The Boss ST-2 Power Stack is a hard rockin' amp stack in a compact pedal. Obviously it does not have a power amp or speakers, so you won't get the loudness of a 300W tube amp through two 4x12 cabs (unless you plug this pedal into one), but you will get the tone, dynamic response and rich overdrive sounds. This is a huge sounding pedal, and it even responds dynamically when you plug in a booster pedal to it, so you can push it exactly as you would push a tube amp and get a satisfying overdrive response.
The tones of the ST-2 range from clean/crunch 'on-the-edge' settings to metal 'chug'. 'On-the-edge' tones are where your lighter playing comes through clean, while your heavier plucks and strums tip into overdrive for a very dynamic performance, that is killer for rock ballads and guitar intros. Turn up the Sound knob to a medium setting and you'll start getting into true classic rock stack overdrive sounds, with punchy, crisp overtones and a warm fizz. Turn the Sound knob to Ultra and you get high gain, shred-friendly overdrive that'll give a pure metal chug and a lead tone that'll provide the brilliance and sustain needed for excellent sweep picking and tapping.
Boss have done it again with the ST2 Power stack. A pedal that offers all the gain levels and dynamic response of a classic stack, all achieved with just three knobs, and all encased in a heavy-duty metal body that will stand up to professional touring use.
