OS-2: OverDrive/Distortion


The OS-2 gives players a choice of overdrive or distortion or lets them combine both--all in a single compact pedal. Its distortion maintains the subtle nuances of single-coil guitar pickups.

Flexible distortion pedal capable of producing blended overdrive/distortion sounds
Provides both "over-the-top" distortion sounds and less extreme overdrive tones for rhythm playing
Includes Level, Tone, Drive and Color controls for precise tonal shaping

Good pedal with a lot of features for a good price, but I find the distortion kind of fake sounding, and the overdrive doesn't have the same charm as something like a tube screamer would. This pedal does have advanced tonal capabilities though, which do allow you to really create good tones. The downside of this is that the pedal becomes more difficult to balance with other pedals on the board. This pedal provides easy switch on, switch off dirt, but I think the sound could be a little more genuine.

This pedal gives a great range of sounds and also gives some that other pedals don't, such as the combination of distortion and overdrive, but my favourite is the awesome hum of full distortion with zero tone

I love this pedal! It does any OD/ Distortion setting you might want. I like a nice overdrive sound with a little distortion. I set my color dial around 9 o'clock.

This friggin Pedal is AWESOME. I am not really a fan of distortion or Hi-Gain pedals .. but this pedal with the color knob lets me blend Overdrive with a sprinkle of Distortion .. and all in one box. SO WORTH THE MONEY. This pedal IS my RockNRoll Tone

The first time I tried this was with my Marshall DFX30 amp. I didn't like how it sounded. I wanted to return it and get a new one. But, when I tried it with a different and bigger amp (Marshall DFX250) I got to hear its real capabilities! It was good and so fun to use! Love it!
