I just recieved an OD-1 from my guitar teacher as a going away present to university. He said it had too grungy/hard of a tone for him because he plays mainly country and has no need for it. I was wondering exactly how much it is worth? If it is a good pedal although it only has volume/gain?

Lastly, unlike newer boss pedals, is it common for this one to have the "check" light only switch on when it's pressed on? It does not stay lit like newer BOSS pedals when it's on. Should I take it apart and look inside?

The check lights on my Boss TU-2 and DS-1 are only on when they're engaged, so I'd say it's normal.

Being an Overdrive, it's kind of obvious that it's more for overdriving an amp (which is why it's so damn loud when played on the clean channel). Though, these do make some nice OD tones when you crank the "drive" knob. Won't have a great amount of gain, though.

Thanks for your help but

This is NOT what mine does. Mine only turns on when I step on the pedal, then the light goes off as soon as i release my foot ALTHOUGH the pedals is engaged.
