  • Boss ST-2 Power Stack

    Boss ST-2 Power Stack - "An amp channel in a box that's hard to make sound bad."

    08/22/12

    The BOSS ST-2 Power Stack compact pedal is a new and I would dare say revolutionary compact pedal. Not necessarily an overdrive, not necessarily a distortion, it is a pedal that can serve as the overdrive/gain channel to a single-channel amp, or an a…

  • Boss DS-1 Distortion

    Boss DS-1 Distortion - "Boss DS-1 Tried and True for basic Distortion tone"

    08/08/12

    No rocket science in the features of the Boss DS-1, just straight ahead fizz when you need it. Three easy to use controls for tone level and distortion. That's as straight forward as it gets. Well made and instruction manual is more than sufficien…

    Boss DS-1 Distortion - MountAnDewMe's review

    07/21/12

    The Boss DS-1 is a distortion based effect. It is used to add an analog type distortion to a guitar signal before use in an amplifier. This distortion has been around for many years and has remained unchanged though it's production life. The …

    Boss DS-1 Distortion - "An Instant Classic"

    06/20/12

    The Boss DS-1 is a simple, dirty, and crunchy distortion pedal. It's a compact little killer. The thing has murderous sounds. It reproduces dynamics very accurately and has an awesome tone. It's a very simple unit to use and runs on a 9V battery or a…

  • Boss ST-2 Power Stack

    Boss ST-2 Power Stack - nickname009's review

    02/26/12

    From fat crunch to ultra high-gain distortion, the ST-2 Power Stack delivers famous BOSS distortion with a stunning amount of power that’s akin to coveted tube amps and professional amp stacks. The SOUND knob simultaneously blends gain amount and sou…

  • Boss DS-1 - Pro Mod - Modded by Analog Man

    Boss DS-1 - Pro Mod - Modded by Analog Man - "Analogman's take on the DS-1"

    01/13/12

    Keeley has been a long time modder of Boss pedals, but so has Analogman. Mike has created some wonderful pedal mods, and his tend to sound a bit more towards the vintage side of things. This mod he does turns the DS1 into an almost boost like pedal…

  • Boss DS-1 Distortion - Ultra Mod - - Modded by Keeley

    Boss DS-1 Distortion - Ultra Mod - - Modded by Keeley - "Much more versatile"

    01/13/12

    This is probably the most famous DS1 mod out there. Keeley is one of the top modders in the field, and he has all kinds of pros using his pedals. The DS1 has always been one of those "go to" distortion boxes, but I always found it to sound very "pe…

  • Boss MT-2 Metal Zone - Twilight Zone - Modded by Keeley

    Boss MT-2 Metal Zone - Twilight Zone - Modded by Keeley - "Workable MT-2"

    01/09/12

    The MT-2 is pretty notorious in the guitar world. It gets tons of flak for being a very buzzy and overly compressed pedal, and a lot of that flak is warranted. It's not the most musica pedal in the world, and it certainly won't win any awards in th…

  • Boss HM-3 Hyper Metal

    Boss HM-3 Hyper Metal - "Not quite as good as the HM2"

    11/29/11

    When the HM-2 was discontinued, Boss decided to try to recreate a similar pedal with the HM-3. It's like the bastard child between the HM-2 and the MT-2. It was the transitioning period, and as a result, it's not quite as good as either of the peda…
