From Our Research Team:
Overdrive and Distortion - 2 Pedals in 1!With BOSS's popular OS-2 OverDrive/Distortion pedal, it's like having two in-your-face effects pedals in one. That's because, with it, you can produce all kinds of overdrive sounds, tons of distortion flavors, or a massive combination of the two. The OS-2 has four onboard controls (Level, Tone, Drive, and Color) which let you summon your sound. But, whether you drive it hard or give your tone just that perfect subtle crunch is up to you. Either way, you'll love the BOSS OS-2 with both single-coil and humbucking pickups.

BOSS OS-2 OverDrive/Distortion Pedal at a Glance:
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. You've also no doubt heard BOSS pedals recorded and onstage beneath the feet of bands of all genres, including Muse, The Killers, and Silversun Pickups. 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. So, whether you're a fresh-out-of-the-gate beginner, an axe-veteran designing your dream pedalboard, or anywhere in between, you can depend on BOSS's proven line of pedals to craft your tone.

I don't care what anybody says, this thing is awesome! Both in it's simplicity and it's sound. It's beautiful man!
