Messbel's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" A modified DS-1 Boss ... For!"

UTILIZATION

see below

SOUND QUALITY

The DS-2 is actually a modified DS-1 Boss, long before the time of keeley and other Monte Allums.
Mode 1 is a DS-1, however, the output level and tone circuit have been revised, because the pedal has slightly more volume, the tone is more exploitable than a DS-1 and the beach distortion is a little wider, to note that the DS-2 also responds much better volume knob on the guitar, and this is a highlight for me of this pedal.
Mode 2 is the principal element, it is actually a switch that can boost medium (controllable via footswitch), very dug on the DS-1, and thus to obtain a range of all additional sounds really interesting.
This shows that the DS-2 is actually much more complex than a DS-1, this is what probably explains his lack of success with many guitarists, not knowing very well make a guitar sound and therefore more comfortable with the pedals to the settings and options more basic.

OVERALL OPINION

It gives me a very good pedal, DS-1 is a myth but the DS-2 is a real success if viewed for what it is namely a modified DS-1 via a switch and some components such as today would do some brands of pedals shops or modification of effects.

We must therefore spend time there, the settings may be subtle but it's really a very good distortion pedal that allows all records to play blues-rock (Rory Gallagher eg mode 2 and drive light) very Rock ( Nirvana obviously seen the reserve of distortion and output level).

The Japanese versions are very rare, but the difference between-MIJ and MIT's like the DS-1 very light.

Mine is a Japanese, and I think I can screw it to the pedalboard!

Boss DS-2 TURBO Distortion (Japan)
Distortion very versatile with two modes, analog.

UTILIZATION

Very simple configuration has the potentiometer "standard" for distortion, tone gain level and of course the switch to switch to a turbo turbo 2.

SOUND QUALITY

My favorite distortion, I sold my Big Muff fuzz us my graphic and my sd-1 ..... sounds great with a strat japan!

OVERALL OPINION

I have been around 7 months and am still satisfied! as mentioned above is the one I prefer. But some of the other distortion were more expensive and even if they were good I prefer the one shown is a matter of taste!
pedal strongly advised but I could compare with pa taiwan ....
Now I have a deuxime

Boss DS-2 TURBO Distortion (Japan)
It is a distortion pedal, it has 2 mode.

UTILIZATION

It's a Boss pedal, so it's super simple:
4 knobs, volume, tone, dist, and the button to change the mode (I or II)

SOUND QUALITY

Then it really is a vamp, an absolutely sublime distortion whatever the method used.
I use it on my Squier Start with a wah wah and before c really great. That may be what you are looking for a long time. Nothing to do with the version made in Taiwan.

OVERALL OPINION

Really great, nothing to say. Its worth the cost, one small problem, it remains very dificil to find. May if you can it's really a case.

Boss DS-2 TURBO Distortion (Japan)
It's an analog distortion Harchies versatile.

UTILIZATION

There is simple: a level knob, one tone knob and a distortion knob (a donf obviously;)) In addition to a turbo mode that you got a dcuple your gain and your depth
you turn and then voila.

SOUND QUALITY

it's a true diso! Of metal (Black Sabbath way) has the brit pop (way blur) this pedal you will ever:)!
I use it mostly with a Start 'black beauty and a line 6 spider 2 (or a feder FM212R) and ba jpeu you say you're never dcus! Ah was not! You must find the sound you want: a big greasy and heavy distortion, a distortion ptite way many bed crunch

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for some months, having sold my ds APRS one Taiwan. Basically it is a ds with a pattern of more (turrrrrrbo;)) level distortion / overdrive is the top;)

EDIT: I now use it on an amp fender hot rod deluxe, Pete, and I have a new little lag rx 100, with two humbuckers, its pete too!
Finally I find that it is the top, the sound of the big muff is more typical and I find the SansAmp dchire more. short, by type of distortion is versatile that it is true.
