Boss OD-200 Hybrid Drive Overdrive Pedal
Boss OD-200 Digital Delay Pedal Overview
"The 200 Series are Boss' most user friendly, but advanced pedal range on the market. It shares the same DSP high definition sound from the 500 Series, but with a more hands-on approach. We've reduced the footprint of the pedal, so you can squeeze it onto the prime realestate on your pedalboard. We have put a mini TRS MIDI connection to allow to you communicate and sync with external gear. Each pedal in the 200 Series has an expression input, allowing you to explore some much more interesting sounds than your usual effects pedals. The 200 Series also comes with a 3 year warranty and lifetime tech support with myself." GAK's Roland/Boss Product Specialist, James Purvis.
The Boss OD-200 Hybrid Drive brings next-level sound, feel, and flexibility to overdrive and distortion, combining decades of BOSS tone expertise with innovative technologies. This dream pedal is capable of producing any drive tone you can imagine, offering 12 unique modes, hybrid analog/digital circuitry, three-band EQ, and powerful pre and post boosts for ultra-detailed gain shaping. There’s even an advanced gate circuit on board, ideal for both eliminating noise and adding tightness and aggression to high-gain drive tones.
With the 200 Series, BOSS introduces a new generation of pedals that pack advanced sound and versatility into a streamlined size that saves space on your board. Grab-and-go controls and multi-function switches make operation easy and intuitive, while onboard memories allow you to store multiple setups for instant recall. All 200 Series pedals feature premium audio quality with 32-bit AD/DA, 32-bit internal processing, and 96 kHz sampling rate, as well as support for additional control via external switches, an expression pedal, or MIDI.
A versatile pedal that will cover many bases. The TS and Centaur clones are very close to but not the same as the originals imho but the overall versatility and the boost option gives it a place on my board. Great value for money too.
Great sounding pedal that incorporates the sounds of all the Boss classic overdrives and distortions in one box. Pretty straightforward to use - but you can go a bit deeper if you want to use the boost function as well. The fact that this has low, high and mid tone controls means that you have even more tweakability than the original pedals which is a real bonus. I have a few of the original pedals as well and this captures their sound/feel pretty convincingly. I like this pedal a lot - it sounds great and gives you a lot of versatile overdrive/distortion tones for the price.
Great range of Overdrives and distortions in one box. Looks great on any pedal board ... it’s BOSS but like a tank (Need I say more).
