The product price includes a one year warranty and 30 day money back guarantee.

However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 5 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 90 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 5 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

To claim your free pedal simply purchase two Boss Compact Pedals between 1st October - 16th November, take a picture of your receipt and complete the online form at the Boss Website.

BOSS pride themselves on creating original and bold products that allows musicians to create new sounds and develop their individual character. Creativity, innovation and originality are what drive the BOSS pursuit of perfection!

BOSS overdrive and distortion pedals are famous for their rich, aggressive, and expressive sound. The SD-1 Super OverDrive pedal uses BOSS' asymmetric overdrive circuitry for warm, smooth overdrive sounds that respond to your picking style just like a tube amp. The SD-1 includes a Tone control so you can dial in just the right sound.

The AC Adaptor jack enables continuous battery free operation so you'll never be caught short. The clear indicator display shows effect on/off status along with battery check and when you do need to replace the battery the process is quick and easy. The smooth electronic foot switch provides noise-free on/off switching.

Why not try.....

To produce a mild overdrive sound try setting the Drive control at a low level and avoid high tone levels. This is great for a real bluesy sound.

To produce a hard overdrive sound turn the Drive all the way up and boost the highs with the tone control.

To use the SD-1 as a booster set the Drive low and crank the Level all the way up. This means the pedal functions as a gain booster, augmenting amp distortion and providing deep, thick sounds.
