Used Boss BD-2 Modified Blues Driver
The Boss BD-2 Blues Driver Pedal gives you the classic, bluesy sound of an overdriven vintage tube amp in a compact pedal. The BD-2 gives you all the textures you need to scream, sing, or cry. Can also be used for warm distortion with a higher level of responsiveness than most distortion boxes. Controls for Gain, Tone, and overall Level. Great for blues and rock. Expect subtle overdrive to ripping amp tones from your Boss BD-2 Blues Driver Pedal.
This pedal has been modified to have slight asymmetrical clipping. This mod gives you 2nd order harmonic distortion. This has a very musical sound. At very high saturation levels it almost becomes an octave type of sound effect.
I don’t really care for bass boosts in general so this switch is mild in its affect on your tone. The Phat mod also has silver mica caps, which reduce the noise of the pedal to lower than stock levels. If your unit has been modified to have the PHAT Switch, moving the switch up engages this tone. There is a slight bass increase felt when notes are played on the open E and A strings. Strum those strings while moving the switch back and forth to get an initial feel of the possibilities. It might be a good idea to turn the Phat switch off under really loud situations if there is too much low end in your sound.
