Boss BD-2 Overdrive

524

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.

A worthy addition to your board!
The Tone Lounge 01.01.2021
I test a lot of pedals on my YouTube channel, and this one was highly requested. I've always associated BOSS with a brand that everyone has on their board at some point. I've owned a few, and although never exceptional they are always great.

I bought the BD-2 without having much expectations. I plugged it in and was hit with a fantastic tone, although very bright. Now the brightness can be controlled and it isn't a bad thing. It's not ice picky, just a bit brighter than I expected. I keep the tone knob at around 9 o'clock to keep everything balanced.

I own some expensive, rare and boutique pedals, and this thing keeps up with all of them. So much so, in fact, that I am contemplating getting rid of some of my pedals and keeping this one as my "transparent" OD.

Tested with:
- Vox AC15C1
- Vox AC4
- 1966 Gibson GA-15RVT

Works very well
Jamez999 01.02.2020
Bought this for a bit more tone from my Epiphone SG and it works very well with everything set to about a third. It's actually quite versatile and will give you more overdrive if you increase the knob settings. Works fine inline with other pedals too. Comes with a battery but can be used with a 9v transformer which I do. Only thing is, if you use a transformer and there is a battery installed it can behave unpredictably so use one or the other but not both. Pedal is well made and easy to use. Recommended.

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.

Awesome cheap blues pedal
TheGausdal 11.02.2022
This pedal was something I bought to start out with, but has ended up being on mye pedal board for years!

Ive used it for both a lead sound and rhythm, and the pedal can handle both pretty well.

10/10 recommend for a budget pedal!!
