Your name or email address: And it will be on its way to Bob Bradshaw by weeks end for inclusion in my rack system which I hope to receive sometime this century. I play a John Suhr strat through a Carr Rambler clean fender amp. Inside it uses better quality components than the DD-5 so the sound and performance should be better. Thes are brand new Boss pedals in the original box with manuals, with our various mods. I have several Boss pedals that are 20 years old and don’t show any signs of slowing down. In Jason is using his pedal on tour with Norah Jones.

It is not a normal TONE circuit, even all the way down it is still quite bright. It tended to get harsh with my setup, and the tone control wasn’t useful.

From the Goss to Jeff Beck, Santana to Stevie Ray, many guitar greats have embraced the rotary-speaker sound on stage and in the studio. To mod them, you change the input volume pot to a value more appropriate for guitar. I am really happy with this pedal. I could throw this thing bods of the empire state building, and I bet it would still survive with barely a scratch.

My collaborator in Japan Ohbayashi sanand I came up with this mod as we knew there was real promise in the BD-2 pedal.

User reviews: Boss BD-2 Blues Driver – Modded by Analogman – Audiofanzine

Here is the youtube video. After the mod, it sounds like you are sweeping a parametric EQ or wah pedal. I thought the silver mod would be too expensive for this pedal but people really like the Boss pedals they are more reliable than the Ibanez. Regardless of how you use this pedal it is worth the price of admission. The clean boost is excellent, and you can dial in JUST the right amount of dirt without any shrillness.

The yellow SD-1 has the same basic design as a Tube screamer but with asymmetrical clipping. He is a modification technician, not a dealer. Anallgman TU-3 tuner replaced the TU-2 and we carry these now, to order go to buyanalogman.

I can’t comment on the manual, but this pedal is easy enough to use without having to look at the manual, especially considering all the example settings are now moot.

That said, I do not endorse throwing your pedals off of buildings. Like a Romanian Countess. Our mod actually removes a ton of high frequency noise from the pedal! This can be very useful. It allows using paypal in addition to several other payment methods including credit cards.

Here are some Japanese Reviews if you can read them! If you do this, you’ll get some nasty squealing. DD6 pedals be-2 die, and we can’t fix digital pedals. Use our Mod Form to send it in for the mod, it has prices for all these options. I don’t use the high gain settings as I find other pedals are a better fit in this area. There is a review up from early on All Things Strat Web site.


Just a true distortion sound, a lot less like the “fake” sound you often get out of a pedal. This is just to give you an idea bboss our pedals if you are familiar with the SD This is similar to what the high-end home audio guys routinely do when they buy a piece of equipment – they spend a few hundred dollars putting in the EXPENSIVE capacitors which lets the true sound come through.

After the mods they are smoother and less harsh, more musical, less like a pedal and more like a great cranked tube amp. You may have heard of a “C4 mod” – that by removing C4 from the circuit, the pedal is louder and sounds better.

Raw really allows you to hear subtle differences while the studio mix is great for hearing it with a band. But our customers are normally not going analomgan that loud, bright, and distorted of a tone so I have not heard any complaints yet. We’ve added some “new” guys to the moderator crew.
