Boss came out with PN 2 tremolo/Pan pedal back in May of 1990 this was an interesting pedal at the time because it had a variation of different tremolo features. The original design had a pulsating speaker affect where this one has much more control over the overall painting mode.

With the Boss PN2 you has a rate and depth control knobs as well as a mode control which gives you for the mode operations. These modes consist of a pan in sawtooth, and square, a trim sawtooth or a tremolo squared wave. This will give you a variance in the tremolo feel and the way it round itself off as you play. This allows for a lot easier oscillation as well as the rhythmic tremolo to your's specific needs.



Controls: Rate, Depth, 4-way Mode switch
Connectors: Input A, Input B, Output A, Output B, AC Adaptor
Current Draw: 20 mA (DC 9V)
Recommended AC Adaptor: PSA Series


This pedal has a cool sound and really just emulates whatever your guitar sound is. So there's not a whole lot of modulation involved but you get more of how much tremolo or how little of the effect actually happens. This pedal sounds good when you are playing with a clean sitting in a cleaning up such as a Fender amp. You can get a good classic rock bluesy tone or even a good surf music style guitar tone with it .

This tremolo pedal also work very well with a high gain amplifier setting as well. They have to be used in middle you sometimes because this effect can be over dramatic and a little redundant sometimes. So I would say use it in certain situations and not really all the time.


This pedal was made for only five years and stopped manufacturing in March of 1995. You can find it easily on the used market because boss saturated the market with these pedals. I've seen them right around hundred dollars yourself. If they're in a better condition sometimes they fetch maybe $140. They're cool pedal and if you really like tremolo then there cool I don't have on your pedal board. Other than that if your not to use it that much and I would suggest buying this battle because it does degree your guitar signal because it is not true bypass.
