Damn, to think I only got $25 off ebay for my "vintage" SD-1 I need to learn how to lie....

I email that guy I saw thar bid on ebay I bid $10.I just wrote him that I had aSD-1 from Gozo for sale $1000. poor vodoship the winner.

Nope, not kidding.
There are crappy sounding new boss SD-1 pedals (~$30), and there are old, good sounding boss SD-1 pedals.
You get what you pay for. Crack open a new one and you will not find the old capacitors or the old JRC 4558 chip. Both are well-known among tone freaks.
Also, collectors prefer the black label, MIJ versions, and one that is mint with a box.
This one had it all - I honestly thought it would go for over a $100 easily.

I just bought one with the JRC4458 chip for $60 on ebay. Overpriced, but I needed a backup for the one I already had.

If I had $60 to spend on this pedal, I'd only give $59, so I would have a buck left to buy a decent bifet op amp to replace that cheap JRC4558.
(I've got a stock of "NOS" JRC4558s. I've modded many Tube Screamers and Boss overdrives. In each one, I put in a socket and give the owner a TL072 and a JRC4558. In the feedback I've gotten in the last 15 years or so, not one preferred the JRC4558.)
