That Clear Sound

By Glenn-657-G

from Fair Oaks, CA

My old Rat distortion box made so much noise besides distortion that I had to cave and replace it. This OS-2 is awesome! Great clear distortion for songs like "Stone in Love" & "No Quarter", and great overdrive sounds for "Crazy Train" and "Sweet Child o' Mine". This is basically 2 boxes in one: an overdrive and a distortion. Always better to have one box than two!

This is THE greatest distortion/overdrive pedal I've ever used (and I've tried around 15-20)

By Constantin Popov

from Sofia, Bulgaria

The BOSS OS-2 is an incredibly versatile effects pedal. I bought it a couple of months ago, and it instantly became my number 1 choice for gigs, practice, and leisure guitar playing. I play all kinds of rock music, and this pedal matches all of them. The sharp distortion and the damn hard overdrive make this pedal truly unique. I recommend it to everyone who wants to stand up with his rock music. Rock on!

Very Good

By casey-lOPJ-

from nashua nh

This box has a very high quality sound. I've owned many boxes and I think this one is the most versatile for the "affordable" ones. I like a lot of midrange, classic sound and its excellent for that. This gives a DS-1 sound for heavier power chords on the dist. mode but also gives you a great midrange lead in the overdrive mode. I'm picky about my lead sound its nice and crisp, no mud. I should mention the dis. overdrive mode is a knob and you can go any where in between. I just got this, I'm happy and I can finally forget about looking for a good, professional sound. I use an old Crate and a newer Peavey EFX amp if that helps.

nice distortion

By rokstar

from Narita, Japan

Very nice sound this pedal makes, particularly with combined overdrive and distortion. With this, you get a nice layered distortion, great for power chords. Great pedal.

pretty good pedal

By chris-e0VAN

from jersey

I got it mainly for the distortion since I had a small practice amp with useless distortion. Once I got a new amp with some nice gain on it, I noticed that it sounded a little muddy and it took away some tone from my clean channel, so I stopped using it.

What a Great Pedal

By Brian Linback

from Knoxville, Tennesee

This pedal is great. It works for everything from punk rock to heavy medal to classic rock. I highly recommend this rather than spending big bucks for something that this can do just as well, or maybe even better.
