Good pedal, in my opinion

JohnLV, 30.07.2018
For years of playing acoustic, about a year ago starting to play electric, I wanted to get an overdrive pedal to get that nice sound you hear in so many songs. Immediately, I started looking at Boss's pedals because I've heard so much good about them. I'm not disappointed, it is a high quality pedal. First off the build is very...durable? It seems like you could smash it against concrete and it wouldn't break. On the features - there aren't that many, but for the price I'm not complaining, it does it's job. You can get a decent sound of hard overdrive (for playing metal, for example) and it still sounds pretty clear, not just a bunch of chaos. You can also get a nice rock n' roll vibe to the sound, it's great. Like I mentioned, I'm not a pedal expert by any means, but I'd recommend it to a friend, it's a great little pedal.

Versatile and good rocksolid pedal.

João Nunes, 27.11.2017
Use:
- I use this pedal as a booster and for light/medium distortion. Works excellent with a Fender Stratocaster and less excellent with a Les Paul (Epiphone Custom Pro).
Pros:
- "Bulletproof" very robust.
- Great value for the money.
- Works very good as a Booster, with the Drive knoob set to 0, (very happy with this feature).
- Good light/medium tube distortion (a mixture of AC/DC, Eric Clapton, Hendrix and David Gilmour kind of sound).
- Loud.
- Simple.
- Trustworthy.
- Beautiful.
- They say he needs batteries or 9V power suply but I have been jammin' for 2 days with him only connected to the amp so I assume that has batteries included (on the inside, not checked wet).
Cons:
- The sound is good but not excellent. However, I have been using him in an 8'' speaker and maybe thats why...

Overall very good pedal, sounds better with a Stratocaster in comparison with a Les Paul, but thats totaly subjective. 100% recommend this pedal. Good job Boss!
