What we say:

BOSS’s colourful stomp boxes are the most recognisable pedal range in existence. For over 40 years, guitarists from bedrooms to stadiums have put their boot down on a BOSS effect to transform their sound. Several models have passed into guitar legend and early examples can fetch extremely high prices. Happily, BOSS have maintained their stellar reputation for world-class effects in bomb-proof casing with their current range and have fended off the imitators for decades to remain the pre-eminent single pedal effects manufacturer in the business. If there’s an effect for guitar (or bass, vocals, keys…be creative!) then you can bet BOSS have a pedal of it in their range or even invented it outright! Every guitar player should get to experience the joy of selecting a pedal from BOSS’s exhaustive roster, plugging it in and unleashing their wildest sonic dreams.

For those players who love the DS-1's bite and attack but feel like they could handle even more gain, the next logical step will be this DS-2 Turbo Distortion. With two separate modes (footswitchable with an optional extra BOSS FS footswitch, available separately) that take you from relatively laid back distortion to a searing lead tone with tons of bite, sustain and mids, you can conceivably get all of your classic rock tones form this one pedal! There's a lot of pedal here for not a whole lot of outlay.


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
  • Boss 5-year warranty

boss have done it again with another belter of a distortion pedal also the turbo switch is the cats pyjamas

Just what I was after, tone wize; a distortion pedal to give the 'ole Fender Stratocaster that screeeeam, that searing lead tone Hendrix got from Isabella; his white Strat he took to Woodstock. Thats with the turbo set at 2, At 1 you get a lovely warm tone, reminiscent of germanium or silicon transistor fuzz pedals of the 60's with a smidgen less gain. Most vital, when I want distortion, is six individual, discernable notes to be heard together on power chords. You get this here however hard you crank it up, with no wall of mush. I recommend putting a good overdrive pedal in front of it, such at the Boss Super Overdrive SD-1 to shape your tone even further.
