This is one of the very best pedals that Boss ever made. It has the normal contl knobs as you would see on many overdrive and distortion pedals from Boss. But it also has a turbo switch to go from a mild distortion to the turbo distortion. Many say that this revision of this pedal had more distortion but they sound pretty close to the same. The next feature that is visible was remote input to connect a remote foot switch to control the turbo on and off. I like to keep the turbo in the ON position. I think I read somewhere that Edge always had it on. So therefore I did as well. The On position for the turbo is where this pedal shines anyway. I would have my Gain up to around 12:00 ad the tone around 11:00 and the Level at unity level to my amp tone.

To get a good classic rock run this pedal with a MArshall amp of some kind and a nice Gibson Les Paul. The coolest part of this pedal is getting a great classic rock tone when you jump the channels of a plexi or JMP Marshall amp. They just work and sound fantastic together.

I would also suggest running this pedal in front of a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe with a good quality delay in the mix.. Same result as the Marshall and it will sound great! This pedal is easy to get a good valve sound of of it. All you need to do is get it in front of an good amp and it will do the work for you.


These pedals were made by Boss from 1994 to 1999 so the used market is the only way to go at this point. These are great pedals to get a good classic rock tone from. I would recommend this pedal to anyone who uses an overdrive pedal in front of there amp and needs a good boost to get their amp sizzling. This pedal will do that in spades. It is an easy pedal to dial in and you will be cranking out tones with ease as so as you find that perfect sweet spot.
