Back in 2001 Boss set out to build a pedal that would entice low tuning and seven string players to the Boss distortion pedals. there has been this constant need for more distortion as music has changed. Me I find it silly to have that much distortion since you can't even hear the nuances of the playing anymore. But when you are playing the basically on two string and that first string is lowered to A# then I guess you don't care about dynamics and nuances. SO anyway Boss designed a pedal that would cater to the guy who need a ton of unusable but I suppose usable in their type of music.

SOUND QUALITY

First off since this thing has so much gain on tap that there comes a lot of noise. This pedal can be very noisy when you turn those double gain control knobs up pretty high. This pedal rally emphasizes the low end for the dropped tuning guys. There is even a control knob that effects the low end of the pedal.

The tone of this thing is very heavy. It get s load of distortion, but to me it is way too much and very noisy. It kind of bugs me how much noise is in this pedal. You will definitely have to have a noise gate or some kind of noise hum eliminator.

OVERALL OPINION

You can find these pedals new for right at around $89, which isn't a lot of money for a double distortion pedal. This pedal have more than enough gain for anyone to use in pretty much any situation. Some guys though will boost this pedal or the their rig even more because for some there is never enough gain.
