Manufactured: 1982-1985

The SD-9 is what a the Tube Screamer would sound like if it was a distortion pedal. Backed off it does a pretty convincing Tube Screamer impersonation but when the distortion is dialled up the clipping diodes kick and in it sizzles like a fuzz. Chords remain punchy and clear - A great distortion pedal!
