Reliability How has it stood up over time? eh! General Your general opinion of this product. Awesome Boss Quality! Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? This pedal is very ice pick sounding I played it with my Roland JC-120 loaded with Jensen tornado,and my FM212 Loaded with Jensen MOD 12-70's and I could not get a descent sound. The pedal is overly compressed most of the time and muddy,very digital, its horrible for playing chunk rhythms. But sounds great on solo notes and is very good on tele/strat single coils,muddy on bridge humbuckers and mind is not hot humbuckers, they are vintage wound on alder body maple neck. This pedal can sometimes feel very tight because of the higher voltage in the circuit. Anyways it might be great for strat and tele players who play alternative Rock,but I tried everything I can to get a killer sound for what I do and its just not happening for me so I sent it back. I have the original Boss DN-2 Dynadrive from 2007 and I could get a better sound out of that. DA-2 might work for you but did not do for me... Boss OD-3 is still my go to pedal for live and rehearsals going 7yrs now.
