The BOSS SD-1 Super Overdrive pedal produces the warm, natural distortion reminisant to a beautifully overdriven tube amplifier while maintaining the characteristics of the player's picking technique.
This is one of more subtle and smooth BOSS overdrive pedals from the range so would be ideal for adding a little bit of grit to those Blues or Rock style riffs.
The amount of grit you want to add is easily dialled in and tweaked with the Level, Tone and Drive knobs. Level adjusts the overall output of the drive which along with your guitars volume knob can help to really clean up the amount of dirt in the mix. The tone knob acts more as an EQ with the spectrum going from very bass like with lots of low end, all the way to a more treble orientated sound. Finally the Drive knob is how you control the gain that is blended into the mix so you can achieve both subtle and heavy drives.
