DS-2 TURBO Distortion

BOSS

collapse expand iconDescription

The BOSS DS-2 Turbo Distortion pedal is a powerful stompbox with twin distortion modes for sculpting your tone. The DS-2's Turbo Mode I produces a warm, creamy distortion ideal for chords and rhythm playing, with a flat frequency response for natural-sounding crunch. Turbo Mode II delivers a searing, mid-boosted distortion perfect for soaring leads and solos that cut through the mix. Connect an FS-5L footswitch to the built-in remote jack for instant switching between modes, keeping your hands free to play. With the DS-2, you get two pedals in one—all from the legendary engineers at BOSS.

Turbo Mode I: Thick and Smooth

engage Turbo Mode I for a full, rounded distortion equally suited to chords and single notes. Its flat frequency response adds girth without coloring your tone, preserving the natural voice of your pickups. Dial in just a touch of gain for a hint of breakup, or crank it up for a saturated crunch—the DS-2 delivers exceptional clarity and touch sensitivity at any setting.

Turbo Mode II: Searing Mid-Boosted Lead Tone

Switch to Turbo Mode II and unleash a searing distortion optimized for solos and lead playing. A pronounced midrange bump brings your most expressive phrases to the forefront of the mix, with a tight, focused tone that cuts through loud bands or noisy stages. The DS-2's dedicated Level control allows you to match the volume of the two modes, ensuring a consistent output whether you're playing rhythm or leads.

Hands-Free Switching With Remote Jack

Connect an FS-5L footswitch to the DS-2's remote jack for instant switching between its twin Turbo modes. Keep your hands on the frets and stomp between your choice of distortion flavors in an instant. The remote jack also allows you to control an external effect or amp channel at the same time as toggling the DS-2 between modes, streamlining your pedalboard setup.
