So today’s question “What’s the best distortion / overdrive pedal available today?” got me thinking a little bit. There were at least two mentions of the Boss OS-2 Overdrive / Distortion pedal, so I thought I’d take a closer look.
The pedal seems quite cool, giving you the option of using distortion or overdrive.. but giving you the ability to ‘blend’ the two using the color knob. The pedal (as with many Boss pedals) is quite affordable at $69.00.
Here is the official description:
The Boss OS-2 OverDrive/Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal delivers killer separate overdrive and distortion effects that you can combine for cool blended effects! This integration gives you more options than using serially connected units. Best of all the OS-2 is designed to provide raunchy, hard distortion while maintaining the nuances of single-coil pickups. Level, Tone, Drive, and Color controls offer plenty of tweakability.
Boss OS-2 Overdrive/Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal Features:
- Smooth overdrive and hard distortion
- Combine and blend for unique sounds
- Works great with single-coil pickups
- Level, Tone, Drive, and Color controls
I was pleased to find another gearmandude video demo’ing the pedal. I’ve played that Tiny Terror Orange head in the past, and that little guy can get it done.
