« "Two Overdrives In One" »Published on 05/30/20 at 13:37
My Boss OD-2 Turbo Overdrive gives my guitar tone a really pleasant smooth Gain tone. When I play at home through my Blues Rig I have the level set at about 12:00, the tone set at 02:00, the gain level on (10), and I set it for Overdrive Mode. This sounds a lot like my Boss OD-3 only better because as other reviewers have mentioned the "Turbo" mode really lights up the Gain. It really is like having (2) OD's in (1) pedal.I find this pedal to be quiet at idle, harmonically rich, soft overdrive tone, pinch harmonics at ease, and good note definition. I would say it adds a great deal of sustain which is great. I play along to Black Sabbath, AC/DC, Thin Lizzy, and Bad Company records and this pedal can cover all of those guitar tones. The "pros" of this pedal is the "Turbo" mode. The "Cons" could be no remote with to toggle between OD and Turbo however I don't really mind reaching down to turn the Turbo mode on.
If you can find one I highly recommend this Boss OD-2 Turbo Overdrive.
