Have it your way with overdrive, distortion, or a blend of the two
Can't decide between overdrive and distortion or wish you could find the perfect place between the two? You've found your pedal. The BOSS OS-2 OverDrive/Distortion effects pedal lets you dial in a huge range of flavor. You can call up a fat distortion tone, then drive it hard. And you can dial in whatever range of color you like best. For tweaking, there are four controls in all: Level, Tone, Drive, and Color.
Preserves the subtle nuances of single-coil pickups
Some distortion pedals really hit you in the face (which is great) but many take away the subtle dynamics and nuances you love about your single-coil pickups. If you're feeling like your intricate playing is being lost to a huge wall of distortion, then you owe the OS-2 OverDrive/Distortion Pedal a shot. BOSS designed the OS-2 to give you that same huge distortion sound you love, while maintaining the detail in your single-coil sound. That said, it's going to give you a tremendous result when paired with your humbucking-equipped guitar, too.
BOSS guitar pedals: rugged, reliable, more than 10,000,000 sold
More than 10,000,000 BOSS guitar and bass effects pedals have been sold to players worldwide, including such top players as Yngie Malmsteen, Dave Navarro, John Petrucci, Marty Friedman, Steve Vai, and Joe Satriani.

The reason for the success is clear: not only do BOSS effects pedals sound great, but they're also built like tanks and designed with serious use in mind. Each BOSS pedal is housed in a stomp-ready metal box and features a rubberized stomp area and base, to help safeguard against slipping.
