Electric Guitar Effect Pedal

Tube amplifiers enable a wide range of awesome sounds: from soft jazz over the hardest rock all the way to melancholic blues. A tube amp enhances the power of expression of a guitar by highlighting the fine nuances of different guitars, pickups and playing styles. With this pedal, you come very close to the sound of a real tube amp. The BD-2 is also ideal for practising at home as it creates the necessary tube distortion even at lower volumes. That will be a relief for your neighbours.

Back to the essentials

If a no-frills, earthy blues and rock sound is desired, you've come to the right place with the BD-2 Blues Driver. Slight distortion, fat overdrive and soft, silky sustain. The distortion levels can be set with Gain. The setting range covers slightly distorted to the hardest overdrive. Tone Control allows you to set a variety of classic sounds. Overall Level enables the adjustment of overall volume, regardless of the distortion.

  • Bluesy, natural, vintage tube amp sound
  • Reacts to every nuance and volume change

  • Current consumption: 13 mA

BD-2 only OK

themager, 19.04.2015
I find the decay is unnatural - breaks up like a crackling broken speaker - so on long sustaining notes its a bit harsh. As a low gain boost its OK, but I still find it sounds brittle going into a clean sounding amp. I only use it now running a mooer juicer in front of it and it really helps to warm it up. Sounds better with single coils than humbuckers in my opinion.

Best mid gain mid/cheap overdrive

14.07.2016
Well, yeh its great for blues, not as humped and retains more bass than a TS, I would say it has more character in its break up than a TS, the BD2 is transparent but much better for core tone than a TS, in fact aTS stacked into the front of this and you can get metal tone. TS is better for boosting an already driven sound but this can still do that. Iwanted one of these for 20 years, but never got around to it, until now and I must say I love it. I use it on 75% - 100% gain as a midgain sound in a prog metal band, I have lots of mid gain pedal and out of the 9 i have the only 2 i prefer cost 150-200 euro each and they are only better due to more eq options, but dont be fooled this pedal can do many styles especially stacked with other good pedal. Quality is usual Boss standard, I am not usually a fan of Boss drive pedal, they seem a bit sterile to me, but this has a very natural amp like sound and response best Boss drive and one of the best for stacking be it as pre gain boost, post volume boost , or core tone being boosted by another OD pedal in the front.

EDIT: my pedal has recently started to die randomly while playing, volume drops out sometimes suddenly, sometimes gradually, i am certain it is just my pedal, but not so sure i trust bosses mega robust reputation now, shame i love the sound of this pedal, marked quality to 3 as result
