The overdrive sound has been one of the most important and characteristic sound of Dawnstar. Attila Wind started using overdrive effects when he purchased his first multi-effect pedal, the Zoom 505II, on 10 July 2001.
On 5 April 2008, Attila Wind purchased his first individual overdrive pedal, the Boss SD-1. Since then the Boss SD-1 has been the main overdrive effect of Dawnstar's sound.
