SD-1 might be able to do that, but i've never played one before.

if you like your overdrice and disto chanels maybe get a graphic eq to thicken the guitars signal before it gets into the amp.

I have a Boss SD-1, its great for solos, and thats the only thing i use it for. It gives your tone great clarity over the distortion, and it makes pinch harmonics squeal wonderfully. It also makes your sustain longer. However, whenever i used it as a boost, (not sure if i did it correctly) it kinda sucked my tone. Don't take my word on that one, just try it out in a shop. Its a great pedal for what it costs, though.
Sigs are too hard to think up

I, and every other member on this website that actually know stuff, am very happy for you. Metal Zone's are utter shit, they don't really work well for anything.
