I am a big fan of the Boss OD-2. I have always liked the turbo switch on the pedal. It mixed very well with a Marshall JMP and using the jumper cable. I wold get some great classic rock tones with that setup. This one is the newest revision to the overdrive Boss OD pedals. This one removed the turbo switch and went with only three control knobs like many of their other pedals. This one however has a lot more gain on tap compared to the old Boss OD-2. So therefore the turbo switch is within the sweeping control of the gain so you will be able to dial that turbo in with the gain control knob.

SOUND QUALITY

This is a great pedal to thrown in front of a high gain amp. You will get a similar response to the Boss SD-1 where the tone just jumps out in the mix a lot better. Those two pedals are very different voiced pedals but the reaction from the amp will be very similar. So if you like the way the Boss SD-1 sounds and reacts to your Marshall amp or whatever, you might like how this one does the same thing.

This pedal has a good sweeping tone that you can dial this thing into a good booster pedal by lowering the gain and boosting the volume or level. This will be good driving the front of your already overdriven amp. Or you can run the gain all the way up and get that pedal in front of a Fender Hot Rod amp and you will get some great rock tones.

OVERALL OPINION

At new these pedals come in right at around $80. which is a great deal on a very good sounding pedal. This is a good pedal for a budgeted consumer who needs to push his or her amp into overdriven territory. I would recommend this pedal to anyone who9 has a Marshall amp and wants to get a higher gain tone out of it. This is a great pedal for that.
