A complex pedal that is so simple to use the Boss BC-2 Combo Drive Pedal gives you a classic “AC-inspired” British combo-amp tone with the ability to change character at the turn of a knob. Set yourself up with vintage tone or go the other way for a clean tone, or change again for high gain - all from one pedal.
The Sound knob is the heart of this pedal giving you quick access to the Boss BC2 Combo Drive Pedals three sound modes: Clean, Crunch and Drive. Clean gives you a cleaner tone than the original “AC-inspired” British combo-amp could achieve. Crunch offers high-impact, singing lead tones. Drive replicates the sound of the original amp if an external booster had driven it, to produce even creamier, higher-gain tone.
Along with the all-powerful Sound knob the Boss BC 2 Combo Drive Pedal offers up further sound-shaping options in the form of a two-band EQ and level controls. These give you control over the lower and upper frequencies and, of course, the overall volume level.
As well as the fantastic sound modifications available from their pedals Boss are also known for the build quality of their equipment. The Boss BC-2 Combo Drive Guitar Effects Pedal is seriously robust, capable of decades of abusive use. Boss also back up their words with a five-year warranty if you register your pedal with them. Although hardwearing the pedal is also compact and surprising lightweight.
