Boss BD-2 Overdrive

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.

Great Pedal

13.10.2016
Very good quality and versatile pedal - can be used as a tubescreamer type pedal but can go up to much more gain for blues/rock soloing. Can also be used as a booster in setups with more pedals. The build is classic Boss.

If it aint blues, drive on.

SeanD, 01.06.2013
The blues driver has been the center of my sound for over ten years now, and after ten years of absolute murder and abuse, being chucked in and out of bags, dropped and thrown on floors, jumped and stamped on(in the heat of the moment you do these things), and even drowned in various liquids, i had to finally buy a new one. Now, it still works, but there's a tiny rattle in it; so she's being put out to pasture when it comes to recording, but for rehearsing, she'll always have a place on my board .
My new blues driver sounds great, as i knew it would, and performs great. I'm looking forward to another ten years of mayhem with my new blues driver.
