Creamy, in-the-alley overdrive.
The Boss BD-2 Blues Driver Pedal gives you the classic, bluesy sound of an overdriven vintage tube amp in a compact pedal. The BD-2 gives you all the textures you need to scream, sing, or cry. Can also be used for warm distortion with a higher level of responsiveness than most distortion boxes. Controls for Gain, Tone, and overall Level. Great for blues and rock. Expect subtle overdrive to ripping amp tones from your Boss BD-2 Blues Driver Pedal.

Comments about Boss BD-2 Blues Driver Pedal:
The BD-2's is a fairly smooth sounding versatile overdrive (OD) that is capable of producing a wide range of OD effects that go from extremely subtle to quite hard. This pedal utilizes high-quality tantalum capacitors, which help preserve the subtle nuances and dynamics of your playing technique and results in a tone that cleans up well in response to light picking or ramping down your guitar's volume knob. Also, though I described the sound as smooth, it is "edgier" and has a wider dynamic range than the classic Tubescreamer type circuit. The BD-2 features a bright sound with a scooped midrange tone similar to a classic Fender Blackface amplifier pushed into overdrive. Through a clean amp, with the BD-2's gain knob set below 9:00 o'clock, you can totally nail Ed King's tone on Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Sweet Home Alabama. With the gain knob dimed, you can get a heavy fuzz tone reminiscent of Led Zeppelin's "Whole Lotta Love".
