Overdrive / Boost in a small metal box very strong yellow signed BOSS.
Analog, three knob: Level / Drive / Tone.
A guitar input, one output.
9V battery or transformer (not supplied).


Configuration issue, it is very simple. The manual does not give any examples of setting, it must rely on its small cages honey. The possibilities are varied.


For my part I use more overdrive with à8/10 Drive (about ...) and Tone 6/10. The level 4 and max and roll my chicken. Solo I can achieve a sustain on my guitar almost infinite times without any added effect and rhythmic Rock is aggressive, but it is not a distortion.


I hang mine for over twenty years and it is still there. When you say it is solid, it's not a joke. I did see him in all colors and despite that it is still part of my pedalboard.
This is not my main purpose, but I have no desire to part with because it is very useful to complement my big distos very heavy.
