Great beginner dirt pedal
I used this as my main distortion sound as a novice guitarist with only a cheap 10-wat solid-state amp. Then I discovered what valve amp distortion was. I kept it around for several months afterward, but I ultimately let it go in service of cleaner closet space and a less crowded pedalboard.
Can of bees
We call it the "Can of Bees" because I always pump the tone knob up a little too high. It's a great pedal, I've gotten a lot of nice sounds with a few different guitars now, and it keeps up real well. I like the seperate drive knob, because it lets you throw overdrive on top of distortion to get a big wave of noise.
Its bloody amazing
If you need a pedal give you sounds of punk, pop punk, light metal and a few other genres. this pedal will literally save your life. Get this and you'll soon never want to go back to just using that shitty overdrive on your amp.
A good crossover pedal for those heavy tones.
So I understand where some may rather have an OD and a distortion pedal individually so they can have control between the two, but for me the sounds I can get from a bluesy pushed growl to that thick chunky DS-1 distortion is absolutely amazing. I fully support this pedal.

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 built-in 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.
