Get That British Combo ToneDo you want that sought after British combo tone? With the BOSS BC-2 Combo Drive, you can nail that classic AC-tone. The Sound knob lets you dial in that perfect amp sound from crisp and clean to punchy crunch to sustained overdrive. The BC-2 is a very touch responsive pedal, reacting like a real amp. Pick soft and it is clean, pick harder and it starts to drive. The BOSS BC-2 gives you an accurate representation of the classic British combo amps, but also provides harder-driven sonic territory where the originals couldn't go. Add a new British dimension to your rig with the BOSS BC-2.

Best "Vox in a box" out there!
by Jeff H from Twin Cities, MNIf there's a better "Vox in a box" pedal made, I've yet to find it. I've owned the Catalinbread CB30 and Joyo AC Tone. I've heard good things about the Tech21 Liverpool. But the Boss Combo Drive is... read more [+] absolutely phenomenal. It is NOT just an overdrive pedal. It operates a sparkly clean boost with the "Sound" knob counter-clockwise. Turn it up a bit and you get that classic AC30 breakup tone similar to The Edge. In the higher gain settings, it can do a pretty convincing "Top Boost" Brian May tone.

But my favorite settings are the Clean or only slightly overdriven settings. I've heard many people dismiss this pedal because it's made by BOSS and it's "just another Tubescreamer". Nothing could be further from the truth. It transforms the sound of your amp. It is truly a modeling pedal, but unlike other (more expensive modeling pedals), you can get the Vox tone you want with just a two-band EQ and the Sound knob. Highly recommended! close [-]
Convincing Tone and Feel

This box does the trick! It has a very convincing AC tone and more importantly, feel. It changes character as you dig into the strings, or if you roll off the volume knob on the guitar....reacts just like an amp.
For what I want, I just use it in the lower gain stage, around 10-11 o'clock, and it just nails that Vox semi-clean tone without being too bright or brittle. It does have a lot more gain and saturation past 12 oclock, which is interesting but I really prefer the lower gain character.
Nice job Boss....there are a million OD and distortion pedals out there but this one fills a need and sounds great . close [-]
favorite drive/distortion pedal
by Dwight from Columbia, MOThis is the most versatile distortion/overdrive pedal I own. It's great for both lead and rhythm. It seems to have elements of distortion and overdrive working together, with heavy chords like an am... read more [+]ped up tube screamer and for liquidy solos with sustain similar to that on the DS-1. Sounds especially good for bluesy hard rock ala Guns and Roses, Allman Brothers. Decent metal sound is possible with bass and treble on pedal up and mids on amp scooped. close [-]
