Boss is celebrating the anniversaries of two iconic pedals this year with some pretty nice-looking reissues.
The SD-1 Super Overdrive turns 40 this year, while the MT-2 Metal Zone turns 30. Both will be reissued as the SD-1-4A Super Overdrive and MT-2-3A Metal Zone pedals, housed in all-black casings and featuring a vintage silver thumbscrew for the battery compartments. Both reissues will also come in commemorative boxes and will only be available for one year.
Tonally they’re no different than any other versions of the pedal, so it’s probably pretty clear already whether you’re on board with these or not. Though really, I think the SD-1-4A Super Overdrive looks pretty cool in an all-black configuration. The MT-2-3A Metal Zone looks nice too, but it’s also a Metal Zone and I could never find a place in my heart for it.
The SD-1 Super Overdrive is available for $59.99, while the MT-2-3A Metal Zone is available for $112.99.
