The BOSS ODB-3 is an aggressive, new-age style pedal, which although called an overdrive, in reality is much more!
It's a compact effect pedal, straight forward and easy to use. We do not see it as a pure overdrive, as it can roar and scream as a distortion too once the gain knob crosses the 12 O'Clock mark. But a great thing about the ODB-3 is, that even at maximum gain, it retains its clarity and focus, thus, cuts right through the mix!
If you play Punk, Hard Rock, Trash, Metal and anything really that requires an "in your face" gain sound, be sure to check the BOSS ODB-3 out.
