The BD-2 Blues Driver compact guitar effects pedal is the perfect way to get that coveted thick and creamy blues sound, with just the right amount of crunch. Establishing itself as one of the most popular pedal in Boss' stompbox family, this delightful little beauty offers a quick route to a warm overdriven tone that breaks up in just the right way, a characteristic that is reminiscent of classic tube amps.

Creamy Blues to Hard Rock, and everywhere between

As with all Boss compact pedals, the Blues Driver is very easy to use. The connections offered are a single input and a single output jack on either side of the chassis. There are three control pots: LEVEL, TONE and GAIN. The LEVEL control allows you to attenuate the level of the effect against your dry guitar signal, so that when you initiate the effect, it comes at the level you desire. The TONE level adjusts the affected frequency levels so that you can aim for a fat, low thump, a powerful mid range punch, or a brittle yet bright high end slap. The GAIN pot allows you to dial in the perfect amount of bite, allowing you to go for subtle Hendrix-style fuzz to an all out desert rock barrage. Don't be fooled by the name "Blues Driver", players from any genre will appreciate the subtle tube-style warmth offered by this divine little box.

Tank-like Construction

Whether you're picking up the guitar for the first time ever, or regularly tour as part of a professional band, reliable and sturdy gear is a must. The Boss stompbox design is often copied but never equalled. As we've come to expect from the team at Boss, the BD-2 Blues Driver is built like a tank and tested to destruction. No matter how aggressively you treat this pedal, you can rest assured that you'll wear out before it does.

Posted on 02/10/2012 by I purchased this item about a year ago to add just an step of tone to my sound as my DS2 and MT1 were just too much for the soul band I had just joined, I thought of it as a stepping stone to get to slight bit of drive and then go to other pedals for lead playing, I was right and then discovered I was so wrong! My initial plan was working but after a bit of time sweeping the full range of each dial I soon realized how wrong I was, I had underestimated this pedal...a lot. This thing does everything! Used in conjunction with a switchable clean / drive amp you can achieve any sound you’re looking for! It will add a light drive akin to BB king to deep swelled overdrive like Jimmy H. and all points in-between. I play Soul/ Mow-town / blues / funk and use this pedal for different songs from all genres. It has become the most used pedal on my board,
