Boss DS-2 Distortion

Guitar Effects Pedal

The BOSS DS 2 is an enhanced version of the already classic of the genre, the DS 1. It delivers this time - in comparison to the legendary overdrive pedals from BOSS - a considerably rougher and more aggressive distortion, which is clearly oriented towards the British amp stack sound, yet still far away from the earlier rather toneless fuzz distortion of the past. In addition, the DS-2 has a second mode that enables yet more aggressive sounds. You can use both options live, as there is an extra jack for a foot switch with which to switch between modes. Extremely flexible!

  • Distortion
  • 2 Sound modes for a wide spectrum for distortion
  • From distorted riff-rock via earthy rock sounds, up to to singing lead sounds
  • Turbo mode can also be activated via an additional footswitch on the remote jack (Foot switch not included)
  • Power consumption: 12 mA
  • Powered with a 9V battery or a 9V DC power supply (coaxial connector - negative terminal inside - not included in delivery, e.g. Article Nr 108096)
  • Dimensions (WxDxH): 73 x 129 x 59 mm
  • Weight: 400 g

The Strat Distortion Pedal

26.02.2014
I own this effect for a few years an I still like it. In connection with my Stratocaster it produce a unique distortion sound like no other pedal. You get the legendary Frusicante Sound which has so many fans all over the world. But i have a few problems with the pedal without using it on the road. After a few month I have to repair the input because of a loose screw. Another important point is that I do not like the sound in connection with a Les Paul. I can not really explain it, but it sounds not good to me. I would recommend it for every Frusciante Fan and Strat user but Les Paul players should test it very good before buying.

Definetly worth a try.

Johan1418, 23.12.2013
I have to say that I first dindn't fully know what to expect from this pedal. I was familiar with the Boss brand before, of course, having had a Boss ME-70 Multi-effect board, but i hadn't tried out a single distortion stompbox before this one. However, I am happy to say that it lived up to my expectations.

It is easy to handle and the middle boost gives you enough options to play everything from Bluesrock to the shredding guitar solos of both Heavy- and Thrash-metal. If it's combined with a sustain pedal the distortion value also goes to another level.
The only not so positive thing worth mentioning is the sound quality, which sounds a bit digital at low volume level, but when turning it up a bit it creates a powerful distortion, worth playing with at your band practice, live and in the studio (Yes, I have made some home recordings using the Boss DS-2 pedal).

So, the conclusion is that; if you want a distortion pedal that is easy to handle, has a good tone for live playing and practicing etc. and still affordable, then the Boss DS-2 is one for you.
