Versatility at its finest...

By Will

from Lakeland, Fl

Comments about Boss OS-2 Overdrive/Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

This is a great pedal. I have owned it for about 6 months and I never get tired of what I can do with it. If you want distortion you've got it, although when cranked to just distortion it gives you an early Metallica sound. When just over drive its warm and and heavy. the only draw back is that sometimes when strumming it can be a tad muffled. If you mixed them together its a nice heavy distortion. I use it mainly for distortion but will add a bit of overdrive to fatten out the sound and bring a little more bass. Over all this a great pedal and if you need versatility I highly recommend it.

Finding the Right Distortion

By KennethBisson

from Cleveland, OH

Comments about Boss OS-2 Overdrive/Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

For starters, the Boss OS-2 pedal has more features than most pedals for the price. Also, it's Boss, it will never break. In most cases, it provides sufficient distortion. However, with my Gibson SG/Marshall Valvestate, it seems as though I can not always get the desired distortion. Also, if my amp is not loud, the overdrive is very crunchy and not clean. I recommend this pedal for anywhere from light distortion to a heavy crunch overdrive, i.e. ACDC. However, anything more, you may want to mix the distortion from your amp with the pedal or upgrade to a metal pedal. Any questions, email me.

great pedal that you will love

By rocker1

from illinois

Comments about Boss OS-2 Overdrive/Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

i ordered this pedal about a month ago, and im still finding new sounds i can make with it. features- awsome! has 4 knobs on it so it gives you plenty of controll on the sound that you want. Quality-awsome! its boss, so its built like a tank anyone who has played a boss pedal knows that they are built very well Value- this pedal has a lot of value because it takes up less space than 2 pedals and you can get a wide range of sounds from it and overal i love this pedal. the only thing i dont like about this pedal, is that i cant get a heavy distortion out of it, which is exactly what i expected. if you are into rock or hard rock, this pedal is great. sometimes its nice to put it on overdrive and turn the drive knob down, just so you get a little bit of a boost. i play my epiphone g-400 through this pedal out to an alesis wildfire 60 watt

The sound I was looking for!

By Mr. Derp

from Odessa, FL

Comments about Boss OS-2 Overdrive/Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

This is a great pedal. I have had it for about a week now and right out of the box it has nice warm sound. I had purchased a DS-1, but exchanged it for this one to get more versatility out of a pedal with a little less of a "Metal" edge to it. My only knock on this product is that the pedal itself came a little loose and it clicks loudly when I hit it with my foot. I tried tightening the screws, but the actual metal dowel was apparently cut too long, and tightening did not fix the click. Outside of that - it flat out rocks.

tone I've been searching for

By Jeff Toale

from Oakridge N.J.

Comments about Boss OS-2 Overdrive/Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

to put it short and sweet this pedal rocks!!!!I've been playing guitar for over 37 years and tried over 2 dozen overdrive and or distortion pedals and could'nt find any that would give me the tone I was looking for until now.The colour knob is the key to this pedal,it lets me tune into that sweet spot. My fellow band members love my sound more than ever now.Its a great pedal for classic rock,blues,or just about anything you want.The colour knob is the key!I love this pedal and don't know how I played without it for so many years.I highly recommend this pedal for any guitarist!!!!

Great for Strat users

By Antamar

from Granbury, Texas

Comments about Boss OS-2 Overdrive/Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

After buying my MIM Strat, I was on the lookout for a Distortion or Overdrive pedal that would work well with it since my amp seemed to be custom made for a Les Paul. I couldn't be happier with my purchase. When set all the way to Overdrive, with low Drive, it sounds just like a tube amp. When set all the way to Distortion with high Drive, I can play all but the heaviest of nu-metal. It also reduces the annoying 60-cycle hum by a good margin compared to my amp's overdrive. Great buy.

Boss OS-2 Overdrive/Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal

By Joe Garcia

from North Aurora, Illinois

Comments about Boss OS-2 Overdrive/Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

I bought this pedal as a backup for my old one which still works very well to this very day. The first Boss OS-2 Overdrive/Distortion pedal that I bought back in Spring of 1994 has a nice warm overdrive/distorted tone. It sounds really good with either single or humbucking pickups & it's very road worthy which is really important in my book because I do gig out a lot. I just want to say thanks to the Roland Corporation for making really good gear.

