DS-2: Turbo Distortion


The DS-2 Turbo Distortion features twin modes for an expanded range of distortion--taking users from blues-rock rhythms to searing leads at the press of a pedal or twist of a knob.

Classic BOSS distortion tones with added Turbo modes
Turbo Mode I produces warm and mellow distortion with flat frequency response
Turbo Mode II provides biting distortion with a mid-range boost, perfect for leads
Built-in remote jack allows users to connect an external footswitch such as the FS-5L for instant, hands-free switching between modes

This Pedal is interesting. Its very versatile and definitely has a sound of its own. Definitely a favourite because of how versatile it is. Running it through the clean channel of an amp, you can go from a very light sprinkle of breakup , to a nice crunch(Think JTM-45 / Blackface Bassman) then it takes off into JCM 800/ Modded Plexi type gain. Very organic/amp like which is why I love it. Turbo mode is essentially the same amount of gain with a boost in the mids/high mids and almost has a cocked wah type of character, great for solo’s or something different. This pedal is really easy to dial in , but it also has some pretty cool secrets/tricks up its sleeve if you spend the time to find them!

Awesome distortion!!! Mode 2 is the best. Great for playing Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, Bush-X or any 90's Alt rock or grunge like tones!!! In fact pretty sure I read Kurt Cobain used this pedal in later albums, he played the DS-1 in earlier albums!

It's better than the ds1, but still not mind blowing. Amazing boss quality, but could be better.

This distortion has everything any lead rock guitarist would ever need. With the turbo I mode it still has a better tone and more distortion than the DS-1. Turbo II just makes it all the more better. The mids are way more prominent. I am a massive RHCP fan. I have based my entire musical career around the Frusciante sound. But the truth is it is way more diverse than that. This is my favourite distortion of all time. If you don't have it, you should get it A.S.A.P.!
