Boss XT-2 Xtortion
- What are the effects or types of effects available?
It's a distortion pedal, classic.
- What technology is used? (Analog, digital, tube ...)


- The general configuration is it simple?
We can no longer.
- Publishing of sound effects or is it easy?
No problem: you can spend some time due to the addition of two knobs interesting punch and contour.
- The manual is clear and sufficient? ...
I tried to send a big "the toilet MANUAL !!!", yet it includes some examples of config that will guide the novice to classical sounds.


- Effects are they effective, responsive and realistic enough?
The distortion is more effective. This effect is suitable for the style of music I play (at the NIN distos). By playing Punch and contour, we get cool effects style Money for Nothing (yes, really), type of distos loud hard-rock 70's, or (and this is where I like) and rich in low distos NIN type.
- Which instruments do you use?
I play a Les Paul Standard and a Mesa Boogie Rectifier Dble. It hurts ...
- Which ones you prefer, you hate?
All is not good to take in this pedal and you have to spend a little time to adjust (it should be particularly wary of the amount of "punch" that is attributed to its sound. I put the knob 8 "punch" which the engineer's boss would deny access to more than 15 hours ...


- How long have you use it?
6 years now.
- What is so special that you like most and least?
Plus: big fat distos well. Cons: The distos the pedal can come by focusing too much "punch".
- Have you tried many other models before buying it?
I tested the Metal Zone, the Shredmasters, the Muffs, the TurboRats. Only with it I get this sound. Be careful with the hardware you use it. Good scratch, good amp a must!
- How would you rate the quality / price?
Exceptional purchased for less than 100 euros at the time.
- With experience, you do again this choice? ...
Without hesitation.