Boss OS-2

By Guitar Man

from Tulsa, OK

Comments about Boss OS-2 Overdrive/Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

I originally bought this pedal to use with solid state amp. Both distortion and overdrive are good, not the best, but good. I recently got a tube amp and use it's distortion with the OS-2 all the way on OD side, gain all the way down, level up all the way, and tone about halfway for use as a boost. This pedal is a GREAT boost for lead and rhythm playing. So if you need a pedal for boost or even as your main distortion, this is a good pedal for the price.

distortion to the max!!

By bobsmith123

from woodinville, WA

Comments about Boss OS-2 Overdrive/Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

I bought this pedal a few months ago and I love it. there's not much to it; 4 knobs that control the sound but with those 4 knobs you can get a wide array of distorted sounds, from a warm fuzz that isn't very pitch sensitive to a hard, clear sound that shows the slightest change. this pedal is incredibly easy to use and also has an immediate response to being stomped. buy this pedal! you won't regret it.

Nice overdrive.

By Edward1980

from El Paso TX

Comments about Boss OS-2 Overdrive/Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

Nice distortion, and better overdrive. I think the overdrive sound is better than the superoverdrive pedal sound. It's a very creamy sound with very good range of sustain.

Great Pedal

By TimmyR41

from Mifflinburg, PA

Comments about Boss OS-2 Overdrive/Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

For those of you who don't have room in your pedal board for an overdrive pedal and a distortion pedal the OS-2 is the pedal for you. This pedal can do natural overdrive as well as modern distortion or you can set the dial somewhere in the middle and mix the two. It has 4 knobs that adust the volume level, the tone (high to low) the amount of drive and finally overdrive to distortion. This is a great pedal and for the price you can't go wrong.

Stompbox from Awesomeland

By skakidtim

from Los Angeles, Ca

Comments about Boss OS-2 Overdrive/Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

This thing is great. It can get a great tone and can be played for any type of music that needs that extra BOOST that a channel change cant fulfill. What i love about this the most, is that people pay 100+ for a decent dirstortion, and a decent overdrive, but this little yellow stompbox can be either one of them, or a combination of both, but the catch is, the sound isnt decent....its BEYOND decent. Worth every cent.

By Jeff(guitarman)Osgood

from Woonsocket,R.I.

Comments about Boss OS-2 Overdrive/Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

I bought this used over a month ago from somebody who didn't obviously know what he was doing.This is the best distortion/overdrive pedal that I have ever had!I can get so many different tones out of this,and it is so versatile and well adapted for any kind of music.I don't care much for the Mustard Yellow cover on the casing,but you win some,you lose some.All in all,this is a great pedal,and the price is very affordable.Great job Boss!

Perfect versatility

By Slunklord57

from Harper Woods, MI

Comments about Boss OS-2 Overdrive/Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

The Boss OS-2 pedal is wondrous for your pedalboard. It's got and easy tweakability of parameters on level, clarity, overdrive, and distortion. It takes up as much space as any other Boss pedal, but has a monster amount of force. I use a Digitech Whammy pedal on the octave down setting combined with this and it makes a monster of a sound. I can't describe this pedal much other than brilliance. Buy it and you won't be sorry you had.

perfect in every way

By bradley morris

from salt lake ut.

Comments about Boss OS-2 Overdrive/Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

i didnt even know the true meaning of distortion until i got this pedal, you can have any kind of distortion or overdrive you can think of. from metallica style heavy-distortion to nice whole overdrive, or you can mix them both together to get a calm yet powerful mix between them both.

Great versatlity

By Robert Thompson

from Fresno, Ca.

Comments about Boss OS-2 Overdrive/Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

I recently purchased a Fender Blues Jr. tube amp. It only has one channel, which means that I needed some punch. I bought the OS-2 because it gives an overdrive boost in volume, PLUS distortion. This box does not disappoint! I like how you can adjust it from being all overdrive to half overdrive/distortion to mostly distortion. It is great. I am thinking about getting the Boss Blues Driver which will complement this box nicely. The blues driver works with your strumming giving you a nice crunch when you play hard. A stomp on the OS-2 over the Blues Driver will sound great. Buy this box. You cant beat its versatility with the great price.
