This pedal will now be the major stomp box for my recordings as well as on stage.

I have tried other Boss overdrive/distortion pedals without coming away with the ooh ah factor tied to them...that is until now. All of you Fender Twin reverb amp owners take notice. This pedal will give your Twin the guts you never thought it had or could have without sounding pretentious. I have loved my Fender Twin from the day I bought it. But something was always lacking when it came to going crunch time. Granted I know Twins were not built at the time for harsher edgier types of music, But with the power and tone behind this amp I figured something has to sound good and natural without feeling too mismatched. For the longest time my Ibanez tube screamers seemed like the only pedals that gave my Twin any personality until now. The Blues Driver goes the extra mile where my Tube screamer only teased. Dont be fooled by the name of the pedal, it really does rock with my Twin volume at 3 and the pedal level at 9:00, tone at 11:00, and gain all the way up!

Boss has always had rugged pedals. The name of this one doesnt do it justice.

Ease of Use
The full gain sound is what sold me. I didnt think the lighter gain sounds were easy to dial in as the Tube screamer.

I have never had a bad experience with a Boss product. read more

I think if the price was at about 59 bucks, I think they would be flying off the shelves. 79 bucks is abit too pricey for an overdrive pedal.

The Wow Factor
The sound is what sells this pedal. My Twin thanks Boss. But change the name of the pedal and lower the price a couple bucks.
