1977 — OD-1 OverDrive

As one of BOSS' first compact effects pedals, the OD-1 OverDrive offered a number of “firsts,” including silent FET switching to eliminate pops and clicks, non-skid rubber panels on top and bottom, a quick-access battery compartment, recessed knobs and unsurpassed sound quality... But most importantly, the OD-1 also rocked, thanks to its smooth responsive overdrive tones that guitarists couldn't resist.
