SD-1: Super Overdrive pedal

Here's a great way to get a very natural, overdriven tube amp sound out of your rig - at a very special YAMS price. Emmett Young is determined to beat out a famous online retailer - and you can walk out of the store with the box, with no shipping cost!

Come by the store and check out the SD-1, or any of the other Boss pedals we have in stock!


The SD-1 Super OverDrive pedal produces the warm, natural distortion of an overdriven tube amplifier while maintaining the subtle nuances of a player's picking technique. This is one of BOSS' more subtle and smooth overdrive pedals, perfect for blues and rock.

  • Compact overdrive pedal with warm, smooth overdriven sounds

  • Unique asymmetric overdrive circuitry for a classic, natural tube amp growl

  • Tone control provides precise adjustment of drive sound

  • BOSS 5-year warranty

ML-2: Metal Core potent distortion pedal

Meet the ML-2 Metal Core pedal, a small footprint stompbox that produces the raw sound metalheads are looking for..... and at the traditionally low YAMS price. Come by and check it out!

With its extreme gain, the ML-2 is the most potent and heavy distortion pedal ever created by BOSS. It easily delivers massive distortion and gain with heavy lows for playing Nu Metal, Grind Core, Industrial, Hard Core, or any genre that requires crushing sound. The ML-2’s ferocious and biting tone will complement and cut through any blast beats your rhythm section can create.

  • Ultra-heavy distortion with sharp-edged attack for crushing metal riffs

  • LOW control for heavy, low frequency sound a la 7-string guitar or dropped tuning

  • HIGH control for screaming, metallic tone

  • Road-tough BOSS metal construction
